  • Bio

    Old Avenue has been causing a stir since the summer months when their performance momentum picked up throughout the triangle area. Immediately after adding the final member to their current lineup, Old Avenue performed as the headlining band for STRUT ’09 at the convention center. Shortly after they performed at Duke University in front of 1,500 students, and at the Midtown Music series at North Hills with the Embers to a crowd of 10,000.These performances led to repeat and additional bookings throughout the triangle, and have kept this eager band busy for months. With a sound that can only be described as funky, jazzy, infectious grooves that will make you dance, with melodies that were meant for sing alongs, Old Avenue is the essence of the upbeat happy tunes we’ve all been missing. As a four piece band with a great back story that links all members back to Cardinal Gibbons High School, each member will tell you that they feel fate brought them together. Equally and independently amazing musicians, with talent well beyond their years, Old Avenue is bound to make waves with the release of this new album. ‘Knockin’ on Doors’ is a refreshing break from the emotional angst that our youthful music lovers have been buried in for years. The upbeat, catchy tunes that pour from the piano keys and sing through the sound of the saxophone, immediately catch onlookers off guard. Old Avenue’s music projects an “It’s ok to’s even ok to dance” attitude. <br><br> Old Avenue is: Mark Cloos – vocals/guitar, Jason Hazinski – sax, Cameron Conklin – bass, Sean Steigerwald – percussion. <br><br> Contact Old Avenue.. Email: Phone: (919) 278-7248 …… What the press is saying about Old Avenue: …. “Old Avenue has all the elements of becoming one of those acts that crosses boundaries and bridges generational and cultural gaps… this band is stepping in the right direction toward fame.”.. -The Deep South Local Music Review …. “…[Old Avenue has a]…fresh sound in a world of stale…”.. -Morrison Field …. A word of caution: If you listen to Old Avenue, its songs will stick with you. But unlike other annoying pop songs that get stuck in your head, the light, playful melodies of Old Avenue will make you bop your head and smile every time you hum them. Songs like “Miss Summertime” and “Hey There” from its new album “Knockin’ On Doors” showcase crisp, clear guitar riffs that shine through a thickly blended rhythm section, with accents from saxophonist Jason Hazinski that are sure to catch your attention. Now, that’s the perfect cure for the winter blues. .. -Go!.. your guide to entertainment
