Formed in 2019 and named after the Douglas Adams’ favorite novel of founding vocalist/guitarist Ted Felicetti, Don’t Panic began as an endeavor where making genuine, fun rock and roll music came first and everything else second. Joining Ted were Keith Slader (bass), AJ Larsen (guitar), and Anthony Paesano (drums). Based out of the Poconos in Northeast Pennsylvania the band quickly began recording their debut full length album ‘See Through it All’ which was self released on Nov 27th, 2020 and followed by tour dates supporting bands like Bowling for Soup, Face to Face, and Bigwig. After a year of the world being locked at home Don’t Panic is now releasing their follow up and second full length album, ‘Dark Horse’ on Sept 3rd, 2021 which draws heavily on the bands combined influences including Foo Fighters, Bayside, Lit, White Reaper, Motion City Soundtrack, Millencolin, Face to Face and many others.

Keep Flying is a 5 piece band hailing from the Northeast USA. With their musical style, the band strives to fill the void of catchy, horn driven songs in the punk scene. With a unique sound, honest songwriting, and an explosive live show, the band has been able to turn heads of fans and bands alike, touring and performing with such acts as State Champs, Four Year Strong, Less Than Jake as well as multiple appearances on the Vans Warped Tour, SXSW, The FEST, and many more.

“At the end of the day all I know is that I want to play rock and roll” professes Don’t Panic front man Ted Felicetti. After almost a decade of touring, recording and releasing albums with previous bands, Ted has taken the role of front man joined by former band mate, long time friend and bassist Keith Slader, guitarist Rob Felicetti, and drummer Zhach Kelsh. Ted says of the music “I wanted to do something I have never done before. A straight forward rock and roll band uncompromised with the concerns of being commercially viable with a focus on just making great music.” Don’t Panic draws heavily from influences ranging from Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age and the Toadies while staying true to classic rock roots such as Tom Petty and the Eagles. The bands debut EP “My Fair-weather Friend” was released via Masquerade/Warner in Jan 2010 with two follow up singles entitled “Why the Fifties Were Better..” in October 2010. The releases were followed by a heavy touring schedule supporting bands such as The Ataris, TRUST Company and Gasoline Heart. The band is currently scheduled to release their second EP "The Fix" on October 11th followed by more touring across the US
