Massachusetts, But Louder.

Tom Pappalardo: guitar & vocals
Sturgis Cunningham: drums and backing vocals

Tom & Sturg met at Turn It Up! CDs in the late ’90s and briefly played together in The No-Shadow Kick. We started The Dem in 2009 because we both wanted to play really loud and hard. We performed as a guitar/drum duo for a whole decade and then someone was like hey what about bass and we were like whaaaat no waaaay so I guess we’re a trio now sometimes?

The Demographic plays western Mass. shows very infrequently because we’re busy and Tom hates carrying his amp. So if you see a gig posted you jump on that shit.

We’ve released two EPs: Verse Chorus Curse and Listen Close.
