BYOG began as a funk-rock instrumental ensemble with a small, loyal following in the Charleston, South Carolina area. But the band had a vision of being able to do more musically than their instrumental format allowed. Fortuitously, in early 2013, fate brought together musicians, J.P. Treadaway (drums) , Phil Pasquini (keyboards), David Buck (lead guitar) and singer/songwriter, Blake Zahnd (lead singer/guitar), at a benefit show where all were performing. The musical connection was immediate and electric. All knew that a new chapter was about to begin.

Six months later, armed with a suitcase full of original songs, the band flew to Austin, Texas to record at Willie Nelson’s renowned Arlyn Studios. The result was Out Of The Dark, a collection of hook-laden rock and roll that showcased the band’s potential. Since that time, the band has continued to fine-tune their sound. Bluesy B-3 and piano keyboards, gritty guitar work, unforgettable melodies, intelligent lyrics and a driving funky back beat are the hallmarks of BYOG.

Live shows are a high-energy dance party! Along with their original material, BYOG has mined the archives of rock history to include an eclectic array of covers. Dispersed throughout their performances, these gems include seldom-heard songs from the likes of Allen Toussaint, The Band and Little Feat, to name a few. 

BYOG has been steadily touring the Southeast, opening for performers such as Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Devon Allman and legendary Allman Brothers drummer, Butch Trucks. BYOG is David Buck, Phil Pasquini, JP Treadaway, Blake Zahnd, and Cory Takack. Their most recent release, a 3-song EP entitled Flood City, is some of their best work to date and is available on i-Tunes, Spotify and CDBaby.
