  1. Wow! This is a great list! Lots of talent from Columbia…
    Here’s a few more bands that get a nod from me:
    Hot Lava Monster
    The Root Doctors
    Charming Hala
    49 Reasons
    God’s Comics (Brent’s other band)

    1. God’s Comics, I’ve heard of them repeatedly yet can’t find anything on them anywhere. Is there a place I can go to find more on them??
