American Rock and Roll with a Little Country and a Little Blues
We are a two guitar, bass, vocal, & drum band that have played together in a musical co-op for about 25 years... (In addition, we can add harmonica, accordion, keyboard, trombone and a second percussionist as the need occurs.) We play distinctive shows, about 1 to 4 gigs a month, some for pay and some for free (charitable causes, Good Samaritan basis).
We feel our music and our shows create a fun, jamming, open, vibrant atmosphere that makes the band part of the event (rather than dominating the event) and thus, allows the event to breath.
We supply all sound reinforcement equipment. We can even supply a power generator if needed.
All members of the band are knowledgeable and dedicated musicians, who share a love for a diversity of musical styles and the honesty of live performance. This makes for a nice group of musicians who really want to play live shows. This means a fun event that centers on the occasion rather than the band.
WE use straightforward song arrangements that pivot on improvising moments, dynamics, soloing, and jamming...... some call this style of music AMERICANA.
Our outdoor audiences encompass a wide range of people, from strollers and browsers, to people audio taping, to lawn chair and blanket fans. We tend to draw people who are receptive to many styles of music.
Ages in the band group range from 18 to 55 years old...day jobs include a teacher, an auto mechanic, a cable guy, a GPS scientist, an electrician, a pizza chief, a cop, a Vietnam Vet, and a music student.
