Biography

Anyone who has experienced a 7k show knows the answer immediately when asked: When was the last time you had the time of your life at an interactive rock show? Hailing from Orange County, California 7k is an energized, spring-loaded, power-packed, fun factory waiting to erupt. This nationally touring melodic pop/rock trio has electrified audiences for nearly a decade with their signature brand of full-throttle interactive rock show. Each show begins with dazzling original songs, described as Maroon 5 meets Third Eye Blind, which display 7k’s aim-to-please attitude as well as their collective musical prowess. After a handful of their songs, the trio seamlessly shifts into volcanic overdrive and unleashes a seemingly endless string of sing-along inducing super favorites. In venues ranging from college campus events to dive bars and everything in between, 7k has perfected their specialty of performances bursting with fun. Regularly cramming four hour shows with songs by Lady Ga Ga, Garth Brooks, The Beatles, Bon Jovi, Black Eyed Peas, AC/DC and dozens more, the boys are committed to getting people involved onstage and having an absolute blast. The band’s three members Jeff Garvin (vocals & bass), David Neil Black (guitar & backing vocals) and Corey Manske (drums) are the best of friends with a universal focus: FUN. Jeff’s leading man good looks and boyish charm blended with his thunder nugget bass-playing style and full-tilt vocals magnetize audiences everywhere. David’s enchanting persona flickers like a tesla coil as he effortlessly hurls heroic, anthemic, melodic guitar riffs to riveted crowds anywhere. Corey’s cartoonishly engaging facial expressions hover above a sweat-slicked blur of machine-like precision and monster-like pounding as he cranks out the band’s heartbeat. Combining all the ingredients of 7k’s recipe for fun is an unparalleled experience that always ends the same way- everyone wishing it wasn’t over.

Lyrics

My High Life

Written By: Jeff Garvin

right now there's no one
nowhere i'd rather be
this day is perfect
like it's custom made for me

the sun burns through the clouds
to warm my face again
can't feel my doubts
i hope this feeling never ends

CHORUS:
ooh ooh
i want to spend my high life with you
lets go
before i hit another low
we've got to celebrate
there is no time to waste
before you know it's through
my high life with you

when i'm up this high
no thoughts of coming down
i can't remember
how it feels to hit the ground

right in this moment
we're invincible and free
right here, together
we are who we're supposed to be

[CHORUS]

we can slow down time
make the seconds crawl
we can keep on climbing
till there's nowhere left to fall
there's no letting go
we will never stop
you and i will rise
until we reach the top

[CHORUS]

Little Bit More

Written By: Jeff Garvin

you're a gourmet meal
and i want your dessert
the way you're feeding me
i'll eat till it hurts
you make me satisfied
down to my core
so what the hell am i still hungry for?

you're my perfect drug
but i'm withdrawal
I can't give it up, 'cause i get it up
and i want it all
you ring the sweat
out of every pore
and i need a fix
so i'm at your door

all i want is
a little bit more
all i need is
a little bit more
all i want is
a little bit more
a little bit more of you

you're a bad, bad girl
got me breaking all the rules
the way your flirt
and how you wear that skirt
it's a little cruel

you can be my DJ, baby
get me on the floor
let me help you spin that disc
a little more
until my wrist gets store

CHORUS


BRIDGE:
baby you're the one who set me up
got me all addicted to your love
cause I just can’t get enough

CHORUS

What You Do

Written By: Jeff Garvin

say the wrong thing
and hear me grind my teeth
make the wrong face
and shatter my belief in you

you don't know what you do
you don't know what you do

play the wrong game
and feel me lose my breath
say the wrong name
you're scaring me to death

you don't know what you do
you don't know what you do

i am exhausted
but i cannot go to sleep
i have a promise
that i can't afford to keep
i am betrayal
but i will not lose my trust
i am a fortress
that is crumbling to dust

i can show
do you want me to drive
i can fix it
makes me feel more alive
hand it over
that is what you get
give it to me now
i can fix it

The Wrong Girl

Written By: Jeff Garvin

this nameless yearning
arch enemy
would-be conquistador
of my identity
each clock a mirror
each face is mine
this was a love song
for a long lost valentine

is this a never-ending tape?
is there no hope of escape?
is this an empty promise?

the streetlights blow up one by one
as i drive by
i watch the sparks cascade
reflected in your eye
but through the windshield
we are melting mannequins
oil and rain refracted light
on human skin

is this a never-ending tape?
is there no hope of escape?
is this an empty promise?

the wrong girl knows
but won't disclose
the answers to these questions
but in the dust
her trophies rust
for lack of my attention

this rainy hilltop
plays a view to our whole past
i watch it fondly
as it's burning down to ash
but in the distance
blurry streetlights still explode
igniting others
on some other lovers' road
