About Ants in the Kitchen
Ants In The Kitchen was formed in late 2010 by Geoff Metts (Western Aerial) on vocals and guitar and Dain Ryan (Stone In Love, Dirty Little Fingers) on bass. "We had played shows together in separate bands and had talked about how it would be fun to work on a project together," explains Ryan. "We came up with a great set of material we'd always wanted to play and decided to call some friends and start a band". Rounding out the lineup with Alex Shakeri on piano and Jolie Clausen (Carlton Jackson, Duffy Bishop) on drums, the group has developed a unique sonic brand.
Having played some of the biggest stages and festivals in the Northwest in various other bands, the members of Ants In The Kitchen perform with the swagger and confidence of seasoned pros. Their high energy set list includes a diverse collection of favorites ranging from Robert Johnson and Sam Cook to Tina Turner and the Rolling Stones. "We play a wide variety of songs but we put a twist on them that is all our own making it a cohesive collection.
For the Rock Of Ages event the band has called in a number of special guests to add to the excitement. "It gives us a chance to play music we love with people we like to work with and it raises the energy for everybody". Special guests include Brian Harrison on guitar, Doug Smith on sax and back up singers known as the 'Kitchenettes'. "We've got a big show planned and decided to go big with the instrumentation too.
