Watch & Listen

Straight out of New York City, East's Pop/Rock sound is fresh and alive with hard hitting lyrics, powerful vocals, driving lead guitar, smooth bass, and energetic drums. The band has an EP, I May Be Dreaming now on sale on iTunes and is currently recording their latest songs (This Kind of Love, Keep it a Secret and Stay with Me, and more) for a new LP to be released later this year. Band members are Mike Guzowski (lead vocals/guitar), Mike Valente (lead guitar/vocals), Vince Randazzo (bass guitar) and Joe Jensen (drums). Come and see the show!

The passion and energy embedded in AYo’s lyrical content and performance presence commands attention and has captured the eyes and ears of both the hip-hop and spoken-word poetry communities. He’s served on a panel with the likes of Lupe Fiasco, interviewed Russell Simmons for MTV, and toured nationally; performing at legendary venues like the The Shrine, Nuyorican Poet’s Café, Stanford University, and Mendelssohn Theater at the University of Michigan.

AYo and The AY0INM0TI0N band play energetic live hip-hop music on a bed rock of jazz/afrobeat/soul infused instrumentals. Drawing from AYo's powerful lyrics and charismatic stage presence, the band is personified by amazingly talented musicians who believe that showmanship goes hand in hand with musicality. The lyrical content in AYo's music illustrates his experiences as a child growing up during military tyranny in Nigeria and subsequently moving to the inner city of Flint, Michigan. AY0INM0TI0N is a band to watch, feel and experience. His 5-piece band features a back-up vocalist, bass, guitar, keyboard, drums and an occasional horn section.

Lyrics about life, love and paranoia meet four keyboards of perfect sound. Monster-huge bass lines and a trumpet-wielding frontman bring together a brave new look into the heart of rock music.

Formed out of the Lehigh Valley, Bethlehem, and Philadelphia PA, The Great SOCIO flaunts a unique brand of synth and bass led groove rock. They are influenced by bands like the Doors, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Cake, and Incubus.

The Great SOCIO came together out of a belief that there was a great deal more to making music than just “the band," that the unifying experience of music has a holistic power that can't be confined within a band's arbitrary boundaries. Their ceaseless dedication to this concept- constant collaboration with special guests, tireless devotion to their fans, and commitment to providing an unforgettable live experience- continually expands the Great SOCIO. Wherever there are people who live for music, the Great SOCIO aims to be.

How will YOU be a part of the Great SOCIO?

The Great SOCIO is about recreating the feel of Classic Rock meshed with catchy hooks for the A.D.D generation. They are best described as a combination of Late 60's Jazz Fusion with 70's Acid Rock and Modern Alternative Rock. The sound draws influence from bands such as The Doors, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Rage Against the Machine. The band has built a solid following throughout the Philadelphia region. The Great SOCIO takes pride in their work and continue to promote themselves as a band you need to know.
