Canada’s tribute to the Stone Temple Pilots.

Delivering the goods for everyone from the casual fan to the devoted. We aim to please and that’s just what we do.
Kenny Cunningham AS Robert Deleo
Kenny has performed and recorded with artists such as Edwin (I Mother Earth/Crash Karma), Susan Aglukarand, and Spookey Ruben. He studied music at Etobicoke School Of The Arts, York University, and was taught by the artist Peter DeSotto (Quartetto Gelato). Kenny primarily plays bass but is formally trained on guitar, violin, viola, and piano. He also studied Recorded Music Production at Trebas Institute. He is a musical juggernaut.
Aryn Powell AS Scott Weiland
Self-taught Canadian musician who is best known for his 90s passion project, TROVE. Between 2012 - 2013, Powell wrote, performed, recorded, mixed, and produced what would eventually become the 10 track debut album – TROVE. Powell has been writing and recording songs for the next TROVE album, which he hopes to release in 2018. His main influences are mostly 90s bands (Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, STP, Silverchair, Incubus). However, it was The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and The Police that triggered his musical creativity at a young age. He became fascinated and obsessed with guitar, and songwriting. Singing was never something Powell saw himself doing in the big picture, but over the years it has become his new obsession. “I will always be a huge fan of Scott, and STP. I remember getting the album Purple on cassette back in 1994, and it absolutely blew my mind. I think it was the first time I had ever listened to an album track-for-track, 3 times in a row. Scott’s voice was perfect. I’ve learned a lot from him over the years.”
Carmine Mallia AS Eric Kretz
Carmine Mallia is a Canadian drummer born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Proceeding from generations of drummers including his grandfather Carmelo Mallia and his father Angel Marr (Canadian musician/ singer songwriter) gave him his first lessons as soon as he could hold the drum sticks.Influenced by his father and bands he grew up listening to like KISS, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Guns n Roses, Green Day, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, etc. played a major part in forming him into a hard hitting groovy drummer with natural feel.His first punk based band Sandstone was formed in the late 90's and got to play various venues in Toronto including the iconic elmocambo at an early age. In the early 2000's he collaborated with two Canadian guitar players to form a hard rock band Easy Sleezy. As they gained notice very quickly in Toronto they were asked to record at Sony/BMG and did, but didn't continue due to disagreements. In 2007 he joined an upcoming Toronto band Toy Box who was releasing their first album "the assassination of" in HMV's all across Canada and went on to do a Canadian tour with also Canadian band Flatlined. He currently plays in a original pop/punk outfit DeadHawk FM.
