History of the Band
In Oct 2012 a band, The Party Rockers, was formed by Scott (drummer) and a few friends. The band wanted to be involved in the community and so they chose to support two charities with the money they raised at gigs. Seven years later, the band members have changed the band name to Sonyk Vortex and they continue to have a blast rocking out for charity.
Memphis on Vocals
I’m the vocalist for Sonyk Vortex. I’m 13 and I attend the Public Academy for Performing Arts. I’ve had a passion for singing and dancing for as long as I can remember. I’m also involved in the worship team at my church. I love to connect with the audience through singing and performing.
SCOTT ON DRUMS
I’m the drummer for Sonyk Vortex and I’m 13. I mostly play drums, but I also play piano, guitar, bass, alto saxophone and the violin. My favorite band is Bring Me The Horizon.
Stella on Bass (Part time)
I am 15 years old and I play the bass for Sonyk Vortex. Whenever I am not playing tennis I am playing bass. I can't really pick a favorite band because I listen to all types of music. But if I had to choose it would be Alice in Chains, Nirvana, and definitely The Beatles.
NeiL ON GUITAR
I am a singer/songwriter/guitarist inspired by rock and roll legends: Neil Young, Rory Gallagher, and the Grateful Dead. You may have seen me at Outpost Performance Space, Route 66 Summerfest, or your nearest open mic, playing with The House Band, Supershades, Bad Wombat, or by myself. I play music to tell stories, convey moods, and have fun.
Franklin on Bass (Part Time)
I enjoy music as well as wrestling. Some of my favorite bands are Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, and the Beatles. It’s an honor to be a part of this band.
