SOME TYPE OF STEREO hit the road

Local rockers Some Type of Stereo are heading out for their summer tour, hitting nine states that include Colorado, Kansas, Indiana, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C. and North Carolina, where they will reside to record an album for two weeks before heading back to play in California.

Some Type of Stereo is an L.A.-based band composed of John Garside (bass), Evan Matthews (guitar), Michael Szymczyk (drums) and Marco Toledo (vocals). The band plays a mixture of rock, funk, Latin and R&B with just enough flavor for everyone to enjoy. They track all their music live and on tape so they have to be well prepared before they head into the studio.

“We hope this tour gives us more experience and practice before we go to cut the full-length album,” Toledo said.

According to the band, they all play a role in the creation of the eclectic sound.

“The cool thing about this band is that we all take part in helping develop a song,” drummer Syzmczyk said. “A lot of us are multi-instrumentalists so we switch to different instruments sometimes.”

Some Type of Stereo seems to be keen on the fact that music is a universal language and can bring people together.

“We know we aren’t going to please everyone, but it’s about a common connection that people share with the music,” Garside said.

Aside from music, the band has different hobbies that they enjoy, such as sports, reading, being environmentalists and cooking Peruvian Dishes. Just ask Marco when he is available to make you dinner.

As for Matthews, he enjoys breaking couches — the quiet ones are usually the most trouble!
