Rock On! This Week's Sound Bites...2/15/24
 

"Yes, it's my first time coming to Jamey's, I'm bringing my band, The High Rollers," said an excited Early Times as he discussed his upcoming debut at Jamey's House of Music in Lansdowne, PA on February 24, his new record "Electric City" and more. "I have a keyboard player, a drummer and a bass player, I play guitar and sing. We do, for the most part, a night of original music.That doesn't mean that I don't occasionally throw in something that people know but I kind of live and die on what I write and what I'm trying to present and it usually goes off pretty well. We're gonna do around a two-hour show; I've never been in Lansdowne and I'm really looking forward to it and I'm hoping to get some people to come out and I feel that when we play a place for the first time that we always make new fans who find us, I think, a little refreshing from the usual bar bands that are playing blues."
