Welcome to the 90's... Again.

Biography

Utilizing Kansas City's most reputable musicians, from some of Kansas City's most successful bands (Pomeroy, Odds Even, G-13, Grand Fiasco, Seattle, Load Point Pull, and more) 90 Minutes aims to musically kick you in the nuts and take a few names on the way out.

90 Minutes is a band that performs songs from 1990 through 1999. The 90's began a trend in diversity and made several forms of underground music acceptable to the general public. In the year 1992 alone, Grunge and Rap music were making one of the strongest musical impacts the world had ever seen. Artists like Public Enemy, Nirvana, Ice Cube, and Pearl Jam were setting the stage for revolution all across the United States. Riots erupted in Los Angeles, The President and Vice President waged a personal war against a rap/rock artist named Ice-T for writing a song about killing cops, and Vanilla Ice was forshadowing and paving the way for terrible and amazing white rap artists to come in the future.

Milli Vanilli would win and lose a Grammy all in the same year and the birth of Rap/Rock once pioneered by bands like Aerosmith and Run D.M.C. and Anthrax and Public Enemy was taking form in the face of groups like Limp Bizkit, Kid Rock, Rage Against The Machine and 311. Metallica would become a radio friendly band by putting out their most comercially accepted album to date while making heavy music an acceptable format to add to radio playlists everywhere.

Major faces in music would take over the world, and die violently from suicides, drugs, AIDS, and West Coast vs. East Coast shootings.

With all that said, dammit, isn't it time some of that kind of fun was put back into music again?

Granted while living through the 90's most of us felt like there wasn't really much good music going on then either, especially toward the end of the decade. But looking back through the catalog of radio hits, founder Tyson Leslie found some rare and valuable musical gems that you no longer hear on the airwaves of Clear Channel and Viacom radio.

Bands like Sister Hazel, Tonic, The Marvelous 3, and Collective Soul have been put in the bagain bins and sold for 1 cent on eBay to people who've long since forgotten about them when it comes to buying new music. Yet every time these artists roll through town on tour (since most of them are still together) people flock and sell out the clubs in which they appear proving that people still want to hear songs like "All For You", "Open Up Your Eyes", "Freak Of The Week" and "December" are songs people still definitely want to hear and are still willing to shell out about $25.00 to see and hear the songs that were the soundtrack of their high school years.

2Pac and Notorious B.I.G. albums as well as Nirvana albums continue to fly off the shelves as the younger generation discovers their legacies. Some bands are even reforming and touring together this year like Alice In Chains, or forming alliances like Rage Against The Machine and Soundgarden to form Audioslave. 90 Minutes is a live salute to the music of the 90's. 90 Minutes plays the music you remember, forgot about, and wish you could hear again. 90 Minutes is THE band to see this year.
