Lincolnville’s innovative and unique rock band, Deadontime, consists of John Brinton, Sr. from Washington, DC on percussion and lead vocals, Paul Dechene from Charleston, SC on guitar and backing vocals, and Rick “Phatt Bastid” Whitely from Baltimore, MD on bass, keys, and lead vocals. The band performs progressive and traditional rock tunes, and the guys pride themselves on their ability to move seamlessly from the likes of Rush covers to original material to intensified versions of 70’s and 80’s rock classics. As polished as this material may be, the band works hard to maintain a natural energy in their live shows, and according to John, "It's a whole lot of fun to be “Deadontime!" When asked what makes them distinct, the group always answers with references to their time spent working on meticulously matching the music and vocals to the original and covered material. As driving as their instrumentation may be, Deadontime is a serious vocal band who prides themselves in clear precise lead vocals, tight vocal harmonies, and the best quality sound reproduction while at your venue. Balance is the ultimate key in every live situation and the band strives to please its fans with something for everyone. The band's current recording endeavor is titled” Beyond the Hearse”, which includes new originals by John, Paul, and Phatt. The contents of “Beyond the Hearse” are intended to clearly demonstrate the potential to reach out to far wider audiences."
