As I posted earlier…I am feeling a little abused after last nights Lucero show and as the day wears on I am in a rapid decline. I have had this typed up for a few weeks now and today seems as good as any to post it.
Today I’ll bring you 2 bands, one from Florida and one from Texas. I hope you enjoy ’em.
I’ll be honest, I don’t know how this band’s CD ended up on my hard drive. I assume it came off some p2p app, but what I don’t know is why I downloaded it. I had never heard of them and there is nothing about the band’s name or the CD name that really stand-out, but there it is; Ryan Bales Band – Revival. The Ryan Bales Band is from San Marcos, Texas. They make music in the southern rock genre that feels familiar w/o being a Skynyrd ripoff. That might sound a little trite, but in the world of southern rock bar bands there is no shortage of kids trying to be Skynyrd. These guys have potential…. so go see them if they come to your town.
Recommended myspace track: Moonshine
If you live in the Tampa/St. Pete area and have not at least heard of the Beauvilles then you live in a complete local music vacuum. So, allow me to leak a little air in. The Beauvilles are a Tampa based quartet that plays rock and roll music. While they come off as highly arrogant and pretentious in print, they come off as raw and honest live. Tampa folks….check them out. The rest of you should venture over to myspace and check ’em out.

I hope you find something you like between these two bands. This will be an occasional and random subject on 9b.net. So, if you have a myspace band you think deserves more attention than it is getting ..tell us about them if we like em well talk about em .and that is the essence of this here site .
