The best kept secret in music


Sunday, June 18, 2006

The Southwest Side's own Shyster will try to snag a record deal Friday night during the citywide Mobfest showcase for unsigned bands.

The lads — Scott Bulanda, Nate Trumble, Dan Ulbricht and Geno "O'Brien" Schield — joined up last year as Shyster. Their styles just clicked.

Manager Art Haynes says the guys have "been there and done that long enough to know that it's all just a good time."

"It's just good ol' rock 'n' roll, Shyster style," he continued.

They name a few influences — The Beatles, Velvet Revolver — but don't like setting limits or being labeled.

"You name it ... it's all mixed in there somewhere," Haynes said.

Shyster plays June 23 at Jay's Bar in Crestwood.

Five bucks gets you in for an all-ages evening that starts around 9 p.m. Shyster takes the stage at 9:45.

The gang of working family guys is psyched to make it by getting signed. If not, it's not like anything could stop them from playing their rock 'n' roll anyway.

"It's a lifestyle they love and can't live without," Haynes said.

Following the release of their single 'Revolution,' Shyster's self-titled EP debuted in the Winter of 2005. Shyster continues to write and record new music.

Streaming airplay can be heard at Live365 CMP Radio Network. Songs can be played and downloaded at

Prior to the esablishment of Shyster, the band released various singles and full length CDs under the names Temporary Buzz and PeaceFreak.
