Jeri Sapronetti of  Time Cat

Jeri Sapronetti of Time Cat

May 20, 2020

Jeri Sapronetti is a Akron based singer/Song writer, who fronts the band Time Cat.

Time Cat formed as a 2-piece rock band in 2011 by guitarist/singer Jeri Sapronetti and drummer Sam Caler after they met at the legendary "Jam Nite" hosted by Sapronetti in their mutual hometown, Akron, Ohio. They went on to record their first full-length album "Your City" and toured across the country multiple times on self-booked tours, having lots of crazy adventures with wild Americans.
Upon returning from a 30-city tour in 2014, luck would bring multi-instrumentalist Colten Huffman on bass, which brought much needed depth to the duo's raw sound. In late 2018, with no discussion whatsoever, guitarist Donald Alan (The Tenants, Blond Boy Grunt and The Groans) began jamming with the trio adding a new dynamic with incendiary licks and inter-weaving rhythms.
With an ever developing sound, Time Cat has become one of Northeast Ohio's premier rock bands. With influences like Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, and Jefferson Airplane, listeners are quickly immersed in a world that is familiar, yet completely new. In their time, they've had the incredible privilege of opening for the likes of Chrissie Hynde & The Pretenders, Juliette Lewis, Muse, AFI, and Fantastic Negrito.
Jeri, Talks philosophy, music , green tea, Time Cat,  the COVID-19 Out break, Bad dogs, butts, and Bob Dylan
 Jeri's Next show is Friday on Virtual Shows CLE 8pm May 22

Eliy Orcko

Former skate punk Eliy Orcko was born in a small town west of Cleveland, OH. His family relocated to South Florida where he spent a majority of his formative years. His first outlet in music started out in the punk scene in South Florida that quickly pushed him into the hardcore & post hardcore genre as he developed. Eliy constantly expresses he had no interest of being anything until recently, finding much of himself in his current years rapping after a long time of “bumming” around the west coast and coming back to Ohio to collect himself. Eliy’s music is a mixture of Hiphop, Soul, Jazz, Indie, Punk, and Folk pulling from influences like Mos Def to Bon Iver, Jeff Rosenstock, Kid Cudi, The Ink Spots, Kanye West and BloodStone. Allot of vocal melodies shine in Eliy’s music that gives him a different sound than most artist in the “Hiphop” genre, really giving him a sound of his own to hone in on while still using the classic boom bap format. Eliy is a very versatile artist with allot of content, and creativity willing to explore new sounds & mediums to grow and develop as an over all artist.



Eliy talks, his new album Party with my demons, The start of the COVID-19 out break, tours, video game development , his musical journey, and the importance of self belief !


Eliy has a new EP coming out  on Band camp May-8th -2020 and it will be on everything else May-15th -2020
