Playing Friday at Ribfest 2012
COME BACK ALICE’S BIO
Structured largely from improvisational influences, the band found their unique sound by allowing each member to artistically express their individual style. “Everyone said you couldn’t combine modern stylings with funky drums and, of all things, fiddle and still end up with an audience friendly genre”, says lead guitar and vocalist Tony Tyler. “…but it’s that unexpected combination that makes people quickly take notice and groove along with Come Back Alice.”The Come Back Alice line-up includes:
Front man Tony Tyler, hailing from Macon Georgia, is no stranger to being a musician on the road. Tony helms the group with his hard hitting guitar, harmonica, organ and soul-inspiring vocals.
Bradenton’s own Dani Jaye has a sweet yet devilish stage presence only matched by her intense fiddle styling. To watch her play is nothing short of captivating. The gift of a violin from her aunt at age 13 planted the seed for her enveloping love of music, making her into the musical powerhouse she is today.
James Varnado is by far one of the best drummers around! Growing up around the musical hub of New Orleans, Louisiana, he has a true gift of setting the groove and the audience in motion with his love for entertaining.
Johnnie Barker, born in Macon, Ga, has a unique bass styling that focuses on being highly technical while integrating funk. His approach to unifying the musical flow and groove set by percussion is simply outstanding.
Something to look forward to in the music business. that’s a promise!
Come Back Alice will be touring in europe as well as in the united states to support the upcoming album by end of the year 2012 in a city near you!
