"Local Rock Spotlight: B-Nimble & The Boys"

www.curbmagazine.com
By Denise Faust

B-Nimble & the boys are one of the newer jam band project from Hopewell Twp. to enter our music scene.
"Our music produces a relaxing-jiving state of mind, blending the styles of folk and classic rock including jamout twists, harmonizing vocals and catchy hooks so we've been told by critics," McNally said.
Members include Jack-B-Nimble (guitar/vocals), Rob Turnbull (bass), and Kyle Mihalik (drums).
Some of their influences include Hank Williams, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Santana and various jazz bands.
McNally's first name is Jack, and they took B-nimble from the classic nursery rhyme. That is how they arrived at B-Nimble and the Boys.
"You gotta jive on all different kinds of music and take in every realm of existence that's what I try to put into our songs," said McNally. "We don't try to write in a particular style we just try to write good songs which come out as a flavorful dish of an Americana blend."
B-Nimble and the boys have an 11 song cd out entitled "Into the Minds." The disc can be purchased on their website. Check them out at www.B-Nimble.com or www.myspace.com/bnimbleandthe

For underage Penn State students looking to jam out to live music on a Friday night, there's hope with one of State College's newest music venues, Dragon Chasers' Emporium, 209 W. Calder Way.

Pittsburgh band B-NIMBLE AND THE BOYS and local band Junk will take the stage tonight at 9.

Operating mostly as a vendor for glass products, incense and tapestries, Dragon Chaser's is adding more acts to its schedule that are open to all ages.

Assistant Manager Abby Cain said Dragon Chasers' is looking to make these shows a weekly event with performances on the weekends. Although bands are in charge of their own publicity, cain said turnout for the shows has ranged from 50 to 100 people.

While visiting his sister in State College last semester, front man for B-NIMBLE AND THE BOYS, Jack B-Nimble, other wise known as Jack McNally, said he saw Junk perform at Dragon Chasers' and decided to book a show of his own.

B-NIMBLE AND THE BOYS formed two years ago in Aliquippa when its bassist Terry Tomei (junior-media studies), left Penn State's Beaver campus and their band Code Green to finish his degree at University Park. Both McNally and Tomei started their own groups after the split and headed in different musical directions. Being old friends from home, they are excited to share a stage once again tonight.

"Jack is a very good songwriter and musician, he's a driving force," Tomei said. "People can expect intense jams with an uplifting atmosphere."

MCNALLY describes his band's sound as a blend of folk and rock. He said they have many of the typical influences such as Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan to fuel their sounds. There's also a few surprises like Hank Williams and Waylon Jennings who slip their way in on some country-tinged tracks, he said

MCNALLY said he also plays harmonica on a number of songs, a skill he just picked up a year ago, and looks forward to exposing to a younger audience.

"We play a different style of music than what's popular today," McNally said. "People are getting sick of the same old rock songs. We're trying to make people feel good through positive music."

B-NIMBLE AND THE BOYS also have a new CD out, Into the Minds, which is still a work in progress.

Copies of the album will be available at the show.

By incorporating different instruments into their music, such as conga drums, it adds more levels to the music, McNally said.

"We're developing more of a unique style to our music," McNally said. "It opens up a lot more doors and you're able to do more things."

After leaving Penn State Beaver campus, Tomei said he picked up from where Code Green left off, in search of a funkier route with a new band.

The name Junk means Jam/Funk, and the band said they're still looking for new members to play keyboard and horns.

Having played Dragon Chasers' before, Junk will be opening the show with a number of improvisational songs in typical jam band style. At practice they can improvise for almost an hour in a kind of jazz jam, Tomei said.

"We're more exploratory with our improvisation very funky and liquidy," Tomei said.

All the members of Junk are Penn State students and enjoyed the vibe of Dragon Chaser's so much they decided to play another show.

"It's very comfortable, bigger, more open, a very be-yourself atmosphere, where everyone can sit around and enjoy the show," Tomei said.

Bio

check www.myspace.com/bnimbleandtheboys for latest show info.

B-Nimble & the Boys currently from Aliquippa, PA got their start after the dissmemberment of the band Code Green. The break up was unfortunate but Mr. B-Nimble was eager to keep performing. This was a chance to zone in on a more unique and original style of music and the chance to find more talented and more reliable musicians.

So that takes us to present time and the band is now performing out twice a week selling their cd "Into the Minds" at the shows. The main thing you gotta do Let the music be your description of our world, stories and experiences.

The band had performed all over Beaver County, PA, Pittsburgh, Erie and Cleveland a few times.

Some venues they have perfomred at include: Kendrews Lounge (www.kendrews.com), Hard Rock Cafe in Pittsburgh, Hopewell Twp. Community Park for Parkfest 2005 and chosen to headline for 2006, The Copper Dog (B-Nimble hosts the weekly open mic in Beaver, PA) Blue Violet Cafe (www.Bluevioletcafe.com.) Peabody's (Cleveland) and Dragon Chasers Emporium (located in State College, PA)
