Take four guys in your standard four-piece band, add in four floor bass drums, toss in songs that are in 4/4 time, and you get the 4onthefloor. This stompin’ blues band brings the infectious, driving rhythms of the delta blues and hoe-downs from Duluth, Minnesota. Back in March we brought you their thumping cover of singer/songwriter M.Ward’s “Magic Trick,” this time they are paying homage to the music that inspired them.
The 4onthefloor has four members. Gabriel sings and plays bass drum. James plays guitar and bass drum. Chris plays bass and bass drum. Mark plays drums, which includes – you guessed it – a bass drum. Yes, the name “4onthefloor” is meant literally: four bass drums, on the floor, pounding out the beat on each and every song. If the current dubstep wave has you yearning for a steadier, stronger rhythm, this band is for you.
