CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 7 - June 13, 1996.47 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Steppm Out Try Fighting Gravity on the Rudder deck June 14 By Kristen Seal When is the last time you caught a band recently featured in Rolling Stone (RS 730) performing in your very own neck of the woods? Round up all your dancing bud- dies and hit the Rusty Rudder on Friday, June 14 and perhaps you can say someday, "Year, well I saw Fighting Gravity before they were big." The Richmond, Va.-based col lege circuit band has been per- forming for nearly seven years along the East Coast to crowds whose reception is always to let loose and dance. After sharing the bill with such national acts as fel- low Virginia natives the Dave Matthews Band, Colorado's Big Head Todd and the Monsters, The BoDeans, The Kinks, The Con- hells, A Tribe Called Quest, .24/7 Spyz, Eek-A-Mouse and Julianna Hatfield, the music industry began taking notice of the seven-member ska-influenced band. The founding members of Fighting Gravity (formerly known as Boy O Boy before changing its name due to trademark problems) met at Virginia Polytechnic Insti- tute. The current members are lead vocalist Schiavone McGee, bassist and vocalist David Peter- son, guitarist and vocalist David Triano, keyboardist Eric Lawson, drummer Mike Boyd, trombone player and vocalist John Utley and sax player Karl vonKlein. Having been described as a funky Hootie and the Blowfish, Fighting Gravity performs all original music described as a pop/rock/world beat fusion. The band's latest release, "forever=l day" was produced by John Alagia who produced the Dave Matthews Band's pre-"Under the Table and Dreaming" release "Remember Two Things". "Right now some label will say we're not angst-filled or guitar- driven enough," guitarist Triano told Rolling Stone senior editor David Wild. "But at some point it will be our strength." Fighting Gravity prides itself on its danceability and fun-loving nature - after all, excited crowds of over 250,000 listeners per year across college campuses cannot all be mistaken. The band has proven itself a regular at the University of Virginia and Washington College as well as a host of other colleges from Vermont to Georgia. Fighting Gravity will take the stage at the Rusty Rudder at 9 p.m. on Friday, June 14. For more information on the performance, call 227-3888.
