"Energetic" and "Melodic." These are the two words most used to describe the sound of Houston-based rock band ON TONIGHT, though many other words can also do the job. Through vocalist/rhythm guitarist Dave Ng's punk and R&B leanings, Lead Guitarist Marc Hamilton's honky-tonk and metal stylings, the Tejano and classic rock upbringing of Brian May-endorsed bassist Juan Cantu and the influence of big-band and emo on drummer James Bonelli, OT has crafted an eclectic sound that hints of Foo Fighters, Social Distortion, Sick Of It All, John Mellencamp, Alkaline Trio, The Gaslight Anthem and Merle Haggard, sometimes within a single song.
On Tonight crafts highly accessible songs that outline themes such as success and setbacks, positivity and fond remembrances, melded perfectly into driving beats, emotive musical arrangements and powerful vocal melodies.
Seeing On Tonight live is an in-your-face experience...literally. hard-hitting drums and rock-solid bass supporting masterful guitar work and plenty of stage energy that ultimately spills out into a crowd of eager participants, singing in unison and leaving it all out on the floor. It's this camaraderie that OT strives for and expects at every one of its shows.
With a 4-song EP out now and more tunes on the way, On Tonight is ready to bring its brand of rock to any stage it sets foot on.
