Checkerneck is an alternative rock band that borrows elements of grunge, punk, garage and hard rock. Growing up as childhood friends in Malibu California, Holden Woodward (Drums, vocals) and Andrew Greenup (Vocals, guitar), began writing and playing music at the age of 13.
Years later they would meet Chris Cola (Bass) and Jesus Contreras (Guitar), who both grew up in Santa Monica, California. Together they formed Checkerneck in 2016. As a band, they strive to be as creative as possible and to stray away from the mainstream sound. They make use of fast transitions, tempo changes, raw energy and unique structure in their songs, writing and performing music that touches upon many different genres. Checkerneck has been playing shows all over the Los Angeles area, building strong momentum behind them, and a ton of buzz. With a full tank of energy and passion to give, they are definitely a band on the rise!<br>
