From Acoustic Voodoo Project to NEW CLEAR WEAPON, cause we are ditching the acoustics and going electric. We play Funk, Blues, Jazz, Hip hop and Folk. Our influences would have to be Hendrix, Stevie Ray, Sublime and Slightly Stoopid….etc etc.. We have revamped our music and are turning up the volume!

Matt Pryor (Lawrence, KS)
https://www.facebook.com/mattpryorsongs/

Prolific Lawrence, Kansas-based singer, songwriter, and guitarist Matt Pryor began his music career in 1994 with the ska-punk outfit Secret Decoder Ring, but it would only be a year later that he would form the band that would come to define him, the Get Up Kids. One of the premier second wave emo rock outfits out the mid-’90s/early 2000s, the group released five acclaimed studio albums before going on hiatus in 2012. During his time with the Get Up Kids, Pryor began issuing solo material under the moniker the New Amsterdams. He has released a pair of children’s albums under the name the Terrible Twos, and numerous solo recordings under his own name, including Confidence Man (2008), May Day (2012), and Wrist Slitter(2013). Nine Forty Live, an intimate live concert recorded at the Lawrence Arts Center in Lawrence, Kansas, arrived the following year.

Dan Andriano (St. Augustine, FL)
http://www.danandrianointheemergencyroom.com/

Dan Andriano is a unique voice in American punk rock. Having joined Alkaline Trio in 1997, he’s been the distinctive foil to Matt Skiba with his dry, personal and darkly humorous lyrics for almost two decades. He’s co-written, and sung on, some of their most memorable songs from Blue Carolina to My Standard Break From Life, as well as contributing bass to all their records in that time. In 2011, Dan released his first solo album under the name Dan Andriano In The Emergency Room. This mostly-acoustic record saw high acclaim and the spreading of wings; Dan’s infectious melodies and intense, intimate stories are even rawer when stripped back. After joining contemporaries and peers Chuck Ragan, Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!, Cory Branan and Nathaniel Rateliff on the Revival Tour in 2012, Dan Andriano returned in 2015 with second …In The Emergency Room album Party Adjacent. His solo exploits continue with a live electric band and a continued soul search as he uses the increased space to express himself.
