An Easter weekend spent first driving to my parents, and then again to my in-laws, meant that there was a lot of time to listen to mixed MP3 CDs in the Honda Civic. All four of us, to one degree or another, love hard rock music, and some form of it is the usual "go to" selection when we have to spend time together on a trip (since it's the only type of music we all agree upon and there is only so much Ke$ha I can take in one sitting).
One band that I discovered a few years ago, and have had several opportunities to see in concert, is Bobnoxious. I love this band so much that I convinced a friend of mine to book them for a small outdoor concert that he was promoting two summers ago. Because of the booking, I was able to meet Bob Reid and the boys and spend a few hours learning about what life is like on the road for this immensely popular local band.
Bobnoxious' music is straight-ahead, balls-to-the-wall, gritty rock and roll. Their attitude is pure rock, and most of their songs are about the three staples, sex, drugs and rock and roll. This band has to be seen live to be appreciated. They are all attitude and work-ethic, and by the sweat that streams off of them, you know they are going full out and giving you everything that they have.
The band receives a lot of airplay on the local radio station, 94.5 The Bull, and I have posted one of my favourite (and website appropriate) songs, "Tool Loud" below.
An exploration of the music that holds meaning in my life.
