About The Minor Kings
The Hall boys, Alex and Ryan, uttered their first words on earth amidst the chaos of father Jimmy Hall's incessant touring with his band, Wet Willie, and other music giants such as Jeff Beck, Gregg Allman, and Hank Williams Jr. But it wasn't until a mutual close friend urged them to form a band while on his death bed that the two brothers began to consider music as a career. Ryan moved back home and began writing on his upright Baldwin while little brother Alex, whose attraction to the spotlight earned him several impromptu freestyle appearances on stage with his Dad, began sharpening his vocal skills into razorblade melodies. The duo soon recruited high school buddy Chris Smith to be their axe man after hearing stories involving him locking himself into his parent's garage every summer with nothing but a 50's Les Paul, an amp, and a boombox...for real. The trio traded musical ideas by email as well as chi transmission, and jammed on holiday breaks. Before long, after a little professional seasoning, they had themselves a full roster, a couple of benchwarmers, and a full flock of cheerleaders in some pretty weird places. They are Slow Motion Centerfold, and they proudly present to you their unique rendition of rock 'n' roll, righteous and sweet. Kick back your high top shoes and enjoy the show!
