  Voted 2021 Best Alternative Rock Band and Best Male Vocalist at the Central Pennsylvania Music Awards.


  Observe the 93rd is an alternative rock band from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.  It's comprised of vocalist/guitarist Derek Henry and drummer Dylan Zepp.  


  The focus will always be raw, authentic expression.  The songs are guided by a feeling, an idea, an experience, failure, triumph, suffering, joy...any abstract internal entity that yearns to be externalized.  Sometimes the expression of this is a means of reflection, sometimes a means of relief and survival, and other times merely an exploration of the mind or ideas. 


  We've played shows with: Foxy Shazam, Fuel, Three Days Grace, Stone Temple Pilots, Seether, Puddle of Mudd, Otherwise, Flyleaf, Lacey Sturm, Cold, Sponge, Drowning Pool, Saliva, Joyous Wolf, From Ashes to New, P.O.D., Icon For Hire, Conquer Divide, The Funeral Portrait, Rivals  

  We've played in: Central Pennsylvania . Philadelphia, Pennsylvania . Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania . Nashville, Tennessee . New York City, New York . Baltimore, Maryland . Ocean City, Maryland . Charlotte, North Carolina . Atlanta, Georgia . Birmingham, Alabama .  Columbus, Ohio . Orlando, Florida .  Louisville, Kentucky
