"Simple Man" is a hard driving, balls out number that is well produced with the mark of an experienced engineer behind the wheel. A strong clean mix that exceeds the musicians boundaries and talents as they push themselves to new levels that neither band member have been to before...."

Our single, "Simple Man" is currently playing on regular rotation on in Casper, WY on 100.5 KTED Casper, 93.7 KAZY Cheyenne, 104.5 KHAD Gillette, 98.7 KAAZ Laramie, 101.1 KROW Cody and 102.3 WIER in Burlington, Vermont.

Their most recent recording of “Simple Man” by Chad Gendason of Silverlake Studios, has taken the local, national and global music scene on reverbnation by storm. It’s catchy hooks, memorable chorus and thumping beat has fans of all ages craving another listen.

With over an albums worth of “All Killer and No Filler” material it’s apparent that they are a writing machine with a commanding live stage show worthy of a major deal.
CBS Channel 11/TXA 21 took notice and invited MESSER to perform two songs for the newly syndicated music show
“All Jacked Up” nationally, and just recently recorded another segment for the show's new season.
Some of their other highlights have been winning The House of Blues 2009 Talent Showcase, currently being played on 97.1 The Eagle in Dallas Texas, 106 The Bear Abilene Texas, Power 103 Abilene Texas, and placed 2nd out of 100 bands for the “Open for KISS” competition and has been main support for George Lynch, Arms of the Sun, Ugly Mustard, Dokken and FLAW. And on June 6th 2011, Messer performed at Vince Neils Music Relief Red Carpet event in Dallas, Texas.



MESSER started writing late July 2009. With only a hand full of shows since then, the Dallas, Texas group has raised the attention of industry and fans alike by the lightning fast rise of popularity, locally and nationally.
Together Javier Contreras – Guitar/Vocals, Dereak – Lead vocals, Kenn Youngar – Drums, and Maddox - Bass/Vocals provides somewhat of a local super group assault on the senses.
Messer’s industry buzz is not only from popularity of their former bands and live stage show, but from a cult following of their major motion pictures and reality show castings. This is a band that thinks outside the box and nothing is impossible and everything is attainable if you have the desire.
It’s easy to see from the reaction of the fans coupled with the size of venues they are playing, shows this is no flash in the pan band.
Seasoned, eager, dedicated and hungry to play, their memorable leads, catchy hooks and in your face live show is something not to miss.
