After forming in Buffalo in 2006, Aqueous has earned a reputation as one of the most promising improvisational rock acts in the country. Best known for their “groove rock” stylings, guitarist Mike Gantzer, guitarist/keyboardist David Loss, bassist Evan McPhaden and drummer Rob Houk have developed a unique sound characterized by meticulous compositions and rich exploratory jams that easily transition from laidback, in-the-pocket grooves to furious, high-intensity peaks.
Composed of longtime friends, over the years Aqueous’ members have developed near-psychic abilities with one another, enabling them to stretch each song while maintaining a staggering degree of precision. In a live setting, the group’s undeniable technical prowess truly shines, making for dynamic performances that bring fans back night after night.
Their sophomore studio record Color Wheel marks a new era of sonic exploration for the four-piece.
Whether they’re headlining and selling out venues across the U.S. or performing stand-out sets at notable events like Summer Camp, The Peach Music Festival, Jam Cruise and Suwannee Hulaween, it’s clear that fans across the country are clamoring to hear more from the Buffalo-based act. With the hype around the group growing, Aqueous is on the brink of making a huge breakout as the project enters its second decade of existence.
