Control For Smilers (A Phish Tribute)

Control For Smilers (A Phish Tribute)

Control for Smilers is Philly’s premier Phish tribute band, serving up an eclectic mix of driving rock and funk grooves to audiences in the tri-state area. Matt Agostini (Bass/Vocals) and Matt Elberson (Percussion/Vocals) lay down dance-friendly, funk-heavy grooves as Henry McGuigan (Guitars/Vocals) prays at the altar of Trey Anastasio’s signature guitar tone, all the while bringing his own hard rock edge to each jam. Brad Lukach (Keyboards/Vocals) seasons each tune by channeling his own interpretation of Page McConnell’s famous sounds and techniques. When the lights go down and the first note is struck, Control for Smilers fills dance floors with Phish fans and non-Phish fans alike.

In a world of conventional music, BAM has found an unconventional approach to fitting in. This Philadelphia collaboration exemplifies years of chemistry, providing a breath of fresh air to the music listener searching for artistry in music making.

Their natural talents allow for a colorful canvas of sound exploration; from funky grooves to light jazz to driving drum and bass. Their goal is not to pinpoint a genre, its to display advanced musicality, highlighting the array of possibilities that exist.

BAM approaches song writing with sophistication and technicality, challenging themselves to find simplicity in their methodology. The result is a collection of sounds captivating for the mind and pleasing to the ear.

BAM is also in the process of writing music that will be used by Network TV stations for national programming. Don't be surprised if you hear their work on a Sci-Fi program in the near future. BAM is currently working hard on their catalogue and will be touring in the near future. Keep an eye out.
