Meet The Band: Argonauts (BIG DAY IN)

Band Name: Argonauts

Location: Keyport, NJ and Richmond VA

Formed: Recently

Members: Dave Witte, Brett Bamberger, John Adubato, Chris Alfano

Releases: Soon...

Tell us about yourselves! 
Argonauts was formed when Dave and John, who both used to play in Burnt By The Sun, decided to get back together and start writing music again. Brett got involved shortly afterwards and Chris joined the band in late 2011, after original vocalist Dimitri Minikakis left to the group. We're all about great beer, great food, great music, great friends, and great times. We haven't released any music yet, but a demo should be online very soon, and we're hoping to record a full-length record in the near future.

Check out the first preview of Argonauts material here and don't miss their headlining set at BIG DAY IN #6, this Saturday, May 5th at The Haunt, 702 Willow Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850. 12 bands (including Meek is Murder, Burn Everything, Zruda and more), 10+ hours starting at 12 noon. $5 - all ages.
