Local bar-rock band The Hed Shop Boys recently welcomed a new member to the lineup. Lead singer/guitarist Frank Royster, bassist/singer Julian Volpe, and drummer Tommy Capo officially enlisted lead guitarist and backing vocalist Robert Siekawitch (formerly of S’Witch and The Oasis Band). Siekawitch replaced longtime guitarist Bryn Wilson, and original member of the band.

Royster says the band has already worked up a new set of classic rock and power-pop, including some more elaborate "showcase" tunes. The Hed Shop Boys perform at Wet Willie’s on Sat. June 12, and in Summerville at the Strike Zone on Sat. June 19.
