"Baloney Ponyz”, the self- titled debut CD, was released in July 2003. While recording in 2002, all the chips kept falling in the right place for the band. Sticking to their guns for almost a decade, the band is finally getting the respect they deserve for being the country’s best, most authentic, "hair/ hard rock" band.
Over the years, the Baloney Ponyz has opened for the best in the hard rock world, including Ratt, Vince Niel, Cinderella, Warrant, Slaughter, Sebastian Bach, Quiot Riot, Dio and many others. Two thousand and two also brought opening slots at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, once for the Poison summer tour, as well as for the Tesla "Rock Never Stops" tour. The single "Get Off" made an appearance on 98.9 the Rock's "New Rock Rumble", lasting for several days until a close battle with P.O.D.'s "Satellite".
All of the Baloney Ponyz have been in other highly successful projects. In addition, the Ponyz front man, Curtis Anderson, continues to dominate live music in Kansas City with 'Disco Dick', a retro/dance band that commands large crowds and big dollars. He's also known as the hardest working man in the business, in prime condition, with the vocal ability to sing almost anything.
On bass guitar, Doug Kenworthy gave birth to Motherload and Load Point Pull, both of which received airplay and show dates in many large markets. No one tops Kenworthy's "in your face" bass attack, somewhere between Gene Simmons and Nikki Sixx. He is also known as the guru of hard disk recording, serving as chief engineer and mastering their own CD.
Glen Bridger on guitar is a legend in the mid west bar circuit. His first band 'Faze One' was a notorious hard rockin’ bar band. Bridger was eventually not allowed to enter guitar competitions because no other contestants would enter, knowing they would lose. He is a master guitar player with an endless supply of riffs.
Tommy St. John, known as one of the hardest rocking drummers around, dates back with Anderson to the Sunset Strip days in L.A. when they were barely out of high school, passing out flyers, trying to make their way into a scene that would soon die out. Shortly after that, St. John was with Columbia’s ‘Sacrifice Issiac' right before teaming back up with Anderson in the early nineties.
The Baloney Ponyz band members have no attitudes, drug problems or egos. Just four guys with incredible ability, experience, and drive to do what it takes to sell a few million units.....Let's do it!!!!!!!
