"A Great Local Gem"

I don't always write about local bands, but when I do, I prefer to write about the ones who truly blow me away. It isn't often that you hear a band that is doing something so unique that you can't quite articulate how to describe it because the point of reference is so disguised or, destroyed altogether. He-Chaw Frunk is a band from Lakewood, OH that I first became acquainted with last year at a shitty little bar on the East Side of Cleveland, OH that my friends in Lucy were playing at. I don't remember that venue's name, who else played (other than Lucy), or how much I had to drink that night, but I do remember not moving an inch as He-Chaw belted out thirty minutes of no nonsense rock. Rock, that word that so many don't use anymore that almost carries no weight, at least not the same weight it once did in the glory days of yesteryear. I know I heard blues, I think I heard some country, I'm pretty sure I heard some metal, and I'm certain I heard lyrics about killing an ex-girlfriend. Whatever I heard, I had never heard it before and it was more than a pleasant surprise. This music is played with talent, conviction, integrity, and more creativity than any band in Cleveland. That is a quote, and one you can take to the fucking bank. He-Chaw Frunk have just finished recording a new album at Obese Studios produced by my friend, co-conspirator for this shitty blog, and current drummer Matt Novak that is beyond impressive and hauntingly profound. I not only suggest everyone in the local area to pick this up and see this band live, I am outright demanding it. Classic Rock n' Roll something or other from the ugliest part of the country, figure it out for yourself.

"Lakewood-based He-Chaw Frunk to play Conservation Rocks! show this weekend"

They’re a little bit conservation-minded. And they’re a little bit rock and roll.

He-Chaw Frunk (if you can figure out what that name means, be sure to let the band members know) is an energetic rock and roll force. Hailing from Lakewood and the west side of Cleveland, the band will be playing this weekend’s third annual Conservation Rocks! show at Beachland Ballroom, 15711 Waterloo Road in Cleveland.

The band is comprised of singer Chris Bishop, guitarist Sasha Kostadinov, bassist Matt Rusincovitch and drummer Mark Slater, who works for the National Park Service and is involved with preservation of historic structures and landscapes throughout the park system.

And there’s the hook. Conservation Rocks! brings together bands who have some connection to wildlife preservation in the area. The show is put on by the Western Reserve Land Conservancy in an effort to promote awareness and raise funding for their work. At this point, the Land Conservancy has preserved more than 420 properties and more than 29,000 acres.

The members of He-Chaw Frunk possess inclinations toward recycling, sustainability and, of course, rocking out onstage.

They’ve been together for the past few years, playing gigs throughout Lakewood and the Greater Cleveland area to growing audiences. Whether dishing up an Allman Brothers cover or working out one of their original tunes, they’ve always made sure that the crowds are having a good time.

Their sound is big and loud, falling in line with the resurgence of blues-laden rock bands like The Black Keys and Alabama Shakes. With Bishop’s hillbilly-meets-Tom Waits voice, it’s a winning mix that comes packed with attitude.

Tickets, which are $10 in advance and $13 at the door, can be purchased through beachlandballroom.com or by calling the Land Conservancy at (440) 729-9621. The show is for all ages. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.

On the lineup, He-Chaw Frunk will be joined by Steve Madewall, The Swamp Rattlers and Pete McDonald and the Black Oats. - cleveland.com
