"Minos Conway"

"Minos Conway is the quintessential beach jam band, complete with lengthy, dreamy guitar riffs, a pseudo-psychedelic sound and down-to-earth yet introspective lyrics. And oh yeah, the foursome, formed four years ago in Lewes, Delaware, absolutely loves their instruments. They love ‘em so much they’ll sometimes play minutes into a track before you hear either of their vocalists utter a peep. Their latest work, a self-titled, nine-song album, was released in January of this year."

"Another competitor in this year's Summer Series, the boys from Lewes also bring a sort of mystical, hypnotic sound, perfect while the sun is setting." - Spark Magazine


"This Song Rocks"

(about Eyes Forward). Holy jam band, Batman! Minos Conway shows up at muzic over the weekend and I start with the seeing trails and eating trail mix. Tough genre to do well and these guys sound fresh, exciting, and sincere, with a truly positive message. - Muizic.com


"Young band with old soul to energize Rehoboth"

Minos Conway could be called a young band with an old soul. The band has been together four years, but its polished sound rivals that of veteran groups.
The group has a full-length, self-titled CD with nine songs and continues to perform at area venues, including those in Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. Hear Minos Conway live, as the band returns to Arena’s in Rehoboth Beach on Saturday, Dec. 15.

A quartet that includes James Darley (bass), Nate McCormick (guitar, vocals), Alex Shcwallenberg (keyboards) and Joel Clark (drums), the band is a self-described “young but seasoned group of musicians [that] writes and plays music with groove and intensity to create a unique style that is all their own.”
Influences such as Phish, Pink Floyd and The Grateful Dead are obvious, while tinged with a unique and energetic twist to make the music unique. Much of the band’s lyrics, including “What Happened,” deal with social issues: “I can’t believe in everything I’m seeing from the other side and I try to understand. But I just can’t see how war is justified the legends that we’ve made ourselves the lessons that we gave ourselves can all step aside then we can all just go run and hide.”

In addition to performing Dec. 15, the band will play New Year’s Eve at Arena’s with The Permilla Project. For more information about these shows, call Arena’s at 227-1272.

Bio

In the four years that Minos Conway have been together, many changes have come along helping to shape what is now a truly unique and intense style that is all their own. The band consists of four members. James Darley on bass and vocals, Nate McCormick on guitar and vocals, Alex Shcwallenberg on keyboards and vocals, and Joel Clark on the drums. The band’s first full length cd is now available. The album is self-titled and consists of nine songs.

“We are very proud of the work we did in the studio. It was definitely a learning experience and it forced us to become tighter as a unit. It’s cool that Drake (a friend and fellow band member) did all of the artwork so we can say this is truly our work.” -James.

The band is currently writing new material, so look for more music soon. Some of the places the band has played include The 8×10, Dogfish Head Tavern, Arena’s, Ram’s Head Tavern, East End Cafe, Pale Dog Tavern, Hight Tide Jam Fest ‘06, Dewey Beach Music Conference ‘06, Stonestock ‘06, The Hippy Handfasting Ceremony, and our personal favorite Friendship Fest which is run by their friend Scott Wiggins. Minos has headlined each year and it has grown immensely. The last one pulled in over four hundred people to the little town of Longneck, DE. 2007 will be the fest’s first all weekend festival.

Over all, Minos Conway loves playing music together. They play with a strong energy and feed off the crowd as much as possible. Soothing and at times very intense, Minos Conway is sure to bring a fresh sound to the your ear.
