Syracuse Bands - True Grit

Rock Variety

True Grit plays: 70's style blues based rock like Robin Trower/Pat Travers/ZZ Top - right through the ages to more modern rock like Godsmack/Shinedown/Metallica. Original True Grit music is in the works currently.                                                                                              Formed in early 2005 - played until late fall the same year, then splitting up until summer of 2006 and going strong. Band members have been around the Syracuse music scene for 20 something years, playing in bands such as Tempter, White Lightning, Jagged Edge, The Gift, just to name a few.                                        Our strengths are; strong musicianship, ability to improvise, sound rehearsed -  but not overly polished to lose that "live performance feel". Some songs we stick to the original and others we interpret in a "True Grit" state of mind, and take them where no one has before.                 To quote a well known local musician: " Syracuse has been missing a certain sound for a long time, and I think True Grit is that sound."True Grit is:                      Mikey Ziemba - Vocals                                                                    Gary Millard - Drums                 Bill Mitchell -  Bass/vocals                 Dan Hill - Guitar/back up vocals
