FREESTYLE BATTLE LIVE!!!
The world is rife with next big things, the majority of which come and go in a cloud left behind in hype and false hopes. Some build followings, left soon after to wallow for years in obscurity. There is occasionally the rare moment in time when hard work, perseverance and pursuing the simple path of artist development yields a viable, fan-fueled career that can last for decades. Push Play is on their way towards cementing their status as a band that has built their foundation via the latter. Nothing is more important than the fan for this band of four. From the beginning, they have nurtured each and every voice of passion that acts as the fuel in this constantly expanding fan base which simply borders on phenomenon. Singer CJ Baran shares, "As a band, we have focused on building a relationship with the fans. One by one, we have prided ourselves in making the time to get to know them, on a personal level whenever possible." Drummer Derek Ries adds, "They have been really loyal, and we try to make it a real experience for them. Push Play provides an intimacy in the fan experience from the moment we pull in to town, play the gig, and then interact with every one who came out after the show. It is all about them, and without their interest we ultimately have nothing." http://www.myspace.com/philbensen http://www.youtube.com/pushplayband#p/c/CDAFB4889BE43D45 http://pushplaysite.com/ http://www.myspace.com/emilyosment
