Favorite show we’ve played and why: Our favorite show has to be The Troubadour West Hollywood with Mike Dawson back in October. The sound, lights, and atmosphere where all great.  The crowd was electric and we had our own dressing room 🙂

Our inspiration: Pink Floyd, Thrice, Muse

We made this song in: Our Living Room.

We’d love to open up for: Incubus

Bio: Halfway is a 4 piece alternative rock band that recently changed their name from Halfway Decent.  They are sometimes compared to Incubus or The Red Hot Chilli Peppers.  Between the four of them the influences are gathered from across the board and it makes for quite an interesting sound.  They started out just playing back yard parties and dive bars.  They have since been featured at more prestigious clubs such as The Troubadour in West Hollywood, The Hard Rock Cafe in Newport Beach, The Fender Visitor Center in Corona and have shared the stage with such performers as The Reel Big Fish, The Missing Persons, Hurricane, and Mike Dawson from The Adam Carolla Show.  They will still play the occasional dive bar and party so don’t be afraid to hit them up.  Halfway is doing a self promoted self funded western state tour this summer and are always looking for gigs and new friends.  You can find their last E.P. (Halfway Decent – Abstract Art) on itunes, amazon, cdbaby etc.  They can be reached via email at hafwaydecent@gmail.com or the website www.halfwayband.com
