We are experienced players having fun playing original songs along with some classic rock and blues.

Although some members of The Mechanix have played together back in the 60’s and 70’s, this band started in the early 80's and played for a number of years in Central New York. In ’88, the band ended when job transfers and promotions moved players away from the Utica area.

A few years ago, the band started back up, getting together for the fun of playing music. We're now spread out across upstate New York, from Buffalo to Albany.

Influences? This is a band where most of the members were teenagers when The Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, and they remember when Brian Jones was in the Rolling Stones.

THE MECHANIX influence runs from the early rockers like Chuck Berry to classic rock legends from The Beatles and The Band to The Rolling Stones and ZZ Top. Guitarist John DePoalo writes tunes that reflect the best of the classic rock sound. Years ago, keyboard man Wayne Kolanko played in the Utica area band "Nightwatch"

Classic Rock? Play it...Hell, we LIVED IT!!!!!!!!
