Attika 7 and Uproar Festival take stage Saturday at White River Amphitheatre
These days people recognize Evan Seinfeld for many things.
"I’m a guy who puts myself out there, so people stop me in the street everyday for different reasons,” Seinfeld, 44, said.
They recognize him from his role as Jaz Hoyt on the TV show “Oz.”
Or they recognize him for his appearance on the reality TV show “Supergroup” when he lived and formed a band with rock stars such as Ted Nugent, Sebastian Bach, Scott Ian and Jason Bonham.
“Some people go, ‘hey you’re that guy from that reality TV show,” Seinfeld said. “You’re the guy who slapped Sebastian Bach.’”
Sometimes they recognize him from his career as a porn star or his marriages to porn divas Tera Patrick and his current wife Lupe Fuentes.
When he’s recognized for his music career, however, as the frontman for Biohazard or his gig with his new band Attika 7, Seinfeld knows he’s doing something right.
“When somebody says that, it lets me know I’m connecting the dots pretty good,” he said.
This Saturday, Seinfeld and Attika 7 play the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn as part of the multi-band Uproar Festival, featuring Godsmack, Shinedown, Staind and Adelitas Way.
For more than 20 years Seinfeld fronted New York City hardcore band Biohazard.
“I felt like I had taken that band as far as it could go,” he said.
Realizing that he wanted to head in a different direction, Seinfeld left the band, hooked up with motorcycle builder, actor and guitarist Rusty Coones to form Attika 7. The band released its debut album “Blood of My Enemies” on July 31.
“I really wanted to do something that was creatively more satisfying,” he said. “I wanted something a little more melodic and something new, something fresh and exciting. I wanted to do something that was more about my lifestyle today, how I live my life today. Which is riding bikes (motorcycles) with my friends, hot girls, outlaws and bad ass hard rock.
Now, Seinfeld said, he feels like he’s moving forward again, which he said is crucial.
“I’m the kind of person that if I don’t feel like I’m moving or advancing, I feel like I’m moving backwards or falling down a hole,” Seinfeld said. “Now we’re getting to play with such amazing big bands like Godsmack an Shinedown. To be doing something new is exciting for me.”
The Uproar Festival kicks off at the White River Ampitheatre beginning at 1:05 p.m. Saturday.
