About

The Seatbelts originated in Detroit 1977 playing clubs and concerts in and around the Michigan area opening for acts like the Romantics, Destroy All Monsters, Sonics Rendezvous Band. Before long, the band found themselves headlining shows. The group spent some time touring nationally, playing venues such as the venerable Max’s Kansas City in NYC. The group’s first single was produced by none other than former guitarist for the Stooges, Destroy All Monsters, and Dark Carnival, the late Ron Asheton. All good things must come to an end, however, and the band went their separate ways with the dawn of a new decade.

The band reformed in 2010 with original members Greg Upshur, vocals Skid Marx, bass and Tony Bojanic on drums along with later members Derrik Murtaugh and John Waylan. Thirty years older and wiser, the Seatbelts continue to rock!
