About SWIRL:

Started by brothers -and they are related too-Duane “DT” Jones on lead guitar and Brian “Bam Bam” Jones on the drums. Lead singer Al Ramirez and bassist Shane Carlson complete the relocated, re-tooled Swirl line up! Swirl left the studio with 2 new tracks “Adrenaline” and “Sleepwalker” in May 2008 (which feature Cinderella drummer Fred Coury playing on, producing, co- writing and mixing) to add to the tracks previously produced by both former Quiet Riot/ current Ratt co-lead guitarist Carlos Cavazo and ex-Rough Cutt bassist Matt Thorr. Swirl’s blending of classic metal influences, modern style production, writing, recording techniques and high energy live show is getting the band a lot of attention in a very short time.


Story & Interview by Anne Shiever:  I’ve had the great pleasure of hearing these guys play in Kansas City at the Riot Room in December of 2008.  They also recently visited The BLUE GOAT of our hometown in Salina KS among other great venues in the Kansas area.  Now that the tour with Ratt is completely underway, we look forward to seeing them and hearing them play live again.  A band you truly won’t want to miss, as they step from the ground floor gracefully climbing their way to the top through the support of their great fans!
