Greetings from The WizBangs

We call ourselves rock and roll balladeers. We have a simple philosophy: create a variety of songs with different styles with underlying core of rock. Our band includes a father (Jim) and his two sons, (J.P. and Charles), all who write the music and lyrics. The other band mates are a revolving team of very talented close friends who add their own style and voice to each song. “The majority of us have played together since I can remember’” says drummer J.P. “We like so many styles and artists, it drives us to be creative with each song.  Yet our familiarity means we might not see each other for a long time. But we get in the studio and in no time, it’s like we’ve never been apart. That’s why making this album was so fun.”

While each of us brings different perspectives to the music, everyone agreed on two goals; songs shouldn’t sound similar and boredom isn’t an option. One minute you can be dreaming about going home as you listen to Pennsylvania then suddenly be shook by the hard opening riffs and angry tone of Common Enemy. We’re telling personal stories running the gamut of emotions. Telling the story is great therapy. We all feel that way.

Our music is an expression of ourselves. We create because it’s fulfilling and we have a great time doing it. That’s the first step. The next step is to see if people like our music. The most efficient way to do that is to use different broadcast media. Yes, we’ll do videos. We’re also considering one unique avenue by doing “live” shows via the avatar world of Second Life.”

We're already planning our next album. We have a stack of new material we’re vetting now. Why? Because every time as we leave the studio, when we're giving our hugs and packing up, we always says, “Let’s do this again." So…
