3-2013. I have been asked be seveal places of business to get my band up and running again.I loved hearing this from these business people. Well I have just did that. Since coming back from Nashville,Tn. 3-22-13
I have been contacted and we have set into motion a plan to build my 41SOUTH band. And I said. "Hell YES".Lets do this..I am bringing in Geoff as my other Rhythm Guitarist and vocalist,Thank you Geoff,Thanks for being a part of this amazing band I am creating.I will mix Southern rock and blues together on lots of my music I will be writing and playing. Thats a big part of my SOUTHERN ROCK MUSIC WITH A BLUESY STYLE And sometimes a rough edge to a song.Just to make it have the feel I'm looking for in a song.I learned that trick from my friend Ronnie Van Zant seeing him as a front man in the best band in the world.Lynyrd Skynyrd. ....so adding that player was to complete my 3 guitar power trio. A Keyboard player .Then me as rhythm guitarist .vocalist.songwriter and band business agent and creator of "41SOUTH".With all of us together we have many new contacts we never had before.This is the making of something very possitive and healthy. I thank all of you Amazing musicians who are now a part of 41SOUTH.Its great seeing other musicians who love music and creating music like I do.I thank you God. For this awesome Blessing.Big Nick.
Every musician loves a little cash in there pockets for playing an amazing show.I know the bar makes money off there nights of business,I also know that a band brings in those people to pay for the business.thats just a fact.I play to the people and show them a show they love.and come back for time after time.Thank you my awesome fans of our music ,We all love you for your support in our dreams in the music business.
Big NickValceanu:RhythmGuitarist LeadVocal's/Songwriter.
Big Nick is the Originator of "41SOUTH" here in Evansville,Indiana way back in 1987. and is a rhythm guitarist.Lead vocalist as well as songwriter who loves to have fun playing some great sounding music.Southern Rock.Classic rock,New Country. Maybe a few older ones too.And he really like's to do his Originals the most.We do several of his Originals in these styles.He's always thinking about music that he wants to create for his band.And he does that a lot.Its always fun.And thats how he wants to keep"41SOUTH".
Big Nick has a great personality and likes meeting new friends that love Southern Rock Music.They say he lives and breathes SOUTHERN ROCK MUSIC and after you hear one of his songs you'll see why.He not only plays the music he loves,He feels it, And you can see that when he's playing music,It's in his soul.It's in his face and hands,as he plays rhythm guitar and sings another of his Originals.He also loves to play some sweet sounding Blues that just makes you feel great listening to.Playing both these great styles,and mixing them both into one another is always a very good thing That he loves to do a lot of these days.Thing's are looking very good for this band. ROCK ON "41SOUTH STYLE".Oh YEAH.
I believe that Original music is a very important thing for any artist or Band.We will very soon be ready to show everyone what my Originals sound like.We have now opened a new chapter in our music that we will be doing.I know the people will love the three acoustic guitars going at it in some of our songs.That always sounds great.Come see what I'm Talking about and have some fun with us here at 41SOUTH. I think you'll like the show case that We will be having when we do these shows. No ones done a show like what I'm talking about.This is going to be so much fun just layed back great sounding Originals.One's that I have been writing for over a 5yr period.Some really cool stuff here,just wait and see what I'm talking about.Then you be the judge.
As a songwriter I try very hard to write my music/songs like several of the bands I grew up listening to on the radio as a kid.I think we will have a following that feel the same way about this kind of music. We also do Covers.
Classic Rock.Blues. New country.
LynyrdSkynrd,VanZant.MarshallTucker, Allman Brothers.Blackfoot,Jimi Hendrix .ZZTOP.CCR. EricClapton.Free.S.R.V.KennyWayneSheppard.Pink Floyd Toby Keith. Zac Brown Band. and many more great band covers. And amazing songs to love.
We will keep things fun.And were always willing to learn new songs as they come along.I am a true SOUTHERN ROCKER BY HEART AND THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE. I can promiss you that,Thats just who I am as a person,Very easy to get along with and always true to what I truely believe in.Being a songwriter is fun.You can create anything to write about.Even a story you want to tell people.Perfect music to write,for when doing SOUTHERN ROCK MUSIC.I say that because. I feel the music I play, Not just play note after note, without feeling. Thats why I think its very important to add a Blues guitarist.Thats the feel of music I'm talking about. Blues mixed with Southern Rock. Some very amazing music that people love to hear as they try to relax a bit.Maybe even take there lady up on the dance floor a few times as well.Thats always a good thing if you know what I'm sayin. I call that awesome music.
The main thing is to Sound Good.Love playing for 1 person or 100.000 people.Show the people the artist that you are.The music will speak for itself. Be Differant than any other artist or band,and have fun keeping things Original.And having a blast doing what it takes to keep the artist in you alive and hungry for more great sounding music.And most Importantly,................................................................................................... Having some "AWESOME FAN'S" loving the music we play.Originals or Covers.To me that is very important.I take that very seriously everytime I'm on a stage playing music, And anywhere I play a show with my band.I love the interaction with the Croud,It makes the night go by so much easier when you have that connection with the Crowd your playing to.The feeling is "AWESOME".There's nothing like that feeling, and musicians love it even more, every time they get up on a stage.Just ask any musician and they will tell you this.Your kinda hooked, As they say from the first time you get on a stage.Thats the way it was for me.
Believe in your Dreams.
They do Happen.
But, You do have to work very very hard at it.
If this is what you truely believe in. Then do it.
Spread the love.It's all good.
41SOUTH will be gigging the tri-state. I can't wait to see everyone at the show's.I will be posting them. I will up load two songs off my first cd very soon.So everyone can hear us play here on bandnut.com.
I love Southern Rock Music and the way it makes me feel. I got that feeling about southern rock music after seeing Lynyrd Skynyrd play way back in 1977 at a place called the whippin post.That was in Augusta ,Ga.I got a once in a life time chance to meet Ronnie Van Zant that night and it changed my life forever.I have a great respect for this style of music.I always will.I have a very big respect for Ronnie Van Zant for showing me what SOUTHERN ROCK MUSIC should sound like.That's why I play Southern rock music. In my band "41SOUTH".I have became friends with Artimus Pyle the second drummer from the Skynyrd band.He's awesome and Its great knowing a man that can really really rock those drums...Then a few months back ,I became friends with Bob Burns the very first drummer from the Skynyrd band.Two amazing people I call my friends.and they still play the music they love...I remember hearing Artimus tell me a few months back when I was in Nashville.Tn ..He said.Keep playin your music my friend.After he shook my hand.To me that was so cool.and now knowing the founding original members of Skynyrd is truely a Blessing.I thank God everyday.I kinda think R.V.Z has something to do with this from the heavens in some way...But Thats just me....I just smile real damm big and say.This is the good life....Charlie Daniels is the next one I want to meet.He's one amazing person.Hope God hears my prayer....Like I said, Believe in your dreams,to make the future.and love your past and your life.
Hell if I can't show my Originality as a musician, Then thats the day music will stop for me in that bar and I will move on and find other gigs that Respect what I do. Music is how a person really shows the freedoms that we have as me and you all know.We tell you a story, And then make sure its interesting enough to capture the crowds attention for that moment.I always make sure it something everyone has done or have went thru.Thats just my life and the way I live .its also the way I write my music.these always are just a little of the songwriter, In the song in some way..Thats what a song is.I have a bunch of great stuff that will be coming out very very soon.Songwriting is, and always be one of my favorite things to do in this life I live as a musician.God has helped me and blessed me like this.I am forevr thankful for this blessing.Thank you.Big Nick Valceanu"
