Bio

The Electracons began as three friends, Jeff Pierce - bass, Bruce Williamson – guitar and George Stabile – drums, getting together on Friday nights to write, rehearse and jam. That was some twenty years ago. In 2002 they began to get serious about recording their songs and releasing a CD. That first effort resulted in “Hand Buzzer” which was recorded mostly live in a local studio. The songs primarily written by Jeff Pierce show off the band’s classic rock sound boiled down into three-minute stories of youth, love, sex, heroes (some super, some not) and the ironies of life in Western PA, not necessarily in that order. Several more years passed while they honed their ‘motoring hook heavy’ sound (Dave Richards - The Erie Times) before going back into the studio to record their latest dance friendly opus “Ants in Yer Pants”.

During the period between recordings the band has been invited to play at outdoor festivals and concert events in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. In 2005 and 2006 they played Mid-Summer Music Festival at Rock Falls Park near Slippery Rock, PA more recently they performed at the Youngstown Rock n Roll History Group’s 2009 Rock Fest in Canton Ohio and the Fire Fly Festival in Cambridge Springs, PA. They have played concerts at the Barrow-Civic Theatre in Franklin PA and with poet Chuck Joy at the Roadhouse Theater in Erie, PA. They even appeared live in a radio interview on COOL 101.7 in Meadville, PA.

Psyched with the buzz that was created by the release of “Ants in Yer Pants” in the fall of 2009 the band decided it was time to get serious about performing live. They invited long time friend and musician Rick Offutt who had recently moved back to western Pennsylvania to join the band. Now armed with a new vocalist and keyboards the band has begun to focus on performing cuts from their two CD’s and writing material for the next one. One by one songs take shape and the anticipation grows. This is fun music with characters and attitudes that you’ll likely recognize but never expected to hear immortalized in clever, melodic rock and roll driven songs.
