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.
SCOTT ON DRUMS
I’m the drummer for Sonyk Vortex. I mostly play drums, but I also play piano, guitar, bass, alto saxophone and the violin. My favorite band is Bring Me The Horizon.
Riley on Guitar
I am a singer-songwriter and guitarist. I have many musical influences including Weezer, Green Day, Ramones, and Deftones. My guitar of choice is a Carbonetti, custom-made for me by Jimmy Carbonetti from the Brooklyn-based band Caveman. I love being a part of Sonyk Vortex.
Elliott on Guitar
I’m a singer-songwriter and I play lead guitar for Sonyk Vortex. I have musical influences from just about every genre but the most influential group for me has been Grateful Dead. “If you get confused listen to the music play.”
Stella on Bass (Part Time)
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.
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.
