Tangled is a new cover band just emerging onto the scene and we thought you all would want to know about them.  Actually, they have been out before, but now with an all new line-up of great musicians that are veterans of the local music scene.
Tangled actually formed 3 years ago and right off the bat they were hitting things hard.  They even competed in the WMGK House Band competition, making it all the way to the finals!  They didn’t win the title, but it gave them the push they needed to continue working hard. Unfortunately, that line-up didn’t last very long and a few of the original members decided to do a re-vamp.  So, just over the course of the last few months, they picked up guitarist and keyboard player, Rob Traegler and my good friend and super awesome Lead Guitarist, Mike Margiotta (aka “Guitar Mike”).
I interviewed their drummer, Gary Breza who told me, “Tangled is playing a great mix of music from the 70’s through to today’s Rock.  We feel most comfortable with the Classic Hard Rock style like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, AC/DC, among others, but we also play more current stuff by Godsmack, JET, STP and The Foo Fighters, too.  While we play classic favorites, we also like to dig down a little deeper and play some of those great “B” side beauties as well.”
Tangled had a GREAT turn out at their very first gig together on 1/11/13 at The Ivy Tavern in Hamilton, NJ and Gary told me, “If our first night out of the box is any indication of things to come, there is a ton of fun coming down the road for both the audience and the band.” This new line-up has great chemistry and each player brings a great deal of playing experience to the band.  Gary explained, “There is no lack of talent or weak spots in this band.  Everyone works hard and has specific strong attributes that they bring to the table and use to propel this band.”  Some of the places you will be able to see Tangled will be The Sticky Wicket in Hamilton, NJ; McGinn’s South in Jackson, NJ and McStew’s in Levittown, PA.  Their full schedule will soon be posted on their website www.tangledrocks.com and you can friend them on Facebook by looking up “Tang Led”.
If you can’t get enough of Classic Hard Rock, then Tangled is a band you will want to check out.  They play good Old School Hard Rock that is in your face.  They even do a few originals!  But Hard Rock is their roots and its what they do best so make sure to get out and see them!  Tangled is:  John Webb – Lead Vocals and Acoustic Guitar; Dino Colarocco – Bass, Lead and Backing Vocals; Rob Traegler – Keys, Guitar, Lead and Backing Vocals; Gary Breza – Drums and Backing Vocals and Mike “Guitar Mike” Margiotta – Lead Guitar.
