Green River Ordinance GRO's Up, Signs with Capitol Records
My good friend Denton Hunker (far left above, although normally he doesn't have 'crazy eyes') is living out the dream, his band Green River Ordinance having just signed with Capitol Records, home of The Beatles and Coldplay, to name a few. Over the past few years here in Fort Worth, they have earned the title Best 'Local' Band, and having heard scores of local bands, I can easily agree with it. Green River Ordinance has an excellent rock sound, and they put on a superb live show. In fact, when they play at a venue, it feels more like a 'big-time' band is there, and I feel certain that with the help and direction of the good people at Capitol, GRO soon will be that 'big-time' band.
Not that they are small potatoes now: they have already played on tour with Bon Jovi, including a stop at a 'local' venue, American Airlines Center. We're going to be headed to the huge patio at 8.0 tonight to rock it out with GRO at their signing party. It's going to be totally groovy.
If you want to check out their music, which you totally should, go to www.freegro.net, where they are giving away their first CD online as a free (and legal) download. And then, book it to iTunes and buy their EP, Way Back Home
So congratulations, boys, and buckle up! The fun has just begun, the fun has just begun...
