RICHIE IS A WELL TRAVELED BASS PLAYING PHENOM. HE IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS FOR THE SABBATHY EDGE WITHIN THE BAND. HE HAS JUST AS MANY ALIAS'S AS HE HAS BASSES. HE ANSWERS TO JUST ABOUT ANY ONE SYLLABLE SOUND YOU CAN MAKE, SYD, DOC...THE LIST GOES ON.
ALTHOUGH THE YOUNGEST OF SIGNAL-30, TOMMY'S GUITAR PROWESS CAN BE RIVALED BY NONE. CONSTANTLY HAVING TO CHISEL THE BURNT EMBERS OFF THE BACK OF HIS GUITARS NECK, TOMMY HAS BECOME QUITE THE WOOD WORKER WHEN IT COMES TO FRET BOARDS. HE IS THE REASON YOU SEE MULTIPLE FIRE EXTINGUISHERS PLANTED AROUND OUR EQUIPMENT WHENEVER WE PLAY OUT. A BIG FAN OF SAINT RANDY RHOADS AND THE MIGHTY IRON MAIDEN, ALSO A BIG FAN OF THE FAB SAB.
STEVE CLAIMS TO HAVE NEVER HEARD MUCH OF THE STUFF WE DO WHEN HE JOINED. IF THAT IS TRUE, IT SPEAKS VOLUMES FOR THE AUTHORITY TASERS AND MINOR TYPES OF TORTURE POSSESS. HE IS NOW, PARTNERED WITH RICHIE, AN AVALANCHE OF BACKBONE.
AN OVER SIZED HOBBIT IN WHICH NIGHTMARES ARE MADE OF. THE TOTAL OPPOSITE OF YOUR FRIENDLY "HOWS EVERYONE DOING TONIGHT" HIGH OCTAVE CARBON COPY SINGER. WE HAVE ALL BEEN WATCHING THAT COPYCAT SHIT FOR YEARS. AS FOR BRIAN, THIS GUY SQUEEZE'S THRU THE DOOR , PUTS THE SHIT THRU THE SPEAKERS AND THEN ESCAPES BY CLIMBING OUT THE BATHROOM WINDOW. MORE A STORY TELLER THAN A SINGER, WE ALL WONDER HOW THIS GUY EVEN KINDA STILL HAS A THROAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.
We play a moderate amount of Black Sabbath and Ozzy solo stuff with many other golden nuggets from the hard/classic rock genre sprinkled within. We like to add our own spices to everything we cover, while trying to maintain the original integrity of the song. Van Halen, Judas Priest, AC-DC, as well as many other older and sometimes newer hard rock/metal titans are always included within our set lists.
Because we can.....no that's no reason, it's because we love to! There is just a certain feeling you get when you are playing some of the greatest most powerful music ever created. It is very, well I guess the word would be empowering. It just bleeds thru the music, we are at it's will! Don't get me wrong, we are not being held hostage, we play what we love to play. Come out and check us out when you get the chance, WHATS THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN, you go deaf and slip in your own vomit? Seems like a small price to pay!
It is without reservation, that we, Signal-30 as a whole, pledge the following allegiance." Where ever we roll with our rock, our intention is to destroy the entire block". In short, if you are looking for a band to just add ambiance to your establishment for an evening, you might just as well keep looking. When New York's SIGNAL-30 brings its equipment into your building there will be no option but to acknowledge their presence!
AC-DC, GRAND FUNK, OZZY, GnR, JUDAS PRIEST, TED NUGENT, UFO, TEXAS HIPPIE COALITION, GODSMACK, THIN LIZZY, VAN HALEN, RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH, HENDRIX, THE CULT, DEEP PURPLE, PAT TRAVER'S AND MANY OTHERS!

The members of Signal 30 have been rocking the Capital District and beyond, (Adirondacks, Connecticut etc.) since the 1980's. The members in various formats, have headlined several multi-band evenings of blistering rock carnage.They have also supported rock heavyweight's such as Ratt and others throughout the years.
Within the capital district region of upstate NY, Signal-30 is the term fire department personnel use to describe a working structure fire. We as a band, try to limit the destruction of an actual Signal-30, while trying to present all the power and intensity of one.
