Big Handsome is a hard rock band formed in 2016 by Steve Seachrist and Adam Beigler in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. With the addition of guitarist Ziggy Bang in Summer 2017, the group began gigging locally and developing their own sound influenced by a wide variety of artists such as Black Sabbath, Frank Zappa, Hüsker Dü, and more. After making an appearance playing on a flatbed trailer in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, the band started to gain a considerable amount of credibility in their area. Big Handsome so far has self-released one album and one EP.
Black Horizon is a four piece thrash metal band from Northeastern Pennsylvania. We’ve previously opened for acts like Soulfly and Chelsea Grin. We have an album and an ep available on all streaming platforms along with a music video for the song ‘ The Traitor’. For fans of Slayer, Pantera, and Metallica.
