Evans, GA (PRWEB) April 22, 2007
The Mood is excited to announce that they will perform as pre-show entertainment at the ESPN BASS "Pride of Georgia" Tournament on Sunday, April 22 from 12-3pm.
Made up of twins Cody and Chase Stringfield, Ian Ribble and Austin Peters, The Mood has found a successful balance between playing at charity events, festivals and shows, and attending school. Together for over a year, they have already defined their style, their sound, and made a place for themselves in the local independent musical landscape.
"We're pretty excited to have this opportunity to perform not only in our home town but in a venue close to our interests - boating and fishing", said bass guitarist, Ian Ribble. "It's even more special for Cody and me because our dad will fish in the tournament", adds drummer, Chase Stringfield.
The Mood conveys a funk rock blues sound that is reminiscent of bands like Jimi Hendrix and The Doors with a modern flair influenced by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their slick brand of alternative blues rock is played with skill and precision, which is a pleasant and unexpected surprise for audiences since none of the members is more than 19!
The Mood is one of seventeen finalists out of 7,000 contestants for Bodog Music's $1 Million Battle of the Bands. The Mood bested several bands from the southeast region and qualified as the 2006 City Wide Warfare Winner in Atlanta. In January they traveled to Cleveland, home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where the final elimination tour and shooting of the Bodog Music reality show begins and will air on Fuse TV in June.
What began as a high school senior project has guided four young men into a music career with not only a chance to visit six rocking cities - Cleveland, Memphis, New Orleans, Austin, Las Vegas and Los Angeles but also a shot at a $1,000,000 recording contract with Bodog Music.
