A evening of dancing and partying all night in Ackworth is not something that is usually on my agenda but, the Reckless Band kept me and a packed house on the dance floor. The Reckless Band even managed to squeeze in a birthday song and an invite to the mic for the birthday girl. I’ll be sure to stay on the lookout for the next time the Reckless Band is playing. You should do the same. If you have to be up near the Center Street Tavern you have a great option for live music and dancing.

Reckless Band Interview
What was the first album that you added to your personal music library?
[James] Cinderella‘s Long Cold Winter. I remember buying it when CD’s just came out! My next purchase was a CD player.
[Jason] The Beatles 20 Greatest Hits – I think I was 10 when I bought it on vinyl, and it was my first exposure to the evolution of the band and their music.
[Dennis] First album I ever got was on Easter in 1980, it was The Dream Police by Cheap Trick. It was leaning against my Easter basket.
What was your most recent addition to your personal music library?
[James] Winery Dogs’ “Hot Streak.” A buddy turned me on to them, so we saw them perform in Atlanta a few months ago and I was hooked!
[Jason]Foo Fighters Greatest Hits – I never paid much attention to their music until we started covering a few of their songs. Everlong completely blew me away. There is just so much passion and energy in that song. These guys are the real deal and are simply the best and probably the only true Rock n Roll band left on the scene today.
[Dennis] Most recent was Jason Aldean, Adele and Chris Stapelton
What was your first live music experience? Which venue and which artist(s)?
[James] When I was 16 years old, I saw the War Babies and Ugly Kid Joe perform at the New Daisy Theater in Memphis, TN. I had a great time and was getting really good at playing the guitar, so that concert experience solidified my ambition to become a great musician/bassist. I think I got my first stage dive that night!
[Jason] Eric Clapton Journey Man Tour in 1990 at The Meadowlands Arena in New Jersey. Awesome show! Clapton is one of my guitar heroes.
[Dennis] Bon Jovi and Cinderella, 1985, at the The Omni in Atlanta.
If you could cover one album in your music library which would it be?
[James] Just one? Errrr…
[Jason] The Eagles Hotel California, this album was the height of the band’s creativity and the songs still resonate today.
[Dennis] The Beatles Abbey Road or Pearl Jam – Ten
What artist do you wish more people had in their music library?
[James] Black Label Society.
[Jason] The Eagles – My all time favorite band
[Dennis] Foo Fighters
From which artists do you draw your inspiration?
[James] My influences include Billy Sheehan, Flea, Doug Wimbish, Zakk Wylde, Rachel Bolan, Duff McKagan, and mom…she used to play a mean piano!
[Jason] I pull from a big mix of artists. For me inspiration can come from any genre of music. My top pics would be: The Eagles, The Beatles, Eric Clapton & Foo Fighters.
[Dennis] In no particular order: Foo Fighters, Beatles, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker, Green Day, Cheap Trick, Motley Crue…to name a few
