Light Weight

Light Weight officially formed in October 2013 and has quickly become a recognizable name and highly recommended group. The band has been invited to play private and corporate events, weddings, casinos, and country clubs. The group also performed at a political rally for the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, as well as being asked to perform at a separate event for Bernie Sanders. The line up consists of Katie Blake on lead vocals, Matt Rinkunas on guitar, Joe O’Malley on bass, Tom MacDonald on keyboard, and John Gallas on drums.

Each member stems from an extensive musical background that creates Light Weight’s solid sound and chemistry. Often referred to as the “jukebox of cover bands”, Light Weight plays a significant amount of ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, as well as today’s hits. The group appeals to every generation’s musical taste while making each recognizable song their own. Light Weight prides themselves on a diversified set that entices each audience member to participate. Excited and determined to make a big impact, Light Weight intends on a high-energy professional presentation while simultaneously enjoying a couple of beers with friends. Check them out on Facebook!
