Music Connection magazine hails them as â€œModern rock that is radio ready.â€
Alanâ€™s Wrench was formed in 1997 by front man and vocalist Dave Simoncic, winner of â€œRockstar Las Vegasâ€ 2005, and drummer Marty Wilcox and has continuously brought new insights into modern rock-n-roll.
â€œRockâ€™s got a million faces, you just gotta find which one youâ€™re gonna wear,â€ Dave said in an interview with the Journal Star.
The bands sophomore CD release in late 2002, â€œRoom With A Viewâ€ created a loyal fan base; however, with the addition of guitarist Jeff Spaulding and bassist Tim King in 2003 the style of music drastically changed adding more of a harder edge. The bands music is based not so much as where music is today, but where itâ€™s going to be tomorrow. Being a rock band from a predominantly punk area like Orange County, they have excelled in creating excitement everywhere they go. The fame is also spreading from Las Vegas and Orange County, to cities in Northern California such as Sacramento and Chico. With their newest CD â€œWalk Awayâ€ (soon to be released) Alanâ€™s Wrench is ready to take their music to the next levelâ”€
Showcasing and securing opening slots at prestigious stages such as The House of Blues (Hollywood and Anaheim), The Galaxy Theatre and The Coach House (Orange County) and The Roxy Theatre (Hollywood), Voodoo Lounge (Riverside) and in 2004 landed a monthly gig at BB Kings at Universal City Walk. It is a band proving to promoters and club owners Alanâ€™s Wrench is â€œthe next big thing,â€ nabbing opening positions with such bands as Gary Hoey, Living Colour, The Tubes, Brother, Great White, Sponge, and Thin Lizzy.
Vocalist Dave Simoncic, in October 2005, was named â€œRockstar Las Vegasâ€ as presented by KLAS-TV Channel 8 and 92.3 KOMP Radio respectively.
