Bio

After a solid year of playing out and selling out the first printing of their debut CD GHOSTMONSTER! is gearing up for their 2nd full length release "Kiss and Sell"

GHOSTMONSTER

The primary force behind GhostMonster is the band's fear of death at the hands of their manager Boba Fett who constantly gets drunk at their shows and curses at them in a language they can’t understand except for the words “larghflax zoit blemf parhg” which the band has taken to mean, “Play or you will feel the wrath of my blaster on your testicles!!!” This all-consuming rage Boba feels towards his musical stewards has inspired them to release their new album, “Hair-Raising Adventure,” which features song structures consisting of three chords, the truth and some bridges full of out-right lies which Fett thinks balances the album nicely. Hopefully this will soothe the cold void deep within the soul of Fett...

GHOST STORY

This indie-infused rock/pop power trio started life in much the same way a packet of cherry Kool-aid sits in your cabinet waiting for water and sugar. The just-add-band scenario started when Dayton producer Rob Fugate of Mind Ignition caught a solo performance of Mike Goetz singer/songwriter at Kentucky's Madison Theater in late 2004.
Rob invited Mike up to the Dayton studios to lay down some simple acoustic tracks and a collaboration was born: they spent the day recording some acoustic tracks and getting to know one another.

Along with the session, Mike offered some studio tracks from a previous band project (2002), long thought destined to be shelved. “It was material Rory [Sandhage] and I had begun tracking with bassist Nate Horney at Audio Oasis with producer Jeff Higgins”, Goetz recalls, “At the time Rory was living in LA, Nate in Boston. They were in town for a couple of weeks and I wanted them on this project. There was a sense of track what we can now and flesh it out later." But momentum for the project abruptly shifted as money ran out and Mike found himself without a car after a major traffic accident. “It was put on the back burner while I got my life back together; Rob was the impetus for its resurrection”.

That next year, Rob and Mike assembled the project into a cohesive structure, tracking vocals and guitar and cleaning up the mix. Soon an album began to take shape which was dubbed Hair-Raising Adventure, a title taken from the first track of the album, and with that Mike started looking for a backing band to promote it.

It wasn’t long after final mixes were established when Rory arrived back in Cincinnati to set up permanent residence. Mike and Rory were geared up to promote the album along with long time friend and fellow musician Jeremy Singer.

Soon thereafter Singer left for his own project and the band found a perfect fit with local bassist Ron Gerlach.

Response to the band's live performances has been overwhelmingly positive. GhostMonster's immediate goals are to play out as much as possible, continue to grow their fan base in Cincinnati and the tri-state area, and promote their first release.
