Artist Spotlight: The Treats PDF Print E-mail
Written by Colleen Boltz   
What do the words rock and roll with smatterings of pop, blues, hard rock, punk and psychedelia. Answer: The Treats. These exact words are how Don Isham, the drummer for the band, described his bands music. There is not one exact genre that this band falls into, their debut album, Paint Your Blood, throws bits and pieces of everything you can imagine onto your plate. The Treats started making music in 2000 and are straight out of Madison, Wisconsin.

The band emerged one late night when Andy and Don Isham were playing and neighbor Tim Payne came over with his bass to join in.

"Andy and I used to jam around in our college house on weekends, softly sending our neighbors off to sleep. Tim was one of those neighbors, and came over one day to offer his bass playing services. We obliged, since Tim could get his hands on some cheap PA gear as well," Don jokingly states.

Well no joke here, the bass styling of Tim was exactly what the Isham brothers needed and a few late night jam sessions later The Treats were born.

With his dream career in shambles, Matt Costa believed everything he once had hoped for was now impossible.  After seven years of practice his goal of a professional skateboarding career which at one point was at the tip of his fingers, was now miles away.

On the brink of the most exciting point in his career Costa shattered his leg in a skateboarding accident.  At the time which seemed to be the worst possible predicament blossomed into a blessing. 

During his recovery Costa now turned to his guitar. He had received this guitar about the same time as his first skateboard.  In an interview with NowOnTour.com writer, Roy Atizado, Costa explains how he was always intrigued by music.

Music Review: Plow PDF Print E-mail
Written by Whitney Bennett   
Mixing new and old has always confronted artists with some difficulties; but when you combine methodic rock and roll with new age lyrics, you get something more than unique.

Although I like my music loud, I am not what one would call a typical fan of the “rock and roll” genre.  However, I found myself listening to an up and coming rock band, Plow. Plow has recently produced a new CD this past year titled “Feel What I Mean.”  This CD follows the band’s first successful album “Trial by Stone.”  

Plow is made up of three members: Jake Rieboldt on bass guitar, Ross Fletcher lead guitarist and Jeff Pond on drums and lead vocals.  With the success the band has had so far, it is clear they will be going places.  Within Plow’s rock songs you will hear a distinct undertone, different than any other rock group you may have come across in the past.
