On Boyce Avenue: American Acoustic Rock Band

There are so much stuff to read (from Wikipedia), see, watch and listen to while logged on in the internet, particularly on YouTube. Just this afternoon, I found out about this American acoustic rock band, Boyce Avenue of Sarasota, Florida. Out of curiosity and interest, I did listen to the musically talented Manzano Brothers (Alejandro, Daniel and Fabian) perform via their YouTube videos.

All I can say, now, after watching and listening to a number of their performances on YouTube, is that they're a cool band. They don't sound like a rock band that's noisy and irritating. They're just plainly cool and minstrelsy, to me. Alejandro, the lead singer, has that sustaining vocal that's kinda sweet and mellow yet natural.

As I continued listening to Boyce Avenue, I did a quick research about them via the accessible, free encyclopedia on line, Wikipedia. There I came to learn today something about this band (founded in 2004) which was completely Greek to me, at first. I learned that one of the Manzano brothers, Daniel, graduated from Harvard Law School. I'm wondering if he ever practiced his law profession at all that he opted to be a musician instead. It's none of my business, anyway, but I'm just curious, you know. Nevertheless, I'm glad and thankful that they have formed their band and have recorded songs that are cool to listen to. I really like their choices of songs and their own renditions. They're such a cool,feel-good band, to me.

I wish them all the best and thank them for being a part of the music world. Kudos and more power to them, especially when they're out there on tour in various parts of the world entertaining and inspiring others, too.

Question: Have you, folks, heard of this band, Boyce Avenue, before? If you want/wish, you guys can check on my previous blog post, Boyce Avenue: American Acoustic Rock Band, and watch them perform on YouTube. Thanks.

Until next time around. Take care and have a nice day/evening, everyone!-:)-chris a. quilpa, 30Jan2012
