Biography

Sons of the Gun is a culmination of several other bands from the general Detroit area. Founding member, vocalist and guitarist Greg Mackiewicz, is best known for his work with his former Ann Arbor based band Aurora. Drummer Cliff Carinci has recently worked with Reptilian and Alternative Tentacles label artists Thrall. Pat O'Harris rounds out the group on bass and backing vocals.

Sounding like a cross between the Who, Strokes, Shins, & Replacements, this band is melodic and powerful at the same time. Sons of the Gun are creating one of the exciting new sounds of Detroit. Their music consists of finely crafted pop songs that bring rock-n-roll to a new and fresh level. Influences range anywhere from the Stones to XTC, but they are truly a melting pot of rock-n-roll with a distinct Detroit soul. The catchy songs and sincere lyrics will leave listeners wanting more. Sons of the Gun recorded with Detroit’s infamous Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Dirtbombs, etc.) at Ghetto Recorders in Detroit, Dave Niles in Ypsilanti, and currently with Andy Patalan (Sponge) at the Loft in Saline, MI.
This is a must see band.
