Ted Donat here - Regional Director of the Mid-Atlantic Sweeps.
As some of you know, for the last two years I have been playing with
a band called The Slow Burn. We are a four-piece two guitars,
bass and drums and we play original rock and roll. To give you an
idea of our style, here is our "elevator pitch" (hey, I'm a
marketing guy!): "The Slow Burn is melodic rock with an edge, for a
generation raised on great songwriting and punk attitude, spanning
the chasms from John Lennon to Kurt Cobain, Bob Marley to Aimee
Mann, Joe Strummer to Jeff Tweedy." (Hopefully you recognized at
least one of those names! If you recognized them all, go have a
mojito, you pop-culture savant, you!)
Personally, we are all professionals and Dads, so we are muy
simpatico when it comes to the work-family-music-life balance! We
really enjoy each other's company, and I think that really comes
through in our music.
Here's some news for you:
Please join us on August 29th at the legendary Arlington venue
IOTA! Local favorites Debris will be opening for us. The show
starts at 8:30. We need a good turnout for this show, so if you
haven't made it down to hear us yet, make this the one!

OUR NEW CD:

I am really proud and honored to be a part of this, and I truly feel
that it is the best musical document I have ever been a part of.
Because of my long history of a cappella singing and producing, I
take the vocals on any recording I am involved with very seriouly,
and this album is no exception.
