Indie Band Of The Month (January): Common Rotation
by Connie Chang (ByngNews.com)
With a devoted fanbase on each coast, Common Rotation is about to take the music world by storm. A group dynamic like no other, this rock-pop-folk band has a truly original style unto their own. Singer songwriter Eric Kufs lays the foundation with insightful lyrics and unique musical rifts on the acoustic guitar, and is joined on lead vocals by the ever charismatic and talented Adam Busch. Rick Birmingham jams on the electric guitar, while Mike Uhler and Ken Beck provide the rhythm section on the bass guitar and drums respectively.
Their highly improvisational live stage show is a site to see, whether it be Adam manipulating the lyrics to appeal to the crowd, or the two lead vocalists suddenly getting their groove on. They will stop at nothing to get the crowd in the right state of mind, and so they should because nothing can prepare someone for this eclectic blend of entertainment.
Originally based out of New York, they were once 28 Orange Street, but alas during a show at the historic Wetlands Nightclub their first bassist, Chris Elsner Jr., jumped ship. They pulled Geoff Gilkes (who has since left the band) out of the crowd and he started playing with them. It was at this time that they decided to change the band's name, for what better analogy is Common Rotation for a band that has changed locations and members as they have.
There is nothing in the world that comes close to the experience that is Common Rotation; you just has to go along with the ride.
