“Parables of Life" is available on iTunes, Amazon, and a number of other music outlets.

The band members flew to Las Vegas Monday where I met up with them, and found them on cloud nine.

“This is our dream. It’s all about the music,” said Marsh.

“We want to be able to share our stories with our fans,” added Holland.

The band members received a lot of attention from the crowd in their rock-style garb including teen reporter Lexi of totallylexi.com .

As the crowd reacted to Lynard Skynard’s performance , Alosi shared his thoughts with me about a song and music video that the band plans to release in a couple of months called "Louise Z Anna Hot Sauce.”

“If we were to go out on stage and play 'Louise Z Anna Hot Sauce' now, the crowd would go crazy!”

The big winners of the awards generated by fan voting included Luke Bryan who received nine awards including “Artist of the Year,” and Carrie Underwood who received her 11th ACA award, making her the most recognized artist in the history of the ACAs.

Miranda Lambert walked away with three awards, while fans selected Lady Antebellum for Single of the year and Group of the year awards.

American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina was chosen as New Artist of the year.

The award for each artist was a blue Fender Telecaster with the United States in white and the ACA emblem gracing the body.

Keep your eyes on Long in the Tooth whose songs are clean and hope is to bring a positive message to music lovers, young and old, around the globe. They hope to have one of those Telecasters in their possession soon! - EXAMINER.COM

As Long In The Tooth band member Jeff Marsh puts it, “we’ve reached a point in our lives, and in our music, where playing together is a bigger thing than our egos.” For Long In The Tooth, it’s not about promoting individually, it’s about inviting the audience to share in the energy and excitement of the music they create, especially on a live stage.

This rock band is a group of musicians who were raised on, and inspired by, a broad range of musical styles. Each influence layers together to create Sacramento’s unique sound known as Long In The Tooth.

Chris Holland — For Chris, the position of lead vocals also means lead showman. In Sacramento’s live entertainment venues, his enthusiasm for their music radiates and the audience can’t help but join in. His vocal training started at an early age in church choir, then transformed into a love for country and rock music. But at heart, Chris is a poet, a trait that also helps him as a lyricist.

Jeff Marsh — Jeff is the musical explorer of the group, searching out sounds in every genre that will enhance their classic and hard rock flavor. That may mean one song has a flamenco-rock influence while another might be edgy rock blues. Either way, Jeff has a passion for integrated sound with a focus on “rock fusion”. As the band’s primary music writer, he creates original tracks that express both soulful experiences and entertainment, thereby appealing to a wide audience.

Chris Alosi — Music isn’t a side hobby for Chris; it’s a rich family tradition. The son of a big-band era music leader, Chris mastered a variety of instruments including drums, guitar, trumpet and bass. This versatility can be attributed to the influence of musical greats from Elvis and Frank Sinatra to rock legends like AC/DC and Judas Priest. Throughout his music career, Chris has played many live music venues across Arizona, Nevada and California.
