"March 2007"

This alterna-rock three-piece group brings to mind Silversun Pickups and something a bit grungier. Their catchy brand of pop rock is captured best on tunes like “The Kicks.” —The Indy - The Indy

"September 2008"

"these guys know how to pen and play a catchy tune" - The Indy - The Indy

"September 2007"

"four catchy and melodic pop-rock tracks that fit snugly into the indie niche that has made groups like the Shins semi-household names" - The Indy - The Indy


Self-released, self-titled demo: Hoover Dan



Hoover Dans earliest beginnings could be set in an toyota truck parked in the alley behind the singers house.
Baby asleep, mommy resting, lights out, the only place left for Zack was the cramped cab of his old truck. This is where the melodies for the first few songs formed and it wasn't until he met up with Chris Agh and Brad Altavilla that the melodies finally began to take root. Faced with often dissimilar musical tastes the band found the process of writing challenging but the final songs making the whole thing worthwhile. Building a small but strong fan base in the party circuit the band emerged from the small practice space in Spring 2007 with a solid set of unique songs. The band began playing the local coffee shops and dive bars with the "play anywhere" attitude accepting shows alongside country, electronic and reggae acts. In mid 2008 looking for some new inspiration the band added Dione Carberry on bass and moved Brad to guitar and left Chris as is. The band draws influences from artists such as Modest Mouse, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Silversun Pickups, Foo Fighters, Wilco, The White Stripes, Cat Power, Bjork and many many more
