Grasshopper Pie
Grasshopper Pie What started as a basement jam session in 1995 has evolved into one of the tightest, most well-known bands in Ohio. Formed on the campus of Bowling Green State University in Northwest Ohio, Grasshopper Pie frequents venues and festivals throughout the Midwest. The band's sound incorporates many styles that appeal to fans of all kinds of music. Their great original songs provide a framework for improvisational onstage jamming. Since 1995 Grasshopper Pie has played hundreds of gigs, building loyal followings in places like Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and other cities throughout Ohio and the surrounding states. This road-tested quartet has honed a sound all its own, and shared stages along the way with the likes of Merl Saunders, ekoostik hookah, Derek Trucks Band, The Recipe, Melvin Seals, Jazz Mandolin Project, Keller Williams, Lake Trout, The Big Wu, Dark Star Orchestra and Ray's Music Exchange, among others. A melding of classic rock, blues, jazz, bluegrass, country and other American roots music forms Grasshopper Pie's unique sound, and has led to the band's success in consistently filling clubs throughout the region. Melodic tunes are contrasted with spontaneous toe-tapping boogie jams to make Grasshopper Pie's live shows engaging and enjoyable. Grasshopper Pie is John Horvath (drums), Warren Kile (bass), Greg Lesinski (guitar/vocals) and Mike Switzer (guitar/vocals).
