The MockingBirds are a
Rhode Island based Rock / Pop / Alternative Band, with a tiny
twinge of Country twang. They mix the energy of Rock and the
craftsmanship of Pop with social and political commentary.
Kenneth Cardoso, Heather
Rose, Buzz Lyon, and Kevin Berard are four white kids from
the suburbs in love with music, it's stories, and the history.
From Robert Johnson running from the hellhounds, to the echo
of the chain gang in LeadBelly's voice. From how Elvis changed
the world, to how the Beatles changed it again. How you looked
differently at the world and yourself after listening to Dylan
for the first time. The excitement to imagine a mass of people
getting together one weekend in 1969 to listen to music, hangout,
dropout, and say screw you. Awed to see the Clash and Elvis Costello
not be afraid of the decade that preceded them. And happy to
see U2, REM, and the Replacements not be afraid of the decade
they were in. And proud to be a part of the last gasp of rock
'n' roll when Cobain screamed the lyrics to "Smells Like
Teen Spirit" with the explosions from Athens to Seattle
and LA to Boston.
Today we are sad sometimes,
annoyed most times, but always optimistic. Always looking for
the jangle in Kenny's guitar, the hymn in Heather's voice, the
McCartney in Buzz's bass, and the dance in Kevin's drums. Bring
on the new.
