A 90's born and influenced 5-piece rock band, combining old school and new school, Glen Street originated in New Hartford in 2013, including current members, Nick Vanderwood, Alex Verbickas, Adam Manion and Trent Carrig. Each member began writing songs together at the of age 15, and continue, now at the age 20, to grow after deciding to leave college for the music.
Before the current lineup began, former members Max Pfisterer and Will Gordon urged local singer from New York Mills, Nick Vanderwood to join the band back in 2013. His singing career in the area began at age 12, having sung in bands Intermission and Sweet Vendetta, all while performing National Anthems for Boston Celtics Games. When he joined the group, Adam Manion the drummer, Alex Verbickas the guitarist, Dylan Crawford the bassist and keyboardist Trent Carrig, immediately hit it off writing songs.
Since the lineup change in 2013, Glen Street has had the opportunity to play with the following National Acts: Nonpoint and Framing Hanley at the Watertown Exhibition Hall, Pat Travers at the Westcott Theatre, and Korn, Stone Sour and Skillet at the Krockathon 2017 at the Lakeview Ampitheatre. When the members first began writing, their influences were primarily from the 90's, including bands Stone Temple Pilots, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sublime. However, as time went on, their style and influences had gone back in time to what inspired our favorite 90's bands: to the true original rockers of the 60's and 70's. Some of which include, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.
Currently, the band feels it is in our best interest to expand our influences to all types of styles and artists as we grow older, for it is most important to enjoy all types of “genres” for what they truly are as a whole: music.
