"Honky Tonk Throwdown II, Night III"

“Ypsilanti based quartet brings a more modern swing to the festival. Afternoon Round twangs out pop melodies effortlessly, with driving grooves and vocal harmonies that draw easy comparisons to Wilco and Cracker.”
-PJ’s Lager House, Detroit

"The Afternoon Round @The New Dodge"

“Good humored guys...guitar driven...high effin energy!!!! Their sound reminds me of a young Elvis Costello (voice) meets the cooler songs of Gin Blossoms/Cracker. Definitely '90s college rock sound, which I have an affinity for. Their own description of their music is described as "sappy bastards but uptempo". Perfect description.” - motorcityblog

"Metro Times Blowout"

“Cool shit, a little Replacements-tilted country rock fare.” - Metro Times

Just fantastic...they take you home and they don’t pretend to be somebody they’re not.” -Adam Rey of Ann Arbor’s 107.1 on The Afternoon Round - Ann Arbor's 107.1

The Afternoon Round is a rock band. They make original music with guitars, drums, bass, and vocal chords with the conviction that "pop" is not a dirty word and that a hook doesn't make you a sell-out. They want you to not only hear our songs, but remember them.

That's why they have lovingly crafted each of their songs using only the choicest ingredients. They start out with fresh emotions translated into words and transferred onto recycled notebook paper. Next, they take refurbished chord progressions salvaged from Pop scrapyards from the past and future and transform them into shiny verses, glowing bridges, and blinding choruses. Finally, using new (and entirely organic), ideas culled straight from their frontal lobes they add the licks, harmonies, beats, and melodies to satisfy your discerning auditory cortex. Enjoy.
