August 26, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:45 pm$10
American Wrecking Company is a fusion of many influences from metal, punk, rock and everything in between. The camaraderie and mutual love for making music, AWC lays down infectious rhythms, choruses and
face-pounding verses. The music combined with a stage presence seldom matched, American
Wrecking Company leaves fans with an insatiable appetite for more.
Baby and the Nobodies might hail from the Pacific Northwest, but they sound like they could have come from the So-Cal punk scene in the late 80’s early 90’s. Rebecca Terry’s vocals are reminiscent of the Punk Rock styling of Blondie and the Runaways, but you can tell her influences go far beyond just that. With poppy, in your face melodies she takes the guitar driven music of Baby and the Nobodies to new levels that force you to pay attention.
Penning the music falls on guitar player, Rev, who has written and performed all over the world, he takes his influences from the early Punk and Glam scene citing Johnny Thunders and Mike Ness as his favorites. He states: “If I hear something I like, I can’t stop listening, be it punk, rock, country or dance music I don’t care, if it’s good I listen to it”. Teaming up with Rebecca has been an inspiration and an outlet to get some of the songs in his head out to the crowds. “People want to hear this”, he says. His guitar sound adds the color and flavor, from the tasteful chunky riffs to the sweet guitar melodies that paint the canvas of each and every song. Mark, in the band, is called “The Human Metronome” his drumming not only keeps Baby and the Nobodies in time, but holds the crowd in captivity. Kenny, on bass, holds down the bottom end, and adds a specific flair that can only be described as awesome. Together these four individuals form one united front: Baby and the Nobodies. They aren’t just a group of people that make music, they are a band that works hard and takes you on a journey each time you see them perform.
Baby and the Nobodies have a 10 song CD titled “Satellite Highway”, Mixed by Phil Soussan, former bass player for Ozzy Osbourne. The disc is filled with with heartachingly soulful songs, catching the rock n roll edge they know and love, that will keep you tapping your steering wheel like you were driving down the PCH on a sunny afternoon. Bluesy Guitar-Driven Power Pop-Punk Rockers with class and feeling for days. Don’t let the name fool you, these guys are definitely not Nobodies.
Keep your eyes open for Baby and the Nobodies, they will be touring the west coast, playing car shows in the Pacific Northwest and blowing up your favorite speakers.
