Gas Money from 9:00pm - 1:00am
Gas Money is a new twist to the same old thing. Yupp, it’s a cover band. Yupp, they play other people’s music for your entertainment. Here’s the twist. A rock band covers a rap hit. 5 dudes with rock backgrounds cover power pop, then modern country. They’ll give a pop shakeup to the rock standards you know and love. When you’re not looking, they’re gonna pull one out of the “Holy crap I forgot about that tune” vault. Yupp, that’s right, stuff that not many cover bands in the Louisville music scene will do. Why do they do it? Because Louisville live music fans and supporters deserve something different, just for them, just because.Gas Money is comprised by some of Louisville’s best musicians, or at least they think so... Steven O’Reilly played drums for Heaven Hill upon arriving in Louisville 7 years ago. He has since played with many musicians around town but held the drum chair for Jefferson Tarc Bus for the last 5 years. He likes to do tricks and stuff, but if they can decaffeinate him, he might be an okay drummer. He does think a little too highly of himself, but that almost works for this band… Almost. Todd O'Meara has played guitar and fronted many great Louisville bands including Horizontal Boogie Band, Jefferson Tarc Bus and Willow Creek. He has played in front of many huge crowds, but no one knows how he weasled his way on stage. Todd brings a different approach to the band with his out of the box thinking and bacon fueled OCD. Liam Smith has bass brain for sure and sometimes, people aren’t sure what he’s talking about. He has been holding down bass grooves for a long, long… long time and for some of Louisville’s great bands including The Unknown, Fiveast and Blowfly. His approach to bass is all attitude, kind of like a bratty kid. He’s pretty good and he might stick around for a while. Chuck Weber is, well, you know, a singer and stuff. He fronted the Louisville band, Scary Uncle and has been screaming, uh, singing for a few years and has really honed his craft. With a versatile voice and high energy stage show – singer and stuff – he can pull crowds into his world and keep them there all night… As long as they bring doughnuts. Adam Young is a guitar hero in his own mind, and that’s okay. He was in Scary Uncle also and was a driving force behind the success they had. He is a well rounded player and can launch secret mission signals with his pedal board. The flavor he brings to the band is a breath of fresh air... Maybe he just smells really good.
