Welbilt + Fools and Horses
Shortly after Welbilt formed in early 2002, Washington, DC radio station DC 101 singled out the band as the most promising independent in the region on the strength of blistering live performances and a self-produced EP with a contagious brand of upbeat modern rock. Next: a string of high-profile shows and national awards, a year of touring before an expanding fan base, and recording sessions in Los Angeles with platinum-selling producer Mudrock (Godsmack, Chimaira).
The resulting full-length debut, A Beautiful Mess, was released in December 2003 to a big thumbs-up from fans and critics. “Impressive songwriting…convincing vocals…sonically vibrant” raved the Washington Post saying “Welbilt delivers on its promise.” Fans loved the new tunes, instantly accessible yet built to stand up over time.
Nate, Buddy, Nick and Bill will spend 2005 touring behind A Beautiful Mess with the support of Budweiser True Music and the fans who make it all possible.
Fools & Horses has forged the edge of classic rock with the finesse of new British rock, redefining rock & roll in a way Baltimore has never seen. The bandÔø?s success can, in part, be attributed to the many rock influences this quartet claims. From as early as The Beatles and The Who to as current as Coldplay, Travis and everything in between, this seasoned unit rocks you with the same star qualities. YouÔø?re going to get sophisticated and ballsy guitars, a solid foundation of bass and drums, soaring piano and keyboards, and the honest and contagious lyrics, vocals and harmonies that have made Fools & Horses the hot commodity of Baltimore. These college-aged rockers are as visually striking as they are musically. Fools & Horses delivers each song and impassioned performance with enticing energy, leaving its audience smitten with this polished and professional group.
