Sammy McKee (Bitter Airplane, view-finder, fotos, Hyperstatic, Embers Is Sammy, Charlston Entry), Dave Cupp (Caterpillar Tracks, Dophesus, Man Halen, The Spiders), and Shannon McGee (Fairmount Girls, Opi Yum Yum).
“Inching toward the center of Cincinnati, Ohio’s underrated and burgeoning rock scene, Old City pay homage to the best parts of early 90s alternative music while concurrently playing by their own bass-heavy rules. Emerging out of a solo project from vocalist and guitarist, Sammy McKee, the band eventually grew from one to three, adding both Dave Cupp and Gabriel Molnar. The trio channels the likes of The Pixies and the best of Neil Young while unapologetically ripping through track after track of their past four EPs (The Sun Is My Light, Hot Horse, Freezer Burn & Alas, A Lass), a live album at Cincinnati’s premiere rock n’ roll bar, MOTR, and a self-titled full length album. Although this band is only three, their sound is full grown. Old City are currently Cupp (drums), McKee (guitar, vocals), and Shannon McGee (bass).”
