"The Wheals strive to transcend a genre specific definition. Elements of reggae, gospel, folk, rock and country illustrate the band’s sound. The Wheals, with their new release, “Diamond Time” display refreshing originality as well as mature musicianship."
"The Wheals hail from Pittsburgh, but the five-piece rock band is no stranger to Johnstown. Drawing from influences such as The Kinks, Little Feat and Gram Parsons, the band has been seen at various Johnstown venues and festivals, in addition to regular club shows in Pittsburgh, Erie, Morgantown and Cleveland. Members are TJ Connolly, Brad Barron, Jake Brieding, Joe Piacquadio..."
