A rock and roll band from Hamilton, Ontario. Formed in 2012 with the solidified lineup of Pete Van Dyk on Vocals and Guitar, Ed Van Dyk on Lead Guitar, J.D. Norwood on bass and vocals and Scott Carruthers on drums and vocals.
First EP Telephone along with the music video was release in Fall 2012 and featured on Alan Cross’ music blog. The band received a grant from Cobalt Connects in Hamilton to shoot another music video which was released on April 23rd 2013 along with the new song Rise the Falling Sun.
In September 2013, the band released the 7′ single Shake Me/Plan B, which was a limited run lathe cut record and received positive online press.
The newest offering simply titled “Pete Van Dyk & the Second Hand Band” is a good reflection of the wide range of influences on the band. Maintaining a DIY approach, the record was recorded and engineered by bassist J.D. Norwood, and tracked live off the floor to capture the raw energy of the music. Release date is April 21, 2015.
