Ryan MacLean, guitarist and singer for the band Sideproject, says win or lose, "we just want to play the greatest show and leave a huge impact on the audience."

MacLean says that he and fellow band members hope their "heavy blues rock reminiscent of the '60s and '70s, with a modern touch," keeps the crowd entertained.

"We feel very lucky to have this chance to perform," says the 16-year-old Katonah resident. "It's an awesome way to get everybody away from their computers and experience some good old live music."

Bio

Sideproject is a hard funk/blues rock power trio out of South Salem, New York. The band was originally 6 piece rock group formed by drummer Alex Cano and ex guitarist Bobby Renzulli in January of 2005. Over the course of the following 6 months, Sideproject went through a number of lineup changes before finally setting in with their current and final lineup in July of 2005. Sideproject is: Ryan Maclean on lead vocals/guitar, Alex Cano on drums/backup vocals, and Tim Luckow on bass/backup vocals.
As a trio, the band decided to throw away all of their old material. In the new songs they began to write, the remaining three members formed a sound of their own. Sideproject’s music is gutsy and heavy, but at the same time very groovy. They really pour their hearts out into each song they write. Their sound is a unique fusion of hard rock, funk, and blues, all with a very vintage rock feel. Sideproject’s biggest influences include Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Cream, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Perhaps the one thing that stands out the most about Sideproject is their live performance and ability to play together on stage. Sideproject puts on an incredible live show. Since the formation of their current lineup the band has played over 30 shows, helping them to develop a great deal of performance experience. Sideproject makes each show different, always throwing surprises into their set list and adding lots of live improvisation to their songs. No matter when or where you see them, you can expect any Sideproject show to be a rockin’ experience and a great time.

Sideproject is currently in the process of working on their first album. The record is likely to be called "Certified Organic", a title which represents the raw, vintage sound of the band. The goal for the record is to produce a classic debut album that truly captures a rocking feel while at the same time maintaining a relatively minimal use of studio effects in order to capture the true Sideproject sound, a sound which has proved to carry itself on its own. The band hopes to release the album sometime by next summer.
