About the Band
Apollo 66 are a 4-piece based in Washington, DC/Silver Spring, MD. They recently released their second EP, "We Could Be Gone," in September 2022.
Born of the local garage rock scene, they have released a number of bootleg style recordings of their live shows on Bandcamp and released their first self-titled 5-song EP in early 2021. While at their core, they remain a garage rock band, their song writing has evolved with influences ranging from the Beatles to the Cramps. They have performed at a number nightclubs in the MidAtlantic and outdoor venues including Fort Reno Park in Washington, DC in 2017, HampdenFest (Baltimore, MD) in 2019 and most recently Honfest (Baltimore, MD) in 2022.
Apollo 66 hosts a monthly garage punk rock night with other local and touring bands in Silver Spring, MD. Their music has been featured on college, internet, and community radio stations in the Washington, DC area, New York, California, Massachusetts, and Florida, among other places. In April 2021 they performed and recorded a live 4-song set for The Rodent Hour sessions with Matt Attack on Radio Free Brooklyn (New York).
Apollo 66 are Travis Hodges (Guitar/Vocals), Alex Morse (Guitar/Vocals), Shawn Henderson (Drums), Jeremy Markowitz (Drums) and Kris Andtell (Tambourine).
