Interview with Redline

Who: Redline
What: In concert, opening for Trust Company
Where: The Icon, Pocatello, ID - map
When: Thursday, May 7, 2009.

Redline is a hard rock/metal band. There is a wide range of songs on the album, that appeals to a larger audience. When we are the headlining act, we’re able to put on a much more high energy show mixed with lots of effects, lights, and pyrotechnics. This is limited due to the time factor and another band headlining. We bring a lot of energy to the stage in a very professional manner.

Our songs and shows are directed to an all ages crowed, which have been developed over years of playing live with many big bands to many local bands. We have learned a lot on what to do and not to do. We have songs like “Fight,” “Breathe,” or “No Excuse” that are heavy and appeal to metal fans. Other songs like “Control” which has been played on radio stations throughout the west, appeal more to Rock fans. We do have slower songs that appeal to the ladies, like “Gone Away.” We had the opportunity to play this song live on KBER right after it was written. The response we got from this was huge.

The members of REDLINE:

Todd Page is the lead singer, flashy frontman, rhythm & acoustic guitars for the band. He writes most the lyrics and some of the music and keeps tight reigns on the musical direction and business direction of the band.

Glen Petty is the king of guitars, and backing vocals. He writes most of the guitar parts and all of the blistering leads, some very melodic and others to melt your face. He brings all the energy and personality you can handle in one show. He’s very outgoing and loves to interact with his fans. He also deals with PR for the band.

Jack Wininger is the backbone to this band. He plays the bass guitar and backing vocals. Jack is the mouthpiece for the band, he does all the booking and a lot of the PR work for the band. If you contact the band, Jack will most likely be the one you will be dealing with. He also handles a lot of the business side for the band.

Bill Page is the drummer. He deals mostly with the business end of things. He deals with the Management Company and Record Label. He also deals with the merchandise and live sound and effects for the shows.

As you can see each member has a lot of responsibilities in order to keep the band going, we all work closely together and each member is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.

Todd, Glen, And Bill are from Idaho, and Jack is from California. We all reside in Idaho at the present time.

We have played shows and venues from the world famous Whiskey a Go Go in L.A. to no name places in Boise, ID. We have played all over the west. In Pocatello we played the first Pokapalooza’s. The shows were huge and packed wall to wall with screaming people. We love the fans in Pocatello and the music scene is Great. There are so many very talented bands from Pocatello and Idaho Falls areas. We love to play with the bands from these areas; it's always a good time.

We do have lots of merchandise for sale both online and at every show. We have CD’s, shirts, hats, beanies, etc. We do give away stickers, posters and other merchandise at the shows and on radio. We give away lots of stuff and love to interact with fans so please come talk to us, we will sign anything for you.

The show at the ICON should be a great show. Its all ages show and is a suitable environment for most kids. Although some show do get a little crazy, this I do suspect to be one of those. We have an incredible lineup and the Trust Company is a very good band. They have very catchy songs and have toured with some of the best bands of our era. If you haven’t seen them live before, you’re in for a huge treat, great songs and high energy, it’s going to be one of the best shows of the year, and Pocatello fans never disappoint.

To be in the music business these days is very challenging and very rewarding, the day of the major labels owning the airwaves is a thing of the past. There are so many avenues to get your music out there and to build huge fan bases. People are always looking for new music and new bands to support. Music plays such a huge part in people’s lives, for a musician to be able to write a song and get it out there to be heard and have people like it is such a great feat. We would like to give props to any musician that is out there day in and day out, blood, sweat, and tears to give us the great music we all enjoy today. Keep up the great work and we will see you on the road.
