Hometown Sweethearts

Hometown Sweethearts

Hometown Sweethearts are way more than one of the best cover bands out there today. This may be a bold statement to make, but they can really back it up. They're not a random group of musicians that got together to make money playing the Chicken Dance or Kool & The Gang covers. What really makes the Hometown Sweethearts stand out from other wedding entertainment is their genuineness. Their catchy dance rhythms are the perfect blend of uniqueness and familiarity. They are truly one of a kind! The core trio of the band have been performing together for over a decade.

In a very short time, they found a musical personality and a commanding groove that has been stirring up dance floors, clubs and wedding receptions all over the country. The Sweethearts bring to mind your favorite band covering your other favorite band's songs. When they perform, it's like hearing tracks you've always loved for the first time! Their one-of-a-kind yet familiar sounds have been turning heads in some interesting places. They were recently featured as the cocktail band in the Adam Sandler film, "That's My Boy". They've also been spotlighted on the NPR radio program, "Whad'Ya Know". They've even played a set of music with Blues Traveler frontman John Popper on harmonica, rolling through hits ranging from Steve Miller to Duran Duran! Their wide range of musical styles mirror their eclectic achievements.

The Hometown Sweethearts bill themselves as a "music lovers party band" because they've dug up a repertoire of songs that are timeless, relevant, and most importantly, not played out. Their selections are so diverse, it's not uncommon to hear Hall and Oats segue into Johnny Cash, or a Jackson 5 song mix into Madonna, then twist into Talking Heads without missing a beat. And since this band has been playing together for so many years, they can effortlessly blend one song into the next without a pause. They perform music like DJ's make mixes! Once your dance floor is jumping, the Sweethearts make it nearly impossible to turn back. With a catalogue of over 400 selections, they have plenty of songs to please everyone. They can perform the time tested favorites, some of today's latest hits, or dig deep into the soundtrack of your life. They can even mix the obscure tunes with the classics without ever changing the party atmosphere.

Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires

The title of LEE BAINS III AND THE GLORY FIRES' debut album comes from Bains mishearing an old hymn as a child. In the soft accents of his elders around Birmingham, Alabama, "There is a balm in Gilead" sounded a lot like "There is a bomb." It fits, really. The Glory Fires learned to construct music in the churches of their childhoods, and learned to destroy it in the punk clubs of their youths.

As much Wilson Pickett as Fugazi, as much the Stooges as the Allman Brothers, Birmingham, Alabama's Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires have brought radical rock'n'roll to bear on their own experience and their own place. On 'THERE IS A BOMB IN GILEAD,' they deconstruct the music of the Deep South, strip it down and reassemble it, to make a righteous ruckus that sits at the vanguard of the vernacular.
