Members of local band Dangerous Spirit, from left to right, Tommy Thompson, Howard Yeargan, Dennis Peek and Alan Beavers, have been ranked in the top 25 out of 150 bands in the 99.5 KISS Unsigned Band Competition.
Local band competes in KISS contest
By Heather Todd Staff Writer
When local musicians Dennis Peek, Tommy Thompson, Howard Yeargan and Alan Beavers heard about a contest for unsigned bands on a San Antonio radio station, they wrote a song in two hours, recorded it and got it uploaded on the Internet in a week.
Dangerous Spirit, formerly known as Hat Trick, is now one of the top 25 contenders in the 99.5 Kiss Unsigned Band Competition after two weeks of on-line voting. More than 150 bands competed.
The group is hoping to get enough votes by midnight Monday to catapult them to die No. I spot, but they need help from local fans and listeners.
The contest, sponsored by 99.5 KISS in San Antonio and MP3.com, allows hard rock fans to judge Dangerous Spirit song ‘Time Bomb,” as well as 24 other songs from local unsigned bands.
Songs are judged on a scale of one to five, with five being the best.
To vote, log onto www.kiss-rocks.com, find the “unsigned band” icon, listen to the songs and submit your votes.
Voting started April 7 and will end midnight Monday.
If Dangerous Spirit gets the most votes, Peek said the band would get time at a local recording studio, 1,000 CDs pressed and will open for national acts, including 99.5 KISS concert events.
Dangerous Spirit formed in 1999, but three band members have been together for 15 years under various band names.
On the MP3.com website, Dangerous Spirit is described as a melodic hard rock band with a touch of Texas.
Peek said the band, which plays venues in New Braunfels, San Antonio and Austin, tried to blend the sounds of current rock with old, classic blues sounds.
Musical influences include bands like Creed and Aerosmith as well as Stevie Ray Vaughn and Storyville, Peek said.
Band members, who are in their late 30s and early 40s, practiced and played venues while
holding regular jobs.
Beavers, who plays guitar and drums and performs vocals, called the band a “serious hobby.” “This is what we really like to do. We have to do this to stay sane,” he said.
Thompson, who plays guitar, said even if the band did not win, the contest gave the band some
major exposure and helped members make some international connections.
“I got an e-mail from someone in Holland who was interested in distributing our CD,” Peek said.
Peak said the band, which plans to release a full-length CD, wanted to continue focusing on Texas venues.
