In our first blog on this subject, we looked at “X” factor 1. – how critical it is that the band covers a wide range of music styles. Not just to appeal to different ages, but also to cover different geographic parts of the U.S., and all the different tastes and styles. For instance, plenty of young people love modern country, in addition to modern pop. Or not. Raising Cain can flex any which way for events. The one thing that’s guaranteed is amazing, jaw dropping-ly accurate covers of your favorite songs. Just go to our Music/Demos tab, and click on our studio (audio) cover of “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. We’ve had people swear it was the original band. Nope! That’s us! Listen really, really carefully and you’ll hit some tiny but inconsequential differences.

So, in this blog, we’re going to take a look some more “X” factor items that make phenomenal bands really crush!
