Relying on “poignant lyrics, three-part harmonies, and one hell of a drummer”** the band features lead vocalist Ryan Argast, guitarist and vocalist Brian Johnson, keyboardist and vocalist Matt Gaudiano, drummer Eric Somers-Urrea, and bassist Aaron Heiy. In 2012 the band ventured away from being a solo act behind singer Ryan Argast and become more of a collaborative group walking away from a production deal in the process. With a degree in music performance, drummer Eric Somers-Urrea creates a strong rhythmic backbone for bassist Aaron Heiy’s deep pocket to groove over. Hammond artist Matthew Gaudiano on keys teams up with guitarist Brian Johnson to create the hard-hitting and aggressive center of the band. However, the biggest standout factor for Marina City is that it features 3 lead vocalists. Gaudiano’s smooth R&B style and Johnson’s raw punk sound compliment the power and emotion of frontman Ryan Argast. Said Chris Triebes owner and talent buyer of Mojoes In Joliet, IL "Marina City puts on one of the most energetic & passionate live shows I have seen from a local-area band in a long time"
