The Spots

Scroll down for interview and music download...

Birmingham is filled with cover bands, jam bands, blues bands, and the aspiring singer/songwriters. While The Spots integrate all of those genres into their sound, for the most part they're known as a "groove band". The Spots don't often practice or rehearse -- the idea is to gather good musicians together and see what happens. The Spots' sound lends itself for mood music at parties and bars, happy hours, weddings, parties, shindigs, receptions, and basically anywhere someone needs some groove. The Spots plan an album of original improvisational music. True to form, they'll set up some mics, hit the record button and then decide what to play. Nothing will be worked out beforehand.
