When you get a call from a friend who is at a music fest and she is all excited, you check out the band.
Our friend Julie, clued us onto The Brighter Side a quartet of young men from the Canton, Ohio area. They got a last minute call to fill in for a band who could not make the Canton Blues Fest and Jake Friel, Fuad Farah, Noah Simionides and Keith Wilson made the most of their opportunity and wowed the crowd.
We will sit and talk to the lads and find out what is on their radar for 2011 and beyond while listening to some songs.
Then, the band is called The Ladies Of Sport and they are Rich DeCicco and sisters Ann and Mary Kohatsu.
They met in a dive bar in Manhattan one cold evening and when they left, there was a band.
Their debut album Empires Fall launched in February of 2009. Subtle grooves support this record packed with catchy songs. Starting in May 2011, new singles released by The Ladies of Sport juxtapose elements of their old sound with added edge.
We will speak with the band and listen to some of the songs from the album and the newer singles. They classify their music as Alt-pop, but it caught our ear, so they come sit on The Couch
Come take a seat on The Couch and "Meet Musicians You Should Know"
