Local rockers the Phonocaptors were once a beloved Midwestern treasure, a band revered for dynamic live shows and for songs built on vibrant, fuzzy guitars. The trio created three albums full of powerful, juicy rock & roll candy — thanks to guitarist/songwriter Jason Hutto’s flashy riffs, Keith Voegele’s weighty bass and the slick drumming of Scott “Scooter” Hermes. The Phonos disbanded in 2004, and since then, its members have found success with other bands, including area favorites the Bottle Rockets, Bunnygrunt, Tight Pants Syndrome and Walkie Talkie U.S.A. However, these experiences have just added to the trio’s many talents — which it’ll reveal once again at this Friday night reunion show. Welcome back, Phonocaptors. We missed you.
