Biography

Crash Romeo is made up of five friends, Travis Weber (vocals), Ryan Weber (drums), Steve Anderson (guitar), Lil’ Steve Matthews (bass, vocals) and Adam Nordmeyer (synths, keyboard). These guys have been playing music for over eight years, and they are all self taught musicians under the age of twenty-five! Crash Romeo has the hooks, melodies, and classic song writing of power pop, meshed with younger punk aggression. They coexist nicely in both the rock scene and among more punk-influenced bands, nestled between influences such as Social Distortion and Face to Face.

A unique fixture within Crash Romeo’s sound is the prominent synth parts in many of their songs. Says Travis: “We felt that adding synths and keyboards to our band would give a whole new and unusual element, and that giving us a lot of synth-driven melodies would make us more distinctive.”

Crash Romeo’s youthful exuberance is highlighted by the emphasis on fun in both their live show and offstage behavior. An example of this is at Bamboozle, when the band created an impromptu dance party in the back parking lot on the top of their van. This was no normal dance party: Adam was wearing a thong and Lil’ Steve was wearing purple spandex. Not to mention that their van was sandwiched between A Static Lullaby’s and Alkaline Trio’s. The fun is translated into their lyrics, which cover a range of topics, from relationships to touring to life in New Jersey.

The band’s performances attract a wide audience, ranging from kids age 13 to kids in college. The fans have been extremely supportive, sending tons of mail, generating lots of buzz on Myspace, and even making their own T-shirts for shows. They are ready to explode into the national touring circuit!
