Palooka
Palooka
PALOOKA is big thick two guitar rock the way God intended it. Singer Paul Passarelli belts out melody lines full of emotion and purpose with tenacity. Duffy Delgado and Glen Logan trade flurries of devastating and searing guitar punches reminiscent of a barroom brawl. All of which sits on the rock solid pounding foundation built on the talents of Howard Binner on bass and the percussive mauler Jason Reavis on drums.

PALOOKA brings together musicians who have been haunting the Seattle scene from the pre grunge days (yes there was a pre grunge Seattle music scene) to present. PALOOKA is made up by former members of Overlord, Bible Stud, Boss Martians, History of Thorns, The Chauffeur, Bottle of Smoke, West Section Line, Debutant, Born Naked, Lipstick, October and Kingmother. Paul Passarelli also sings in 70 Proof and for the last decade he has sung for Mike McCready’s Flight to Mars annual Crohn's benefit shows.

Combined with their past projects and experience PALOOKA also sites influences ranging from Elton John and Louis Armstrong to Bowie/Ronson, KISS, Cheap Trick, Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Iggy Pop, The Sex Pistols, The Cult, The Ramones, The Rolling Stones, Motorhead, Judas Priest, Hanoi Rocks, Smack and many more. Topped off by the obvious Evel Knievel hero worship that asserts itself from their younger days as demonstrated by the What’s Wrong With Wanting Everything album cover photo we start to get a glimpse where PALOOKA’s contemporary take on Hard Rock/Alternative music full of honest emotion and grit comes from.
The Thrill
The Thrill
The band has a great sound, sort of a mix between Foo Fighters, Foreigner and Oasis. So, if you like any of those bands, you might just love this one. - Tracy Salsbery, NW Music Scene
Reason to Rebel
Reason to Rebel
Ever since releasing their first album in 2005, the band has made it a point to travel to the farthest reaches of the country in search of new fans and the kind of experiences that stick with you for a lifetime. This work ethic and strive for excellence is what made the band self-release four albums, and drew such accomplished guest musicians as Ikey Owens (The Mars Volta, Jack White) and Brent Hinds (Mastodon) to perform on their recordings. There has always been a deep message attached to the lyrics found on Reason to Rebel's music.
