History

Animal Grace is a hard rock original/cover band based out of Springfield, Ohio. The band was which formed in early 1988 by guitarist and lead vocalist Tony Powell. Over the past twenty five+ years the band has undergone several member changes but has always remained committed to quality Rock & Roll. The band attributes its longevity to remaining diverse and creative, and having a deep desire to entertain.

Animal Grace has performed throughout the midwest, including clubs in Michigan, Kentucky, Illinios, Indiana, and most of Ohio. Their live performances are based on superb musicianship, focused intensity and a hunger to please the crowd.

Animal Grace original music, over the years, has been played on local radio stations in the Dayton area such as WXEG 103.9 "THE X" and WWSU 106.9 Wright St. University as well as the now defunct WINGFMís (102.9FM) Local Music show and special Christmas edition. The band's music has generated quite an interest stateside and abroad. We have had inquiries as far away as Holland, Sweden, Wales, Norway, Denmark, and Italy. Our music in its early creation, had received radio airplay on WING (formerly WAZU) 102.9 FM in Dayton, Ohio, WYSO 91.3 FM in Fairborn, Ohio, and several college stations in the southwestern Ohio region.
