With members of Satan’s Pilgrims, Big Elf, Paradise and Crackerbash, The Pynnacles are immersed in Portland music history (as well as this programs'--Scott and Sean Pynnacle were in the first local band to perform on the show, back when it was called "Love City"), Crackerbash, back in 1990.
Drawing inspiration from (and sometimes covering) mid-sixties garage punk, The Pynnacles are steeped in the retro sound of those bands, but bring a modern attack informed by the decades since that raises The Pynnacles from mere revial to full-on revoultion! The members may have more countable rings in their trunks than most of the current hordes of bands that scrape for PDX stage time, but you'd never know it by attending one of their performances...The Pynnacles out-play, out-jump, out-joust and out-rock any preconcieved notions about musicians and age.
This is the sound of energy, the sound of vitality, the sound of fun!
