There is much to say about this band-and in the interest of having my ADD riddled readers complete my Another Day Dawns article , I ’ m going to share with you a top ten list !
TOP TEN REASONS THAT ANOTHHER DAY DAWNS WILL BE HEADLINING A FESTIVAL SHOW WITHIN FIVE YEARS
10 . The band works well together and are experienced musicians having started Another Day Dawns over six years ago
9 . They consider the details - Their entrances and “ jams ” are choreographed . You will see various times during their gig when all the members band their heads at the same time while performing-not a coincidence ! Their website is professionally done and up to date , they have people at their shows to sell their swag , and they have sharpies for autographs .
8 . They absolutely have the stage presence of a national recording artists . The opened for heavy hitters like Sami Hagar , Trapt and Tesla in the past . They have already played large venues like Penns Peak and are doing so again this year when they open for Fuel . If they were intimidated by the big names in the past , they aren ’ t any more .
7 . Their latest single , “ Love She ’ s After ” , was produced by David Ivory and released in January . Just in case clarification is required-ye , I am referring to THE David Ivory who produced Halestorm and The Roots .
6 . That same single was mastered by Ted Jensen – he did some work on another disk you may recognize ; Hotel California by The Eagles .
5 . They aren ’ t afraid to grow and take chances - they put themselves out there . This year they auditioned for a chance at being the opening act for Bon ’ Jovi ’ s 2017 tour . I guess we will learn the results soon !
4 . Each member brings something relevant , excessive and unique
Spring 2017 to the stage . Here ’ s my thoughts on the members . * Dakota McGeehan , the lead singer is hot – and one hell of a vocalist . He has all the essential elements of rock and roll front man ( think Roger Daltry ’ s good looks and , Mick Jagger ’ s swagger and Steven Tyler ’ s stage presence ) He has long blond hair that looks awesome flying through the air when he ’ s jamming ’, and the way he can strut and dance while singing on stage engages the crowd and gets them on their feet . Dakota has a strong , distinctive singing voice with a grungy growl that I am particularly partial too . I don ’ t know if he was born to front a rock and roll band , but he ’ s definitely grown into one
* Nick McGeehan , the bands drummer , never stops . And by that I mean , never stops playing , never stops smiling , never stops watching , never stops … anything . He just never stops . He keeps the beat skillfully and the often complex combinations of crash and boom keep the drums interesting to even the least particular ear . I heard it said recently , that there is a rumor that Nick has three arms … tribute to his percussion performance . His gift of rhythm is what you hear , his joy of playing is what you “ feel ” . Tyler Ritter , aptly known as “ the shredder ” is one of those guitar players that look like the strings are surgically attached to his fingers . Every note , chord , change up and lead is executed with precision and ease . His solos have the power to make me stop everything and just watch him OWN that guitar . And Tyler is accommodating enough to step stage front so the crowd can see as well as hear his musical prowess .
*. Danielle Dubois is the newest and youngest member of the band . She is the bass player , and she ’ s a chick . Of course it ’ s smart and sexy to have a chick in a rock band . Now , if that chick happens to be musically skilled , rhythmically solid brunette who can hold her own with the boys ; well , then my friends , you have a winning combination . If you have ready anything else I have written , then you know I am partial to the bass . Because of that partiality ; I am most critical of the bass player ( and the sound
