MISALIGNED MIND is a three piece rock ensemble based in Pittsburgh, PA. The band is fronted by guitar virtuoso Zack Wiesinger who initially broke into prominence upon winning the Albert King Award at the 2006 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. Shortly after, he toured throughout Europe and the USA as a solo opening act for legendary guitarist Steve Vai on his String Theories tour and was subsequently included on the accompanying DVD and Vinyl releases.
Assuming the guise of a true power trio, MISALIGNED MIND features Zack’s guitar wizardry with the stylized and inventive playing of Jarrod Tracey on bass & vocals and David Katonik’s backbone of rhythm on drums to form Misaligned Mind. With an overall sound that echoes sonic comparisons to many of the classic rock groups of the late sixties, the band also churns out deeply contrasting excursions into their own, original & modern compositions. Prior to their current and concrete form, the band was fortunate enough to record an early and experimental Misaligned Mind album at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, CA with Greg Bisonette (Ringo Starr’s All Star Band). Their shows during these formative years consisted largely of half-original, half-cover material grabbing inspiration all the way from Zappa to James Bond soundtracks to Hendrix and beyond... MISALIGNED MIND still offers tasty random cover selections during their longer performances, but with an ever growing catalog of original material their shows have no problem relying on the strength and creative energy of their own offerings.
