Them Changes - Mecca Super Club, Chicago
The Usual Dose was formed approximately three years ago in 2005. The band is a collection of talented musicians all with at least twenty years of experience playing live and performing studio work within their respective craft. This wide base of experience and talent leads to a well rehearsed, tight, hard rocking group, particularly in a live setting. The roots of the group are based mainly in 60’s and 70’s “classic” rock, with influences like Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Rolling Stones and others in that genre. Although heavily influenced by 60’s and 70’s rock, The Usual Dose can also be heard playing tunes by artists as diverse as Aretha Franklin, The Black Crowes, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd, The Police, The Temptations, Stone Temple Pilots, The Pretenders and Jimi Hendrix, from the 60’s thru the millennium, all of the bases are covered. Tina Marie Smith: Vocals, harmonica and percussion Chris Fudacz: Guitar and vocals Jason Williams: Bass guitar and vocals Marty Quinn: Drums and percussion www.myspace.com/usualdose www.myspace.com/tinamariesmith1
