Superfive features veteran Philadelphia area musicians and longtime friends who play their own brand of original, guitar driven, hook laden, power pop. Though the members have played with each other in various bands over the years, this is the first time these four have played together.
superfive began in 2008 and re-emerged onto the music scene playing clubs in Philadelphia and New Jersey including the Legendary Dobbs, Milkboy, World Café Live, Puck, Bullshooters, Triumph Brewing and Small World Coffee in Princeton. Their live shows are fueled by their punk rock roots, but refined with a maturity from years of performing on the scene, and together as musicians.
The band’s debut CD was released in March 2012 to many positive reviews. Listen or purchase at: as well as iTunes, CD Baby and
The long awaited follow up “Pleaser” will be released in November of this year and is the culmination of over 2 years of work. Look for plenty of shows in support of this into 2017.
superfive features:
Michael McLaughlin, guitarist & songwriter (The Conrads, The Turncoats)
Tom Szwech, bass (Hogan’s Goat, Tonewreck, Chris and Tommy’s Good Time Show)
Brett Tomlinson, lead guitarist (Turncoats)
Doug Szwech, drummer (The Conrads, Tonewreck, Faraway Guys)
Super Bonanza
Formed in 2012 by two-string bassist/vocalist Joe Oxman, Super Bonanza combines influences including Iggy Pop, X, Morphine and Yo la Tengo. Super Bonanza brings range and dynamics that only years of “one-nighter” van tours can make.

In the 80s, Joe Oxman was a member of the post-punk alternative band Red Herring from Philadelphia which produced one “balls out” record for Skyclad/Get Hip records entitled STIFFY.

After the break-up of Red Herring, Oxman split for Los Angeles in 1992 forming the jazz/funk/punk collective Freeway Planet which released four CDs on Los Angeles based Prophecy Records and steadily toured nationally for 10 years until the act ran out of steam in 2004.

Baritone sax player Doug Dubrosky, came to Super Bonanza as the founder, leader, tenor sax player and vocalist for the ska and reggae bands Ruder Than You and Rock Steady. Doug is also known in the Philly area as reggae DJ Ruder1.

Veteran drummer and producer Tony Flagiello, a.k.a. "Tony Catastrophe", has been on the Philadelphia music scene for the last thirteen years. He made his presence known in the late 90's with the popular funk-hip-hop band Fathead.

Keyboard Player Dave Oxman, the other Oxman brother, brings his soulful organ and piano playing to the band which rounds out the Super Bonanza sound.
