Biography

Hello everybody out here in cyberspace and welcome to the official One Time Sonicbids page. Thanks for stopping by and checking us out. We know that there are a million choices out there in music, so thanks again.
Well, where to begin? I guess at the beginning! One Time is based out of Winter Park, Colorado. It's a growing community in the mountains and our main attraction is the Winter Park/ Mary Jane ski area. Music has always been a major part of the Winter Park culture and One Time was formed on that very principle. A bunch of dudes who were all looking to have some fun playing rock music for their friends. Well, as all things do, the music has progressed and the tour schedule has gotten much bigger. One Time currently tours all over Colorado, as well as Utah & Wyoming a few times a year. We average about 60-70 shows a year, even though we all have full-time jobs! Our music can be described in many ways, but we like to call it "Coutryfunkifiedrootsrock". Original music comes out every few shows and we have an extensive list of covers to choose from nightly. We get our influences from all over. Name a few? OK. Let's see. Johnny Cash, Widespread Panic, The Grateful Dead, Phish, Snoop Dogg, The Allman Brothers, etc... It's hard to name them all, cause there are so damn many and the list keeps growing everyday.
Over the years we have been honored to share the stage with bands such as, Bonerama, Cyril Neville & Tribe 13, Oteil & The Peacemakers, Melvin Seals & The Jerry Garcia Band, The Radiators, Ekoostik Hookah, Cecil "P-Nut" Daniels, Spoon Fed Tribe, Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormans, Eric Mcfadden, & Wally Ingrahm. One Time has also played with numerous local bands from Colorado. The future holds many things for us, including a new studio project in the fall and some bigger tours spanning the nation. Thanks again for checking us out and we hope you enjoy getting to know One Time. We look forward to seeing you all on the road and meeting new friends every stop we make. Thanks and remember "Enjoy Yourself One Time"!!!!!!!!!

Lyrics

Long Shot

Written By: Matt Holliday/One Time/Cecil Daniels on MIDI horn

Verse:

Where were you when I needed you to come through
You didn’t do one thing you said you’d do you flew
You want me to say everything is O.K.
But it’s not
No it’s not

Chorus:

It’s not O.K.
Not today
No it’s not
No it’s not
Not by a long Shot
Not by a long shot

Verse:

Take the money and run
Run the money and have your fun
No to only one
Still circle around the sun
You want me to say everything is O.K.
But it’s not
No it’s not

Chorus:

It’s not O.K.
Not today
No it’s not
No it’s not
Not by a long Shot
Not by a long shot

Verse:

Where were you when I needed you to come through
You didn’t do one thing you said you’d do you flew
You want me to say everything is O.K.
But it’s not
No it’s not

Thick beats and rocking guitars combine with 3 part harmonies and a great keyboard sound to open a whole new sound to all listeners.
