“Although pop quintet The Mid-Summer Classic have endured several significant line up shifts during the past several year, the core of the band-guitarists Eric Hebert and Aaron Trahan-have been there since the start at the tail end of 2008. "We were trying to start an electronic-styled band," says Hebert, "However, we started writing music with guitar parts and liked where it was going." After Hebert stepped down as frontman in mid-2010, vocalist Robert Dobbs obviously saw enough potential in the band to move from Malibu. California to Lafayette, Louisiana, and take over. Since then, The Mid-Summer Classic have been building up their name through constant local gigging and relentless social networking. "Just the other day, we had a guy in Brazil tell us he discovered us because he heard us on the radio. That's so awesome.”

“Since forming in 2008, LA's The Mid-Summer Classic have shared the stage with a mix bag of bands, most notably 12 Stones, Brokencyde, Rev Theory, Meriwether and Blood On The Dancefloor. Nevertheless the five-piece have gone from strength to strength with their accessible pop-rock style, one that is bound to please fans of All Time Low and We The Kings. With catchy, upbeat numbers like 'Never Let You Go', The Mid-Summer Classic's sound has urgency and is instantly favorable with their first EP ('Live While You're Young') showing plenty of promise.”

“... The Midsummer Classic has released one EP on iTunes, "Live While You're Young." The EP will be physically released on St. Patrick's Day (Mar. 17) at Nitetown in Lafayette with Meriwether and Oh Juiliet.”

“... The Mid-Summer Classic, a local rock outfit, has taken full advantage of the social media outlet, crafting a nicely designed site and putting forth a handful of tuneful, catchy rock tunes. These guys are the kind of fresh young band that folks who love the music scene here should keep an eye on.”
