I saw this band for the first time at the Main Street Arts Festival this year. I was really impressed. I heard many of the songs on their new album. So I bought it and have played it almost every day. What a great band and their from D/FW Texas.

I saw this band last Friday night in Dallas. This band is destined for success. I bought their CD and have already listened to it 4 times all the way through. Their live performance was amazing and the message in their songs made me think about many of the things that really matter in life. Thanks First Rush.

I have to say in the music world today I don't hear too many songs that move me the way I was moved when I saw The Road Less Traveled video. What a great song and a great message. Robert M.

We do practice in an automotive garage. Rock n Roll music and fast cars are a perfect match. Thanks for the comments.

I caught First Rush at the Keys Lounge Sunday for the Shannon Day Benefit. Wow what great music and all original. The "Road song" blew me away as it did most everyone there. It's really nice that a band of this caliber would donate their time to help with their friends medical expenses. D.Jacobs
