Band Profile: Odds Against TomorrowPosted on October 21, 2013
Odds Against Tomorrow, a rock/metal band based out of northeast Ohio, prides themselves in being diverse and continuously strives to make a name for themselves and their music. To help create an unforgettable show, they use CHAUVET DJ gear to create a lighting experience during their stage performances. Read on and get to more about them!
1. How did you come up with the name of your band?
Odds Against Tomorrow just seemed to fit the current times we are in with regards to the constant insecurities from our struggling economy and government.
2. How many members are there?
Odds Against Tomorrow is comprised of five members: Matt Horner (lead vocals), Anthony Luedy (lead guitar and vocals), Shawn Miller (rhythm guitar), Brad Haren (bass and vocals) and Michael Petrak (drums).
3. What type of music do you play?
We are primarily a hard rock and metal band. However, our music reflects many different styles and influences including ballads, radio friendly material and the heavy, hard-hitting stuff. We recently released our debut album, “Ceremony In Death,” which you can download on iTunes, Amazon MP3, or here. The album contains 11 diverse, catchy and power-packed riffs with huge melody that will capture your interest.
4. What Chauvet fixtures are included in your setup?
We typically incorporate CHAUVET DJ lighting into our setup to add some awesome flair to our shows. The lights are compact and ideal for hauling, while the effects are amazing, bright and have gotten us tons of compliments along the way. We use three DJ Bank wash lights, three LX5 moonflower effect lights, two LED Mushroom derby effect lights and a Hurricane fog machine. Depending on the stage and allowed set up time, we also have a full T-Bar stand to attach everything to. Or, if we are in more of a rush, we simply use the “hanging arm” as a support leg and place them on the stage floor and angle them up — still produces amazing effects and “wows” the crowd. We have recently been turned on to COLORstrip and COLORstrip Mini wash lights — we can see adding those to our lighting experience.
5. Complete this thought: A show without lights is like…
A show without lights is like a bad dream — nobody likes bad dreams!
