The Cincinnati Sinners to play Riverfest September 2, 2012
Broad Horizon Records, Inc. is pleased to announce that The Cincinnati Sinners will be playing this year’s Riverfest.
Hot on the trail of the release of their new single, She’s the One, The Cincinnati Sinners were invited to be one of 5 local bands to play the nation’s biggest Labor Day Party; Riverfest, or as it is more commonly known, The Cincinnati Bell / WEBN Fireworks.
The Fireworks started in 1977 as a celebration of 10 years of decadence by local radio station, WEBN. 80,000 people showed up in what would become the nation’s biggest summer blowout; growing in popularity and size, year after year after year. Several sponsors have come and gone (Hudepohl Brewery, Pepsi, Toyota) but one thing continues; a spectacular show by Rozzi’s Fireworks (Loveland OH) a synchronized soundtrack by the area’s largest Rock Station, and a ton of fun provided by some of the area’s best vendors and local musicians. The event routinely draws over 500,000 people to the Cincinnati Riverfront and is celebrating it’s 35th anniversary this year.
The Cincinnati Sinners are excited to be playing the prestigious and coveted event; having opened for Sebastian Bach, Jackyl, Quiet Riot, and appearing on the Monsters of Rock Cruise within the last 12 months. Their first single, Thunder, got modest airplay while their follow up, She’s the One seems to be THE one for the Sinners. Already in heavy rotation on Cincinnati stations due to the band’s addition to the fireworks festivities, a full fledged radio campaign for the single kicks off 10.11.12. Featuring Russell Jinkens (CJSS/Prizoner) you may have seen them recently on Spike TV’s Bar Rescue or in the upcoming video campaign for Fireball Whisky.
WEBN is a commercial album oriented rock (AOR) station licensed in Cincinnati and owned by Clear Channel Communications. The station serves the greater Cincinnati area since 1967 and is the home of many Cincinnati personalities. Besides a standard analog transmission, WEBN broadcasts over two HD Radio channels, and is available online via iHeartRadio.

You have heard ’em on the Hard Rock Nights Radio show. You have heard ’em on Class X Radio. The Cincinnati Sinners have released a six song EP titled 6pak. Russell Jenkins, who has previously sang in the bands Prizoner and CJSS, is somewhat of a local legend in the Cincinnati music scene. It is damn good to see him back in action,in his new band Sinners.
On the 6pak EP, The Sinners have released five original tunes, and a fun cover of the Rolling Stones’ classic, “It’s Only Rock N Roll”. The five original tunes that rock hard and are a blast to listen to. The high-octane rocker “Thunder” sounds like a blend of classic AC/DC and Foghat. I have been fortunate enough to see Sinners play this one live, and it rocks just as hard on the CD, as it does live. “Cold Pussy Strut” is a sleazy rocker that could have easily been written by Taime Downe. This song sounds like it could have come out of the late 80’s. (Check it out in the clip below!)
“Girls, Cars, Guitars And Rock N Roll” is a simple but fun rocker, about….wait for it….. girls, cars, guitars and rock n’ roll. This is a catchy tune with some pretty rockin’ guitar riffs.
“Big Sexxy” is the only song on the 6pak that has a southern rock vibe. This song could actually get airplay on rock and country stations, although it definitely more on the rock side of the house.
“Sinnerz Swing” is the heaviest song on the 6pak. This style of this song reminds me a lot of Kid Rock, but very cool nonetheless.
There isn’t a bad song on the 6Pak, and it definitely worth of a download. You can purchase the Mp3 downloads of the Sinners 6pak at iTunes and Amazon.com. for more information on Sinners, please check out the band’s Facebook page.
Don’t miss out on the 6pak!! I think you will enjoy it, I sure am!
