This Time Down


Lead Guitar.


We are a 4 piece Modern Alternative Rock band from the New Haven area in the mold of Breaking Benjamin, SoundGarden, Alice in Chains, STP and AC/DC. We are made up of members from the bands Lonesome George and Calm to Chaos and we're looking to make as much noise as we possibly can in this state as well as in the Northeast region. If you are a club owner, another band or individual/organization looking for a mostly all original rock band look no further. We will play almost anywhere and if you're paying us even better. We are currently looking to add a second guitarist to play mostly leads but also to add some color to the mix. We would need you to sing as well as be able to be able to write really catchy rock riffs and be able to perform your ass off in live situations. If this sounds like you then contact me, Mike G giammattei or 203-589-0243 I don't have a paying account so I can't get back atcha from here.
