"Stunlaw: band on the move"

Three years ago the Faith Family Church began opening its doors to local teens. For one group this has turned out to be the boost they needed.
Stunlaw, a local band made up of three teenage boys, has gained a good following from starting at the Faith Family Church says Tom patsiatzis, father of Demetrius, a member of the band.
Other are Ryan Forsyth and Dimitri Halkias.
The church, which Tom sais isn't really involved in the two nights that go on there - jam nights on Friday's, and synergy on Saturdays, opens up its doors for teens. The evenings are not religious in a nature.
Steve Samuels, one of the coordinators said the jam nights average about 100 people each night.
"This has opened some doors," Tom said. "It got the boys great exposure".
Although Stunlaw has moved up in the music scene, they still return to their home-stage at jam nights every now and again.

The band Stunlaw is composed of Ryan Forsyth (lead vocals, bass), Dimitri Halkias (drums) and Demetrius Patsiatzis (guitar and vocals).

Although a relatively young band, Stunlaw has been together and performing for over 7 years now since, the age of 11.

The band evolved when Ryan and Demetrius, who were minor hockey league teammates, hung out together playing guitar, while Dimitri and Demetrius grew up together playing a variety of instruments. The 3 eventually got together to perform music sets.

Stunlaw spent the first 2 years playing at high school talent shows, the eventually graduated to play “jam nights” at local venues. From jam nights, the band started to enter local “Band Battles” and contests, usually being successful in placing first prize.

In November 2004, Stunlaw sends a home-recorded demo to the “Hamilton Music Scene” organizers and gets accepted to play at club Absinthe, their first performance in a professional venue.

Over the years, Stunlaw has become a more recognized band, not only by fans, but are now getting offers to play in larger, proffesional venues around the Hamilton and Niagara area.

Despite their age, Stunlaw is a very professional band, who put on an actual performance when on stage. Their sets are 90% their own original music, which is mostly pop/punk. Their cover songs (depending on the audience) are a mix of Green Day, Blink 182 etc. They have enough original music to put on a 1-hour show.

These boys are talented and serious musicians, who also produce their own Stunlaw Merchandise (T-shirts, buttons, stickers, CDs etc.) for their fan base.

The boys plan to continuously improve and carry out their music careers over the next many years. “… This is all we have ever wanted to do even before we became a band… this band is not only a hobby to us now, but it is a part of our lives and careers…” - Stunalw
