POURING RAIN

Here is some Info on our Band & the Members

POURING RAIN is a 4-piece original rock band formed in 1998 by brothers

Cary & Bob Moore after a good stint at playing covers in an AC\DC rock band

 called ROLLING THUNDER, which was fronted by another brother Derek Moore.

Starting off as a 3-piece and then moving on to the 2-guitar sound the band has

 a pop,rock,punk sound which varies from song to song.But with a band filled

with 80s rock fans we don't go out of the circle to much. a 12 song CD out called

PISSIN DOWN which has some early roar stuff & some later milder stuff but it

all falls under the pouring rain category. A lot of it is just flat out as Bob only knows

 one speed on drums, but some songs we managed to slow him down a bit which

added some contrast between the songs so you don't get bored with one style.

If you like the crunch of 2 guitars then Clive Matamua & Glen Parslow will

show you how its done.Labelling Pouring Rain a guitar band is an understatment

 as there understanding of 2 guitars means there catchy riffs & basic rhythems

 are one, and tend to resurface later on

 (probably 4 in the morning when your trying to sleep)
