They're a group of young men not far from boyhood, but don't lump this Orlando-based quintet in with the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, or any other processed cheese band to pop up from the world of Disney.
Between the Trees performs at 11:30 p.m.
Saturday, January 6, at the Scrap Bar, 216 71st
St, Miami Beach. Admission is $5. All ages are
welcome. Call 305-865-0100 for more
During that time, Between the Trees played the Warped Tour and three months ago held its indie-label Bonded Records debut CD-release party for The Story and the Songat Hard Rock Live Orlando. That show drew more than 2300 fans, a venue-record crowd for a regional act.
The Story and the Song, released this past September through iTunes, independent retailers, and merchandise booths, charted on Billboard's Heatseekers South Atlantic chart at No. 3 and Independent Album chart at No. 44, making Between the Trees a true word-of-mouth success story.
