74th Street Band / Press

“Arizonas Hottest Southern Rockers, 74th Street Band burns up stages like the Arizona sun! Mixing heart pounding rock, southern rock and outlaw country favorites, they bring crowds to a fervor and leave them screaming for more! Playing well over 100 shows a year, they've earned a dedicated and growing fan base through hard work and word of mouth. Returning to Cyclefest for the third time, 74th Street Band is the #1 choice for Biker events nationwide!”

“Some of our guys got to sneak in and check them out at one of the Arizona shows, they were pleased to see such a great performance by these guys. These guys are top notch professional minded, and extremely talented musicians. Some of us grew up on this kind of music, and quite miss those days. The band has a documentary styled video explaining the bands history, performances, and much more so we decided not to focus as much on it. We can say that we love these guys music, it is greatly done, and their cover performances are outstanding! If you are a fan of southern rock, country, or just great music become a fan of these guys today. I hope to personally swing by a gig at my earliest to see such a performance. To me 74th Street Band has taken some of the best classic rock influences, and made a working sound of their own keeping pure and true to the roots of their class. Love these guys check em out! It is awesome to see such good friends hold such a great group together over the years”
