Band of the Week 4/22/2013 – The Tens!


Congratulations to this week’s Band of the Week – The Tens! Tune in all week long to hear tracks from this week’s featured band.

The Tens

Punk Shockers, The Tens, just turned 21 and no one is safe. Featuring Easton Grainer on vocals and bass guitar, guitarist Scott Martinelli and drummer Bill Ciesliga, the band formed in 2011 just to record a demo. During that time, the guys wrote and recorded ten songs – before long the band began booking shows in the Detroit area and have been a constant presence in the local music scene ever since.

We’ve caught these guys around town a few times now, and their music is infectious and their live show is energetic and tight. Their combination of energy, comedy, and ability is going to get these guys noticed in one way or another. Don’t miss their amazing stage show at Woodruff’s in Ypsilanti on April 27th as they rock the house with Kedder Avant and Mitch Bradford.

You can obtain a copy of their ten-song demo on CD or cassette (they still have those!) on their blog. Congratulations guys!
