Show me your good local bands!!
Tons of talent out there that never quite makes it huge!

These guys have been big in my area for 25 years...started as Stranger, now morphed to the Greg Billings Band, they fucken rock the house everywhere they go.

Great Southern Rock Jam Band.

The early days:



Now, a little older...

This is the band that the movie "Almost Famous" was based on.

80's hair metal band from Tampa Bay that made limited rotation on MTV with this, possibly the cheesiest video ever, but a kickass song if you close your eyes and ignore the vid, lol!

Re: Show me your good local bands!!
I hear the similarities. There was and still is a pretty rocking music scene in my city. Lots of interaction between artists.

Even Janice Joplin played here, both onstage as well as dancing in a city fountain during an impromptu music festival in a downtown park. She was amazed the cops never came to close them down. "There's hippies in the fountain and nobody's bustin' them" [link to publications.winnipegfreepress.com]

Hmm, on second thought, I know I'm getting old when the rebels of my generation are being written about in the local boomer mag.

Another from Harlequin, they really are one hell of a band.

Saw these guys live a few times, I also use to work with a couple of them at a skate shop years ago when it was still in business and people were going outside and skateboarding.
