THE BLUES HAD A BABY
One Side Later is an original band with one purpose: to bring their unapologetic breed of blues/rock to other music lovers. With the showmanship of Buddy Guy, musical diversity of Led Zeppelin, and internal groove of ZZ Top, One Side Later produces a concert atmosphere that demands and receives attention (typically in the form of hoots and hollers!)
OSLs original tunes, not just their chops, set the band apart from their peers. In a given One Side Later song, a listener would be hard pressed to find cheesy cliches (lyrical or musical). Instead, expect to find innovative blues based guitar lines combined with rousing vocals paired with intelligent lyrics. These self proclaimed fan pleasers threaten not only to blow speakers, but also minds.
WORD ON THE STREET
One Side Later is not without their accomplishments. In 2005, the band took top honors (1st place) at Mooresvilles Applefest Battle of the Bands Contest. Mooresvilles Applefest draws over 1,200 people to the southwestern corner of Indianapolis and is held annually.
Also in 2005, One Side Later performed a limited seating showcase for Atlantic records, Warner records, Revlis records, and Madison House records at Joe's Grill 4. With OSL originals One of a Kind and Fake It receiving attention from national record labels, its no wonder that fans leave every gig humming and singing infectious One Side Later tunes.
ROCKING THE FREE WORLD
In July of 2005, the band released: Live at Barley Island. The live record was captured at Barley Island Bar and Grill (Noblesville) and mixed by Jerry Hall of MMC Studios. Live at Barley Island, t-shirts, and additional recordings by Mike Perry of Lightning Struck Studios, are available at live shows and the bands official website (www.onesidelater.com).
One Side Later is no stranger to the airwaves of Indiana. The band has appeared on Kokomos channel 16 in conjunction with the Kokonuts Televised Band Contest, and consequently ranked first within the viewer responsive internet polls. The band also had the privilege to be musical guests on the Ball State University television production: BSU Late Night. In addition to BSU Late Night, OSL has rocked the radio waves of 91.3 WCRD as part of the popular college radio show: The Hybrid Hour.
BORN IN A SMALL TOWN
The small amount of success that One Side Later has seen would have never occurred if it were not for the support of their home town of Knightstown, IN. After 4 years, the band continues to give back to their community through playing annually at local festivals such as Jubilee Days and Halloween on the Square. Acoustic shows at the local coffee shop are not uncommon, either. In March of 2005, the band hosted a Rock for Riley that included 4 local artists and donations to Riley Hospital for Children.
Along with the bands official website (www.onesidelater.com), One Side Later is also an active participant in the local organizations of Indy Music Net, Indy Bands, and Indy Speedway's Bands. Along with these local affiliates, OSL holds national registered accounts with MySpace, PureVolume, JamBase, and Clear Channels New Music Network. These resources, alongside with the infamous OSL mailing list, creates a web presence that rivals any other local artist.
At any given show, One Side Later will perform a mixture of original music and covers. Shows range from 45 minutes to 4 hours. Although the band prefers to play with a provided house PA, they can carry their own PA and sound technician.
The most fun you can have with a dejembe, One Side Laters acoustic shows are both fun and informal, lasting no more than two hours.
