The Spyders of HBG


Bass Guitar.


"The Spyders of HBG" are a rock and roll trio, formed in Harrisburg Pennsylvania by Zach Entenman (Guitar and vocals), Dan Ertel (Bass and vocals), & Benjamin Danner (Drums).


The band made its debut performance December of 2010. Their popularity led to returning performances culminating in a live performance to 200+ people at the “New Years Bash” hosted by the Middletown Area Arts Collective and featured in Middletown PA’s “Press and Journal.”


On December 19 2010, they recorded their first full length album "Insert Title Here" and sold 300 copies in the first month of release. Touring was ground to a halt as Zach entered the Active Duty Military.

Though progress was slowed they continued to work and in 2013 the group released a new EP called "Either Way." Their new musical effort won them artist of the week on the Bacon and Music Blog. On his review of the work Music Journalist David Gillet remarked, "It doesn't have the driving force that pushes you through most songs nowadays, but a classic getting together with your buddies in the garage feel; and I dig that...ALOT!"

IIn 2019 the band announced their comeback with 2 song single "Missing" and later that year released "A Christmas Tryst" for the 2019 Holiday Season. 2020 saw big movement with the release of 5 song EP “Just Gettin' By” and a music Video for "A'int Losing No Sleep". Touring and Live in Person performances throughtout 2020 became to hazardous during the Worldwide Pandemic of 2020.

In April of 2021 with the Novel Corona Virus fading in the background, the band decided to tour the country providing a virtual road trip/concert experience at some of the American Wests great locations dubbed "The Smore's Tour". Upon return they found the Music Video for 'Ain't Losing No Sleep" won entry into the East NorthEast Film and Music Festival (EXNE) for October 2021.
