1 Last Chance
Dead Country Gentlemen
Biloxi, Mississippi’s 1 Last Chance returns to Fort Stockton!
In a time when contrived pop, hip-hop and country completely dominate the mainstream music industry, 1 Last Chance holds on to an unyielding belief: that music should actually mean something. It should not be background noise, it should not be trivial and it should not be insincere. Instead, it should be powerful, it should be emotional and, most of all, it should be real.
Based out of Oxford, Mississippi, founding members Jacob Hampton and Brandon McDaniel have been crafting the band’s music since 2010. After releasing their initial demos to the public in 2012 and receiving a strong positive response in return, they started taking on the region with their live shows, employing an energy and stage presence that is unrivaled. Since then, they’ve shared the stage with the likes of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Emery, Framing Hanley and Taproot just to name a few.
Having been inspired in their youths by groups like Green Day, Rise Against and Jimmy Eat World, the band blends elements of alternative rock, punk rock and progressive rock into a style that is completely unique to them, yet still familiar enough that listeners connect with it wholeheartedly.
Three dudes from Southern California being loud.
Hailing from the mission district of San Francisco, Dead Country Gentlemen combine octave fuzz riff driven blues with lyrics about death, the afterlife, magic and love loss to deliver heartfelt shows that reflect their unsettling lyrics.
