Bio

The Action! is an innovative band from Syracuse, NY whose music combines many genres, such as ska, punk, jazz, and rock. The band formed in 1998 and quickly gained a devoted following throughout the region. Formerly known as Skatos, The Action! has released 3 full length albums, two EPs, and been included on a number of compilations including the internationally released Still Standing (Jump/Megalith) compilation. They have been the recipients of two Syracuse Area Music Awards; Best Band (2008) and Best Alternative Album, Exploding Radio (2009).

The Action! includes: Mike Gibson (lead vocals/guitar), Chris Nolan (trumpet/vocals), Craig Chamberlain (drums), Adam Carkey (bass), Brandon Hall (trumpet/vocals), Dan King (trombone), and Dave Piwinski (bass trombone). Each member brings extensive musical knowledge and ability to the band. Together, they produce a fantastic sound, a high energy level, and a contagious excitement during any performance.

After taking a well deserved break for a few years after college, the members of The Action! reformed in the summer of 2006 to host a benefit concert for their band-mate Brandon Hall, who had been diagnosed with leukemia. The concert was a huge success for both Brandon and the band and spawned a full blown reunion. Now, with Brandon back on his feet, The Action! works with a renewed focus and a creative drive that continually produces outstanding musical results.

The Action! has shared the stage with Gym Class Heroes, Reel Big Fish, The Toasters, The Pietasters, Jimmies Chicken Shack, The Planet Smashers, and The Sheila Devine, among countless other talents. On stage, the band delivers a tight, adrenaline-fueled performance that has remained unparalleled by their musical peers.
