We are a Dallas-based cover band comprised of four snappy individuals
with a penchant for diverse, entertaining and interesting music.
We've also practiced our respective instruments a little.
years as professional musicians across a diverse range of styles
in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth music scene, Reality Bites has arrived
with a single mission in mind: Play what we want and play it like
With over 30 years of collective experience as the formidable rhythm
section for one of the area’s top variety bands, we have a developed
a solid reputation for professionalism, finesse, and musicality
in our roles. Each of us initially did our tour of duty at the renown
University of North Texas School of Music before relocating to Dallas
and working with some of the most well known artists in the business.
Across our various endeavors, we have performed at a number of the
most popular events and venues including the Fort Worth Main Street
Festival, The Denton Arts and Jazz Festival, Taste of Dallas, Taste
of Addison, The Cattle Baron’s Ball, Margarita Society Ball and
the Dallas Heart Ball. Despite a busy performance schedule, each
of us is involved in music education in the D/FW area along with
recording, scoring, and producing. Oh yeah, and one of us is even
a psychotherapist. Sometimes you need one of those in this business.
Scratching your heads yet, wondering: “What DON’T they do?”
Read on…. In April of 2006, we decided it was time to do our own
thing, seeking to craft a cover band that is unique, edgy, and artistic;
performing those tunes we know we all love, but might have slipped
your mind in the last few years. But even more important, taking
those tunes to new places with our own crafty signature. Our eclectic
repertoire covers a wide range of 80’s pop classics on through the
90’s and today with songs by artists such as U2, The Cars, Elvis
Costello, The Police, Simple Minds, The Cure, Tears for Fears, Coldplay,
Peter Gabriel, R.E.M., The Killers, The Strokes and many, many more.
What we don’t do is what everybody else does. Think of it as JACK-FM
with real live people dancing about. Or MTV — back when they played
videos. If you’ve had your fill of the same old regurgitated version
of “Brick House” or the latest sugary, pop du jour flavor clouding
the airwaves for barely the next minute or so, then you just might
be ready for Reality Bites!
