In the world of law enforcement, a “Signal 13” code is issued when a police officer has an emergency and needs backup. To the band - whose members have had careers in law enforcement, emergency services and the military, and have many friend and family relationships in the law enforcement, first-responder and military communities - the name of the band is a tribute to all of those who choose to bravely and unselfishly protect and serve.
Musically, the band has seen a current generation of music which has drifted from the basic roots of rock and roll. Rock and roll - with all the attitude, swagger and energy surrounding it - may not be currently topping the popular music charts… but as long as people love to hear real music, by real musicians, with a real beat, with real instruments, making the ground shake - rock and roll won’t go away. Signal 13 is our effort to help keep rock and roll alive. It is our call to all those who love this music to come on out and celebrate it with us – hard and heavy and loud and proud! Come join us – let’s keep rock alive!
