The Hannibal-LaGrange University Student Activities Council, in conjunction with WGCA, will host a concert featuring the band Remedy Drive. The concert will take place in the Parker Theatre of the Roland Fine Arts Center on August 29 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5.00 at the door and the public is invited.
Remedy Drive, a high-energy rock band from Nashville, TN, has David Zach on lead vocals, guitar, and electric piano; Timmy Jones on drums and backing vocals; Corey Horn on bass and backing vocals; and Dave Mohr on guitars and backing vocals. The band’s most recent release is a five song EP called “Light Makes a Way.” Remedy Drive is one of the hardest working bands touring today, consistently playing between 150-200 shows per year. For more information about the band, please go to www.remedydrive.com.
The original band, made up of Zach and his three brothers, began in 1998. They released six independent projects before their first major label release, “Daylight is Coming”, which was released in 2008. This put Remedy Drive into the national spotlight when their single “All Along” went to number 1 on CHR radio for seven weeks and into the top 10 of the AC charts as well. The video for “Daylight” was voted the number 1 music video of 2008 for the TVU Network.
In late 2010, after his brothers decided to leave the road and gave him their blessing to continue on, front man Zach re-invented and re-energized the band by adding Jones, Horn, and Mohr to the line-up. The new foursome’s die-hard community has shouted their approval from coast to coast. The new Remedy Drive has released a 5 song EP entitled “Light Makes a Way,” with fans already singing the chorus every night with the band.
Remedy Drive has made a name for themselves through their energetic and dynamic live show. Jones, a Memphis TN native and drummer, brings the charisma and passion that rivals any band’s front man. Mohr’s screaming guitars, combined with Horn’s thumping bass riffs, pave the way for Zach’s all-over-the-stage antics and non-stop interaction with the crowd.
“We’re four guys making music together from four different parts of the country— and we don’t have a plan B” says the band’s leader Zach. “We just want to keep making music and writing songs that shoot holes in the night sky, so that the light can break through the darkness. This new chapter of the band is an awesome adventure, and we’re excited to see where the road leads us, because music can go places where nothing else can. It can break down barriers, rebuild bridges, soften the hardest of hearts, and remind us to never lose hope.”
