The Parachuting Apostles - On Top Of The Airway
Posted 1/16/2013 7:00:00 PM

WMMR's Local Shots welcomes 2013 with January's Artist of the Month: The Parachuting Apostles. These guys carry a listenable classic rock sound while keeping you on your toes with full-bodied guitar chords, the sounds of a saxophone, and a tempo change here and there to switch things up. Today we played the track "On Top Of The Airway" off their latest EP Dishpig. You can follow the band through the month of January on their Artist Of The Month Page and on Facebook. Our first showcase of the new year is Friday, January 25th at Dobbs on South Street- catch the Apostles there!

In a band? Want to be involved with Jaxon's Local Shots?

For the Local Shots Artist of the Month feature, the Local Shots Podcast or for on-air consideration, we would love it if you'd send a CD to the station. Just circle one or two tracks that you like best or think would be best suited for WMMR. Put it on a CD and send it over. We try to listen to the CD's each day as they arrive, so it's easier for us to have a physical copy. Our address is below. Please include your website and any other information you would like us know know about your band. Details on upcoming shows are especially helpful.

Thanks very much! Looking forward to hearing it!
