Cynical is a blues based rock band with seasoned musicians with a focus of playing songs that haven't been done a million times or butchered by bands that don't take the time to dig in and play the music as close as possible to the original recording.


CYNICAL just materialized more so than it was actually an aspiration or goal. During the summer and fall of 2006, two guitar players that had played music in numerous bands before and around campfires with friends, began jamming again - just occasionally for the pure sake of satisfying a "JONES" that had been building in both of them for a while. It was easy and casual to jam together but it wasn’t the same as having a whole live band situation. Around late November ’06, Brian (bass guitar) and Randy (drums) came around and the chemistry was undeniable. “This has got potential” was stated during the first evening they all jammed together. We could read each other so well and it also helped that we all had a diverse musical appreciation. Harmonies just seemed to fall into place….most the time. We all knew it was just a short matter of time before we would be performing music that we all appreciated. Hopefully, before people who enjoy it as much as we do.
