The Ride Theory: A Recipe for Success

Published: 2004-07-08
As children of musicians and music lovers they were exposed to many different musical genres. As a result the Hamilton, Ontario band The Ride Theory was formed out of respect for the sounds of older rock music. Not wanting to be pegged as any one particular type of band, The Ride Theory have created a recipe for who they are:

? cup The Kinks
? cup pre 1967 Rolling Stones
? cup Beatles
? cup Yardbirds
200 grams Hendrix
2 tbsp The Who
2 tbsp Deep Purple
1 tbsp The Ventures
1 tbsp The Doors

Of course, the above recipe is by no means carved in stone. There is always room for a little more of whatever the band decided to throw into the mix.

When The Ride Theory performs it's like a beautiful mixture of an all you can eat sound buffet.

The young band – only two years old – is making their first trip to the East coast. The tour which begins this weekend will cover Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Quebec City.
