is just about the hardest working band in the biz, playing over 350 shows and selling nearly 3,000 copies of their self titled EP in their first 2 years as a band. They are known for their rich 3 part harmonies, driving bass, melodic guitar arrangements, soundscapes and introspective lyrics.

Coldplay and Beatles figure into the equation, but popsters like Pink Floyd and Crowded House set the direction. With two EP's under their belt, the band is out doing what it does best: playing live. A little humor, great singing, razor sharp playing, and the ability to create imagery remiscent of Pink Floyd, sets these guys' shows apart from the rest of the pop pack. Their music is a reminder of bands that could once play their instruments and also write a great song without overplaying, and it's all delivered with tight, clean precision. Their amps also go up to 11. This band is on the road over 200 dates a year!

Sun Domingo is: Jason Pomar- lead vocals /bass guitar, - , Edgel Groves Jr.,- guitar, vocals, percussion. Aaron Simpson-Lead Guitar, Nathan Lathouse- Drums.- - . Jason has a powerhouse voice with incredible range and not since Sting have we seen a bass player handle so much of the lead vocal duties and lay it down at the same time. . Calling Atlanta, GA their home, they are currently on Fall tour and catching a buzz.
 
 
Young Aaron Simpson from Atlanta only joined the band a few months ago
I knew the times I saw him perform live someone would grab him quickly and take him away from
our local clubs - And yes this happend, Aarron is now full time on the road nationwide.
 
Come back to us soon Aaron - We all miss you !!!!

Joe writes ...."As a high profile music journalist, my interviews and features have appeared and continue to appear in countless music magazines around the world from Australian Guitar, Blunt and Australian Musician in Australia to Classic Rock, Guitar & Bass, Metal Hammer, Bass Guitar Magazine, Total Guitar, Kerrang! and Record Collector in the U.K. From Guitar World, The Big Takeover, Goldmine and Maximum Ink in the U.S and Snaggletooth in Canada to This Is Rock in Spain and Chitarre in Italy. I also contribute exclusive interviews to Ultimate-Guitar.Com and am a contributor to UK's Guardian Series Newspapers' Limited Edition magazine as well as Fairfax Newspapers' M - The Sunday Age in Melbourne. "

Joe loves Free and Paul Kossoff's
guitar playing. Joe's aim was to recapture Kossoff's  spirit and to play his solo as
best as he could as well as add his feel and nuances to it, which he  thinks he did.

All right now was recorded in one take and there are no overdubs as he wanted to
capture the feel of the song as he plays it live.

Joe's tribute to Koss will be coming soon to his website

 SUPPORTING SIMON KIRKE
The Astor Theatre, Deal, Kent -

 SUPPORTING SIMON KIRKE
The Park Hotel, Tynemouth -

As shown on their website

An incredibly huge thank you goes out to everyone who came out to support Simon Kirke and Freeway this weekend!!!! 

The project has been a truly amazing experience for us, two fantastic dates (Fri 23 in Deal, Kent and Sat 24 in Tynemouth) with two outstanding audiences - thanks for helping us to lift the roof!  On both nights, Simon Kirke opened the proceedings, accompanied by Larry Oakes, with a 70-minute acoustic set containing some Free / Bad.Co classics, plus some of his newer, solo material.  What class!
Freeway took to the stage next, and with Terry Wilson-Slesser on vocals they took an ecstatic crowd through a set of Free's finest - but then, they're all fine, aren't they? - and were overjoyed to be joined at the climax of the night by Simon Kirke himself on the drums, to finish of the proceedings in fine style with All Right Now, Wishing Well and (in Tynemouth) The Hunter.  The crowd in Deal were also lucky enough to witness Geoff Whitehorn take over the guitar playing on Wishing Well, and to see Simon Kirke receive a presentation of a gold disc from Ian Brenchley of Universal Records for UK sales of the Free Forever DVD.

It has been an honour and a privilege to work with Simon (and Larry!).  We can't thank them enough for coming all the way over from the USA to make this dream come true for us.  Big love to you both.

Special thanks also go to:
John Buckton (for organising simply everything and making it all work)
Rob Dunn (for passing on the sticks, what a star)
Rick Hunt (for staying on that stage in Deal when all of Freeway had abandoned you...we salute you!)
Terry Wilson-Slesser (just for being Sless, pure class)
Suzanne and Jon at the Astor Theatre (best hospitality EVER)
Ian Brenchley (for not turning back on on the motorway when all seemed lost...and for the disc, a magic moment)

And me, apparently...for whatever it is that I do that makes it all go smoothly!  If you have pics, vids or reviews of either of these sensational shows, send them HERE, now!!  We'll put the best ones on the site, so get sending!!

I have spent my life in the single minded pursuit of living a life in the spot light...with no regard for the cost or repercussions...without fear of loneliness and isolation or being the object of envy or scorn. From as far back as I can remember I have tried to be the best I could be- as a student, a dancer, a singer and an artist. When it all comes down to it, I must live with myself alone and the pride in who I am and what I have worked for makes me whole. Without it I am empty...
