Bobaflex
Bobaflex
Born out of the ashes of record label bankruptcy and the loss of the rights to their name, Bobaflex found themselves lost at sea when they started their own label BFX Records for the release their first independent full album Hell In My Heart in 2011. The album spawned two charting singles and set the mold for Bobaflex’s fiercely independent way of life.



Since Hell In My Heart Bobaflex has begun to solidify themselves as the model for independence. They have released two further independent albums under their BFX label (Charlatan’s Web – 2013 and Anything That Moves – 2015). These two resulted in another 2 charting singles and multiple self produced music videos with one million or more views. Bobaflex has just released Eloquent Demons on the label Thermal Entertainment, their most ambitious and well received LP yet, which has already produced four acclaimed singles – a cover of Hey You by Pink Floyd, the original Long Time Coming, Lights Out and Off With Your Head.



Bobaflex’s tireless ethos has also carried into their live shows and touring schedule. Having played all lower 48 states over the last 7 years, they have played 100+ shows every year including a record setting 154 in 2016 and 123 in 2017. This constant schedule has crafted the band into one of the tightest and realest live Rock ‘n’ Roll bands in the country.
Dark Sky Choir
Dark Sky Choir
Dark Sky Choir is an original hard rock/metal band from NJ. Formed in 2016, the band originally consisted of four veterans of the local music scene, playing the classic metal music they all grew up listening to. As their local popularity increased as a tribute band, it was inevitable that they soon began writing their own music.
Founding members Fred Gorhau and Mike Sakowski are the only two remaining original members in the current lineup. Gorhau has spent the last 7 years touring the USA and Canada as a lead guitarist for the holiday-themed progressive band The Wizards of Winter, playing alongside some of the original vocalists from Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Sakowski has been a drum teacher and career drummer for the past few decades, performing in the local scene with countless cover bands. Both have also toured the US and Europe with the metal band Exxplorer.
In late 2017, original vocalist, Hollywood How, and bassist Joe Stabile were replaced with Brian Allen and John Moyer, respectively. Allen has been the voice of various bands throughout the years, most notably as the front man for Vicious Rumors for almost a decade. Moyer is best known as the Grammy nominated bassist for the world-renowned metal group Disturbed, with whom he has recorded and toured since 2004.
Inspired by a lifetime love of metal, Dark Sky Choir brings years of live and recording experience to the stage with their own brand of hard rock and metal. Their debut album was released in 2017 and was soon followed up in March of 2018 with a brand-new, self-titled EP featuring the new lineup, as they embark on their first national tour, opening for Fozzy.
BRIAN ALLEN
Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Brian Allen is currently the front man for the Bay Area thrash-metal band Vicious Rumors. He has long been a staple of the metal scene, singing with such bands as Last Empire (who signed with the Underground Symphony Label in 1999), and Two-Headed Beast, since 2015. He joined Dark Sky Choir in the fall of 2017 to record their self-titled EP.
FRED GORHAU
Fred Gorhau is a veteran guitarist of the local NY/NJ music scene. Fred spent 20-plus years performing live throughout the US & Europe with the metal band Exxplorer. Since 2011, he has also toured the US & Canada as lead guitarist of the holiday-themed Wizards of Winter, and is a founding member of Dark Sky Choir.
JOHN MOYER
John Moyer is best known as the Grammy-nominated bassist and back-up vocalist for the heavy metal band Disturbed. Taking over in 2004 after Steve "Fuzz" Kmak was fired, Moyer has played bass-guitar with the group since their third studio album, Ten Thousand Fists. Moyer was also the bassist for the Texas-based Union Underground, before joining Adrenaline Mob from 2012 through 2014. After his departure from A-Mob, he was a founding member of the metal supergroup The Foundry, alongside former Iron Maiden vocalist Blaze Bayley, guitarist Rick Plester, and legendary Twisted Sister drummer, the late AJ Pero. In 2015 he joined Operation: Mindcrime, featuring former Queensryche frontman Geoff Tate. Following stints with Art of Anarchy (with Scott Stapp), and Stereo Satellite, Moyer joined Dark Sky Choir in the fall of 2017, and can be heard on their brand-new self-titled EP.
MIKE SAKOWSKI
Drummer Mike Sakowski has been a member of the local NY/NJ music scene for almost four decades as a performer and instructor. In 1983, Mike co-founded the metal band Exxplorer, with whom he played and toured for more than 30 years. Since the early 1990’s he has played with various groups including, Tin Pan Alley, Yesterday’s Child, and numerous cover bands. He is a founding member of Dark Sky Choir.
