THE NOT SO GOOD OL' BOYS / Press

“This reviewer highly suggests grinding your teeth into some of the grittiest electric country rock ever heard around town by The Not So Good Ol' Boys. This band definitely rocked the stage as one of the loudest performances ever reviewed of 2012 to which SouthSide enjoyed the raw yet emotionally deep vocals heard Hard Road and Darker Than The Devil (off their myspace page). This band's blood truly runs deep with the Southern rock sound that can be heard in other bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Johnny Cash, Creedence Clearwater Revival and more to which they draw some influences from their mentors' music and sound. SouthSide got chills from front man Zac on vocals when his voice vividly pumped heartfelt as well as emotional angst on the lyrics (listen to Nashville and Hard Road as good examples).

“As beer bottles were clanging and shots of whiskey were being slammed hard, The Not So Good Ol’ Boys gave us some of their best with “Just A Man” dedicated to the ladies at the place and “Old Chevrolet” that reminisced about past drinking skirmishes on the road. These guys may be from The North Coast, but certainly sounded like something out of The South with their brand of material. They made The Beachland Ballroom feel like an old fashioned western saloon complete with the crazy folks and loads of liquor. The Not So Good Ol’ Boys might be abel to hang with the big guns sooner than we think as they played with Cross Canadian Ragweed at The House Of Blues-Cleveland on June 13 and now alongside Shooter Jennings tonight, it seems like we may have another superstar country group from Ohio this time around.”

“Over the past few years, Cleveland's Not So Good Ol' Boys have become the go-to outfit when concert promoters need a special type of opening band for a national act. "We've been real fortunate around here getting to open for the Outlaws, David Allan Coe, Shooter Jennings, Cross Canadian Ragweed and even Ian Gilliam," said Cleveland native Rose, a 1985 Lincoln West High School graduate. "We're able to play on a rock or country bill. We can mix it up pretty well and blend it all together. A lot of the venues around town know that there's nobody around doing what we do. . . . We feel it's just old-school country. It's from the heart and the old days, the Merle Haggard songwriting school. A lot of bands will mix a little bit, where it's called Americana, but basically what we do is when we play in that old country vein, it's coming out of what I heard growing up listening to bar jukeboxes." ”
