Formed in 2012, The RoadTrash Band is Dan Blaise on guitar and vocals, Bernie Moss on lead guitar, Seth Howard on bass and vocals, and Chris Powers drums and vocals. The band originally set out to not only create original songs, but also take old school Country songs and interject them with their own rock-punk-rocking stylings. This cross-genre, if you will, is what the band interprets as “Cow-punk and Thunder-boogie,” which really shines through in their electric live performances. (Editor's note: If you have not witnessed one Bernie Moss on guitar I would make it a point of interest, if not a priority.)

“The band was formed upon a request by a friend of mine who hosts an annual party,” front-man Dan Blaise said in a previous, Standing Room Only interview. “I'd played the drums in various bands for 25 years and just decided I wanted to try something new. So, I became a front-man and hand-picked my band members, but these guys are more like family than band mates.”

The band’s influences are wide-ranging; from classic hard rockers AC/DC and The Rolling Stones, to the Southern/Cali-type rock styles of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Creedence Clearwater Revival, to the classic country of Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings... and you can hear it all, infused into both their original and cover songs.

In late 2015 they released a self-titled CD, featuring six original and four cover songs and was recorded at Bernie Lanoue's Backwoods Boogie Studio in West Topsham, Vermont. Blaise's friend, Lanoue was the production engineer and mastered the tracks, while he and Blaise did the final mixing along with input from the band. The RoadTrash Band held their CD release party at Windsor Station and are always psyched to return and rock the room!

Yes, the energy of this band is never more apparent than through a live setting. “If I'm not broken or bloody by the end of the night, then I clearly have not done my job,” Blaise declared. “Sometimes we have to use our stage monitors more as a blockade than a listening device!"
