Winners of the April 2012 Masquerade Battle of the Bands, Bebop Cola is Atlanta's Premier Drunk Rock Band. Comprised of Nick Porter, Peter Travis, and Jason Blain, Bebop Cola is quickly establishing itself as one of Atlanta's most exciting new acts.
Bebop Cola started almost accidentally, first coming together in May of 2011. Before that, Nick had never written lyrics, their second guitarist had never written a solo, Pete had never been given a chance to share his bass lines with anyone, and their original drummer had never even played a real drum set. At first, all of this showed, and in spades. But as the days went by and the whiskey went down, things improved so quickly that after one hot summer practice in a basement, the members looked at each other dumbfounded and asked “When the hell did we become a real band?”
As time went on, it became apparent that their original drummer lacked both the passion and the drumming chops to stay with the band, so the beginning of 2012 saw him replaced with the lovely and talented Jason Blain. We don't know where it goes from here, but we hope you'll come along with us. First round's on you.
