Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Drawing from their vast array of musical influences including rock, blues, jazz, and just about everything else that's out their, A.R.E. has found a style as unique as themselves. With catchy hooks and funk laden jams, the members of A.R.E. pride themselves in winning the crowd over with good music, and, most importantly, a good time.
The members of A.R.E. include Andrew Bittaker, a hyper-active kid at heart who never fears going the extra mile for the the crowd. Andrew's little brother Allen closely rivals Andrew's on stage energy and is always willing to jump right into whatever crazy thing they come up with next. Brian Hower and his calm collected attitude probably stop those watching from thinking the band is just a group of crazy kids. Elliot brings up the rear in a sense as he rocks out at the back of the stage behind his drums, always looking for a good laugh.
This combination of great music and an exciting live performance has allowed the band to draw well in almost any environment. From playing shows with metal bands such as 7th Plague and APG to sharing the stage with neo rockers Cherry Monroe and even reggae legend Carlos Jones, A.R.E.'s message has remained the same: Get ready for a good time.
