Villanova (formerly Weaving The Fate) turns rock 'n' roll upside down. Hailing from Columbia, SC, the band distills elements of rock and pop into a hypnotic hybrid. Villanova prides itself on making music with solid grooves and soulful, dynamic lyrics provided by lead vocalist/guitarist/song writer BC Villanova, fluid and funky bass lines by Bobby Dredd, and turntable wizadry and keyboards by DJ Able One.
Their infectious sound has earned them thousands of fans nationwide. Villanova, currently independent, was previously signed to Universal Republic (now Republic) and recorded their 2012 debut "WTF the EP" in LA with super producer Howard Benson (Papa Roach, Daughtry, Hoobastank, Seether). They have shared the stage with everyone from Korn, Shinedown, Evanescence, Slash, AWOLNATION, Staind, Chevelle, Filter, Crossfade, Dirty Heads, Nappy Roots, REHAB, and the list goes on.
They've been called contemporaries of bands such as AWOLNATION, Imagine Dragons, and Panic At The Disco where heavy rebellion meets pop sensibilities. B.C.'s confessional lyrical prose mixed with the band's technical chops makes for an explosive live experience.
"Going to a SUPER bob show is like getting on a f'ing roller coaster,
they rock your ass off and you can't wait to get back on."
-Whitney (On Air personality) DC 101
... SUPER bob is a four-piece high energy rock band based in the
Washington DC area. Childhood friends Adam Smith (guitar) and Matt
Santoro (vocals) formed the band, under the name "bob" in '05 with
the vision of bringing something fresh to a rock scene that seemed to
have forgotten what rock n roll was really about. Soon after, they
added Drew Recny (bass) and Chris Faircloth (drums). This band
breathes rebellious authenticity back into music and reminds you that
rock music is supposed to make you get up and not give a damn about
When you see SUPER bob live your senses will be overwhelmed by a
borderline excess of stage presence and heart pounding sound. P.R.S
sponsored guitarist Adam Smith brings a package of uniqueness, flare,
and pure adrenaline that is rarely found in any one musician, while
classically trained Drew Recny packs a clean, punchy bass style that
is loaded with obvious talent and a technique that only comes with
full dedication and commitment to his craft. Christopher Faircloth, a
Spaun Drum Company sponsored drummer, brings an almost indescribable style
to the table, one with high flying stick tricks, and hard pounding,
ear deafening, strong beats. The proverbial icing on the SUPER bob
cake is provided by Matt Santoro's vocals which can only be described
as unabashedly his own. Full of ear catching melodies, unapologetic
and blatantly honest lyrics, and a flow that is uncommon yet
undeniably at home in rock, Santoro's songwriting couples with an
unrivaled stage presence that caps off one of the best live bands you
will ever get the chance to experience.
SUPER bob's buzz was established with their eye
catching live shows, non-stop hustle, and no excuses work ethic.
Tattoos, colored hair, dread locks, and plenty of good old fashioned
rock n roll grit distinguishes them from the undedicated and
identifies them as the real deal in an industry riddled with fakers.
After three years of hard work at gaining recognition, winning the
loyalty of fans in their local scene, and growing a fan-base across
the Mid-Atlantic, SUPER bob hooked up with Grammy nominated producer
Garth "GGGarth" Richardson. They went to Vancouver BC to record their
first full length record entitled "bbbob" and then hit the road for the
next three years playing an average of 130 shows annually over a span
of 19 states.
Having just released their second full length record (Rock N Roll) in
the spring of 2010, SUPER bob stands prepared to release a third full
length in the summer of 2011. Produced by Matt LaPlant at the Bieler
Brothers studios in Pompano Beach FL, the new SUPER bob album promises
to blow minds and take the rock game to whole new dimensions. This
band grows in exponential steps and has a collection of recorded songs
that they can proudly boast is only surpassed by the full-effect of
attending a live show. Keep your eyes and ears open for this uniquely
amazing band. You won't be sorry.
"I have seen over 7,500 bands in the last fifteen years, and SUPER bob
is one of the best. Never have I seen a band gain fans so quick and
rock it on stage with such energy. They will woo grandmas to teenies"
