Money Where Your Mouth Is: Adam Rich Band


Money Where Your Mouth Is: In which Scene's music writers stop slobbering over My Chemical Romance and let the band speak for itself. Band: Adam Rich Band Hometown: Highland Heights, Ohio Sounds like: "A whole bunch of different styles mashed togethor. Heavy guitars, driving bass, bouncy drums, songs you can hum along to and dance like a crazy fool. I like punk, rock, metal, reggae, ska, indie rock and flatulence. And it shows! Social Distortion meets Ben Harper meets Dramarama meets the Ramones meets John Cougar Mellencamp." Fun fact: "I've known my band members Jared Levengood and Ernie Richmann for 12 years, yet this is the first time we are performing togethor in a band. We went to college togethor at BGSU. Jared likes cornbread. Ernie has a passion for model trains. I like Mexican food." Playing: Live debut Saturday, March 3rd @ the Hi-Fi, as part of the Love Muffin Records showcase. Why You Should See Them: "I played bass in Tadpol and Girth over the last several years. I haven't played guitar in a band since high school, so this should be interesting. Plus, are doing a very odd cover. And there are four other great bands on the bill. Girls will be throwing thongs, too. Party on, Wayne!" -- Adam Rich, guitar
