Ammunition a regular draw at John and Peter’s in New Hope

ammunition new hope free pressAmmunition will be blasting their unique form of hard rock at John and Peter’s this Friday, June 27 at around 9:30 p.m. The Lambertville, New Jersey-based band is comprised of Spencer Johnson, (handling lead vocal duties), Stefan Bogner, on lead guitar, Rick Anthes (bass) and Peter Palilonis on the drums.

Stylistically, the Ammunition sound could be described as straight-ahead, heavy rock. But the varied influences of all four members add a subtlety and diversity which presents itself to the careful listener. Remnants of classical, funk and classic rock remain as trace evidence of these different backgrounds, creating a depth which sets it apart from the more immediately apparent influence of bands like Motorhead, Alice in Chains, and AC/DC.

The band has released two EP’s, due in large part to the help of Pier Giacalone, of Hopetown Studios in Bucks County — A three-track demo in 2011 and another EP in 2012. Lately, they’ve been doing memorable gigs at John & Peter’s on the last Friday night of each month, and Dean Ween sometimes joins in. Awesome.

Legendary New Hope rock club John and Peters is located at 96 S. Main St. in beautiful downtown New Hope; (215) 862-5981.
