HOLLYSTOCK 2016 FESTIVAL
See MACH22 and more live Saturday Aug 13th!!
As the name implies, MACH22’s rise is set to mach speed, with no turning back. Their presence, attitude, and sound, are winning audiences over at every show.
MACH22 is as authentic as you can get in a pure rock and roll band. Their songs span the emotional spectrum, capturing that classic feel with a modern rock edge. With their killer riffs, bluesy rhythms, and soulful delivery, they keep their audiences hooked for the entire set. The MACH22 sound echoes the tone of classic rock but imprints a style all their own.
They may be young, but they’ve already racked up some impressive credentials: Most recently opening for Guns ‘N Roses on the “Not in This Lifetime… Tour”, Jay Z, Linkin Park, Kid Rock, Slayer, Five Finger Death Punch, Godsmack, Stained, Slash, Halestorm, Black Label Society, Steel Panther, and many, many more. They have also made their mark at such events as the Made in America Festival, as well as repeat appearances at Rocklahoma.
When MACH22 hits the stage, they perform and sound like seasoned professionals. Each member has a remarkable history in music that makes this possible. Lamont Caldwell is an all-around musical force, with several instruments and bands under his belt. In 2001 he was asked to join the band of soul singer Bilal Oliver as a saxophonist. That was quickly followed by tours with Erykah Badu, Common, Kirk Franklin, Dave Matthews Band, The Roots, and most recently Jay-Z. Sebastian LaBar was born into a life of Rock and Roll. As the son of legendary guitarist Jeff LaBar, of Cinderella fame, he was personally trained by his father and soon after broke out on his own as he toured the east coast. Ric Haas being the youngest member, plays guitar with more season than his age reveals, and recently worked on new music for Dee Snider. Jaron Gulino anchors the MACH22 sound with thunderous bass tone and unique grooves. Jaron grew up touring in thrash and death metal bands before fronting and releasing three records with the metal trio On Top. He has also filled in for Baltimore rockers’ Charm City Devils, and performed in the studio with other notable acts. Music has been in Damian‘s life for as long as he can remember. Multi-talented, he has performed on all parts of the stage, opening for many multi-platinum acts. Before joining MACH22, Damian fronted and played guitar in many bands, as well as self-producing three full-length albums and one EP.
The band's 2014 debut album "Sweet Talk Intervention" was recorded at Sound Dragon Studios in Nashville, TN, engineered by Ronnie Honeycutt, and produced by Jeff LaBar. It was mastered at Sterling Sound in NYC by UE Nastasi, whose credits include AC/DC, The Ramones, and Led Zeppelin.
The “Like My Chances” EP followed in 2015 with a more modern production. It was recorded by Joe DeLuca at Why Me? Studios in Lindenwold, NJ and mixed/mastered by Chris “The Wizard” Collier (Korn, Lynch Mob, Lita Ford).
