"Give the Gift of Local Music"

Title: “Start to Back – Front to Finish”

Artist: The Necessary Band

Availability: at all of their live shows, excluding JimmyBuffett's Margaritaville,,


Price: $15

Sound: Going from the soulful funk to honky tonk rock ‘n’ roll, and settling down at a general classic rock sound, these guys should make any Wave 104 listener happy. The CD has a nice slick production, and at times very sax heavy, lending nods toward the yacht-rock movement. At some moments, there are long-winded blues jams that paint a picture of being at a small smokey bar in the city (probably not the city of Myrtle Beach). Fans of The Rolling Stones will love the second track, “Little Mama Rocks.” This CD is also recommended for fans of Steely Dan, Kool and The Gang, and The Eagles. This band can be found playing at a number of bars up and down the Strand on just about any given night.
