Who we are...

     Hailing from the commonwealth of Virginia, specifically Fairfax, Thirteen Towers formed in 2007 with the uniting of Edson Hinostroza (Bass) and Mike Yaary (Drums). The original line up featured a classic pop punk sound until 2011 when the decision to add horns turned them into a ska/punk band. Since then, they've released two full-length albums and two EP's; latest of which being "Two-Banana Habit" in 2018. Thirteen Towers has had the pleasure sharing stages with many great acts at Festivals such as Punk Island, International Supernova SkaFest, and has hosted the Metro Area Ska and Punk Fest in "Hell's Bottom" twice!

         Thirteen Towers continues to play around the Washington D.C. metro area as often as possible. For booking, please reach out to booking@thirteentowers.com

DAVE COSTELLO - LEAD VOCALS

Dave started doing music at a very early age, banging pots and pans  in his underwear while screaming at the rainy skies of Baltimore city. His eccentric taste and background in music has led him to travel down many different musical avenues ranging from Jazz, to Punk, Metal, and now; Ska. Known by most to have an Energizer bunny-like personality and drive, his charisma and stage presence are something to behold. He's not too bad to look at either.
