Crucial Volume plays loud rock.


Formed in 2008, Crucial Volume is a four piece rock band that combines 70's inspired balls-to-the-wall hard rock with funk, blues and grunge. The band's founder, chief songwriter and vocalist John Fidalgo brought together the other members (Fernando Carvelo Drums, Mike Pollex, Guitar, Paul Rodrigues Bass) from various musical projects to bring his rock n' roll vision to life.
In their first year Crucial Volume established themselves both as a live and studio act. The recording began quite soon after the band laid down the material for their first six original tracks and later resulted in their first studio record: Volume One. While recording this disc the band started developing a live repertoire that got big responses from fans and audiences alike. For Crucial Volume the fan base continues to grow and the venues are getting bigger from gigging at the former Rock n' Roll Heaven to the Rockpile and most recently the Mod Club. They are presently at work on their second disc titled: Everything is Crucial but You.
