In the world of music today, there are so many categories in which to classify music, and for people to be attracted to. Most kids are exposed to the newest radio music, but not much from the past. Most of the 25-40 crowd likes the music from their youth (10-25 yrs earlier) but aren't familiar with the latest trends and artists. The 40+ audience is labeled more as easy listening or the oldies crowd. Their music is from 20-40 years ago and don't find most modern music as listenable. Of course, there are exceptions.
Too many musicians and musical groups these days take aim at only one part of the listening audience, or are categorized as a certain style. And then some musicians and groups don't know what they're trying to do; or who they're trying to appeal to. Very few groups have achieved the fine art of mass appeal. Wouldn't it be great if parents liked their kids music and kids liked their parents music?
The Colonel has been playing guitar, writing songs and entertaining audiences on an international level for several years. Listening to music and playing it are his passion. Forming a new musical group with the best, and brightest young musicians, writing great songs and performing live to excited audiences are keeping the Colonel busy and happy. And this is only the beginning!
Everything about the band, the image, the songs, recording and performing has been carefully planned and re-planned; tuned and fine tuned and there has been plenty of surprises along the way. But perhaps the most important things about the group are the high level of musical ability, the band chemistry and the groups mass appeal. In the tradition of history's great four piece rock bands, the band plays original guitar driven Rock and Roll. The vocals are smooth, punchy and sincere. The guitars, intricate, cool and quirky are always supporting the song and the singer. The rhythm section is always tight and dynamic. This band sounds and looks like the real thing. Maybe for the first time in a long while, teenagers, young adults and old timers will find their fingers on the same play button.
