OMT (One More Time)
Classic rock, Contemporary Country, Alternative, and much more.
Great songs you love and great songs you may not know but WILL love. Tight vocal harmonies and a ton of fun! (And yes, we did weigh the fun to be sure).
This is the band that seriously doesn't take itself seriously. :D
It's all about the great 'party rock 'n' roll' that you hear comin' out of your drunk neighbor's old and dying humungous speakers around midnight on a Saturday night - where everyone at his house is having the time of their lives, but you're wussing out cuz you gotta work on Monday. Wahhh... Every thing from the classic 70's & 80's favorites to contemporary hits. I'll let one of the band's posters speak for itself....
The Billy Martin Band
I get the chance to help out with this great band by coming in on some of their shows. Classic to contemporary rock and pop, with great musicians, great vocals, and a bunch of really funny guys!
Classic Rock to Americana. The Reunion Tour 2022! :)
As busy as I am with shows, guitar lessons, band rehearsals, etc, I'm sure I'll miss posting something at some point.
