There are alot of people who have influenced us musically: Heart, KISS, Joan Jett, Led Zeppelin, Yes, ZEBRA, Dokken, Cyndi Lauper to name a few. There are a lot of people who inspire us: spouses, children, parents, friends, co-workers, the people who are exhausted and still get up every morning to do what they need to do to get things done... But after becoming acquainted with Kickstarter we would like to add another name to the list - all of you who are our prospective backers! You help make all of our dreams come true and you cannot put a price on that - you don't know us but yet still believe in us and from the bottom of our hearts we thank you!!!!!!
Christine - lead vocals
Mike Q - guitar
Judah - drums, guitar
Joe - bass, vocals
Christine - I can remember from a very early age being introduced to music - no particular genre as all members of my family listened to different things - Mom - Motown, jazz, Billy Joel, Phil Collins, Dad - Doo Wop all the way!!, Brother - New Wave, alternative, Eldest sister - Classic Rock, 2nd Eldest sister - soft rock, show tunes - so between all of them I had a full education of music and was instantly a fan of everything!! I loved my Mommy for a lot of reasons but one of the biggest was how she taught me the power of music - how it touches you and how it weaves in and out of your everyday life...
I use music to vent, to heal, to celebrate, to show hurt, you name it. I love that my music helps people with their pain - people have told me they identify with one of our songs, "Save Me" and I LOVE that we could be there for people and help them through tough times, support them and celebrate them or just be their friend. I started writing lyrics and singing in high school and I never looked back.
TheBandCC started in Jan of 2008 - I was blessed with meeting the right people at the right time and us all coming together to be what is our current lineup - our dream has always been to create, record and play our music and that people would not only enjoy it but feel it and make it a part of them- We just finished our latest CD, "Evolve" but we need help distributing it and funding merchandise. Please make our dream a reality. Our plan is simple - we want to distribute our CD so everyone can take a little piece of us home with them. Some of our highlights have been to open for Randy Jackson of ZEBRA, as well as Manamana Rox, White Trash, and Race Odyssey.
And please spread the word to your friends, family, co-workers - we would love our music to be introduced to them!!!
Thank you so much for your consideration and thank you so much for helping us live our dream :-)
Mike -- I returned to music after a VERY long hiatus, and after stints with a number of other bands, I joined TheBandCC in the Summer of 2011. It has been an amazing and fruitful partnership. I think the key to our originality is our diversity -- Chris and Joe came of musical age in the 80's with bands such as KISS and Motley Crue, Judah cut his teeth on 80's Metal such as Dokken, and I am a dyed-in-the-wool 70's Classic Rock and Prog fanatic. But instead of promoting discord, our different backgrounds work together to bring about something new and fresh. We are not afraid to blend styles and genres. As I often tell our fans, I think we might be the only band on the planet which has done covers, in a single show, of both the Ramones and Yes, and we manage throughout to sound just like us.
We are a unit with brains, heart, and soul, and your generosity will help us get on the musical map. Thank you for your support. You will be hearing from us.....
