DG’s is proud to bring Minneapolis-based roots rockers The 4onthefloor back to the Taphouse stage! Joining them for this incredible night of music will be Ames’ Great Caeser’s Goat and singer/songwriter Mace Hathaway of Omaha. Tickets only $8!
With the 4onthefloor’s third release, All In, frontman, Gabriel Douglas, wants the band’s next album to be driving and immediate; something that speaks to the growing audience of the band. “You don’t need a time machine to experience this record and this isn’t a kid playing with a laptop in their closet,” said Douglas. The band wanted to showcase their roots in blues and also the immediacy of post-pop punk with the hooks & sing-a-longs you’d find in all the best road trip anthems. All songs on this record were written with a notable high octane, and the furious delivery can be heard throughout the tracks.
The band worked with an American treasure, Erik Koskinen, for this record. “He’s got a great studio for live takes with a full band, and a great ear for what works,” said Douglas. The songs are quick, energetic, & fit. Douglas doesn’t write stuff he can’t play and he doesn’t play stuff he doesn’t mean, which you can hear in the immediacy of the songs.
Rock’n’roll has had many definitions. Some more strongly defined in the sound of the music and others by the soul behind them. Influenced by past moments of rock’n’roll by Neil Young, the Guess Who, Led Zeppelin, and including the modern variations carried on by bands like Brand New, Lucero, the Black Keys, and Murder by Death, The 4onthefloor is setting out to stomp on in the footholds of rock’n’roll and light the fires where they need to be lit. Rock’n’roll is alive and well in this band.
