BAND OF THE WEEK-Angel Down

Featuring a different local band every week so you can get to know more about the bands that make up this great music scene!

Introducing ANGEL DOWN...

Angel Down started in 2009 when ex-members of LiveWyre, Mike Kingcaid and Chris Navatier, decided they wanted to start a new band covering classic rock, hard rock, and metal songs that they loved.  Josh Fugate had worked on projects with Chris for many years prior and was a perfect fit on Bass.  Tony Fucci came in after playing in several original hard rock and metal bands for close to 15 years.  Angel Down started picking songs to cover based on personal preference rather than on what was considered popular.  We really wanted to stand out from the Top 40 cover band scene.  We mean no disrespect to any band that covers pop music, it just wasn’t what we wanted to do and felt that the bar scene was flooded with the same types of bands.  We really think of ourselves as an original band that plays covers.  We try to approach every song with the intent of making it more interesting or up to date.  Over the last several years, Angel Down has started carving out its own little place in the Lehigh Valley and beyond.  We have started expanding our friend base and look forward to seeing new faces.
