What others are saying!

Are these guys talented?  Without a doubt.  Dedicated?  Yes, they will play anywhere, and do it well.  Are they a young band?  By the numbers, maybe.  But they are old souls! Old musicians, souls who channel bands like The Dead, Phish, and The Allman Brothers, but not without making them new, better, and their own.  A performance of Pink Floyd's spacey classic, "Pigs" was truly incredible. The Dead songs rolled along like a slow burning train or like old friends carrying memories and taking me on a trip back to my youth.

The Sound 

Stoneclad brings the sound of the 60’s to life with state of the art equipment and old style power! Starting from the ground up, Stoneclad utilizes a new Mackie ProFXv2 Series mixing console for incredible sound and clarity! The signal is then sent through a 100’ audio “snake” to our signal processors including a Peavey crossover system. From there the signal is sent through to a new Peavey IPR 7500 power amp driving a pair JBL’s state of the art SRX815's for the high and mid frequencies. The earth rattling lows are provided with a pair of new JBL PRX 418S Subs powered by two Samson SX2400 power amps bridged at 1500 watts per sub. For the bigger rooms and outdoor shows we add a pair of JBL JRX 15’s, powered by a state of the art Crown XSI 1500 poser amp, 2 x JBL JRX 18s's subs powered by 2 Carvin HD1500 amps bridged at 900 watts and our monster 18 scoops powered by a EP2500. Together this system is capable of producing some of the best sound in WNY! Many people wonder why we utilize both new and old style power amps. The answer is easy. The new D style transistor power amps deliver power but in our opinion they have no ass (real thumping power) hence the reason they drive our top end! The older “boat anchor” style amps, although weighing in at a hefty 80+ pounds each, deliver the massive thumping power to push our subs. The result, crystal clear high’s and mid’s with a bottom end that lets the Roosters drums be felt as well as heard!
Is it loud, it can be but, crystal clear sound is our goal! Together with the sound mastering of Mike “The Wookie” Whitney, we have the best sound in the area!
Coupled with a state of the art DMX controlled light system, Stoneclad is sure to please every crowed!

The Light Show!

Stoneclad's Light show consists of 3 RGBUV DMX par cans, 4 mini RGB Mini DMX par cans, 2 ADJ Stinger Spots RGB DMX rotators, 2 Chauvet DJ COLORstrip LED Wash Lights and 2 UKing DMX Spyder lights.  Controlled with a Chauvet Xpress Usb to DMX controller via ShowExpress, the stage and crowed is awash with all the colors of the rainbow! Spectacular effects with light and sound engage even the most subtle members of the audience!!! 



The long BIO!

From an attic window in some small town in America came the psychedelic wanderings of a madman on the guitar. From another part of the country came the sound of a baby hushed to sleep with the soft, yet clearly deranged playing of a young man. And in yet other parts of the world the sounds of a back beat on bass that caused the heavens to shudder in wonder! In a small room in WNY a drummer was carried off in a frenzy of musical thunder that he had never experienced before... Far far away came the soft yet unmistakable sounds of keys rattling at the fingers of a man searching for an outlet for his soul!

As these sounds, separate yet equal, came together by the four winds that carried them aloft, they exploded into a sound with a force that could not be denied! The thunder rumbled through the heavens from the point where the sounds collided, back to our musicians.

As our four musicians quit playing, struck with a feeling that somehow, somewhere, something had changed in the world around them, they put their instruments away. The four musicians slept but, dreams invaded their peaceful slumber. These were not the dreams of happy men, but the dreams of those possessed. In these dreams colors swirled to the sounds of ancient thunder, trees bowed and trembled in fear, a man in black appeared with keyboards in hand ready for whatever was the will of the keys... The creatures of the forest ran, not away from the sound, but towards it, as if a magnet was pulling their very soul further into the forest.

As our forest friends came closer to the sound, there was smoke and lightning all around them, but they were not afraid! They pushed on through the smoke and lightning knowing that they were about to behold a wonder that had not been seen in many a long moon. Some might say that such things do not exist, that it is only in the mind...

There in a circle were now five musicians the man in black had found his way. The smoke and thunder were coming from them as they played. Surrounded by a dozen or more Nvyunuwi dancing in all colors of the rainbow, their movements shaking the very foundation of the earth they danced upon. At first the animals could not believe their eyes; they had heard legend of the Nvyunuwi (nun-yoo-noo-wee) from the fire circles of the ancient Indians that had once walked the land. But, never had they seen one let alone a dozen or more.

As the music built into a frenzied rhythm, all the creatures joined in this dance. For hours into the night they danced as our four musicians played. It seemed that days went by. The rhythm overtook them and they danced...

Just before daylight, the music gained even more power and our friends were dazed in the awe of it all and yet they could not stop dancing... And just as they thought they would all explode into some cosmic void of color and sound the music stopped, the daylight appeared over the horizon and the five musicians were gone. As our friends looked around, murmurs could be heard. Who, what, was it just a dream... were they ever here at all?

And then they saw it, one word was burnt into the forest floor. That word was:


Some say that if you walk far enough into the hills of Allegany County, you can still hear the sound, and if you follow that sound far enough, you might just find them, the Nvyunuwi, dancing to our five musicians, the only ones allowed to carry their name
