Welcome to south Sarasota's most pungent cover band, "Karate In The Garage." There is no genre of music they don't like and there is no era they don't respect. Lead singer/guitarist Nick Williams is joined by the sweet fingers of Jimmy Reach on bass, Mixed Grill Mike Lewis on drums, Tyler "Tbone Pickens" Shiroda on lead guitar, and bringing up the rear is Kenny Goldstone on keys!
We're glad you asked! Collectively the guys (alongside much of the comedy feature film watching public) are big Stepbrothers fans - so when Brennan Huff (played by Will Farrell) realizes that he has just become best friends with Dale Dobach (played by John C. Reilly), Brennan enthusiastically inquires "Do you want to go do Karate in the Garage?" So there you go...We're just some great friends trying to play some music and make people happy.
If we're not laughing (or giving each other dirty looks for missing a key harmony part), we often have special guests join us mid-set...people that are part of a musical ecosystem of the greater Nokomis area that bring tears to our musical eye ducts.
