Appetite for Voltage

8pm Friday August 2
East Stage

Paying tribute exclusively to the music of GUNS N’ ROSES and AC/DC, Appetite for Voltage exists to bring those classic rock and roll songs to life at every show. The band has dedicated themselves to authentically recreating “note for note” renditions of songs that span the catalogue of hits as well as deep cuts, including the classic albums “Appetite for Destruction” and “Back in Black” in their entirety.

Formed in 2017, Appetite for Voltage has already toured sold-out clubs, festivals, and casinos including high-profile events such as “Rochester Party in the Park”, “Bands on the Bricks”, “Fairport Music Festival” and more. Each member of A4V brings several years of national touring experience to the band including performing on the “Monsters of Rock” cruise and providing direct support for heavyweights like ZZ Top, Motley Crue, The Ramones, George Thorogood, and countless others.

In their never-ending effort to emulate the music, lead singer Seth Martino commands the stage with his unparalled showmanship. Complete with wardrobe changes, his well-known Axl/Bon/Brian sounding wail and epic piano work on iconic songs like “November Rain” and “Live and Let Die,” you’ll leave feeling like you were just at a G N’ R or AC/DC show.  The band is equipped with two heavy hitter guitar players. Lead guitarist, Dylan DeSmit tackles the raw sounds of Angus Young and groove-conscious rhythms of Izzy Stradlin with ease. Hand him a guitar and those frets light up. Having toured alongside Billy Sheehan as Talas’s guitar player, the newest addition of the band, Kire Najdovski sets fire to the stage with his incomparable sound. He emulates the parts of Slash and Malcom young flawlessly. Brian Eberts brings years of experience and versatility to the rhythm section. His passion for the craft is evident on stage as his bass rumbles with excitement. Energy erupts from the stage when Todd Lange hits the drums. His playing is infectious and undeniably powerful. Together, Appetite for Voltage is a force to be reckoned with.

A4V is now proudly sponsored by Budlight/Budweiser in the upstate NY Region.
