In a time where commercial music is barely made with instruments, there is a band who draws upon sounds from the past to stand in defiance of the norm: That Band is PLANTATION.
PLANTATION is a Rock band formed in Vineland, NJ, in 2011 by Lead Guitarist PATRICK FIORE. The Original line up consisted of PATRICK FIORE and MAT KUHNREICH on guitars, DUSTY TRULLENDER on Bass and Vocals and BEN TORPEY on drums. This line up self- recorded a 4 song demo and played 100+ shows in 2011-2012. Also during this time period MATT WILLIAMS played a few shows on Bass guitar and DUSTY stayed on Vocals. This line-ups last show was at Bullshots in Atlantic City NOV 30th 2012. After that a Hiatus ensued due to personal differences.
After a few months of failed attempts at a reunion founder PATRICK FIORE decided he would continue on the legacy of PLANTATION with a new line-up. After a few months of auditions, the Current line up was formed in the SUMMER of 2013:
featuring COREY PRESNER on LEAD VOCALS/BASS, PATRICK FIORE on LEAD GUITAR/VOCALS, BRIAN SCHMIDT on Rhythm Guitar, and BEN TORPEY on DRUMS.
