This event is 18 and over
As the namesake suggests, HELLBOUND GLORY is barreling through the gates of country music on a one-way track to their rightful place as the band to be reckoned with. Cutting lyrics, timeless characters, and scorching vocal delivery combine to yield a potent sonic distillation unique to this Reno, NV based trio. Front man, Leroy Virgil, summons from the very foundations of country music an onslaught of raucous melodies reminiscent of the genre's finest. Eric "Rico" Peterson picks scorching licks from his signature lap-steel with death-metal dexterity. Frank Medina, lays down the bass with a sureness and groove to round out a sound that, seemingly, is stirred by twice the bands number.
"If you're gonna sing it proud, you gotta live it first!" - "Cliche Country Singer"
And don't that pretty much say it all? HELLBOUND GLORY has forged their reputation on the road; the band's name itself is a promise to their fans and live performance ethic. With a breakneck touring schedule; the band is a workhorse in the genre. Criss-crossing North America for the better part of the last decade; HELLBOUND GLORY continues to conquer new stomping ground nightly on the strength of three full length releases; "Scumbag Country," "Old Highs & New Lows," and "Damaged Goods."
Perhaps fittingly, the underground following, like so many minions, continue to belt the gospel that is HELLBOUND GLORY. But alas O' Ye Faithful, this is not a band that is destined for underground obscurity. Indeed, a chorus of likeminded Scumbags won't have it that way and neither will Leroy, Eric, or Frank. With new unreleased songs already holstered; HELLBOUND GLORY is on track for an early fall full length release.
"I'm spittin' blood but still runnin' my mouth and I ain't goin' down til the lights go out!" – "Til The Lights Go Out"
Fifth On The Floor
Fifth on the Floor started out like all good bands do: on a Friday night over a bottle of Jim Beam. After a few weeks of songwriting, lineup-changes, and hangovers, the grouping of ChrisCollins, Robin Polly, Matty Rodgers, and Justin Wells solidified the group dynamic and sound that are instantly identifiable.
Less than a month after inception, Fifth on the Floor were hitting venues all over Kentucky. Soon after, the band was rocking stages in Virginia, Tennessee, Illinois, and Ohio. The songs that developed were recorded on FOTF's debut record, "The Color of Whiskey". The release is as much a melting pot of American music as the band itself, with songs ranging from honky-tonk to southern jam to hard rock, and everything in between. "The Color of Whiskey" is as unabashedly raw and straight-forward as FOTF's stage show.
With the 2010 release of their sophomore record "Dark and Bloody Ground", Fifth on the Floor has built a rock-solid testament to honest music, with nothin'-but-guts songs like "Shine", "On My Way", and "The Fall". The record describes hard times, but with its chin up and its fists raised.
FOTF wears their country/americana roots on their collective sleeves, yet the rock-infused energy of their live performance is something to behold. Having played nearly three hundred shows in four years, they've honed their show to an unforgettable experience. A Fifth on the Floor show is not unlike a one night stand: they let their hair down, kick your ass, and, with any luck, you'll remember it in the morning.
