Nobody Jones and Bamboo Forest

 

Nobody Jones and Bamboo Forest at Fresh Brewed Coffee House

Touring band Nobody Jones and local Myrtle Beach band Bamboo Forest share the stage on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at Fresh Brewed Coffee House.

Tip Mosley and Josh Douglas began playing music together in 2007. After flowing through different bands, they decided to join together in creating an alternative rock band named Nobody Jones in October of 2010. By May 2011, Nobody Jones recorded their first EP with the help of renowned producer Jeremy Ferguson at Battle Tapes in Nashville, Tennessee. With only two members comprising Nobody Jones, Tip and Josh knew that they needed another member to join them as they ventured back into the world of live music. Sam Perry moved from Colorado to join them and play bass for Nobody Jones. Together they are writing music with hopes of releasing an LP by August 2012.

Nobody Jones strives to bring a fresh sound to alternative music but still hold true to their roots of the music they listened to in the 1990s. Influenced by bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Tool, Nobody Jones brings together an assortment of alt rock characteristics to their music that is sure to please the alt rocker’s ear.

 

Bamboo Forest started in January of 2010, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with Jackson May (guitar/vocals) and Will Copeland (bass/backing vocals) writing songs together. By April, they found a drummer, Jeff Whitener, and by May, they were playing local shows with a complete setlist of originals. In October of 2010, they recorded a 5-song EP A Few Songs. Since then, the band has been playing high-energy shows and writing new music. In June of 2011, Jeff left the band to go to college. One week later, they recorded their 14-song album, Indecisive. The band picked up drummer, Timothy Burlinson, and a few months later, Guitarist, Zach Thomas. The last week of December, 2011, they went on a 6-stop tour with punk band, Treephort, of Marietta, Georgia.
