www.IntermissionRock.com www.myspace.com/intermissionrocks The three members that make up Intermission rise from backgrounds and influences ranging from classic rock, radio rock, funk and blues, to hardcore and alternative. Coming together on what might have been a hint of fate, the members of Intermission are driven, passionate, and hold the work ethic that takes them closer to their goals every day. Pushing shattered hopes and broken dreams aside, Intermission is breaking out into this dream known as Rock and Roll on more than just a local level. Playing to large crowds at top venues such as The Big Easy, Fat Tuesday's Concert Hall, and The Hawthorne Theatre, Intermission has labeled itself as a very determined and promising up and coming act.
Intermission started in 2004. Cory Howard (Guitar/Lead Vox) set out to play music as his life's career. Two people, unmentionables, added the bass and drums to the band. They had some very good and interesting music. In spring of 2004 Intermission won the Lake City Battle of the Bands (Coeur d' Alene ID). Lack of dedication and progress in the band drove Cory to part ways with his original members and start over. Longtime friend Jack Bingle (drums) joined Intermission. He shares a thirst for success in both the music and business side of the industry.
In early February, 2005, Dale Strom (RAWK The Inland Northwest) had two bands cancel a week prior to round four of a local band competition called the RAWK Final Four (RAWKonline.com). Intermission, with no practice, no bassist and six days to put a band together, promote their first show as a ressurected band, sell tickets, and write new material, accepted the challenge. Brad Beeman enters the scene on bass. His funk driven melodic lines completed Intermission sound. With only one week to prepare, Intermission spent countless hours in the practice room writing and rehearsing what would be there first live set as the new Intermission. Although they did not win the competition, Intermission broke out on the scene as a tight act and hasn't slowed down since.
May 14th marked a milestone for the band. It was the first production they had hosted on their own. They rented out the venue and hired a pro-sound and light tech along with the staff needed for the event. Promotion included radio ads, newspapers, magazines and internet that covered the entirety of the city of Spokane, Washington. This show was the debut of the Intermission merchandise line which includes girl's and guy's t-shirts, CD's, DVD's, stickers, window decals, and more. The concert went enormously well. 450+ people were in attendance that night and it marked Intermission's arrival on the music scene. In only 6 months the band has managed to set off quite a buzz not only in Spokane but in surrounding cities such as Portland and Seattle.
Keep an eye on this band. They are on their way and they'd love to take you along for the ride!
