Red Means Go was formed in Spring 2002 by four friends who found each other through their day job - as musicians for the Blue Man Group in Las Vegas, Nevada. The band draws it's sound from a wide variety of influences, including 70's and 80's hard rock bands (Guns n Roses, Motley Crue, Van Halen, AC/DC and Aerosmith) and a plethora of pop artists (Weezer, Foo Fighters, the Police, Jellyfish, Cheap Trick and Queen). The end result has been described as 'KiSS-influenced guitars with post-Beatles harmonies.' Before even playing one gig, the lads in Red Means Go had recorded a full album worth of material, titled 'Album 1.' Released in September 2002, the this album featured 10 songs written by founding members Corky Gainsford and Michael Kelly (also known as MK), with each song-writer picking up vocal duties for their respective songs. 'Album 1' contained two singles, 'Do Re Fa So' and 'Drowning,' which both received airplay on KOMP 92.3's Homegrown Show and Xtreme 107.5's show It Hurts When I Pee. By the end of the year, Red Means Go was named one of the top acts in Las Vegas at the LV Mercury Music Showcase, and labeled a 'Reason For Hope' for the Las Vegas music scene by the LV Review Journal. 2003 proved to be an interesting year for the band, as they recorded their second album, but also went on hiatus due to a national tour by the Blue Man Group that dragged Corky Gainsford away from Las Vegas for most of the year. Despite the adversity, Red Means Go was able to put together 'Don't Tailgate,' another full album of material that featured a heavier overall sound, but also showcased the band's growth and improvement in writing catchy melodies and lush harmonies. KOMP 92.3 has already put the single 'Running With Scissors' into heavy rotation on Laurie Steele's Homegrown Show. Although the band is still on hiatus, all 4 members still work together at Blue Man Group in Las Vegas. Will a reunion show happen? Possibly. Wait and see, wait and see...
