Fayetteville’s Tom and Hebron brought some sophisticated pop/rock ‘n’ roll to the Showcase proceedings. The band is steeped in the sounds of the early to mid-’70s FM goldmine of Elton John, Wings, Jackson Browne and the like. Brothers Tom and Hebron Chester are joined by bassist and singer Clay Johnson and drummer Nick Fernandez, as rock-solid a rhythm section as we’ve seen so far.
Judge Mandy McBryde wrote, “They really get folks movin’ and shakin’. Once upon a time, Billy Joel met Ben Folds Five.”
Grayson Shelton heard “Good dance music. I danced with a girl and a dude… Happy Valentine’s Day.” CT wrote “This band is tight as hell, cool as ice. I like this.” Guest judge Shayne Gibbs wrote, “I’m the worst dancer I know, but this makes me wanna dance.”
