Currently in the process of recording our first CD album. Our music is pretty diverse in nature, in that each band member writes, and has his own diverse musical influences to bring to the band. We don't sound like we're trying to copy anybody. We're unique.



Hard rocking Harvey Headbanger has been tearing up the Cedar Rapids area for three years now.

"The band name originally came from a dream I had that I was at a show and I saw myself in a band called Harvey Headbanger. Everyone in the room was calling me Harvey," recalls Harvey.

As the name implies, "headbanging rock" is what we do.

Harvey explained, "Before I had assembled the band, I interviewed as many musicians as I could for every position looking for the right chemistry. Even after all that we still wound up changing some members. But then the guys that are with the band now weren’t available at the beginning, so everything happens for a reason, I guess."

When asked about the band's "live" shows, Harvey stated, "I can’t stand still on stage. The music makes me move. The rest of the guys don’t just stand there and play either. Nobody wants to go see a band stand there looking bored. That’s why most people say they are going to “see” a band, not “hear” a band. The energy we create gets the crowd going, which then gets us pumped up even more. We feed off the crowd, and then they do the same from us."

The current HARVEY HEADBANGER band lineup has been in place since January 1, 2010, and with the band's new chemistry has come up with ten original songs plus others in various stages of completion. Look for our new CD in early 2011!
