Money Where Your Mouth Is:
In which Scene's music writers stop slobbering over My Chemical Romance and let the band speak for itself.
Band: Adam Rich Band
Highland Heights, Ohio
"A whole bunch of different styles mashed togethor. Heavy guitars, driving bass, bouncy drums, songs you can hum along to and dance like a crazy fool. I like punk, rock, metal, reggae, ska, indie rock and flatulence. And it shows! Social Distortion meets Ben Harper meets Dramarama meets the Ramones meets John Cougar Mellencamp."
"I've known my band members Jared Levengood and Ernie Richmann for 12 years, yet this is the first time we are performing togethor in a band. We went to college togethor at BGSU. Jared likes cornbread. Ernie has a passion for model trains. I like Mexican food."
Live debut Saturday, March 3rd @ the Hi-Fi
, as part of the Love Muffin Records showcase.
Why You Should See Them:
"I played bass in Tadpol and Girth over the last several years. I haven't played guitar in a band since high school, so this should be interesting. Plus, are doing a very odd cover. And there are four other great bands on the bill. Girls will be throwing thongs, too. Party on, Wayne!" -- Adam Rich, guitar
