The Suburban Sound hails from good old Lancaster. Straight rock, solid drumming, dirty blues rock riffs and a legit horn section make this band a must hear for any fan of music, local or otherwise. They kicked their set off with high energy and solid talent, and didn't let up until the very end. As audience response goes, there was a gentleman with a backwards Boston hat on yelling "more cowbell." There were also about 50 people screaming and clapping at the end of each song, which is a solid showing for the Lizard Lounge.

Bio

The only rock act to emerge from Central Pennsylvania that performs a new breed of no-nonsense rock is The Suburban Sound. Formed 10 years ago in high school, The Suburban Sound is a solid six-piece rock band, having refined their public performances through a decade of perpetual practice in a number of basements and barns. The band is comprised of a propulsive rhythm section, led by Pete Styer’s fluid drums, Kyle Rehnberg’s thunder on bass, and Derek D-Bozz Diller on rhythm guitar and lead vocals. While Scott Rehnberg assists with vocals, he leads guitar with stinging blues solos. Matt Misel and Andy Styer fill out the band with trumpet and tenor sax, respectively.

In addition, the band honed their convergent music style for several years in a Lancaster downtown apartment, at times resembling more a frat flop house than a home. A white interior apartment room was soundproofed into a band practice/recording studio. Living and practicing together during this intense time of fertilization generated a gregarious ethic which separates The Suburban Sound from most bands.

The Suburban Sound has developed distinctive songs from many rock influences, including such stalwarts as Led Zeppelin, Queen, Guns N Roses, The Who, Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Fugazi, The Beatles, embodied by a mid-60s Bob Dylan attitude. Having played festivals, clubs, bars, and street fairs, The Suburban Sound is an appropriately adept band for any rock venue or occasion.

The band’s music style ranges from gang rock to contemplative slow rollers that build to a crescendo. Scott often accompanies Derek on agile vocals, while the band backs up the ebb and flow of the songs with an expertise not often encountered. Though the horns may seem to set the band apart, what is most remarkable is how the rhythm and lead sections seamlessly create tempo and melody without being intrusive. Several song performances are devastating in their intricate power, the audience remembering long after the live performance both the intelligent lyrics and rippling wall of sound. Teamwork is working signature of The Suburban Sound.

Finally, it is noteworthy that The Suburban Sound is constantly held together and regenerated by their faith in God. The band’s conscience and formidable spiritual unity invigorates all that the songs they perform. To listen to The Suburban Sound is to humanly hear the power and glory in rock and roll.
