Thank goodness for Craigslist.
Without it, guitarist Kevin Langeland might never have met his bandmates in Paradise Outlaw and the Grand Rapids band with a Southern rock, country and blues vibe might still just be a basement pipedream.
Langeland’s successful online Craigslist search for fellow musicians sparked the fire that became Paradise Outlaw — Langeland, guitarist Kyle Gifford, singer Colin Tobin, bassist John Johnson and drummer Nate Vredeveld — which has since opened for numerous national country acts and even played in front of thousands at the B93 Birthday Bash.
The band, which considers itself more of a rock band than a country outfit, plans to release a new single this summer, with completion of its sophomore album expected by the end of the year.
Indeed, the group unfurled new material as part of its debut appearance this week for the HopCat presents Local Spins Live at River City Studios sessions, which was streamed live on Facebook Tuesday night for several hundred online viewers.
