Local band returns to Tiffin for show
A local Tiffin band is scheduled to perform this weekend, the first time playing in town in years.
Tinfoil has been on the area music scene for more than 20 years. Formed in 1993 in Tiffin, Tinfoil performs guitar-based rock with some tendencies toward punk and blues.
Dave Harms and Cher Bibler of Tinfoil have remained and have worked together on 20 different releases. Rick Waggoner also performs in Tinfoil on guitar.
Harms has been a member in other bands including Cellar, the Mongrels, Blazon City, Za-Who-Rox, Puss, D&R, Shortbus, Old School, Tinsel and the Guitar Guys.
Harms also is a member of the Toledo-area band Angola Road, which came from the 1980s heavy metal band Damien.
Damien had a record contract and had their videos shown on MTV.
Angola Road was formed in 2012 and released its self-titled EP that same year, with a full-length album in 2015.
Angola Road is comprised of Johnny Cappelletty on drums, Harms and Jay Shrodek on guitar, Andy Kunkel on bass and Scott Miller on vocals. They have opened for national acts including Buck Cherry, My Darkest Days, Black Stone Cherry, Saving Able, Tesla, Tom Kiefer, Blackfoot and Scott Stapp.
“For us, this is a reunion of sorts, Tinfoil opening for Angola Road — which evolved from Damien,” Bibler said.
Bibler said they knew Damien in the ’90s when they would open for them in Detroit and Toledo.
The bands, Tinfoil and Angola Road, are to preform at the Viaduct at 9 p.m. Saturday.
“This is gonna be a cool show,” Harms said.
Harms said Tinfoil had played at the Viaduct, when it was known by other names, early on.
“They have a great stage and atmosphere,” he said.
“We want to bring rock ‘n’ roll music back into the forefront,” Miller said. “It will be a party in Tiffin Saturday night.”
Angola Road is working on a new release and Tinfoil released a new album in 2017.
