The members of Hastings have cut their teeth in the harsh reality of the Buffalo music scene.

Mike Conley is the hard rocking backbone of the band. Mike''s guitar work gives Hastings a contemporary sound with a distinct bite. His knowledge of music is highlighted throughout the groups'' latest work.
Shane Davis is a driving bass player with an amazing presence on stage. His bass playing stabilizes the band giving the guitarists a platform to breathe life into the songs.
Kevin Walgate is the heartbeat of the band. Kevin has the ability to read whatever the band members want to do at any given time. A drumming powerhouse, Kevin provides the energy needed to drive the machine.
Fans of classic masters like CCR, the Rolling Stones or contemporary bands 3 Doors Down, Creed or Nickelback, will really sink their teeth into this CD.
If ever there was a time that the music industry needed the bite of reality. That time is now!
Hastings is the complete package.
