R50: The Golden HighsR50 Bio
"The stage lights kick on...it's show time. Geoff throws you a 'Hollywood Dog,' Finn's fingers fly, Drew's giant white drum sticks go blurred, and Aaron's face is one big grin. The stage pours you a tall glass of rawk and you gladly drink down some of the catchiest tunes you've ever heard. You couldn't tear your eyes off the stage or your ears from the music even if someone set you on fire. Get used to it...because you're gonna feel that way until the mic stand finally finds itself face down on the floor, the guitar cables get yanked and the room goes black again."

Based in Tampa, FL, R50 is a well-schooled, high-energy rock outfit with memorable melodies, rawk-star riffs and hooks that keep you coming back for more. Compared to the likes of Foo Fighters, Goo Goo Dolls and Cheap Trick, R50 is quickly establishing itself as 'a force to be reckoned with' in the wake of their debut CD entitled "Rosco," and their follow up CD "The Golden Highs."
R50 was formed in late 2001 by singer/songwriter Geoff Abraham on lead vocals/rhythm guitar, and backed up by Finn Walling on lead guitar/vocals, Aaron Akers on bass and Drew Thompson on Drums. Where are they from? How did they all come together? You won't care and the past won't matter the minute you hear a CD or are lucky enough to see them live. As they say, the proof is in the pudding...and these guys can cook like a motherf*&^$%.
R50 is currently writing and recording music for their 3rd release scheduled for availability in fall 2003.
