he Inventors formed in fall of 2014, calling Chicago, IL home and still continue to grow from our genuine joy of creating and playing music. Taking influence from every genre in the spectrum we find it hard sometimes to categorize our sound. We know we like to play live, and we know we like to play loud, after that it gets a little fuzzy. The Inventors have been working hard at writing, playing, and performing their music for anyone who is willing to take a listen. Punk, Indie, Rock, Folk, they do it all. As a 4 piece, the lineup is simple, though the energy isn't. Joe Mango sings and plays guitar a little, Ray Skamay plays a lot more guitar, Nick Kieta shares the bass with no one and everyone is scared to approach Grant Ossler while he drums. The Inventors started as a group of old friends. Joe, Nick and Ray. They grew up in a small Indiana town, so, of course, they were bored. They started a band. Years later they got a little better, met Grant and the rest was history. In early 2015 The Inventors released their first EP "The Procedure Room".Since its release The Inventors have been playing The Chicago land area, making an occasional trip here and there. Drawing from influences such as The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen and Foo Fighters just as much as System of a Down, Fugazi and Everytime I Die. The Inventors live to play. So, if you let them play, you will not regret it.
