Shayds of Gray


Cover band with both male and female lead singers based in Williamstown, NJ. We play a large variety of music including classic rock, hard rock, some 80's rock and some lighter metal, along with some southern rock/americana. Our goal is to not play all the songs that every other cover band plays, but to play the great songs that everyone knows but forgot they knew. Songs that will make people say 'holy $H!T!!! I forgot about that song!!!!!'

We practice once a week and gig 1-2 times a month. Everyone has many years of experience and have been in several successful local bands over the last few decades. We are either retired or independently wealthy and do this for the love of music and performing. No drama, no egos, just plain, ole rockin' fun!
