The Currently Classic is a five member band hailing from various areas of Southern California including Orange County, LA, and the Inland Empire. If you’re a fan of “beachy” indie rock, smooth and sometimes aggressive vocals along with pristine musicianship, The Currently Classic is here to cater to your pallet. The quintet composed of Harry (drums), Diego (bass), Matt (lead guitar), Jonny (rhythm guitar), and Peter (vocals), have made a steady buzz in indie and alternative rock circles and cities they have reached. TCC’s debut track “Loud Mute / Quiet Exits” was the sudden introduction of The Currently Classic into the airwaves in late 2017. It’s release and push was aided largely by word of mouth and alternate music forums.

Internet radio played a huge role in The Currently Classic becoming a full, performing band. When their debut track was initially released, TCC was not yet actually a band but more of a Duo (Jonny & Peter). Internet Radio hosts Neesh (the Neeshcast ), and Pip (the Pip Show of Giant Media Empire) aided in the push of Loud Mute into different states and different countries via the then internet radio platform, Radio Xenu. As “Loud Mute” gathered traction, the track soon became a station favorite and quickly was added to the stations daily musical plays. With the growth and acceptance of music lovers around the country, Jonny and Peter realized it was time to recruit new members and get the show on the road.

Mid 2018, the band recruited 3 amazing talented musicians by the names of Diego, Matt, and Harry. More listens, meant more questions, more questions meant less answers, and less answers meant only one answer… The Currently Classic was ready to go live. Several shows and many new friends and fans later, the band are ready to take on 2019. Having played venues such as, The Glass House, Chain Reaction and several other Southern California venues, TCC are ready to make their official LA debut. Energy, charisma, and most of all great music is what The Currently Classic aims to bring, as well as showcase songs from their upcoming EP due in early to mid 2019. Get your ears ready, your mind open, and of course get ready to have fun. The Currently Classic is coming for LA.
