Tangent / Bio

Two school chums got together in 1991 to start a band, called Tangent (named after a book by Greg Bear). Charles Dykes and Jim Nuchols recruited Tim Maines on drums and eventually found Brian Lemings and Gregory Marmon. The band performed in the Southeastern U.S.A. and developed a large following. Maines, Marmon, and Lemings left the band and the band recruited new guitarists, Lee Woodson and Jay Overcash. A new drummer, Jason Andrews, was taken on. After many more gigs including opening for Firehouse, Muzzachunka, Intruder, and Asphalt Ballet, the band fizzled out. Nuchols revived the band in 2008 with new players, Lynn Phillips and Allen Cain but the drummer (Cain) passed away, leaving the band hopeless. In 2010, the original band members met on Facebook and began negotiations to reform. In 2011 the band began recording new material and developing the live show that brought in crowds in the 90's. The band briefly changed the name to TANGENT MACHINE to differentiate from all the other bands called Tangent, but now is once again going by Tangent. Greg Marmon left the band before any new rehearsals could happen (? WTF?) and new guitarist, Jason Miller is on-board. Looking forward to playing for you!
