June 8th – Crashing Angels

Formed from the vision of guitarist Neil Park; whose first task was to find a singer/songwriter that could take the music to that higher level. Dean Marshall Pilkey was that singer. His talent of taking musical melodies and making them his own, complimented the writing style of Neil Park. Next on board were bass player Kent Benson, and drummer Bert Boucher, who’s in the pocket approach gave the band its driving rhythms. In April of 2013, guitarist Sin Wildman joined the band. Tonight you’ll have an opportunity to meet this powerful band and listen to a few cuts from their recordings.
