PUSHMOWER is a five piece, high energy, full assault rock band based out of Southwest, FL. The band was originally founded as a punk band in 1995 by Greg Pope. Their vast musical influences have helped PUSHMOWER create a sound that is unique and identifiable.
All of the PUSHMOWER music is original and their single “War Machine” has been featured in rotation on WJBX 99.3 in Fort Myers, FL and has received airplay on 105.9 The Buzz in Sarasota, FL, WJRR 101.1 in Orlando, FL and other rock stations nationwide. Their music has also been featured on nationally syndicated rock shows TLP Show, Rock Solid Pressure, The Jay Stone Show on ROCKmetalTALK.com, Jessica Wylde, Kimmi and the Metal Deli, The Soupy Gato, and Localized Interactive Internet Radio. PUSHMOWER has recorded over 50 songs over the years, working with Bieler Bros Records in 2009 on a three-song demo and has returned to the studio in late 2010 to record a new album. The new album is still identifiably PUSHMOWER, but the evolution is clear, the elements that created PUSHMOWER are well preserved but now at a much more advanced level.
They have brought their aggressive rock and hard hitting live performances to venues across Florida, from Jacksonville to Miami. In late 2008, PUSHMOWER won the 99X WJBX Championship competition (best band in SWFL), beating out 15 other bands, for the right to open the 99X-Mas Ball.

The energy in their live shows has earned them the reputation for being an amazing live band.
