8-9pm: Gallons of Pork - Progressive / Rock
Stumbling into a chance opportunity after a friend booked them headlining a live show at a local house party; Gallons Of Pork legitimized themselves after beginning as a comical concept shared only between four friends. After dominating the show, the rush of support for their music inspired this group of college students from SUNY Oneonta’s Music Industry program to continue practicing, jamming and hamming it up, all in pursuit of bringing the Pork to the people!
Pushing the boundaries of what’s acceptable versus what’s accessible – Gallons Of Pork blurs the lines between genres with versatile music that’s highly addictive, loaded with chemicals, packaged and ready to serve. Getting their basement groove on, they recorded their debut album Meat The Band, and released a highly-acclaimed sonic-adventure that ranged from the weird to even more bizarre with songs that incorporated their improvisational & multi-genre instincts into the freshest new sound you could hope for from farm to table.
Keeping it 100% DIY, Gallons Of Pork have truly built their career from the ground up. With intense music-theory backgrounds and an attitude fueled completely by sarcasm and perversion they combine extreme elements of metal, punk, funk and more into massive instrumental jams and innovative, improvised songs designed to shake the hanging meat right off the hooks. Currently comprised of the ruthless talents & skills of Joe Kaplan (Vocals, Guitar), Mo Sadique (Guitar), Frank Cicciarello (Bass), Mike Sanbeg (Drums), and new member Peter Grancio (Vocals, Misc) – Gallons Of Pork are making meaty music for mass consumption.
