A Show of Hands

 Ocala, Florida, USA

In a primarily hardcore/punk scene, A Show of Hands has broken through the mold with their fun style and catchy pop-punk music. Each member brings something fresh to the table by combining their broad musical influences with an individual personality, on and off the stage.


A five piece Pop-Punk band from central Florida with Michael Parkin - lead vocals, Andy Karpovck - rhythm guitar, vocals, Danny Brandt - lead guitar, vocals, Alex Aslani - drums, and Josh Insco - bass guitar. Ideas and talents that came together and molded into a fresh energetic sound with vocals and lyrical writing that comes alive when backed by hard driving guitars and a back beat that draws you into their every song. Brought together by friends the group formed and the band worked to piece together their unique sound. Driven by a passion to express their love of music and lyrical stories of life. Inspired by old school greats and modern changes in genres they crafted their sound. Their high energy stage performances and Michael’s hooky lyrical writings compel you to join the band in their performances. In 2009 A Show of Hands made their debut in Orlando’s Next Big Thing battle of the bands Orlando, Florida and became finalist, competing over several months then emerging as final winners of Orlando’s many bands.

A Show of Hands is hard at work with graphic designs, music video, photo shoots, and interviews while still writing and composing their next performance. They take this all in stride striving to perfect their presence in the music world.
