that knows no boundaries and whose apparent mission is to entertain their audience. This act puts their

alternative, punk and even a little blues. However, whats most impressive is that there strong in every
style and give their all on every song. Left Standing is one of the newest breakout rock groups to come
out of the Las Vegas music scene. Their presence on the national scene is begging to grow, with new
fans across the globe due to the internet. In a recent press release, the group offers their formula for
success; "we set out to make music we enjoy and can feel proud of playing music that we like and want
to listen to. As soon as you start thinking beyond that, about wanting to keep up with the Jones's or
about fitting in with somebody else's format , that's when you lose the map. So we've just done what we
do, and tried to have fun doing it." Left Standing has released two incredible albums, with their own
unique style and sound. In 2005 the group launched their debut release Life I Stereo, which featured the
popular singles "Sorry" and "No One Wins." In 2007 they followed up with the release of The Living Room
Sessions which included acoustic tracks such as "Holding The Weight" and "American Anthem." Keep an
eye out for thier newest release in 2010 "What it Takes".
