Stealing Volume
Stealing Volume
Stealing Volume formed in 2007 uniting musicians from several local bands. The first official line up included Ben Schimmel (Dirty Little Secrets & The Jabs) on guitar and vocals, Lanny Boles (Lines of Nazca & NowhereGoodFast) on lead guitar, David Barajas (State & Extra Blue Kind) on bass guitar and Scott Tolley (NowhereGoodFast & 19Clark25) on drums. They solidified their sound and checked into The Music Garage to record what would become a very highly regarded 5 song demo release. Later that year the band won the “Best New Band Award” from Punk Rock Night, an over 10 year old national and local punk showcase taking place weekly at the Historic Melody Inn on Saturday evenings. David excused himself from the band when he and his wife were blessed with their first child. Scott Lamb hailing from The Giggies (a band featuring punk rock legend Bruce Stuckey from Toxic Reasons) was then welcomed into the band on bass guitar. David still has close ties with the band and joined them recently in the studio to help finish what will soon become their debut LP. Stealing Volume plays regularly locally and regionally and has garnered a loyal and enthusiastic fan base.
Kill City
Kill City
Kill City was formed in the summer of 2004 by Johnny SeX, Kevin Apgar, Rick Three, Turbo and Greg Beale. The band has an in your face style and approach that combines several different influences such as '77 style punk, 70’s glam, '80s sleaze and blues based rock n roll resulting in an absolutely explosive live show. They quickly rose to prominence making a huge dent in the local/regional Ohio scene releasing their own four song EP titled "Destroy All Whitebelts" (which sold out almost immediately) and have opened for such notable national and international acts as The Bronx, Electric Frankenstein, The BellRays, The Biters, Broken Teeth, American Dog and Gito Gito Hustler to name a select few.

Locally, the band has been featured in magazines like CityBeat and CinWeekly, and were featured on the cover of CityBeat recognized as a co-headliner for Cincinnati’s biggest and longest running punk festival, Cincy Punk Fest. In 2006 Kill City were proudly nominated for best punk artist at the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. The band were also featured in the well respected UK based Classic Rock Magazine and were handpicked by none other than Sleazegrinder himself to be included on the accompanying compilation titled "Sons of Guns" which contained original songs from several modern day artists who were strongly influenced by Guns N' Roses. The band has since released a self financed debut disc in 2008 titled "I’ll Keep Telling The Same Lie… ...One Day You’ll Believe It."

That release contained 7 songs full of hooks and hard hitting guitar laden rock and roll featuring Rick Three as the main vocalist.

As time passed, personnel changes were endured and after the untimely passing of late drummer Jason May, Kill City decided to take a necessary hiatus but returned again in late 2014 with a new lineup consisting of the return of Johnny SeX to front the band, Kevin Apgar still at the guitar spot, Sean Rokken once again claiming the drum throne and new member but longtime friend Sean Sleaze manning the bass slot and just in time for a second CEA nod. In 2015, Nato Halley replaced Sean Sleaze and the band continues to consistently separate themselves as cold blooded sonic assassins. Kill City is poised for yet another thrill ride on their own Rock n' Rollercoaster. Jump on, strap yourself in and enjoy the ride.
