Still working on that hot first release.



Green Light District is the product of the right musicians coming together at the right time. Bassist Ben McFarland and guitarist James Fitzgerald have been making music together since their high school days, and it shows in the way the intricate bass lines and catchy rock guitar riffs melt together. The two wrote music and jammed with many other musicians for several years, all the while searching for the right musicians and the right time.

A chance meeting in summer classes at Iowa State University brought keyboardist Horace Tantang into the mix. Horace has studied the piano since the age of four, and his mastery of the instrument is a brilliant component of the Green Light District sound. Horace is also a talented background vocalist.

A second chance meeting in the Music Hall at Iowa State brought drummer and music major, David Miller, in to finish off the roster. A product of intense music theory study, David is a spectacular combination of inspirational creativity and disciplined precision. His finely-tuned skills glue the band together.

The roster finally complete, Green Light District quickly caught the ear of central Iowa. After only 2 shows and 5 hours in the studio, 105.1 channel Q in Ames, Iowa featured Green Light District's song "Lunch?" on their Iowa Unsigned program. A couple weeks after their radio debut, Green Light District was invited into the 105.1 studio for an on-air interview.

These guys love music, plain and simple. They love capturing their audience night after night. Green Light District has a passion for pure, raw rock and roll.
