1  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Introduce Yourself / JM Tribute band needs help on: November 28, 2015, 11:15:45 pm
Hello everyone,

It's been years since I've logged in but I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  I am Ted and I am the lead singer and guitar player in "Human Wheels - Playing the Music of John  Mellencamp".  We are a Tribute band based in New Jersey.  We're coming up on our 15th year in existence.  We've played hundreds of shows in the New York area, a few in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and even one in Indiana a few years ago.  We play mostly his classic hits and that still gives us the opportunity to do a 2 hour show... non stop.

We finally have a good agent and 2016 is looking like it is going to be a really great year for us.  We'd like to get back out to Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky... for that matter, anywhere in the midwest. Although our agent is actively contacting venues, I am reaching out to the people who know... you!  Where would you suggest as a great venue?  We're use to the large stages and lighting but we've done wineries and street festivals as well.

Anything you can suggest would be greatly appreciated.  We are on Facebook and there is a link to our page on our website.  So if you have a moment, please visit our website and like our facebook page as well.  www.facebook.com/humanwheelsrocks  www.humanwheels.net

Thank you very much!!!  Hopefully, with your help we'll be playing in your "Small Town"... (couldn't resist)...

I appreciate you listening. 

Sadly, the audio recordings were recorded long ago with different musicians and with a different recording process that left us unhappy about it.  The video's however are better and closer to what we really sound like. 

Since the appearance at B.B. Kings, we have changed more personnel and have performed at quite a few high profile engagements and have received plenty of wonderful compliments.

As the lead singer, I will never replace Mr. Mellencamp and that is not the intent, but I do my best to give the audience a show they will enjoy and play the music they love.

John himself sent a message to us while we performed at a festival in Red Bank, NJ and said he likes what we are doing and to keep up the good work.

We'll be out in Indiana for a few dates at Indiana Live! on January 13th and 14th.  If you're in the area, please stop by and say hello.

Thanks a bunch!

Ted K.
Human Wheels.

Hello Everyone,

I'm Ted, I am the lead singer and manager of "Human Wheels - Playing the Music of John Mellencamp".  You may have seen some of my posts in this community.

Human Wheels has been invited to perform two nights at Indiana Live! in Shelbyville on January 13th and 14th, 2012.  We will perform a two hour concert each night.  Playing all of his classic songs right up to his latest release. Hope to see some of you there.

In preparation for this, I am putting together a merchandise cache which will include, t-shirts, mugs, etc.  All of these items will have the Human Wheels logo on them with the words "Playing the music of John Mellencamp" on them.  I am hoping to sell the t-shirts and some other items at the shows, however I am told I may have some legal issues because John's name is part of the sale.  My disclaimer is that I am using the words "Playing the Music of...." in front of his name.  The intent is to promote the band Human Wheels and NOT rip John off.

I welcome your comments and any advice.  Please contact me here, via email or at [email protected].  If you would like to speak with me on the phone about it, send me an email and I will provide my contact number.

WE are very excited to be coming to Indiana and hope the folks out there enjoy our show.

Just a thank you from myself and the rest of the "Human Wheels" for the acknowledgement at the Kaboom Festival in Red Bank, N.J.   Sharon, from your camp, was kind enough to deliver the message and posters to the stage as we were about to start "Check it out".

Thank you for providing us with great music to play!

Hope to see you when you come to Newark, N.J. PAC.
