The Old Adage is the Pizza of American Music. Sure to delight most. With their very plea-sable yet complicated melodic lines, heavy synthesizer based, beat driven songs, you get a 10 topper fusion between the 80’s, Today’s Top Alternative, Electronic, Pop, & Trap. Vocals comparable to the modern day wails of Haley Williams (Paramore), & the Classic high pitched range of Ann Wilson (Heart). Guitar Riffs deliciously mirroring Jack White, U2, & Heavy Metal combined, and riveting drum samples sure to appease the modern day hoodlum. Not to mention the direct line of decent. Lead Vocalist Mimi Chavez is blood sister to Guitarist/Vocalist Nino Chavez. Harmonies, and vocal dubs are a must accentuating the family ties between the two. Retro meets new age, ugly meets, drop-dead-gorgeous, and heavy meets pop. It is hard to Imagine a two piece that can rock as hard as the White Stripes & the two are nothing short. Literally.”

The Old Adage is a Brother & Sister fronted group founded in March of 2012. While stepping into a new phase and adding member James Humason, the group decided to take on a new name that included the three. ‘The Old Adage’ (Previously ‘Mimi & Nino’). The Old Adage released their first demo the ‘T.O.A.D.’ in November of 2012. The TOAD consisted of acoustic rock original pieces. Again, the group would be evolving, this time to an “Electric feel” with synthesizer/drum machine based songs. Co-writers & Composers (Chavez’s), recorded, produced and mixed their first ‘Official’ release ‘MATCHES E.P.’ released August 1, 2014. The Old Adage will be releasing new single “Red” August 28, 2015. Also recorded, produced, and mixed at their new (soon to be Public) Studio in Monroe, MI. “Little Butter Records”.

Also joining in on the night will be Mindtroll, Ludlow Ejacula, & Redfoot.
