To No End: Groovy blues-rock from Cincinnati

Incognito pick of the week: To No End

To No End scored a lot of points with me before I heard a note of the music. First, the band is from Ohio like yours truly. Second was the description that the band “blends the genres of blues, alt-country, grunge, pop, and progressive rock.” I don’t know about you, but that’s a pretty intriguing description to me. Finally, in leaving his contact number, singer Nick Dellaposta revealed that he is from the same region of Ohio as me.

One thing is clear as soon as you start listening to this band. It has a real old-time sound to it…like a lot of the blues-rock bands of the 70s. It’s heavy. It grooves. And it rocks. The next thing I noticed is that Nick Dellaposta sounds a lot like Steven Tyler. You know, before Steven Tyler started writing sappy songs for big-budget movies of questionable merit. But wait! There’s more! The vocals also have shades of Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy. No, I’m not kidding.

This is a tight group of musicians that knows how to get people shaking their backside. The songs will make you want to bust out that old Deep Purple t-shirt and go out driving in your shaggin’ wagon.
