The Nied’s Hotel Band, voted Pittsburgh’s “Best Bar Band” in the 2016 Pittsburgh Magazine Readers Poll, is a powerhouse recording and performing rock-n-roll and R&B group from Pittsburgh, PA. (USA). NHB delivers the hardworking, blue collar, muscle that has made Pittsburgh a legendary rock-n-roll city. A recent review by The
Pittsburgh City paper proclaimed,”The Nied’s Hotel Band could be called The E-Street Band of Pittsburgh.” In addition, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto has proclaimed July 17th as “Nied’s Hotel Band Day” in honor of the bands impact on the local music scene and their unwavering support of charitable causes. The band includes some of the best-known and respected players in the region, including singer John Vento (who is, perhaps, the hardest-working front man around), guitarists Tim Hadley and Jim McCullough, plus keyboardist Fred Delu and sax
man Ed Jonnet, who last joined forces as members of Pittsburgh’s most beloved rock/soul band – The Rhythm Kings. Newest members Willy Franklin (bass) and Lou Ross (drums) complete the stellar lineup. The band is often joined by guitarist Ian Arthurs, one of the very best young R&B players this side of Memphis. Their high energy, entertaining, and audience engaging concerts have quickly earned them a reputation as one hell-u-va live act. The band has made a major investment in its live production sound and lights and is blessed to have one of the finest and most professional crews around.
