"Movement Never Lies," "One Step Ahead (So Dance)," "The Good Years," & "The Steel Under My Belt," are the newest songs featured on our latest EP/LP/Demo/Album. We did our best to make music we enjoy and love to play. It's dancy, rocky, catchy and there is definitely something there for everyone. Let us know what you think and we hope to see all of you soon.


Ed (Drums) and Kyle (Vocals & Guitar) started the band in a slimy, run-down garage on Hope Street. Needing a bassist Ed got in touch with Dstar who was, at the time, deeply involved in fraternity life and basketball. Dstar sent some music samples to Ed and soon thereafter came for an audition. Facing stiff competition Dstar got the part as lead bassist, but continued to wear basketball shorts and Adidas running shoes to practices. One day Dstar decided he wanted the spotlight and so began to play lead guitar. Danny, a brother of Dstar's, was introduced to fill the bass guitar shoes and became the final piece to the Play It By puzzle.

Play It By continues to write songs and play as many shows as they can. Nearing graduation the band plans on moving up to San Fran in hopes of spreading the PIB sound. They currently live and rock in San Luis Obispo and practice in a garage next door to the original "slimy run-down" garage mentioned above. This garage isnt much better but serves its purpose. Play It By has formed a unique sound over the past 4 years and intends to play for many more... they might need some more money to do this though...
