Before there was Spoken Word...before there was HipHop, Rap, or Rock...before there was poetry...before the dinosaurs and the primordial ooze... ... ... there was a rock (spaceship) (sneeze) (God's Thought) tossed about the forming Universe like a ping pong ball (spaceship), (sneeze) (God's Thought)...beaten and banged it fell to earth in pieces (landing zone) (point of origin) (Garden of Eden) to drop in the primordial ooze (landing zone) (point of origin) (Garden of Eden). It's minerals and proteins (passengers) (germ) (Sixth Day) mixed with the ooze (landing zone), (point of origin) (Garden of Eden) to form...a protozoa (passengers) (ape) (Adam). Evolving into humanity (colonist) (mankind) (society), these minerals and proteins (passengers) (germs) (humans) keep searching (searching) (searching) (searching) for the rest of the pebbles (passengers) (germs) (congregation) that fell from the forming universe (space) (unknown) (heaven). They gather in the back alleys (abduction) (collective conscience) (church) to be with their own ... ... ... Think of us as the pebble that won't return to the rock (unabducted) (mutant strain) (mouse that escaped the Serpent in The Garden) Patrick McGee (Guitar player/Composer/Lyricist/Vocalist) - Pat started playing music at the age of 9. He took lessons at local music stores, but is mostly self-taught in both playing and Music Theory. He started composing music at the age of 14. He's written nearly 50 songs and performed with numerous musicians for the past 15 years. He hosts the Original Music Open Mic at Brewed Awakenings: A Coffeehouse, (2636 W Central, Toledo, OH) on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month. His influences range from R&B to Modern Pop. Trina Stolec (Resident Poet/Vocalist/Lyricist) - Trina studied creative writing, drama and dance at The Cincinnati School for Creative and Performing Arts. She studied writing at a Four Week Rising Senior's Seminar at Berea College and while at The University of Toledo. She's performed in Community Theater and performed her poetry at numerous places since 1985. She's had more than 200 poems published in over 50 small press zines. Her influences are, of course, poets: Plath, Bukowski, and just about anyone else she can get her hands on. Logic Alley came together with the idea that Art should evolve. We try to stay true to that mission by giving every song whatever it needs, but not so much we smother it. Most of our songs are evolutions of someone coming up with an idea and others adding their own part or adding in until a song is born; that's why we play with 'guest' players so often. If there is a 'leader' in this band, it is each and every song we put together. Logic Alley tries it's best not to be classified, but we know it's gonna happen. We play rock, funk, jazz, blues, and anything else we can. Some songs will shake the shingles off the roof; others are soft enough to be played in a cafe. We sing. We speak. We have a good time trying to blow your mind to places it may not have gone before.
