Biography

In 1999, Jacob Medley and Travis Weber combined their talents and formed a band. Bassist TJ Patton was the next person to join the band. After playing together with a drummer who didn’t quite fit musically, Matt Jones filled the vacancy and completed the Duff puzzle.

Duff’s style has been compared to that of the Beatles, Green Day and The Strokes…all groups who’s songs can be heard at a Duff show. Duff is also well known for their highly creative original music and entertaining live shows. With songs like Don’t Want To Fall In Love, Lemonade and 400 Bodies from their first independent self-titled CD, Duff is poised to be a tremendous force in the music industry.

The band has been very successful in Battle of the Band competitions, winning the Bowling Green State University Battle of the Bands and Z98 FM’s Rehab Music Showdown. Duff was also a finalist in the Cox Buzzard Blast presented by Cox Communications in Cleveland, Ohio.

Duff was named the Featured Band for October 2003 on www.ohiobandsonline.com. They have been booked with major label artists such as the Donnas and Reel Big Fish. They have participated in numerous benefit concerts for everything from the Concert for the Cure benefiting the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life, to scholarship fundraisers for the North Central State College Foundation.

The future looks bright for these four young men. With numerous performances and a promotional tour scheduled for summer/fall 2004 to support their second independently released CD, it’s only a matter of time before Duff rocks and rolls in a town near you.

Lyrics

Don't Wanna Fall In Love

Written By: Duff

I don’t want to fall in love
I don’t want to fall in love
It’s just way too hard and I’m fallin apart
Just cause I’m thinking of
I feel like I’m on the brink
As I vomit into the sink
My world is a buzz and it’s fading because
I don’t want to fall in love

Can’t you see it isn’t me,
The one you’re looking for
And I don’t know if I should go,
And walk through that door cause
In your heart it’s just a start
And it’s tearin me apart
I don’t want to fall in love

I don’t want to fall in love
I don’t want to fall in love
It’s just way too hard and I’m fallin apart
Just cause I’m thinking of
I feel like I’m on the brink
As I vomit into the sink
My world is a buzz and it’s fading because
I don’t want to fall in love

Can’t you see it isn’t me,
The one you’re looking for
And I don’t know if I should go,
And walk through that door cause
In your heart it’s just a start
And it’s tearin me apart
I don’t want to fall in love

Why can’t I remember
The things I used to know
The images I render
I don’t know
I don’t want to fall in love

400 Bodies

Written By: Duff

I’m fallin apart and makin the grade
Man I’ll be fine
Forget what I said I’m losing my head
And losing my mind
I don’t need to sleep and
I don’t need to keep things that I don’t want
And I don’t think I need livin oh man give away
I’m fallin apart and makin the grade
Man I’ll be fine
Forget what I said I’m losing my head
And losing my mind
I’m slippin away forgetting the past
I’ll meet you there
But I don’t think I need livin oh man give away
And I’m goin down
Like 400 bodies lying on a cold kitchen floor
Don’t push me around
And I see red
Do do do…
And I don’t think I need livin oh man give away
And I’m goin down
Like 400 bodies lying on a cold kitchen floor
Don’t push me around
And I see red
And I’m goin down
Like 400 bodies lying on a cold kitchen floor
Don’t push me around
And I see red
