Pitchforks and Halos

Local Favorites Rock and Roll


A high energy rock band based in New Philadelphia, features a very wide array of music. Variety is definitely evident with three full sets of the widest range of cover tunes around, including anything from The Cure to Johnny Cash and The Ramones to Motorhead. (All with their own unique spin on them of course)! They also offer a set of their own original songs that ranges from a slower blusey southern rock number to a real burner of a guitar riff heavy instrumental and everything in between. Pitchforks and Halos definitely has something for everyone. This locally based band is comprised of Matt Smith on Lead vocals and harmonica, Sam Shook on lead guitar, Brent DeVore on rhythm guitar, Mike Lyon on bass guitar and vocals, and Steve Sicurella on drums and backing vocals. They can be found playing in Tuscarawas county and surrounding areas on a regular basis and are currently celebrating their 10 year anniversary as a band. If you like rock and roll, we know you will enjoy. Come join us right after the Festival Opening Ceremonies and Plate Auction and help get the show started!
