Vote for Pedro can be easily summed up in two words: EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS. While most local musicians were cutting their teeth in the basement or playing bottom-feeder local gigs, the members of Vote for Pedro were touring regionally and nationally in support of their respective releases.
The band features former Lost Parade and Soul Kiss member Jeff Faulkner (guitar, vox), former Lost Parade drummer Mex, and former Missile Silo Suite bassist Chris Boslett. Mix in Eric Wulff (Area 51, My 2 Planets) on vocals and Josh Hamer on boards, guitar and vocals, and you have what we like to refer to as quite possibly the world’s greatest cover band.
Individually, the guys have played to packed houses in local venues including the Duck Room, Cicero’s, the Pageant, Mississippi Nights, Riverport/UMB Pavillion, and the American Theater. Not to mention opening spots for such notable acts as Blue October, Foo Fighters, the GO-GOs, Green Day, PointFest, Rick Springfield, The Urge and ZZ Top. And let’s not forget the regional and national radio air play.
While other cover bands stick to one genre, Vote for Pedro covers the whole spectrum of popular music. Their set list contains such modern rock bands as The Killers, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Jet. They also throw in a touch of classic rock by the likes of Queen, Cheap Trick, AC/DC, and Tom Petty.
