Category IV has what it takes to be a national contender with one of Ohio’s most talented guitarist, a monster entertainer, a rock-solid drummer and a ground-pounding Bassist making this band mentioned by many as being nothing short of “Rock and Roll Ear Candy”. These guys are extremely talented!!!
