A Definitive Ranking of Auburn Cover-Bands

A Definitive Ranking of Auburn Cover-Bands

Whatever your fancy, these guys can play it.

Whether they are rock, country, rap or however you want to describe Tim Tyler, watching a cover-band at the bar is just about the most fun any person can legally have whilst drinking intoxicating beverages.

Below is a definitive and well-researched ranking of the top-of-the-line bar cover-bands.

1. Blackberry Breeze

The Dadeville, AL, based alternative rock group is the most entertaining, musically talented, and diverse cover-band in the game right now. They have their roots in 90’s rock covering the gambit, from Blink 182 to AWOL Nation, Smash Mouth to Jimmy Eat World, but they also do a medley of rap hits from Nelly, Ludacris, Eminem, and others right in the middle of the set to really blow the roof off the place. They are engaging, entertaining, and genuinely love what they’re doing, which is extremely apparent at every show they put on. Whenever they are in town, they are an absolute must-see.

2. Trotline

The South Georgia based country cover-band can really throw a redneck party. They are the premiere country cover-band on the bar/fraternity house circuit right now. Right from the opener, you know these guys are just here to party and play music. When they play "Devil Went Down To Georgia," every party they play at can officially qualify as a hootenanny.

3. Tim Tyler

Tim Tyler cannot be described by a single genre, because he does it all: country, rock, hip-hop, and pop. Tim and his guitar player, Lane Wood, play everything from Elton John to Dave Matthews, The Osborne Brothers to Lynard Skynard. They are fun, they are loud, and they are good, which is perfect for a Friday night at SkyBar. Sing us a sing, Piano Man.

4. Fly-By Radio

This classic rock cover-band is here to do one thing and one thing only: rock your faces off, and they succeed. Aerosmith, Journey, Nirvana, and Guns N Roses are their wheelhouse, but they have branched out to include such artists as Hank Jr, Miley Cyrus and the Isley Brothers into their set. And their rendition of "Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leppard is must-see entertainment. Prepare for face-melting guitar solos, pounding drum beats, and lots and lots of leather.

5. Az Izz

No one represents the dirty dirty quite like Az-Izz. They turn every party they play at on its head with their down south rap sound and their sheer energy. Playing every rap song you could ever think of, things get funky pretty quick, and it’s amazing. Their cover of “Get Low” by Lil Jon and the Eastside Boys gets the party going, and it doesn’t let up from there.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

It's been a long, long time.


This past week, the Jonas Brothers released a song and music video starring their wives (and in Joe's case, fiancee), completely shocking fans given the fact that there was pretty much no prior warning. As rumors are running rampant about their getting back together and a possible tour, now seems like a good time to reflect on their past. Specifically, my favorite songs that they've written. And if the rumors are true...I hope to find new favorites soon.

1. "Inseparable"
