Started as a way to have a little fun and play some Rock n Roll, Small Time Rock Stars took on a life of it's own.  With 3 of the members of Sixwire, Steve Mandile on guitar and vocals, John Howard on bass and vocals and Chuck Tilley on drums and vocals, the lines are fairly blurred on where Sixwire stops and Small Time Rock Stars begin.  Where Sixwire is a vocal band with it's roots on the rock side of Country, Small Time Rock Stars live in the 70's. 80's and 90's rock world. 

Small Time Rock Stars do still play events when they're not doing shows with Sixwire.  But they can be seen most of the time as the house band for the Nashville Predators hockey games. 

The pictures show a few of the amazing guest artists that join the band from time to time.
