The Skallywags
The Skallywags Band logo.

Meeting in high school, at an early age the group shared their love of music and talent. Following high school, Kristine Spielmann and the band formerly known as “Strange on Display,” quickly became a favorite at the local bar scene in the Greater Cincinnati area. The summer of 2009 they lost their drummer, Matt “Skinny,” McIntosh to the H1N1 virus. So the band decided to make a fresh start and rename the group "The Skallywag’s".

The Skallywags consist of four very multifaceted and multitalented musicians. They put on an entertaining array of musical genres, and the impressive powerful vocals of Kristine Spielmann, has a way of engulfing so much power and attitude that truly makes any song she sings, that of her own. But Kristine is not the only one whose voice fills the room. Mike Dittmer and James Wentstrup also share in on the vocals, along with their spectalular guitar playing skills. The Skallywags are a melodic collaboration that manifests passion into beautiful, compelling live performances.
