Going to a Bar Pilots show is like a trip back to a time when rock ruled the airwaves and you just couldn't wait for your favorite band's next album release. Not over-produced, not angst-ridden, just pure sonic joy. Music played for audiences sharing in unified rock revelry. Meeting friends at a bar with a live band was a destination point, not an afterthought.
When FM radio wasn't over-programmed into irrelevance. This is genuine rock 'n roll from the heart.

Our songs recall the magic of rock in the '70s and '80s, the swagger of a band and the faith of the fans. There's a distinction in our approach: the Pacific NW's fierce musical tribalism in a diametric path wtth rock and roll's royal roots firmly planted in the southeastern states.
It's muscular and a little rough around the edges. It's high-energy and attitude, where good times and bad decisions win the day.
