Poseidon's music is heavily based on their infectious melodies, bouncy riffs, and delicious harmonies. However, they can turn up the rock with angsty, wailing solos and pounding drums, ready to rock your socks off. Chunky guitars and poppy vocals are a staple in their Weezer-meets-Zeppelin style.

Biography

From the basements of Illinois comes Poseidon! Poseidon was formed in the winter of 2008 after school friends Ryan Lammers and Bryce Sova decided to put together a band. With the addition of Preston Parker and Dean Sinclair, the four combined their musical tastes, ranging from alternative and indie to metal and classic rock, to create a unique brand of geeky pop rock. Leaving their early "kid band" days behind, Poseidon has found their niche and evolved into a powerful musical force. Poseidon has plenty of experience putting on exciting stage shows, playing at locations and events such as the Kenosha County Fair in Kenosha, WI, McHenry Fiesta Days in McHenry, IL, and Penny Road Pub in Barrington, IL. They've won several talent competitions, including an online Battle of the Bands in coordination with the Art Institute of Schaumburg, which let them record a demo and music video in the school's high-tech environment. Their influences include Weezer, Rush, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Dream Theater, The Beatles, Vampire Weekend, Nintendo 64, comic books, and girls. So sit back in your comfy recliner chair, and take a listen to Poseidon; they hope you enjoy.
