Biography

Sandlot Heroes is a three-piece pop/rock band from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania that consists of lead singer Dan Kastelnik, lead guitar Chris Morrison and drummer Ans Gibson. Kastelnik formed the band in 2005 with his brother and a friend, deriving the band’s name from his backyard football league. Ans Gibson joined the band in 2009, replacing his older brother as drummer. After a year of searching for an ideal third member, the band discovered guitar player Chris Morrison in response to a simple Craigslist advertisement. The band has been creating songs nonstop ever since the three musicians were united, achieving extraordinary radio success for an unsigned band.

It was the band’s three-and-a-half minute nugget of pop rock simply titled “So” that first caught the attention of B104, the biggest radio station in the band’s native Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania.
Immediately after the station debuted the song on its nightly top ten countdown, its phone lines were stormed by listeners feverishly requesting the track. The song swiftly hit number one on the countdown and assumed that position for an unprecedented five weeks straight. The past year has welcomed two more incredibly successful singles from the band: “Out Of My Hands,” the first single from the band’s debut album Pretend That We’re Famous, and a full-band version of the album’s acoustic track “Believer.
