The Peak Show
(1999 – 2005)

…was my first major musical project.  We were signed to Atlantic Records.  We had numerous licenses to TV & Film, and we still occasionally land those placements to this day.

We made a f-ing great album that was never wholly released.  It was written by The Peak Show, produced by Gabriel “Front Row” Rowland & Mario Caldato, Jr. (yup, *that* Mario C. of Beastie Boys production fame), and mixed in Virginia Beach by Grammy winning mixer, Serban Ghenea.

You can listen to it here for the first time in its entirety.
Just use the controls to fast forward to the next song. All 13 are there. This album is not available anywhere else in the whole wide world!! Enjoy, homies.

We were a rowdy bunch. We were known for our wild house parties, balls-to-the-walls shows, totally modern dance / rock music, and guerilla promotional antics – like performing at Coachella 2 years in a row (4 shows total) completely uninvited. Here’s a video of that…

The Peak Show was:

Gabriel “Front Row” Rowland – catalyst / drums / programming / wildstyle
Derock Goodwin – guitars / guns / driving
Holland Greco – vocals / lyrics / xfactor
Alex Painter – bass / samples / fortitude

other members:
Megan Jacobs – keys, backup vocals, & angelic presence 2003 – 2005
Chris Gongora – original bass player 1999 -2000
Ceci Bastida – keys & background vocals 2002 & maybe some of 2003
