Alternative rock band from Los Angeles.
Formed in September 2016, CHECKERNECK is quickly moving up in the underground LA Rock scene. They have a completely unique sound, that is edgy and intimate. It’s hard to find a comparable sound. CHECKERNECK is an aggressive blend of chaos and harmony that has tones of grunge, alternative, punk, and garage. Has drawn influence from Nirvana, Slayer, Cage the Elephant, Smashing Pumpkins, Black Sabbath, The Melvins, and more. More than anything they like playing together and always have a fun time doing it. They have rocked spots like the Whisky A Go Go, Viper Room, Soho Santa Barbara, Canyon Club, Silverlake Lounge, The Trip, and The Mint. The band completed a demo EP titled Dirt in May 2017, which was recorded on their own. They recently went into a professional studio and finished recording an EP, which will be released in January 2018.
CHECKERNECK consists of Andrew Greenup on lead guitar and vocals, Holden Woodward on drums, Jesus Contreras on guitar and Chris Cola on bass.
