Biography

UFB has been together as a band for 4 years. It was initiated to establish a creative musical outlet for its various members. Our musical influences range from the classic rockers of the 60s through and including each decade to the current rock & roll bands of 2000s. We relish the times when being different and fresh was a good thing, and we try to be different in everyway, from our original music sound to our original image and style of dress. We believe that performing music is different than just playing music. So, we approach performing as complete entertainers, giving something to look at as well as listen to. We connect with the listener by touching their visual, auditory, and emotional senses. Not afraid to be different, we have established our look as a blend of neon old school gangster chic. We are a work always in progress, always in flux, always pushing our creativity, always open to change. We love and live to create, perform, and enjoy music. Being goal driven, we are striving to be established, fulltime musical artist making a living by doing what we love. To be recognized as national artists with international music distribution is our ultimate goal. We believe in ourselves, and our music. With the right help in management and handling we know we can achieve our goals. If you like high-energy rock & roll we can guarantee a successful gig at every venue we play. You won’t leave a UFB gig disappointed.

Lyrics

Content But Wanting

Written By: Jack McKinley

I stand and look out the door everyday after you're gone.
I watch the cars and trucks drive by pulling my thoughts along.
I wonder what it would be like, to be out there,,,,
going one way or the other.

But fear of change, uncertain of my strength, keeps me,
on this side of the door.
This side of the door.

I sigh as my wonder turns back, to reality.
And I turn from the door to begin my day.
The thrill and the fear is gone.
I know there'll be no change today.
No change today.

But fear of change, uncertain of my strength, keeps me,
on this side of the door. This side of the door. This side of the door.

But I realize that every passing minute is a chance to turn it all around.
But I fear the consequences of my actions.
So I live each day of my life.....

Content But Wanting
Content But Wanting
Content But Wanting
Content But Wanting

There seems to be many more living life like me.
Your fantasy has become your reality.
Behind the door you find security.
So you go through life content but wanting.

chorus repeat 2x

Drive Me Away

Written By: Jack McKinley

Baby I don't think I can take one more day.

The way that you treat me is soon to defeat me,
you drive me away.

You're working to drive me away.

chorus:

Drive me away, drive me away, drive me away.

Drive me away, drive me away, drive me away.

Little girl why do you have to treat me so bad.

Cause you know I'm the best thing you ever had.

Something Like Life

Written By: Jack McKinley

Everyday should be like a new beginning
Because he can never, ever go back
Things have happened that he has to learn to live with
What happened yesterday in time he will accept

Unaware of what he seeks, when, all he needs is love
His will seems in control, but never from above
Looking for some answers, that are, always taken for granted
Looking forward, looking back but, leaving empty handed

Unjaded by life, oh he lives with reckless abandon
Testing life, oh to see if he will survive
Traveling roads, he may never travel again
Testing fate, as only a young man can

People all around us, damaged by events
Lives always, going so bad
Thoughtful inquisition, but life is what it is
Who do we think for the good times we’ve had

Unjaded by life, he lives with reckless abandon
Testing life, oh to see if he will survive
Traveling roads, he may never travel again
Testing fate, as only a young man can

Traveling roads, he may never travel again
Testing fate, as only a young man can

A Good Man Is Gone

Written By: Jack McKinley

It seems so surreal when I think that you're gone.
I just got started missing you and it's already been to long.
No one knows the will of God or why he took you home.
Maybe it's so the world will know a good man is gone.

The day the angels of God came and took you to rest.
I didn't see you leave but I watched as you left.
I tried so hard to keep you here and I gave it my best.
But only God's will gets done when we're put to the test.

How many times have I seen a good man go down.
Oh Lord don't you know we need to keep the good ones around.
There are so many ways they help to guide us along.
But we never see the need until we realize their gone.

Now my eyes ache form the tears that they've shed.
And my heart is in such pain for the loved one that has left.
But I'll never understand why it has to be this way.
Why the good ones, so young, get taken away.

The day the angels of God came and took you to rest.
I didn't see you leave, but I watched as you left.
I tried so hard to keep you hear and I gave it my best.
But only God's will gets done when we're put to the test.

A Players Life

A Players Life
Written By Jack McKinley
July 4, 2007

Feelin’ like the Gatsby on a summer Friday night
A radiance of pleasure dominating my eyesight
Despairing of a reason to politely tip my hat
I took a measure of Miss Pleasure cause us players…….
We do dat

Unfettered by the bindings, of poverty and strife
Puttin’ on the ritz before we hit the street each night
A players always playing even when he’s makin’ nice
He’s always seeking pleasure for her with his large….
His large device

The Coolers always coolest even when he’s in the heat
He’s lookin’ dapper with the patent leather on his feet
A pinstripe suit, black tie, and his Fedora Hat
He’s the C -to the G- to the street…..
Bring old G back

So that is how it goes, every time the stories told
The only change is that the players only getting’ old
He knows he’ll never stop until he’s layin’ on his back
All through a players life it’s always like this…..
And like that
