“Spinning Jenny was formed in 2011 after playing their first gig at a family reunion. Thanks to the kindness of John DiCarlo, frontman of the U.S. Kids, Spinning Jenny was then asked to open for the U.S. Kids at a benefit show held in Steubenville, Ohio. That became not only their first public gig, but the launchpad of nearly three years of playing and making music. Spinning Jenny is proud to say they are a family, with the group consisting of Dr. John Balzano and his three daughters, Julia (18), Talia (15) and Angelina (13). Dr. Balzano passed on his musicianship and love of music, particularly rock-and-roll, to his three daughters from an early age. Before long, the girls learned how to play guitar, drums, bass and keys, and that foundation led them to officially starting Spinning Jenny. During their live shows, audiences can expect to hear a wide variety of music genres — including old-school rock-and-roll, the latest hits on the radio and alternative rock hits — ensuring that there’s something for every age to enjoy.”

Spinning Jenny is a a Mingo Junction, OH based alt rock band made of of three sisters and their Dad. They recently released their latest EP entitled Weightless and are playing a handful of dates in August, including this Saturday (8/6) in Sharon, PA at the Bavarian Fun Fest. I want to thank Julia Balzano (Guitar/Vocals), Talia Balzano (Drums/Vocals), and Angelina Balzano (Bass/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, gals. It is really great to see you rocking out at so young of an age. I say this because I cannot wait to see where you go with your career and hopefully be seeing you for years and years to come.
