Some people say rock & roll is dead. If so, they haven't heard the PA-based band Eighteenth Hour. Eighteenth Hour’s musical prowess has earned them a reputation for being one of the area's best live original bands. Their music resonates with a broad audience as exemplified by the eclectic mix of artists they have shared the stage with including Bon Jovi, 3 Doors Down, Bret Michaels, Thin Lizzy, Spacehog, Collective Soul, Hinder, Skid Row, Days of The New, Saigon Kick, The Outfield, Ratt, Blessid Union of Souls, Great White, and blues great Shemeika Copeland.
Eighteenth Hour's remarkable list of accomplishments includes being named "Best Band" in the Lehigh Valley Magazine's Best of The Valley Poll, “Best Original Band" in the Reader's Choice Poll of Pulse Weekly Magazine, winning the 95.1fm WZZO 15th Annual Backyard Bands Competition, and winning numerous Lehigh Valley Music Awards including "Best Rock CD" and "Best Original Band". The band’s high energy performances have captivated audiences along the east coast including such notable venues as PPL Center (Allentown, PA), Alive@Five Festival (Stamford, CT), World Cafe Live (Philadelphia, PA), The Bitter End, (New York NY), and the main stage of the USA’s largest free music festival, Musikfest.
The upcoming self-titled CD "Eighteenth Hour" (August 23, 2019 - Escape Music Ltd) showcases straight-ahead rock & roll songwriting at its finest while capturing Eighteenth Hour's live performance musicianship, which is what this band has become known for over the past decade.
“One thing is for certain, Allentown loves Eighteenth Hour and Bon Jovi, and when the two came together Tuesday night at the PPL Center, it was rock and roll bliss. For Eighteenth Hour, it was a natural fit. The band is no stranger to the arenas, and has opened for Three Doors Down, Collective Soul, Bret Michaels, Spacehog, and several other groups. The band took the stage full of energy and dazzled the crowd for a short set.” - The Valley Ledger, Diane Fleischman
“For an unsigned act, Eighteenth Hour is pretty much playing in the big leagues. Just look at their latest string of victories.” - Origivation Magazine, Annamarya Scaccia
"Don't be fooled by the laid-back look of T-shirt and jeans - Eighteenth Hour has a high-octane show to go along with hard-driving rock. Judging from audience response, it's a surefire method that promises a hefty harvest."
- The Morning Call, Tony Sienzant
“Selfishly, I would be more than happy to keep this band as a bright shining gem all to my myself and the tri-state area of PA, NJ, and DE, but a band as talented as this begs to be shared nationally.” - 3encores.com, Kelly Nova
