Band Spotlight: Ill Rendition at Tailgaters

Hailing from the Atlantic City area, Ill Rendition's sound can be described in three words, at least that's what bassist Maceo P. King says: "It's chill, it's funky and it rocks." Fittingly, the rockers will keep it local when they host a CD-release party for their new album "Bombs Away" Friday, April 29, at Tailgaters in Galloway Township. Opening the show will be Confab and Standing Army.

Roster: Luis Perez, drums; Christian Glomb, vocals, guitar; Maceo P. King, bass.

Who They Jam To: Red Hot Chili Peppers, 311, Sublime, Pepper, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Less Than Jake.

Why They Love To Play: "There's something very raw about being a part of a crowd that just isn't the same with a DJ," King says.

Getting The Party Started: "It's about making music that we can jump around on stage to, and that gets the crowd moving and the party going," King says.
