"A Million Dollars"
Trying to keep
the world safe for rock íní roll is Hastings.
Back with their second CD titled A Million Dollars,
the band consisting of Tom Hastings (vocals), Randy Barnard (guitars), Shane
Davis(bass/keyboards), Kevin Walgate (drums) and the since departed from
the band Brian Best (guitars), continues to perform throughout the WNY
area. A Million Dollars finds the band much more focused and mature
in their playing and writing this time around.
Ready for radio play tracks
include Bang The Pipe the title track and Three Sides To Every
Story. Three Sides Ö guests Diane Kallay (Urban Renewal,
Kinship) on vocals for a sassy call and response duet with Tom Hastings
about the pitfalls of relationships. A clever and perhaps too truthful
take on those things. Perhaps the band should try moving this track as
a single. It is that good a song in my opinion. Check out their Website
for CDs and upcoming dates at www.hastingsband.com.
