Deep Fried Radio helps musicians find gigs, market their services and music online and promote artists. Currently we are promoting Mary Sparks for weddings, ceremonies and other gigs that would like a hammered dulcimer player to perform.
Suddenly Sideways is a solid show every time! I love how they play a wide variety of genres and when they played Studio One it was no exception. They can play from mellow to ragin' sometimes in the same track. The band is comprised of some great Ashvillian musicians and I'm proud to know them and have them as friends. Jesse has supported Studio One since our opening and is a strong advocate and freedom fighter for the local music scene. I'd be happy to have Suddenly Sideways play any time.
-Studio One Manager
Price Range: $200 AND UP
Gig Length: 15 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
Suddenly Sideways plays a mix of originals and covers. Their style is a mixture of rock, blues, country, jam, psychedelic and funk.
The band has 2 experienced guitarists that trade lead and rhythm guitar duties as well as 3 different singers who trade lead vocals and share in three part harmonies.
Mary Sparks sings tunes like The Pretenders "Middle Of The Road" with Jesse and Mike taking lead vocals on cover songs like Led Zeppelin's "Down By The Seaside", ZZ Tops "Cheap Sunglasses" or a rocking version of Bob Marley's "I Shot The Sheriff".
Sometimes the band will incorporate Mary Spark's hammered dulcimer playing to create a unique jam atmosphere filled with improvisation and creativity.
Listen to all the bands tunes to get a feel for their sound.
Suddenly Sideways features four experienced musicians:
Brad Rogers - Bass Guitar
Mike Heinerth - Guitar / Vocals
Mary Sparks - Drums / Hammered Dulcimer / Vocals

All members met while playing in other bands and, in March 2010, they formed Suddenly Sideways.
