Randy King and The New Positions
The Positions were the darlings of Indy's early 80's skinny tie and leopard skirt set. For yesterday, today and tomorrow, Randy King and The New Positions continue to show how it's done.
Indianapolis-based Moon Rocks (formed in 2010) are well-seasoned musicians that offer an eclectic array of rock originals that range from poignant to defiant - delivered with a passion that conveys the resilient legacy of its band members. Moon Rock’s work is most notable for incorporating a myriad of musical genres, such as Ska, Reggae, Classical, Country, and Blues, while keeping true to their rock and roll roots.
Rex Martin, who shares vocals with Laura Feltner, is the band’s founder, keyboardist extraordinaire, and primary songwriter. Since his early career as co-owner of Wonderwall records on the Eastside, he has performed in Indy bands since the 80’s including The Positions, The Obvious (with Moon Rock’s drummer, Little Oscar), Abstractions, and the Reverberaters. During the Abstractions years, Rex likewise teamed up with current Moon Rocks artists: Kenny Pemberton, guitar; Jack Gummer, guitar; and Mike Welch, bass.
Before his Moon Rock’s incarnation, Jack Gummer shined as the guitarist of New York-based, Historic Doubts, Indy’s Barry Smith Method, and slide-guitar wizard of the blues band, Catfish and the Bottom Feeders. Drummer, Little Oscar, (formerly of Oxygen - Indy, and The Anti-Section - NY City), not only adds his rhythmic magic to both the Moon Rocks and Randy King and The New Positions, he has produced two solo albums under the pseudonym, Little Oscar and the Oscats, entitled “Like a Fine Wine” and “Whatever Happened to the 70’s?” - these albums can be found on iTunes.
Laura Feltner, who hails from a family of accomplished musicians, lent her powerful, soulful - yet saucy - vocals to country band, Winterhawk, and acoustic group, Cactus Jack prior to joining the Moon Rocks. Likewise, bass player, Mike Welch, is a versatile artist that divides his musical passions between rock and classical music, also performing with the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra. Finally, Kenny Pemberton, whose enigmatic guitar expertise is widely known throughout Indianapolis, has also begun writing songs for the Moon Rocks, adding to the multiplicity of the band’s broad appeal.
The Moon Rock’s first album is set to debut this summer.
