Off the Wall
Off the Wall is from a small town in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. The members include: Tom Goddard,Guitar/Vocals, Vern Ruttenbur,Bass/Vocals, and Shawn Frazer,Drums. Tom has been playing 25-30 years. He is a hard-hitting guitarist whose style is easily recognized by anyone who has ever heard him play. His vocals are quite unique. He actually did most of the over-dubs in 'Dreams', and his harmonies are always perfect. His lead solos, while remarkably fast, are flowing and quite melodic. This recording is a life-long dream of his. He has waited years to find a band that is as enthusiastic as he about doing original material. Vern has also been playing over 20 years. His off stage persona is quite opposite from his entertaining stage personality. He is a bassist with a very strong approach. He really pounds out a bass line. While primarily not a vocalist, his vocals on this CD are gritty and edgey and a compliment to the music. Shawn is the youngster of the group and brought a new element of fun to the group. A young man of just 20, he is an awsome drummer, very precise, dead on and really hot! He is destined to be one of the best.
