the Momentum


Rhythm Guitar, Piano, Lead Guitar, Keyboard, Bass Guitar, Background Singer, Acoustic Guitar, Vocalist, Saxophone.


the Momentum is the tentative name for the new incarnation of fairplay-- check us out at ./fairplay for our old, old, old demos, or at .purevolume/grayside for newer demos, although those are just digital direct-in guitars and programmed drums.

We are a guitarist and drummer who have been playing together and writing music for 6 years-- we just moved to the SJ area from Charlotte, NC for the Cali music scene, and we're looking to find a bassist and a guitarist, preferably one or both of whom can play keyboard / piano as well.

We're used to being the main vocalists for shows, but we're not opposed to finding another primary vocalist, we're both excellent harmonizers.

Our influences range from jazz to punk to blues to metal-- the demos available online aren't incredibly indicative of what sound we're going for this time around, but it gives you a good idea of where we're coming from.

We can be contacted directly at bandthemomentum, or at 704-497-1773, call or text anytime, I may not answer-- leave a message.
