Theres Gonna Be An Accident
Peak in sub-genre #17
A mixture of original compositions and original arrangements of covers. The band has a very broad list of musical influences and our members represent two musical generations. Consequently it is difficult to nail down our sound to a specific genre. While a song may lean heavily toward rock, there may be colors of jazz in the melody, while country or blues makes an appearence in the rythm. The Patriarchs of the band are John Kepler on drums/percussion/vocals and Archie Hinton on electric/accoustic guitar/vocals. Both of these guys are veterans with Archie leading the way. Archie has toured nationally as a sideman and spent time as an L.A. session player and John has decades of experience in local and regional acts as well as sideman work with the USO.
