- Missouri’s newest rock band “33″ is slated to be signed by TMG (Music Group) a National Indie Record Label in Fall of 2017. Take an award winning songwriter, former POW and Hollywood recording artist who tested positive for steroids… Bobby “Quiq” Quigley, accomplished lead guitarist and talented songwriter… Gregg Wenk, hard hitting premier rock drummer … Troy Gochenour …and talented 5/6 string Power Bassist Geno Alberico and what do you have? America’s newest rock sensation…33! The band draws from a wide variety of influences with a powerful guitar driven sound! Their mission is simple…change the current face of BORING Music from the same old Ghetto Rap, Progressive Metal, Alternative College rock bands to a fresh new guitar driven repetoire of original songs combined with melodic vocals that hook the listener!
- 33 is a MUSIC VIRUS…ONCE IN YOUR HEAD, YOU CAN’T GET IT OUT!
- Ninety per cent (90%) of 33‘s music is DANCEABLE!!!! Many music critics in the local Mid-Mo music scene, who have many years in the music business feel this project has great potential to make it as a National Act.
Getting away from the “mindless lyrics” and same old “cover band, progressive metal, eclectic-alternative and Hip-Hop rock ‘n roll club band music”, 33 offers a fresh variety of those same type of guitar driven songs, but with melodic and intelligent lyrics, music, and vocal harmonies…plus a HIGH ENERGY LIVE SHOW! Former member of an “all girls band,” Quig, a Columbia, Missouri native & founder of successful LA/Hollywood bands BOREALIS & PLAYGROUND X, joined forces with Geno Alberico & Greg Wenk of the powerhouse Kansas City band VERITAS in 2017. After an exhaustive Midwestern search of over 100 drummers, 33 added premier Kansas City drummer Troy Gochenour in May of 2017. The mainstay of their repetoire are the “hooks” they employ in their songs. Once heard, you cannot get them out of your head...and it’s the driving force behind this talented group of musicians.
The band is currently slated to sign with National Indie Record Company TMG RECORDS. “ Bobby Quigley, Gregg Wenk, Troy Gochenour, and Geno Alberico are 4 insanely talented musicians on a mission“ says this former West Coast Concert Promoter, and MTV producer SHELDON SAFRAN states that… “The minute I heard their demos I knew they were a very talented special group of musicians and very different from the music we are hearing on the radio today.”
Don Grierson,( former VP of A&R at Capitol/EMI Records in Hollywood) states “this band sounds like NO OTHER in the current market. They have a distinct original and fresh sound.” The Band is currently working on their debut CD at CENTRO CELLAR STUDIOS in Columbia with Wil Reeves and with award winning producer Doug Storm at SAWHORSE STUDIOS in St. Louis with owner and engineer Jason McEntire. This is a state-of-the-art recording studio, which Quig says, “rivals any major label studio in Hollywood, Nashville, LA, or New York.” The band is also scheduling a shoot for their first video in the coming weeks.
“Along with this groups’ many contacts within the industry, this is a band to keep tabs on,“ Sean Michaels, KDKB Radio, Phoenix, Arizona
Don Grierson ( former President of Capitol/EMI Records ) and current CEO of Drive Entertainment in Los Angeles says..“I have worked with Bobby in the past with BOREALIS, where he proved himself a national song writing talent. Together with this new group of talented musicians, will certainly land them a deal with a Major label. 33 delivers great diversity in their repetoire, an original sound, and can back it up with raw power driven guitar and melodic vocals live…and one helluva high energy live show!”
“Few Bands in the annuls of rock history has a brought the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s influences together and molded them into a modern sound,” says Sheldon Safran, Las Vegas Promoter.
“This is a band to keep tabs on,” states KDKB DJ/VJ Sean Michaels 2016
