SOLARSET is an all original quartet driven by mixed influences to make way for a completely new style of “rock”. The band was formed in Watertown, Connecticut, in the fall of 2011 with Alan Johnson on lead guitar, Justin Spry on vocals and rhythm guitar, Dan Krhla on bass, and Jason Hoyt on drums. From their poetic lyrics and melodic tones to their hypnotizing solos and percussive ingenuity, SOLARSET is a juggernaut of creativity and originality with a fresh new sound that is beyond classification. They are currently working on their debut album expected for release in summer of 2013. SOLARSET has live music, photos, and videos posted at www.facebook.com/solarset.
The SOLARSET picks were made using our white acetal guitar pick material, which is semi-transparent and works great with photo designs, such as the the awesome solar eclipse photo shown here. To order your own custom picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com!

This week’s Pick of the Week was made for the band Standby Anchors.
The members of Standby Anchors are old enough to know better, but young enough to not care. The band offers amped-up power-pop with a dark side for those about to rock. The current line up of the band is: Mike Devine (lead vocals, guitar), Brent Anderson (drums), Bryan Scrivener (bass), and Phil Anderson (lead guitar, vocals). Standby Anchors is based in Kansas City and plays original songs that are best characterized as modern alternative/indie rock with a definite appreciation for alt rock sounds of the 80s and 90s through the present day. Members of the band have appeared in earlier projects that have toured across the United States and that have released records on indie labels.

Featuring a whopping eleven-piece band, its four sizzling female singers put this group way over the top in the best of ways. The band features lead guitarist Joe “Ciid” Birardi, rhythm guitarist Bill Tuohy as well as bassist Wendy Williamson, and third guitarist Kevin Losardo. Add drummer Brian Picardi, percussionist Gerry Mac, and keyboardist Andy Ilyinsky and you have a full stage of rock and roll veterans that put on an unstoppable show.
Birardi’s “big” idea stemmed from watching the same old delivery in club after club where the music was governed by the stereotypical four-piece format. The EOS frontline is impressive indeed. Made up of Theresa Wilson, Dawn Szollar, Danielle Zelenak and Patti Ogletree, the four dynamic beauties spin rock and roll harmony between shifting lead vocal duties while the band holds it down behind them and it’s never a dull moment.
EOS has worked closely with several New Jersey charities including: Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon, The NJ Elks Army of Hope, Operation Jersey Cares, and The Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski II Foundation. Thanks to you, they have been able to raise nearly $20K for these causes to date. All proceeds from their downloaded songs will be donated to our troops via Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon. EOS thanks you for your support! Find out more about EOS at www.eosrocks.com!
The EOS picks were made on our white pearl material, using the full bleed option that allows their design to fill the pick to the edge. We love the detail of their design, and the pearl is a great material to support the variety of warm color tones. Order your own custom picks today at www.claytoncustom.com!

Danny Lee is an accomplished performer, writer, composer and instructor. With over 40 years of musical background, Danny’s influences are diverse and quite eclectic. His own musical style, though rock-oriented, displays this diversity in his own playing and compositions. Adept on a multitude of instruments, Danny favors the guitar as it satiates his musical style with its rhythmic, percussive, electronic, and dynamic capabilities … enabling him to put his particular and vast musical taste on a palette with all the colors of his choosing. Though still in demand as a performer, Danny has focused his attention on instruction of late, all the while still creating his own unique blend of recordings. Chief among Danny’s influences include artists such as: Joe Satriani, Randy Rhoads, Yngwie Malmsteen, Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page just to mention a few. Danny currently resides in Dallas, Texas and still records in his home studio. If you are looking for a hired gun on guitar, or interested in guitar, bass, keyboard or drum lessons you can contact Danny at email@example.com.
Danny’s custom design was printed on our acetal guitar picks. We love the bold look of the silhouette against the warm flame colors. On the back of the picks is a full flame background with Danny’s signature, which also is very eye-catching. For the design, the full bleed print option was utilized…meaning that the design goes all the way to the edge of the picks instead of having a small border around the edge of the art.

“At a Frogs Gone Fishinʼ show, fans are treated to heavy-hitting rock with the Frogʼs signature improvisational twist. In an age of auto-tuned vocals and laptop superstars, itʼs great to find a band who relies on harmonies, strong melody, and dynamic rhythms to keep their fans coming back. On any given night, the Frogs cut across genres and material from their two albums and never, ever, play the same set-list twice. This diversity in song choice and explosive improvisational energy has earned the band enthusiastic and devoted fans from places as far apart as Denver and New Orleans, Chicago and Austin, New York and San Francisco.”
