The Midway at 9:30 PM

The Midway was formed in Los Angeles, California when three friends who had a shared passion for driving, hard- hitting, catchy rock music decided to join forces. Singer/Guitarist Mike Rex says jokingly, “We realized we loved the same style of music, so we thought it made perfect sense to start a band”. The trio knew they had something special the first time they all plugged in. “It just clicked, it felt so natural”, says bassist Nelson Miranda. Drummer Brian Sheahan says, “It came together so fast! One day we are practicing for the first time, and then before I know it, we are playing shows. We are growing so fast”.

The band has quickly gained popularity in the Los Angeles scene for their unique sound. Drawing influences from all areas of Rock, Pop, and Punk, the band carefully blends their influences into their style to create a sound that resonates with audiences of all ages. “I think their style of music is fresh”, one fan says. “They really know how to walk the line, while making it sound cool. I feel like they are a blend of Green Day… meets The Killers… meets The Goo Goo Dolls.”

The band recently released their debut album on iTunes and Spotify,”Nowhere But Here”. The record showcases the band’s range of sounds. “Believe”, the lead- off single, is an upbeat anthem for anyone who has experienced issues with an unexpected breakup, which the band agrees: everyone has. “Stay Tonight” uses melodic string and piano arrangements that immerse the listener into a feeling everyone can relate to: the excitement, nervousness, and uncertainty of meeting someone special for the first time. “We wanted to make this song sound huge and emotional. We want to give you goose bumps with this one” Rex says, jokingly. 

This is all just the tip of the iceberg for The Midway, however. The band is already filling their fall calendar with shows. Singer/Guitarist Mike Rex says, “We have so much more to show the world, so get ready!”
