Carousel has been a mainstay of the Pittsburgh rock scene since their very first show in 2011, sharing the stage with a wide array of rock, metal and punk bands, all the while demonstrating an earth-shaking ability to rock with each and every live performance. The band's music incorporates many elements, most notably the harmonized guitar lines of Thin Lizzy, the bombast of Mountain and the rhythmic propulsion of Diamond Head, Motorhead and other bands whose names include the word "head." With Carousel's strong pedigree, instantly memorable two-guitar harmonized lines (not so much like Iron Maiden, more like Wishbone Ash or Thin Lizzy) and rhythmic swing, the band can easily hold the interest of both punk and metal fans, but add in the charismatic vocals of superstar frontman Dave Wheeler, and it also fits right in at a local rock 'n' roll bar. The band's name is drawn from the futuristic sci-fi movie Logan's Run and the device in the film that terminates young citizens once they reach the ripe age of 30.
