Trinity James & Big Bad Story
After yet another band break up... Trinity began to hit the 9 to 5 hard in hopes of saving up enough money to take his show down to Nashville. While at work one day he heard the news that his boyhood hero Jon Bon Jovi was looking for a band to open for him at the city's arena The Kohl Center. Last minute, he submitted two songs from his solo demos that he'd been working on over the last couple of years with Cudasigh and Last Crack frontman Buddo. This was a Friday.
The following Monday while Trinity was at work he received a phone call from the University of Wisconsin Music Committee. They liked his songs and informed him that there would be a battle of the bands the following Monday to determine who would open for Bon Jovi. This was good news, except Trinity was without a band. Trinity called up Buddo and informed,him of the good news and his perdicament. Buddo who played drums on and produced the Trinity Demo said he would ask the guys in Last Crack to back him. That evening Trinity recieved word that it was a go. The chemistry was evident from the first meeting. Cds were burned and songs were learned. After only 3 rehearsals the band was off to play the battle of the bands. Amazed by the Cracks ability to learn so much material in such little time, Trinity dubbed them"Big Bad"
The battle of the bands was stiff competition. TJ&BB, a few long standing and very popular locals, and two bands that just go back from high profile gigs on each coast rounded out the night. After it was all said and done though it was Trinity and Big Bad going to the big show the Bon Jovi show.
