Hard rocking Harvey Headbanger has been tearing up the Cedar Rapids and Eastern Iowa music scene since Friday, July 13, 2007. "The idea for the band name originally came from a dream I had that I was at a show and I saw myself in a band called Harvey Headbanger. Everyone in the room was calling me Harvey," recalls Harvey.
    When asked about the band's live shows, Harvey stated, "I can’t stand still on stage. The music makes me move. The rest of the guys don’t just stand there and play either. Nobody wants to go see a band stand there looking bored. That’s why most people say they are going to “see” a band, not “hear” a band. The energy we create gets the crowd going, which then gets us pumped up even more. We feed off the crowd, and then they do the same from us."

Lives to rock, and rocks to live. No other form of existence satisfies this guy. Whether it’s a 70’s re-make, a new cover hit, or an original masterpiece, he plays with the same enthusiasm. Harv knows that he's hearing a great song when goose bumps appear all over his body. If the adrenalin that his body manufactures for a show could be tapped, the world's energy problems would be solved. This man cannot stand still on stage.

Harv plays Les Paul guitars exclusively, amplified through Marshall and Line 6 power.
Rich "Free" Bryan :
When I'm playing music I'm in heaven. It completely Free s my soul. Hence I am Free. Any guitar will do. Hand me a guitar and I will make it sound as good as it possibly can. I use a variety of different guitars...doesn't matter. Bugera and Vox amps are my sound at the moment...but definately nothing exclusive.
