About Us

 

PUSHMOWER has been called the most notorious band in Florida. They are a four piece, high energy, full assault rock band based out of Southwest, FL. The band was originally founded as a punk band in 1996 by Edd Snook and his long-time friend Jason Constable. After laying the groundwork for the hard-grinding PUSHMOWER they parted ways in 2000. Throughout the next few years the band endured a few line-up and style changes and has now found their strongest identity with the current line-up of Dreg Dope (vocals), Jeremy Piquette (bass), Edd Snook (guitar) and Robbie Vogel (drums). Their vast musical influences, everything from punk to metal to jazz fusion, have helped PUSHMOWER create a sound that is unique and identifiable.

All of the PUSHMOWER music is original and their single "War Machine" has been featured in rotation on WJBX 99.3 in Fort Myers, FL and has recently received airplay on 105.9 The Buzz in Sarasota, FL, WJRR 101.1 in Orlando, FL and other rock stations nationwide. Their music has also been featured on nationally syndicated rock shows TLP Show, Rock Solid Pressure, The Jay Stone Show on ROCKmetalTALK.com, Jessica Wylde, Kimmi and the Metal Deli, The Soupy Gato, and Localized Radio. PUSHMOWER has recorded over 50 songs over the years, working with Bieler Bros Records in 2010 on a three-song demo and has recently returned to the studio to record a new album. The new album reflects the degree of maturation and enhanced complexity which they have developed into a unique and identifiable signature sound. The evolution is clear, the elements that created PUSHMOWER are well preserved and represented but now at a much more advanced level.

They have brought their aggressive rock and hard hitting live performances to venues across Florida, from Jacksonville to Miami. In late 2009, PUSHMOWER won the 99X WJBX Championship competition, beating out 15 other bands, for the right to open the 99X-Mas Ball concert featuring national acts Avenged Sevenfold, Shinedown, Atreyu, and Framing Hanley. Not new to sharing the stage with national acts, PUSHMOWER has also performed with Saliva, Mushroomhead, Tantric, (Hed)PE, Stereoside, Samus Theory, Smile Empty Soul, Another Black Day, Straight Line Stitch, Ratt, Bullet Boys, Atheist, WASP, Eye Empire, Viasava, Texas Hippie Coalition and Clenchfist. The energy in their live shows has earned them a strong reputation of being a great live band.
