BRENDAN MAC NAUGHTON ACOUSTIC CLASSICS,
HOMEGROWN GROOVES AND A MEAN JOHNNY CASH
Whether in an intimate setting or at a packed house in downtown Kansas City the intensity of Brendan MacNaughton's performance is contageous.
A veteran singer/songwriter MacNaughton blends flawlessly his well crafted original material with heartfelt renditions of covers ranging from Classic Rock ( Eric Clapton, The Beatles, Grateful Dead ) to Reggae ( Bob Marley, Toots and the Maytalls, Michael Franti) , from Jam Bands (Phish, Widespread Panic,Jack Johnson) to the Blues ( BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, James Brown) and to the bone versions of Johnny Cash classics.
Performing over 200 shows per year for much of the past two decades MacNaughton has opened shows for some of the biggest names in the business including Little Feat,North Mississippi Allstars, The Radiators, Joan Osbourne, LeftOver Salmon, Eric Burden and the Animals, and the Gin Blossoms.
Having been around the block a few times there has been no shotage of subject matter for MacNaughton's songwriting forum.With five cd's already in the vault MacNaughton will return to the studio in the spring of 2010 to break ground on a new project in association with the Cool Music Network lable.
With his soaring vocals, strong rhythmic guitar and electrifying performances Brendan MacNaughton continues to impress audiences and talent buyers wherever he goes.

"Me and Jim" play instrumental renditions of rock music from the 60'S and 70's. We use ventaged guitars and sometimes mandolin, performing familiar tunes at conversational volume.
Jim says his biggest influence in music and for that matter in life has been "Frank." And as for Frank, the single biggest influence that has formed his musical philosophy has been "Jim." That pretty much summs it up...
PURE DRIVE is a rock and roll cover band based out of Eldon Missouri. We play a wide variety of music, a few artist examples would be: tom petty, johnny cash, collective soul, smashing pumpkins, stone temple pilots. We love putting on great shows for our audience and friends! We pride ourselves on great crowd interaction and putting our own twist on classic music.
