Franklin Bridge is a five-man band out of Philly and Jersey that isn't a household name yet, but after tonight that's all about to change. The group will be appearing this evening on the season premiere of the new reality competition, The Next Great American Band. The American Idol-esque show kicks off tonight at 8 PM EST/7 PM CST on your local FOX
station with two hours of audition footage to separate the jokers who
just want some TV face time from the serious contenders. And believe me, Franklin Bridge is serious with theirs.
Band members include Adam Blackstone, Curt Chambers, Rayfield "Ray Ray" Holloman, "Lil" Darrell Robinson and Wayne Moore and their music can be described as a funky mix of rock 'n soul. They have
played and shared the stage with Eric Roberson, Chrisette Michele, Jay-Z,
Vivian Green, Floetry and DJ Jazzy Jeff, to name a few.
Let it be known that we are Team Franklin Bridge all the way over here at SoulBounce. After you watch this video of the fellas doing a cover of the D'Angelo classic "How Does It Feel" earlier this year in Philly you'll see why. Curt Chambers is giving Mr. Archer a run for his money:
Yessir. Franklin Bridge has our vote. And as
the weeks go by, they will definitely need more votes and support to advance the
band through the competition. Tune into FOX tonight and every Friday for the next several weeks to make that happen. Let's go Team Franklin Bridge!
