Meet the Band

FYI: pop culture news

July 15, 2004|By Sarah Schaffer

Hometown: Baltimore

Current members: "The Tom," drums and vocals; Mike Young, guitar and vocals; David Chilcoat, saxophone, guitar, keyboards and vocals. Adrian Cox and Dave DeMarco alternate on bass.

Founded in: 1998

Style: covers and "adult alternative" rock

Influenced by: Barenaked Ladies, Matchbox Twenty

Notable: Though primarily a cover band, this act is comprised of accomplished musicians who've studied at places such as the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

BBFM usually mixes its good-time sets with several originals of the "adult alternative" variety.

Quotable: The Tom on what makes BBFM different: "Unlike a lot of bands that have really good musicians, we're not a player's band. We're just out there having a good time and playing music. We take what we do seriously, but we don't take ourselves seriously -- and people respond to the fact that we're not always trying to be cool."

Check out BiggerBetterFasterMore tomorrow when the band plays the Hard Rock Cafe. The show is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. Tickets are $5. The Hard Rock Cafe is at 601 E. Pratt St. Call 410-347-ROCK or visit www.hardrock.com.
