The band with the peculiar name, no rehearsal. Whether they actually rehearse or not is a question for another time, but something that’s not in question is their ability to blend the elements of blues rock blistering guitar solos with the subtle grooves of IndieRock rhythm.
no rehearsal aims to break the pre-conceived notion that “young people” can’t have music of both technical and emotional value. Drawing influences from the seamless guitar heavy pop sensibilities of John Mayer, the melodic intricacies and atmospheric tones of The Neighbourhood, the raw, and the gritty blues packaged for mainstream media shown in The Black Keys (to name just a few influences), no rehearsal echoes with both classic and modern music. and is a versatile, genre crossing band, that is more than worth your listen!
Hailing from Houston, TX, this power trio consists of Matthew Cobb (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Christian Mireles (Bass), and David Shorey (Drums).
no rehearsal has performed at SXSW 2013, Berklee College of Music’s Day Party at Brush Square Park, and at New Daisy Theater on Beale Street as the Houston Youth representative for the Houston Blues Society in the International Blues Competition. no rehearsal has amassed a solid following in Houston, having performed at large venues such as the main stage at House of Blues Houston, and opened for some of Houston’s rock royalty such as Seasons After, and Escape (former members of Stride). They have even performed the official broadway scores of “Hairspray” and “Grease” the musicals.
No More Excuses. That’s the mantra, and the band. Face melting guitar mixed with driving bass, creative drumming and vocals stingingly sweet but still raw, Their music borrows from hardcore, indie, metal, progressive, punk, noise, and blues.
The band has been perfecting their live show and are a force to be reckoned with.
Boasting a band of brothers mentality, (NME still has all the original founding members) and with extensive touring planned in the band’s near future, there’s truly,
No More Excuses.
