Cönaxx was formed in the summer of 2016 in Lafayette, CO by Anthony Manzanares and previous drummer, Rory Andresky. Forging heavy vibrations from the get-go, it was a must that other members join the band and fill out the sound. Alec Smith was rockin’ some local karaoke at a now closed down dive bar when he was found. Alec heard what the band had written, was given some words to sing, and without hesitation stepped up to take lead vocals. The three set forth and started playing gigs without a bassist for the time had come for the band to perform the music and be heard. A lot of gigs were played without bass, untill Kenny Karsten heard the tracks that Anthony handed to him one day at work. After Kenny heard the songs, he jumped right in the mix and became the band’s bassist. Since Kenny’s arrival, Cönaxx has played countless gigs throughout Colorado always aiming a MILE HIGH and playing loud and groovy. In late 2018, the band underwent a line-up change welcoming in Dylan Montoya on drums. Cönaxx aims to reach to new levels of musical expression while always holding on to their heavy, groovy and funky roots.
