Authority Zero, Arizona’s sensational punk rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Marquee Theater!
The band was formed in Mesa (Arizona) in 1994 by high school friends Bill Marcks (guitar), Jerry Douglas (guitar), and J.W. Gordon (drums). They started off by composing songs without any lyrics or basslines until 1995 when they recruited Jerry’s friend Jason DeVore as their lead vocalist. Shortly thereafter, they enlisted Jeremy Wood on bass to complete the band’s first official line up. The band’s been through many line up changes over the years and it currently consists of Jason (lead vocals), Mike Spero (bass), Chris Dalley (drums), Casey Longbine (air bass and tambourine). While their musical style can be broadly classified as punk rock, it also includes elements of ska punk (a fusion of ska and punk rock that often features wind instruments and horns such as saxophones, trombones and trumpets, making the genre distinct from most other punk rock), skate punk, surf rock, reggae rock, alternative rock, and melodic hardcore. They’ve had a stellar career with 5 studio albums, 2 demo tapes, 12 music videos, 1 compilation album, 3 video albums, and their music has been featured in video games (Project Gotham Racing 2, Tony Hawk's Underground, MX vs. ATV Unleashed), movies, and TV shows, and compilation albums.
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to punk rock music!
