The name originated from the Stevie Ray Vaughn song by the same title. The band features cover of the greatest classic rock and blues tunes of all times. Recently, the band has added a very powerful female vocalist to bolster their repertoire of music. The band features tunes from the early Beatles all the way through time to Bruno Mars. The core of the band is still dedicated to the classic rock of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Cold Shot has a set of pure dance music as well featuring such popular tunes as What I like About You, Play That Funky Music, and many more. Since its inception in 1993, Cold Shot has played shows all over southeast Louisiana and the Northshore parishes. Clubs, fairs, festivals, biker events and private parties have all rocked to the pure sound of this band. Whether it’s a tune by John, Paul George and Ringo, the static charged guitar of ZZ Top’s Texas prairie, or the wailing electrifi ed harmonica of Chicago blues, this band plays it all Make sure you check them out at the Mississippi Mayhem Music Festival and Rally on April 5th -7th. www. Originally formed in 2011, the band has seen several changes in its lineup. A collection of original songs has stayed with the group, improving over the years due to the excelling performance of its professional and passionate present members. The sound has developed a hint of diff erent styles of rock including progressive, alternative, metal, grunge, and hard rock. Covering classics and some of today’s hit radio songs, the band, without taking the familiar aspect, gives these songs a LUNATyPE twist of refreshment. The band’s original member, Matt Dillon, captivates his audience with tales of everyday experiences told from several diff erent point of views. He is the vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter in the group. See our ad on the back cover of this issue!! Born in New Orleans, LA, Matt grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast area. He has been in many bands in his youth. Along the way, he has played diff erent styles rock and many venues that helped transform him into the musician he is today. Bassist, Dave Reilly, is part local pizza restaurant owner of R&B Brick Oven Pizza. He has been a very contributing member. He was investing time and money into the band when it fi rst began. It became clear that he, being a musician too, would have a permanent position in the band due his never-ending support and eff orts to keep this project afl oat. Dave, originally from the Gulf Coast area, lived several years in his youth in South Florida before returning to the coast. Diving into the restaurant business throughout early years, and now slowly becoming a stronger musician. This is his fi rst band. Drummer, Joey DeWitt, is owner of DeWitt Construction Services. He grew up in Atlanta, GA and moved to Long Beach, MS in 2006. He has always been passionate and enthusiastic about music. Overcoming the demons haunting his past, he allows music to fuel his desire to keep from falling back into those dark vices. He has also been drumming for many diff erent projects. Joey outshines any band that he played in before with his drive to further along this project. Amanda Foucault, vocalist, has a soulful voice. Originally, from the Gulf Coast area, she spent some time in Philadelphia, PA. She played in a couple other bands before joining LUNATyPE. Joey was also in another project with Amanda. Accompanying Matt’s vocals, Amanda brings nice enchanting harmony to the mix. She is the newest member to the band. LUNATyPE hopes to release some studio recordings soon. The band is in the process of building their Promotional EPK. LUNATyPE would also like to give its undying gratitude to those listen to and support the cause to keep our message alive. Can’t stop this unbreakable rock!
