Heavy Hinges (Cincinnati)
Nominated for the “Best New Artist” trophy at the 2012 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, Heavy Hinges features longtime bandmates Dylan Speeg (guitar/vocals) and Andrew Laudeman (bass), who teamed up with fellow local music vets Jeremy Singer (guitar) and Brian Williamson (drums), plus relative newcomer Maya Banatwala (vocals/ukulele), after their longtime, popular Cincinnati band Buckra ended its 12-year run in late 2011. After the majorly eclectic Buckra, Heavy Hinges focus more on swinging Rock/Soul, but continue to provide similarly entertaining live shows for local fans.
