Nameless in August is a folk rock band from Pittsburgh, PA. The band got their start when, lead singer, Zach Rock met banjoist, Jason Buzon at a Brookline, Pa coffee shop. The two made plans to meet later that week and they began writing music from the first session they had and have continued to do so since April of 2011. Later on in October of 2011, Patrick McGinley joined the duo that was playing out as Nameless in August. Patrick heard the two as they were hosting an open mic night at a South Side bar in Pittsburgh called The Blind Pig. A bar in which Patrick lived above. A friend that was with Patrick that night persuaded him walk up the stairs from the bar and grab his instrument and jam with the two just for the night, just for fun. But he is yet to leave. Nameless in August gigged heavily around Pittsburgh as a three piece band from winter 2011 to summer of 2013 but in May of 2013 the dynamic of the band would be changed forever. Jeremy Colbert, a music major out of Shenandoah University and active musician in the Pittsburgh scene, caught word of a show he should check out of a band he might like. It was an Nameless in August show. Jeremy sat in the front row that night and experienced the band live. He was a fan. He knew of their open jam night on Tuesdays in the South Side, so he starting showing face there. He began to study Ni8's material and he learned it well. The next two years shaped the foundation of Nameless in August . They played out relentlessly as a folk/rock band without a drummer. The fans they gained over that time didn't mind missing a beat. Thats just who they were. Until the Summer of 2014.
Just as NiA was releasing their first album, they looked ahead at the venues and festivals they were playing that year and felt they wanted a bigger, fuller sound to their music. "I can't say that I thought Mike was a temporary addition or just a 'lets try this out' guy because we've played with drummers in the past and felt we were better off without it. But he was eager to learn our material and knew a lot of the songs the first time we rehearsed" (-Zach Rock on drummer and long time friend of Jason's, Mike Brunch.) "It really takes a special person to fit into this music that has been performed so long without a drummer and not come off abrasive to the band and the fans". Throughout the Summer of 2014 Mike Brunch drummed with the band and fit seamlessly. The transition worked and that summer Ni8 got its groove. Now the band is embarking on taking their music to the people and hitting the road with the release of their first studio recording, "Wheelhouse".Ω
