March is Garage Rock Month

garage-rock

No matter how complex, technical or over produced rock n roll gets, it always seems to return to the simple sound of Garage Rock. Once again, we are seeing a resurgence in that style of music. The Black Keys won a handful of Grammys this year for their style of Garage Rock. They aren’t breaking new ground, but rather returning to the foundation of what the greatest music was built on. Simple three chord rock played loud by kids. It’s inspiring, energetic and most of all, fun. That’s what rock n roll was invented for.

Besides The Black Keys, bands like Japandroids, The Hives, The Strokes, The White Stripes, and more I can’t come up with right now, have formed. I would not be surprised, now that The Black Keys have won awards that we will be seeing more Garage Rock. I say BRING IT ON !! I love it. It has always been my favorite choice of music.

Throughout the month of March, I will explore the world of Garage Rock. The old, the new, the unknown. Hopefully I will inspire you to check out some new music and get you up and rockin.

Even better, picking up that guitar and starting your own band.

Nothing starts bands more than the Garage Rock genre. It was the precursor of the punk rock movement of the late 70’s.

This is going to be a fun month.

Of course, I am open to guest bloggers. Wanna add to the Garage Rock March Madness? email me you best blog post to steviegb57@gmail.com
