• AUGUST began in 1978. Founded by John Piette, they recorded and released his the original song, “On My Mind”. The song received extensive airplay in the local markets. Moving on John went to the recording studio as a solo artist and recorded an LP of original songs entitled: “AUGUST, featuring John Piette and Friends”. To support the album’s release, he put together an AUGUST touring band, they became very successful with their original rock genre touring throughout the Mid-Atlantic circuit on National stages. The AUGUST of the 80's saw their concerts grow bigger and they became a regular on the National Circuit performing with acts such as Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush, Johnny VanZant, the B52's and Foghat. They were picked as one of the top 5 bands in the WashingtonDC/Baltimore market and their original, "In The Middle Of The Night", was featured on the WAVA rock stations. In 2009, John Piette established the AUGUST Facebook page. The popularity of the page convinced John to reestablish AUGUST and to record a new album of original music. Several AUGUST alumni returned to record and release "Street Smart" in 2015. The album had great sales and is featured on radio broadcasts around the world. They just released a followup CD titled "AFTER MIDNIGHT", and work is underway for a 40th Anniversary CD which is scheduled to be released later in 2018. AUGUST will also be performing live in 2018. Stay tuned!!!
