Andrew Lauzon AS Robert Deleo

He has played with Grammy-nominated punk/metal/comedy icons Green Jello, Canadian alt-rock supergroup Crash Karma, Indian Idol star Rajdeep Chatterjee and shared bills with international touring acts such as Three Days Grace, Billy Talent, Killswitch Engage, Bad Religion and Coheed and Cambria.
“I was very excited at the prospect of doing an STP tribute” he says. I've been a fan of the band since day 1, but had never really delved into Robert DeLeo's bass lines. His playing is intricate but tasteful, and it always serves the song. I looked at this as a great chance to learn the style of one of rock's greatest and most underrated bass players.”
Carmine Mallia AS Eric Kretz
Carmine Mallia is a Canadian drummer born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Proceeding from generations of drummers including his grandfather Carmelo Mallia and his father Angel Marr (Canadian musician/ singer songwriter) gave him his first lessons as soon as he could hold the drum sticks.
Influenced by his father and bands he grew up listening to like KISS, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Guns n Roses, Green Day, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, etc. played a major part in forming him into a hard hitting groovy drummer with natural feel.
His first punk based band Sandstone was formed in the late 90's and got to play various venues in Toronto including the iconic elmocambo at an early age. In the early 2000's he collaborated with two Canadian guitar players to form a hard rock band Easy Sleezy. As they gained notice very quickly in Toronto they were asked to record at Sony/BMG and did, but didn't continue due to disagreements. In 2007 he joined an upcoming Toronto band Toy Box who was releasing their first album "the assassination of" in HMV all across Canada and went on to do a Canadian tour with also Canadian band Flatlined.
Carmine also does session work, records and performs with other Canadian artists such as Arron Reed, Dr.Lang, Radio Sound, Delivery Men and the Day Olds.
