Up Your Alley Band is a local Utah band with musicians from 80’s Salt Lake bands Equinox and First Strike as well as 90’s Utah county band Exit 282.
They all grew up in the 80’s and a lot of their music reflects that with some major musical influences being Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Kiss, Whitesnake, Queensryche and Ozzy Osbourne among many others. Their philosophy is make music that you like and hopefully other people will like it too.
Up Your Alley was formed in 1991 and only played 2 shows together before disbanding. In 2001, the singer moved to Florida for 13 years. Luckily, the other band members kept in contact and kept playing and writing new music together until the singer returned to Utah in 2014.
From the first rehearsal, it was immediately apparent that the magic was still there. Up Your Alley’s first album is titled Unfinished Business and the title track reflects how the singer felt in those years away from his fellow band mates and how important it was for him to eventually get back home and make music with them again hence the feeling of “Unfinished Business”.
