THE LAW BAND is a hard rockin’ country act based in the southern music capital of Atlanta, Georgia, with influences of Americana, rockabilly, bluegrass and psychedelic, that appeals to both the rural roughneck and urban artist in us all. Their debut album “Dust and Aether,” released on December 21, 2012, complete with comic book illustrations, is a musical and visual tribute to all the cowboys, pioneers, gunslingers, hillbillies and wanderers who live free and write their own rules.

Inspired by the spaghetti western films of yesteryear, the album is set in small town America somewhere east of the Mississippi, where a wayward wanderer limps into town on his weary horse and only friend, seeking refuge, a cold beer and a willing woman. Just as he begins to ingratiate himself with the locals, a rumor arises that the cowboy is in fact an outlaw on the run. The sheriff storms in, demanding his ouster and arrest. A firefight ensues, leaving the old sheriff dead and a new sheriff in charge. He calls himself The Law.

Each song on “Dust & Aether” is a tribute to the cowboy, including tales of personal demons, cheating women, lying friends, heavy drinking, loss of control, loneliness, fear, death, fire and redemption.

The Law Band is comprised of four unique singer/songwriters and musical storytellers, combined to create a cinematic, multi-genre live experience like no other, with lead singers Chandler McGee (also on harmonica), Joel Nettesheim, AKA “Trappers Cabin” (keys, guitar), Hill Roberts (bass) and Nancy Kaye, with several records to her credit as “Rosey” & “Lal Meri” (on percussion). Together with Aaron Hill (rhythm guitarist), Zack Smith (drummer), Blake Benson (lead guitarist), Anna Kondo (background vocals), and featuring special guest Southern Ground recording artist Levi Lowrey (fiddle), The Law Band is the new authority in country music.

You can listen to and purchase “Dust & Aether” on The Law Band’s website (www.TheLawBand.com), as well as on iTunes, Ebay, Spotify & Bandcamp. Be sure to check out the music video for their first single “Crazy Lonesome”(www.CrazyLonesome.com), produced by Cole Cassell.
The gang will be entertaining live audiences all across the east coast in 2013 in towns big and small, so look out for The Law!

Cry With Us! Puddles Pity Party in Orlando

Ange Alex

I owe him a poem:

Here’s a story of a sad clown who one night in February was traveling through O-town. 

He brought a suitcase and a lot of gum, he brought music and videos and tons of fun.

He sang high but mostly he sang low, and he put of one hell of a good show.

He gave a bearded guy a cupcake and danced with a lady, a wolf he would make

There is no doubt he is a boss sir, he even got love from Kevin Costner.

Fans filled the plaza for a night of delight as the 7 foot clown gave us some real insight.

He sang Bowie and Queen and even some Who, also Cash, Lorde and “Let it go” too

Videos played of pets and babies crying, also beautiful artwork and people smiling.

Last night Orlando was anything but mad as we showed much love for a clown that is sad.

Ok, I’d cry too after that poem. Here’s some more info:

If you haven’t been to see a Puddles Pity Party show, you are missing out. 

The show had me smiling and laughing so hard my stomach hurt, but I was also moved so many times by the range of Puddles voice. True entertainment never gets old and I have a feeling he is going to last forever.

I loved the interaction he had with the crowd. He pulled numerous people up to help him on stage and all of them were good sports, one man even singing the entire song, “All by myself” karaoke style! The show was so well thought out and planned but with room for some hilarious improv. Especially at the end when he pulled the 3 fans from the audience dressed like clowns. At the end of them performing together, Puddles suddenly remembers that he is scared of clowns! Genius! 

Hands down one of the best performances I’ve seen in years.

We caught up with Big Mike to ask a few questions.

TBB: Big Mike! It’s been a couple years since we had the pleasure of seeing you perform live. We are so excited to be back in Atlanta and we are ready for this show. What can you tell us about this years event?

Big Mike: Welcome back to Atlanta, Ange! We’re also excited to be in town for another wild and wonderful Holiday Jubilee. We like to honor the tradition that the Jubilee has become and don’t mess too much with the format. You can expect the always magnificent sounds of the 12-piece Kingsized Rock ‘n Roll orchestra performing your favorite holiday classics and the dazzling Dames Aflame dancers providing the glamour. The show is all about holiday nostalgia, whatever that means to you: Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Donnie Hathaway, The Grinch, Rankin Bass, Peanuts, the Dreidel Song? It’s all in there.
