This review is written with the hope of providing some much-needed advice for the band. On August 3rd I was at a show at Dingbatz in Clifton, New Jersey, and the opening act was The Dropoutz. Based on the quality of their live performance, I would not have expected anything good from this demo.

The songs are good, and well written, but they seem to be played with no enthusiasm. Mikki Twist needs to lift his head and be proud of the music he and his band have created. This review is not a put-down: the music is there, they just need to take it another level. The two songs on here, “Wake Up” and “Without You,” are good-but as the leader of the band; Mikki needs to put some backbone into the vocals. I know they have energy, but it isn’t reflected in this demo. “Wake Me” has a good beat but again, the background vocals lack in excitement. The same goes for “Without You”. If these songs were remixed to add a bit of spice to them and show off Mikki’s vocals, I am sure The Dropoutz would be heard.

Band Lineup:
  • Mikki Twist - Vocals, Guitar
  • Ray Ray - Guitar
  • Shawn Mohr - Bass
  • Scotti Boy - Drums


Track Listing:
  1. Wake Up
  2. Without You
