Going to a major concert can be real expensive and sometimes a hassle. Spending an arm and leg to travel a couple of hours to hear some live music. With the local scene, it can be in your backyard for a minimal cover charge or free! These are some of many reasons why I like to support the local scene.
One my favorite local bands is Mean Jake. They play a hard edged blues rock that you can dance to. They can rock your world with tunes like Van Morrison's Gloria, CCR's Suzi Q, Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire and my personal fave - a blistering version of Sympathy for the Devil by the Stones. These guys are no frills and all rock.
So what local bands you support and why?
