Doc Garret releases CD

Doc Garret, a longtime Gainesville rock musician, will perform a CD-release show tonight at Eddie C's.
"Closer to the Sun" features nine songs, all written by Alford, and is the culmination of several decades of music, love and the pursuit of inner happiness.

It also, incidentally, happens to rock.
With Brad Burns' blistering guitar work and solid performances by many notable local musicians, the album is a pleasant trip back to the '70s sound, when the guitar was king. The fourth cut, "Kyle's Song" - written for his son - is especially moving.

"I've been playing original music from the beginning, before it was cool," says Alford, who has been playing around these parts since the 1970s. "My primary interest was always making original music and having fun."

The current band includes Alford on lead vocals and guitar, Burns on lead guitar and vocals, Kevin Kennedy on bass and vocals, Pete Mambelli on keyboards and Eric "Bingo" Bingham on drums.
