Ron Gallo is a rock and roll trio lead by a tall, big-haired weirdo of the same name. As the former frontman of Toy Soldiers, Gallo spent a decade as a fixture in the burgeoning Philadelphia music scene. Now solo, Gallo is completing his second full-length record Heavy Meta. Embracing his love for fuzz, psych, garage, and early punk, Heavy Meta is a stark contrast to the "Harry Nilsson-meets-Father John Misty" sound of the previous record RONNY.
After undergoing a shattering year of love, loss, purging, and a musical reinvention, Gallo sought a change of scenery and a fresh start. Drawn to the rock 'n' roll music currently being made by his friends in back alleys of Tennessee's "Music City," Gallo and his very own record label American Diamond Recordings relocated to the Bordeaux neighborhood of Nashville on New Years Day 2016.
Throughout his career, Toy Soldiers and solo combined, Gallo has released three full length records and three EPs working with various small independent labels in Philadelphia and New York City. He has shared the stage with legends such as Wanda Jackson, Dr. Dog, Deer Tick, Dr. John, The Walkmen, J. Roddy Walston, among others. Gallo has previously been featured among USA Today's "Bands to Watch," Paste Magazine's "Philly Bands You Should Listen to NOW" and has garnered appearances on PBS SUN Studio Special, Daytrotter, Audiotree, and many more.
On stage, Gallo is a force to be reckoned with. He is a true showman with a knack for grabbing the audience's attention and leaving them in awe. He sings his ass off and thinks it's important to laugh at yourself.
Multi-instrumentalist, psychedelic enthusiast, and self-proclaimed cult classic Jude Shuma is a proud native of Chicago IL. Raised on the city's outskirts, Jude has been on a one-way street since birth. His voice and personality blends seamlessly with washed-out melodies and songs that invites the audience bask in a certain warmth like a late Summer's day.
