Bronze Medallion marks drummer Clark Littlepage’s first venture into the bar and club music scene. After a period as a member of the Marshall University Marching band and spending 2009 “drumming every day” for the World Class Cascades Drum and Bugle Corps., Clark’s sister Mallory, an attorney and University of Louisville graduate, indirectly hooked him up with Alex McCoy, the lead vocalist, after hearing from his girlfriend that he had a new band and needed a drummer.

Utilizing Facebook for an initial “meet and greet,” McCoy invited Clark to “come over and jam.” They hit it off instantly, Clark said during a telephone interview Friday, Feb. 14 with HNN.

The band made its debut on an Open Mike night at the V Club, 741 Sixth Avenue, on Thanksgiving Eve then played Jan. 17 with Coyotes and Boxes and the Allure. They play Saturday, Feb. 15 at 9 p.m. opening the evening for A Story Told, Party or Die, and Here Comes Quincy.

Describing their sound as the “Beatles meet Bruce Springsteen,” their all original set opens with “Home” and closes with “Colby,” a tribute to the TV game show “Jeopardy” champion of the same name. Officially, their influences range from Talking Heads and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club to The Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, and Vampire Weekend.

The mostly “feel good” rock band Bronze Medallion has received “tremendous” response. Their next performance will be Friday, March 7 at Huntington’s Ale Club.

In addition to McCoy and Littlepage, the group includes Thomas Adkins, bass guitar, and Corey Zomes, guitar/vocals.

Cover charge for the V Club line-up is $5.
