Fastball, Texas’ sensational alternative rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Saint Andrews Hall!
The band was formed in Austin in 1995 and is a trio consisting of Tony Scalzo (vocals, bass, keyboards, and guitar), Miles Zuniga (vocals and guitar), and Joey Shuffield (drums and percussion). They started off by making a name for themselves by doing local shows and they caught the eye of a local journalist who recommended them to Hollywood Records (a label that focuses on pop, rock, alternative, hip hop, and country genres). It wasn’t long before they got a record deal and they released their debut studio album (Make Your Mama Proud) in 1996. Their musical style is best described as a blend of alternative rock and pop rock (a genre that originated in the 1950s, influenced by the beat, arrangements, and style of rock and roll but with a greater emphasis on professional songwriting and recording craft). They went on to have a stellar career with 4 more studio albums, 1 live album, 1 compilation album, and 11 singles. They’ve received many accolades including 5 Austin Chronicle Awards (for Album of the Year, Best Video, Best Single/EP, Band of the Year, and Best Pop Band) and 2 Grammy Award nominations (for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and Best Long Form Music Video)
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to alternative rock and pop rock music!
