Guest post: Groovin' at the Sand Trap with Fry Sauce at 9:50 AM

Having never been to the Sand Trap before, I was pleasantly surprised at how laid back and friendly the employees were. I knew right away it was not your regular bar scene. Everyone's friendly faces and service made me feel like I was right at home.

I have often heard about the groovy beats of the local band Fry Sauce, but I didn't get the privilege of enjoying their tunes until last night. I'll tell you one thing, they know how to bust a beat! If you like to chill out, take a load off and just plain have a good time, Fry Sauce is the band for you. Songs like 'Slacker' and 'One Spot' help you forget all your problems and remember to simply enjoy life. Who doesn't love a message like that?

Rich Melton and Aaron Meyers on vocals are like the vintage jam rock you've grown up to, only with a natural high. Ben Malan and Ben Allred on guitar and bass respectively, had licks that reminded me of the Red Hot Chili Peppers back in the funk days when they were working with George Clinton. Amazing talent is reticent with these guys. Aaron's skills on the drums are extremely fun to watch. My brother is a drum corps major with University of Utah and professional drum corps across the nation. Even he was impressed with Aaron's groovy beats.

It wasn't just the fact that the band becomes your best friend right when you walk in the door or their sheer stamina in playing two sets from 9:30pm to 2:00am, it was the happy-go-lucky vibe they created just by being themselves. Their fans seemed so connected to them that you felt like a member of the family just by rubbing shoulders with them. And I dare you to try and keep yourself from dancing! I'll definitely be back to the Sand Trap to hang out with Fry Sauce again.
