The Remedy Session
This trio rocks HARD, and they're developing an impressive catalog of songs. They've got a real melodic sense in the Buzzcocks school of power pop/punk rock.
The Yoko Theory
Two parts Soul Coughing, one part old school Police, a dash of The Avalanches, a pinch of The Specials, and a liberal dose of psychedelia. The combination may sound jarring at first, but it works!
In the spring of 1996 the hand of fate brought 4 individuals an event that would change their lives forever. The conception of Doorway 27 in June of 1996 created a much needed and well-deserved emotional outlet for these four young South Florida musicians.
One Dog's Opinion
A quick review of One Dog's Opinion the band. Originally formed in 1992 as a punk/rock band. Influenced by the likes of Husker Du, and The Replacements, a melodic punk/alternative sound had emerged. Then, seeing the flood of Nirvana/Green Day wannabee's in the mid 90's.O'dogs set out to shake the locals up some. A new "country" influence had begun to invade their writing. And with the arrival of Johnny in 1995, the sound was complete.

Miracle Strip is a new name for a group of seasoned West Palm all-stars that have played together in some form for nearly a decade.
Rob and Chris formed the band Double Stack Scoobie in 1992 and have played together off and on since then. (Rob is currently drumming full-time with Vinyl.) When the original members of Double Stack Scoobie split up, Chris got together with John Stepp, who has fronted his own project since 2000 after playing with Vinyl in 1999, and Todd Harter, who has played bass with Maryann Flemming and The John Stepp Band. The name was shortened to Double Stack and they incorporated old songs with new songs written by Chris & John during two years of collaboration as roommates. There was a short hiatus during which time the songs that now fuel Miracle Strip were written. The four came back strong in August 2002 with the same energy and skill that have kept audiences coming back year after year.
Plan on hearing a few favorites along with a completely new set. According to John, "Miracle Strip is a project for four best friends to get together, play great music, and still maintain other musical interests". Their style has been influenced by: the Lemonheads, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Sugar, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Jeff Buckley and the Replacements.. There is something for everyone who enjoys great guitar playing and beautiful vocal harmonies.
If this Vero-based band were a baby, it would barely be walking by now. But Venusian Skyline, formed in October of 2001, is already on its feet and waiting to walk out the door this September when it releases Twilight, its first CD, and follows with an East Coast tour.
See Venus has undoubtedly won the hearts of many South Florida indie fans with their catchy take on electro-pop, featuring swirling keyboards, lazy guitar lines, and seductive vocals. Their triumphs are doubly sweet, as the members have admittedly always made music solely for themselves, with hardly any expectations. Former member of local favorite 23, Chris Moll started the project in 2000 as an outlet for his highly developed dexterity in songwriting and guitar-playing. Calling upon influences as varied as the Beach Boys, Stereolab, and Pizzicato Five, See Venus manages to remain eclectic without seeming disheveled and will undeniably keep you dancing.
