One of Baltimore’s newest bands ‘Driven to Clarity’ is certainly driving hard and fast throughout the Washington metro area live-venue circuit. A four-piece band that adds a bit of funk to their acoustical format, which seems to working. They were voted one of the Top Ten Best bands in Baltimore, put themselves on the Recher’s Local Artist showcase, headlined at Rams Head Live—all while attempting to finish their first EP.
The band members include Andy Branigan (vocals/guitars/saxophone), Dave Cohen (guitars/vocals), Carl Pfanstiehl (bass/vocals), and Nick Cellinese (drums). Most of the band is from the Baltimore area and have managed to strike a chord with the locals. Performing at Hungerstock last year and several shows at the Hard Rock Café, they have managed to pull out a bit of a local crowd when they perform. Their set list is comprised mostly of cover tunes, but they are mixing in a few of their originals. You can hear a few on their social networking sites like Facebook.
Their next live show is December 15th: 5-7pm at Sliders Bar and Grill – Stock the Shelves Charity Event benefiting the Maryland Food Bank. Probably the best news for this band; the group managed to hit 1,300 fans—doing it the hard way, one show at a time.
