A finalist in the 2013 King of the Boards - Battle of the Bands in Wildwood, NJ, Slyphr is made up of 3 School of Rock Allstars accompanied by bassist Alec McCloskey. Slyphr features School of Rock AllStars Ian Roberts, Ric Haas, and Sal Tommassello with Ric on lead guitar, Ian on vocals, and Sal on drums. Sal also won the King of the Boards - Drum Shred Competition in 2013. From our 15 year old shredder on lead guitar to our 21 year old bassist laying down the foundation, we have plenty to offer to the rock community. With a multitude of high quality musical equipment and guidance from professional musicians, we have high hopes of moving beyond the local music scene.
