About: The Ride
THE RIDE is the premier classic hard rock band in the North Florida area. A five-piece unit from Jacksonville whose members each bring many years of performing experience to the party. THE RIDE has been packing venues since forming in August of 2006. When you experience THE RIDE live, the first thing that hits you is their sound...it's HUGE...and it gives off an "in concert" vibe! The overall musicianship of THE RIDE is at a different level as each member is multi-talented. The thing that elevates THE RIDE above other bands is outstanding vocal ability! Their strong, multiple lead vocals along with three, four and five-part harmonies give THE RIDE the ability to perform songs that quite frankly, other bands won't even attempt!!! Their "dead on" renditions of songs by artists like Aerosmith, Journey, Kansas, Styx, Boston, Dream Theater, Rush, Led Zeppelin, The Outfield and many more leave audience members high-fiving and shaking their heads in disbelief! THE RIDE is currently at work on their first album that is scheduled for release in 2011! If you haven't had the opportunity to catch THE RIDE live, just click on the schedule above for all of their dates and ENJOY THE RIDE!!!
