This 21 Birds flyer was provided to me by Toyz bass player Mark McGreevy. If you knew the Miami scene you knew these were some of the best original bands in South Florida. What we didn’t realize was that in the immortal words of Bruno Martinez, (drummer for Z-Cars and Cats on Holiday), “Miami was the black hole of rock music”. Very few record companies took the time to come to Maimi to check out bands. It took us getting ourselves on MTV to get record company attention. After all my years of visiting other cities and checking out their music scene, I do believe that Miami had some of the most innovative and original rock bands. It should have blossomed into a Seattle scene but alas we were only known for our salsa band, The Miami Sound Machine.
