About

AGAPITO formed in early 2016 after Mike Peters (Cancer Bats, Julie and The Wrong Guys) accompanied long-time friend, Jim Agapito, to a Tuesday karaoke night at the Handsome Daughter. What Peters, and the rest of the crowd witnessed, was Agapito belting out tunes with a distinct bravado and stage swagger. Peters, who already knew Agapito’s love of karaoke, thought Jim should be singing his own tunes in a band. Agapito, who works closely with bands as a music video director and grew up in the local punk/hardcore scene, was contemplating of starting a band with guitarist Ryan Nash (Union Stockyards, One Of These Days) and wanted to ask Peters about playing with them.  Peters agreed and asked long time musician friend Jordan McConnell (The Duhks) about playing bass guitar (although McConnell has never played bass ever). Fate brought everyone together. 

That’s how AGAPITO was formed. Each member comes from a very distinct background in music. AGAPITO combines influences from 90s hardcore punk, the intensity of rock n’ roll and the grooviness of funk to create a sound that’s distinct and unique.
