Every Wednesday i am going to be posting about Bands and Musicians i've opened for, played shows with, and generally like and Listen to. I'm going to Highlight Three acts a week and give a little run-down of the band and things i like about them. #supportlocalmusic and traveling acts. Here are my Three This week for the 2nd volume of the Wednesday Music Run-Down
Last Days Pay:
Punk rock, cheap beer, sniffing panties. Last Day's Pay focus on the important things in life. Formed in the summer of 2013, Last Day's Pay are punk rockers at their core, but refuse to tie themselves down to a single genre. Their music blends influences of punk, classic rock, hair metal, and grunge to create a familiar but unique sound. I gladly drive 2 hours away to see these guys at least once or twice a month. They put on such a great show and get the crowd involved more than any other band I've seen. I've got to join them on several occasions, and it is a blast. i can honestly say Joe, Randy, Jake and Chris of last days pay have been some of the greatest friends I've made in the last few years. These guys are staples of the north east Ohio Music scene (Akron / Canton / Cleveland). There full length album "Pink Slip" has been the most played CD in my car...Ever.
Find Them Here:
Dominic Is a wonderfully talented singer / songwriter /pianist. This kid can flat out play. His moniker "Blues infusion" suits his style and his music. I recently was offered an opportunity to play bass for him at Tatoheads in Columbus Ohio. Playing along side him was one of the funnest nights of my career as a musician. I see Dominic going places, he's got such a unique talent, he just has a charisma about himself.
I can say i a big fan.
Find Him Here:
Many eons ago (roughly 2012) atop the volcanic peak of Death Mountain, a messenger from the stars ascended from it's position among-st the Rock Gods, carrying a gift from the heavens. To this day, no one is quite sure what exactly it was, but what is known is that it was something...well...keen. I wish i could take credit for writing that. Something Keen is progressive indie hard rock power band puts on a really fun and engaging show. I recently saw them and was really feeling the vibe they were giving. The music had a lot of drive and good melodies. Be sure to catch them around Columbus. They are certainly worth seeing, hopefully i can catch them again soon.
