Music in the Park: Sterling Moniker
Thursday, October 6th, 2011 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Rather Park
University Avenue and 13th street
(across the street from the First Community Bank)

One of Huntsville's newest bands, Sterling Moniker, will be playing at Rather Park THIS Thursday! There is no charge for this event, and the band will be giving away free demos. Snacks will be on sale. You are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs. 

Sterling Moniker consists of the beautiful Miranda Hightower (vocals / lyrics), Charles  "The Joker" Herron (guitars / lyrics), John Clark (guitars), DeKeenan Bell (bass guitar / funkmaster), and Kevin Lotts (drums). They consider their music to be a combination of blues, alternative, and psychedelic rock revival.

Jess caught up with Miranda last week to talk about the band and their upcoming show. Miranda said she is a little nervous, but we know she and the band will do an excellent job. The band will be playing covers and originals on the 6th. Covers include music by The Beatles, The White Stripes, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens of the Stone Age, Franz Ferdinand, and The Cranberries. The original songs are a mixture of genres - alternative, blues, and psychedelic rock.

Miranda's favorite song to play is "Man With No Name." This is a Sterling Moniker original, and you may get to hear it at the show this Thursday. She describes it as a "haunting, soulful song with a 'walking through the desert' feel." The song is about Clint Eastwood, and it was written by Charlie. We can't wait to hear it. 

We also hear that there may be a surprise performance by John that will consist of a Hootie and the Blowfish song, but you didn't hear that from us!

You can listen to their music RIGHT NOW at indiemusichighway.com. Just search for "Sterling Moniker" in the Rock section.
