Feeling a bit camera shy


The current incarnation of Sleeping Giant was formed in the winter of 2004 when lead singer and primary songwriter Jacob Fraser (a.k.a. J. Frae) recruited drummer Dylan Hoyt (a.k.a. 3D) and bass player Aaron Williams (a.k.a. Dubble A to tha Ron) to play a series of gigs he had lined up at a venue that many would call iconic on the Rochester music scene, the Penny Arcade. Soon thereafter, Mike Pittinaro (a.k.a. Pitty Piper) and Steve Dushenko (a.k.a. Oh) joined the fold on percussion and lead guitar, respectively, to round out the crew. Since then, the band has played in front of crowds throughout the Northeast, and a steady stream of new fans are added daily to a loyal and supportive base.
The SG sound is inspired and influenced by a wide variety of music, including Sublime, 311, Rage Against the Machine, Pavement, Bob Marley, The Police, The Beatles, U2, John Browns Body, Sonic Youth, The Grateful Dead, Led Zepplin, CCR, and many others. Something you have to hear, or, rather, bear witness to, in order to believe.
