So my solution to that is this weeks band to be things I was involved with
What kind of musician would I be if I didn't indulge in some shameless self promotion?
Not a very good one thats for sure.
So here we go
First up is JFTR.
Kind of a gay picture, but hey I'm okay with it. I know we aren't a band anymore, but it doesn't mean I cant show people the stuff. JFTR ( Just For The Record ) has been a huge part of my life, almost Eight years in the making. Alot of crap, and I mean A LOT, but I wouldn't trade a second of it, not even the sucky shows that we played for maybe 3 people tops, some of those were the best.
And those five guys are family, I love those guys....no homo. And while we're on the topic of love, I'm eternally grateful to anyone who supported us throughout those years, ESPECIALLY those who were there from when we started (and sucked so much it was ridiculous) right up to the end! We wouldn't have made it so far without people like that. So here's where you can check out our stuff!
Just head on over to www.facebook.com/jftrmusic SIMPLE. AS.PIE YO! :)
This is a picture from our last show. We closed with "Avenue Earthquake" Which I thought was quite fitting with it being the first song we ever wrote (since we changed styles) it made sense for it to be the last song we ever played as JFTR. I'll be straight up, when Garrett said "This is the last song you'll ever hear from JFTR, etc." I almost cried haha. I Love every single person that was there for that moment and everybody that came up on stage to share that with us. you're the best.
The Bonus Bandits.
Me and Matts rap group, I know you're probably thinking "Rap? Seriously?"
Yes. Seriously. Not about pimps & hoes though, we figured we would rap about what we love. which is beards, yo yos, mario, zombies. things like that. We were pretty much 100% serious about joke rap, and those shows were some of the funnest i've ever played, and the easiest. Plug in an ipod and rap, done and done :) (I'm aware that funnest isn't a word.)
you can go listen to some of our stuff at www.facebook.com/thebonusbandits
Oh and also, we made a music video, most awkward thing I've ever done, but I love it more than a puppy. It was probably the best 3 days of my life.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST!:
This Is Paramount
Something Me Chris & Garrett have been working on.
We just finished up our cover of Set Fire To The Rain by Adele. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. The other song "Hit & Run" we just decided hey lets go record something just to be playing music again, and Hit & Run was born. We may be going up to re-record it pretty soon so thats always good news. Anyway, you can listen to both at www.facebook.com/thisisparamount
Thats it, I'm done for the day! If you want any of the stuff let me know and I'll figure out how to get it to you, thanks for reading this
