will be shutting down Monday, October 29, 2018.

It's with great sadness that I announce that Syracuse Bands will be shutting down at the end of this month. It's been awesome building and managing this site since 2005. Through the years I've been proud to host this site for all local musicians and helping to promote them. However, over the last handful of years, there have been fewer users on the site, and more bands are joining other platforms with a larger audience. These, along with a few other reasons, I've decided to close down the site.

Thank you all for using the site and being a part of Syracuse Bands.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out -

Syracuse Bands - fazeshift


Pizza, pies, purple skies...All things that enveloped the lives of two, narrow-minded gents who stood in the shanky bedroom of a house surrounded by angry neighbors and stray cats, recording meaningless meanderings and tid-bits of scrappy music. On the bitter cold, star-crazed night of February the 18th, Joey Bolognone and Josh Salvage, along with their long treasured friend, John McLaughlin, and new vegetarian friend, Alec Gilfillan, gathered together with a few immature, self-written tunes and a bundle of covers from glorious pop rock bands. From that day forward, this group of misfits knew that they were destined to travel the dirty allies of our beautiful nation, telling tall tails of life, love and forgiveness for the everyday broken heart.
