Apples don’t tend to fall far from their originating trees, and the same can be said for the two sons of three of Hollywood’s most well known. Cheap Trick‘s Robin Zander has his own namesake – a son who sometimes goes by his middle name “Taylor” to separate his identity from his father, but whose full name is Robin Taylor Zander – who has teamed up with none other than director James Keach and Jane Seymour’s son Johnny Keach on a thrilling new music project called SMILE. The quartet hailing from Nashville is comprised of Jacob Corenfloss (bass), Keach (lead vocals/guitar), Hunter Tidwell (drums), and Zander (lead vocals, guitar). With just the right amount of insane, raw emotion in their live performance, this band has the very real ability to take their music on into infamy if they go about it the right way. (Which they most certainly are, as they currently work on their first EP.)
SMILE will be playing a string of shows in Southern California, so it’s probably time to get in on the ground floor while ticket availability is still an option. Check the out on one of their upcoming tour stops, listed below.
