Nowadays, many people provide their undivided attention and appreciation towards various mainstream music artists, while little to no consideration is given towards their struggling local bands. The heavy metal band, All For One, located in rural Vineland, is one of these very bands. All For One has written their own music, traveled, entertained, and most importantly, has had their fair share of cheesesteaks along the way. With killer solos and head banging breakdowns, it’s no wonder why All For One has been playing for two years at venues ranging in locations from Philadelphia to Atlantic City. “Playing for other people is my passion, I want to do it for the rest of my life,” says drummer, Joseph Turchi. On April 11, All For One gets ready for their show at Le Grand Fromage in Atlantic City by getting in a few hours practice, feasting on Wawa, and then heading out for the road.
After arriving to the Le Grand Fromage, All For One went inside to listen to a few sets and consume a few drinks. They later came back outside to hang out amongst themselves and take the usual band photo. All For One is made up of five friends, from left to right is Joseph Turchi, drums, Colby Hemple, lead guitar, Shayne Roxas, vocalist, Kyle Gleissner, guitar, and Ryan LaBaw, bass.

At 11:15 PM, All For One is on stage doing what they do best with the largest crowd of the night. Guitarist, Kyle Gleissner, sums up performing in one word, “adrenalizing.”
As the night is coming to a close, All For One thanks everyone for coming out and supporting their and every other band that played at Le Grand Fromage. The exhausted band members then pack up their gear, already discussing new ideas and plans for upcoming shows.
