Broadway Calls are a power trio from Rainier, Oregon, which is about one hour north of Portland and has a population of just under 2000 people.
In the tradition of bands like Jawbreaker, Green Day, The Jam and Alkaline Trio, Broadway Calls craft songs that are filled with gritty guitar, breakneck drums, infectious hooks and unforgettable choruses that captivate any ear that gives them two minutes and thirty seconds of a chance.
The band is made up of Ty Vaughn (guitar/vocals), Josh Baird (drums) and Matt Koenig (bass). Adeline Records released the band’s debut self-titled record in early 2008 and they played the Vans Warped Tour all summer! A fall tour with Polar Bear Club and Crime in Stereo followed. Shows with Rancid, Alkaline Trio and Bad Religion rounded out their year.
2009 promises to be a monumental year for Broadway Calls. They will be touring with Alkaline Trio as direct support on their February UK/ European tour and will be going into the studio to track songs for a late summer release on SideOneDummy Records! Stay tuned.
