Night of Rock 'n Roll at Relix with SUPERBOB

On July 7, 2011, SUPERBOB will be making a first appearance in Knoxville. Sponsored by WNFZ 94.3 the X, this night of rock 'n roll will feature hometown heroes Luminoth and ARC.

SuperBob is a four-piece high energy rock band based in the Washington DC area. Childhood friends Adam Smith (guitar) and Matt Santoro (vocals) formed the band, under the name "bob" in '05 with the vision of bringing something fresh to a rock scene that seemed to have forgotten what rock n roll was really about. Soon after, they added Drew Recny (bass) and Chris Faircloth (drums). This band breathes rebellious authenticity back into music and reminds you that rock music is supposed to make you get up and not give a damn about being you.

When you see SuperBob live your senses will be overwhelmed by a borderline excess of stage presence and heart pounding sound.  Guitarist Adam Smith brings a package of uniqueness, flare, and pure adrenaline that is rarely found in any one musician, while classically trained Drew Recny packs a clean, punchy bass style that is loaded with obvious talent and a technique that only comes with full dedication and commitment to his craft.  Christopher Faircloth brings an almost indescribable style to the table, one with high flying stick tricks, and hard pounding, ear deafening, strong beats. 

The proverbial icing on the SuperBob cake is provided by Matt Santoro's vocals which can only be described as unabashedly his own.  Full of ear catching melodies, unapologetic and blatantly honest lyrics, and a flow that is uncommon yet undeniably at home in rock, Santoro's songwriting couples with an unrivaled stage presence that caps off one of the best live bands you will ever get the chance to experience.

SuperBob's buzz was established with their eye catching live shows, non-stop hustle, and no excuses work ethic. Tattoos, colored hair, dread locks, and plenty of good old fashioned rock n roll grit distinguishes them from the undedicated and identifies them as the real deal in an industry riddled with fakers.

After three years of hard work at gaining recognition, winning the loyalty of fans in their local scene and growing a fan-base across the Mid-Atlantic, SuperBob hooked up with Grammy nominated producer Garth "GGGarth" Richardson. They went to Vancouver BC to record their first full length record entitled "bbbob" and then hit the road for the next three years playing an average of 130 shows annually over a span of 19 states.

Having just released their second full length record (Rock N Roll) in the spring of 2010, SuperBob stands prepared to release a third full length in the summer of 2011. Produced by Matt LaPlant at the Bieler Brothers studios in Pompano Beach FL, the new SuperBob album promises to blow minds and take the rock game to whole new dimensions.

This band grows in exponential steps and has a collection of recorded songs that they can proudly boast is only surpassed by the full-effect of attending a live show.  Keep your eyes and ears open for this uniquely amazing band.

The show starts at 8 pm, at the Relix Variety Theatre, 1208 N. Central St., Knoxville. Admission is $5 in advance and at the door.
