ABOUT

This band no longer exists. I have a new band going called the Back Porch Band and we are seeking a lead guitar player.

Well, the band is back together!!!!! We are headed in a completely different direction now. With the addition of a DJ, we are going to be a hip-hop, dance, cover band. We are going to cover popular dance/hip-hop songs from the 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's, and up to the most current of dance/hip-hop songs. There of course will be a alternative rock influence in this sound, and only because it's going to come natural. Here is a short list of some of the songs we will be covering:
1. Bust-a-Move - Young MC
2. Rock Party Anthem - LMFAO
3. Funky Cold Medina - Tone Loc
4. We're Back - Lonely Island
5. Terence Darby - Wishing Well

We are going to keep using the same name for now, Nearly Surrounded, only because it still fits the musical direction of the band. Our goal and thoughts are this, we want people to get out of their seats and dance. Yes, dance in the middle of the floor. We've experienced in the past before when this would happen when we would play a popular cover song. Then once the music would go back somber, no one seemed to enjoy it anymore. So, with that said, we are only playing popular, danceable, hip-hop style songs to engage the audience and to get them involved. We do not want people to be bored when they go out to a club. They will have no choice but to have a good time, trust me........
