Members of the band "Stitch Pig Brothers" traveled through Little Rock Friday night. Drummer Dann Norris from the Cincinnati, Ohio area and Band Member Joe Riley, from the Indiana Tri-State Triangle, spent the evening in town. They are traveling with several musicians, in route to an upcoming concert at a casino in Oklahoma.
Stitch Pig Brothers have a single in rotation on Nashville radio, titled, "Gator's Tail." Norris describes the band's sound as "Swampy Country Metal Music." They have a one of a kind stage show that includes a 1953 GMC with red lights, and features a massive drum show, complete with gongs and a wall of amps.
When Norris and Riley are not working with Gator's Tail, they perform on the Casino circuit in a tribute band that features Tim McGraw music. They have been a part of that for about five years. Norris says he has been in the industry a long time and enjoys having the opportunity to make music.
We spoke for a moment about women in the industry. Norris says their influence remains a little understated. "Women like Chrissie Hines and Pat Benatar are a lot better than a lot of guys. If you have got the balls to get out there, I think it is great. You have got to open it wide up and push hard."
