Bio

"LOT 16 was born of passion, desparation, desire, inspiration and an overwhelming need to speak our minds. The road that brought us together is also the road that binds us, like brothers." - Rob Tebaldi

Along the road of life, there are many twists and turns. It was no different for the members of LOT 16. Lead Singer/guitarist Paul Bannon traveled far from his home in Northern Ireland to seek out his dreams in America. Bassist Rob Tebaldi had taken a long vacation from performing to work on his skills as a songwriter. Dan O'Connor (Piano/Keys/vocals) had spent years as a solo artist. Fabio Bargna (guitars/vocals) reached the point in his career where it just had to be fun again. After the departure of their original drummer, Jay Bolski, Bobby Chappel (drums) left his home and family in Knoxville Tennessee specifically to join LOT 16. What brought these five men together? Simple... The Music.

Personal tragedies, social upheval, and a call to war were enough motivation for Paul Bannon and Rob Tebaldi to begin a partnership as songwriters. They didn't set out to create a product, but rather write songs that affect people, inspire them to follow their own paths, and to never forget that true power comes from within. Not long after Fabio Bargna began presenting his unique voice in song. With an open door policy on creativity LOT 16 has been able to cultivate a sound that is as unique as it is familiar.

With the common vision of longevity and inspiration over stardom, LOT 16 brings to life personal songs that become instantly relatable, emerging as what Fabio calls "a hard rock band with good song sense." From the dynamic and melodic single "Superstar of NY "to the angst-ridden "Frustration" to the playful and energetic "Stupid Girl", the group consciously shunned the idea of creating a product, focusing instead on just making good music.

Says Fabio, "Music is art, it can't be marketed and sold like a car. I've had different favorites at different times in my life, but I've loved them because their music made me feel something, and that's what it's all about." Paul adds "It's about emotion. I feel music as opposed to listen to it so the more emotional you can make me feel, the more impressed and touched I am."

With diverse influences, LOT 16's sound remains fresh, though reminiscent of the great rock of the past. It is at once original and accessible, with the heartfelt angst of singer/songwriters and the raw edge of garage rockers. LOT 16 has recently released their debut CD, "Tuesday Came First" (available on iTunes, CD Baby.com, and www.lot16.com) and are quickly making their mark on the live music scene, their original brand of NYC melodic rock is finding a home among legions of fans on their upward spiral of success..........and this is only the beginning!
