About The Band

Fall2016

Tearing out of Buffalo NY, rock/groove powerhouse Aqueous has built a name for themselves nationally, following years of touring and high profile sets at festivals like Summer Camp, Peach Festival, Moe.Down, Catskill Chill, The Frendly Gathering, and countless others. Aqueous has built a reputation for bringing high energy and tireless effort to their craft, and fans rave about the uniqueness and power behind every performance. Featured as one of Relix Magazine's "On The Verge" artists and having shared the stage with the likes of Umphrey's McGee, Lotus, Papadosio & more, there seems no limit to the quartet's journey to the top.

With three studio albums under their belts, and their critically acclaimed live collection "Live Nugs", Aqueous is as strong in composing as they are at communicating and improvising during their shows. Their onstage persona is infectious and undeniable; their lifelong friendship stands as a testament to the tightness of the music. While the band is relatively young, they are polished - check them out as soon as you can, and discover firsthand what the buzz is all about.

Bios

Mike Gantzer

Deep in the caverns of the West Indies alongside the Isle of Righteousness is where coal miners accidently stumbled upon a new mineral that has captivated headlines worldwide. While in search for salty potash, the miners came across a space cluttered with khakis and walls of a purple tint. Beside squashed eight-legged deep cavern creatures they found a substance hunched over a bright light. Soon after they discovered "Mike" (the best name they came up with at the time), they found that he is rich in minerals that dictate rhythmic and melodic extraction while improvising lines that even Beethoven forgot about! It is believed that Mike is a mineral that has never been discovered before. When Mike Gantzer is fused with the precise sine waves created by Dave, and Evan there is an alignment of the homo sapien ear canal that makes humans sell their soul to the groove.

Dave Loss

A "Dave Loss" is a one-of-a-kind complex organism most commonly tracked in the North East region of North America. Rare for complex organisms, Dave was created through spontanueous genreration. The modern day version of Dave Loss, or "Project I7-A942" comes with 6 strings that ring in perfect harmony upon struming. In addition to the 6 strings, researchers have discovered a bionic vocal range that can hit pitches even the kanine cannot register. Though Dave is rare, chemistry professor Dr. Unkridge at Princeton University claims "it won't be uncommon to see new forms of Project I7-A942 sprouting up within the next 5 years."

Evan McPhaden

A gooey struggle, a crack, and a battle screech are three precise concepts to understand the initial moments of Evan McPhaden's life here on Terra Firma. Evan hatched from an egg early due to an overzealous amount of 60Hz rumble. A shimmey-shake and a runaway, he spread his wings and took off far away to meet the others on the mast of a fisherman's boat at sea. In the crow's nest is where he found his passion for plucking away at his 5 thick strings that can loosen the jaw of any Loch Ness monster. Within the past decade Evan has grown into something really special. A feather from Evan is worth unspeakable amounts in the Chinese black market.

Rob Houk

Once his mysterious past has been more accurately researched, scientific papers and other academic journals will be chomping at the bit to get a first look at this elusive creature. Until then we'll just have to read a top ten listicle about why certain individuals are better at keeping a beat going with their limbs. All we know is that Rob in search of the true reason why metal crashing on metal or other manufactured synthetic circular forms sounds good to the human ear.
