5th Gear's Bio

Formed in early 2004, 5th Gear set out to play rock music that they grew up on, blending classic rock aesthetics with a modern rock mentality to create a sound that is edgy yet melodic and soulful. Their live set consists of the full throttle sound you expect from a band named 5th Gear but are also capable of slowing it down with a few rootsy acoustic numbers that are in a Zepplin-ish type of vein. 5th Gear's accomplishments include airplay on local top-rated radio station 103.1 "the buzz" with their song titled “crumble,” as well as a coveted invitation by 103.1 to their annual Buzz Bake Sale Battle of the Bands where they finished in the top 4 of over 80 bands. 5th Gear's song "Together In Vain" was selected to be on the Songsalive CD sampler # 7 which made its debut March 16th 2005 at the SXSW music festival and conference in Austin Texas. 5th Gear played at the 4th annual Thirsty Melon music festival and conference June 26th 2005, held inside the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom amusement park, which had over 200 bands on 10 different stages. 5th Gear continues to play throughout central and southern Florida with their own unique style of original southern-tinged mainstream rock as well as playing standard rock covers from classic rock to modern rock. So whether you want to hear some rocking covers or you want to hear original music, they will serve it up hot and loud! 5th Gears music is available by CD and by download on all major download sites including ITUNES! See the bands official website at www.5thgearmusic.com for direct links and more info on the band. As the main stay rock act every Wed night at Miami's South Beach staple, The Clevelander Hotel, 5th Gear is steadily building an international following at this diverse venue and is ready to take their music anywhere the road leads.
