he members of Losing Adelaide recently returned from a three day adventure that had involved Floyd's (June 27th); Jacksonville (28th), and Gainesville (29th).

Obtaining new fans, receiving praise and several invitations from several bands (as far as Tennessee) they had performed with at each location, one would think that the four member group would be somewhat weary.

Heck no.

Gathered within the friendly atmosphere of Della's Pub and Grill, Losing Adelaide was present to wish the owner a happy birthday. Della was presented with several autographed and framed gifts from the band that are currently hung upon the wall. (Pics in album).

As 7:00 drew closer, Della's became fuller of patrons and their parking lot became overrun by vehicles due to the band's increased popularity. Dozens of people also entered wearing Losing Adelaide attire from previous shows.

Showing absolutely no evidence of their previous three day trek and hectic work week, the group played an extended set lasting nearly two hours with perfection.

With members...

Ryan Ribolzi - Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar
Mike Oelke - Lead Guitar, Vocals
Brad Waldron - Bass Guitar, Vocals
S.C. (Sam) Smith - Drums, Witness for the defense

their extended set included...

Here With Me
On My Way
Coulda' Been
Do Me Right
Ever Again
For A Moment
Stumblin Drunken Blues
So It Seems
Della's Birthday Song
Wrong Or Right
Open Your Heart
Open Highway
Someone More Like Me

Their sound was perfect, LOUD and CLEAR, making me wonder if the beer bottles and/or glasses were shaking behind the bar. Using their own light system truly enhanced their 'stage' presence.

Most importantly, they had fun often interjecting humor into their set or at times making fun of each other.

The band hung around several hours after the set had concluded, talking to, taking pictures with and autographing items not only for the fans, but also for the patrons. With such a smaller venue and crowd, it may have caught the Losing Adelaide members slightly offguard as they were very pleasant and outgoing. I especially had a great time talking to each Sam and Dave.

Having heard this group as an "undercard" and now with an extended performance was quite rewarding.

Additional play dates with national acts shall only increase their popularity and perhaps be recognized by the right person or manager towards an actual contract. Then again, I could also see them being a D.I.Y. group (with others following).

Grab their CD's and merchandise!!!

Regardless, Losing Adelaide is one of those local bands with positive focus and a promising future.

Q: Why would you sleep nine people in a single Howard Johnson hotel room?

A: Because you truly believe your music needs to be heard.

Losing Adelaide is a road worn rock band from Tallahassee, FL. Their catchy yet substantive style of music is a far cry from that tired, recycled rock sound you usually hear on the radio.

Four musicians from four decidedly different musical backgrounds unite to create a unique, infectious style of rock not often heard. And if it's their music that draws fans near, it's their unrelenting stage energy that keeps them coming back show after show. Whether playing for hundreds of fans or just for the bartender, this tenacious group leaves it all on the stage every single time.

From the bright lights of the stage to a dusty pole barn in the middle of the woods, Losing Adelaide will play anywhere that people will listen. It's that persistence that has carried them this far, and soon it will push them to the top.
