“Their live show should be excellent…”
That’s what John McC from Louisiana told me about the Iwrestledabearonce show.
He was so excited about their All Star Tour performance and I had never seen one of their live shows before… So I was happy to know that from a reader! (John – I hope you enjoyed the show!)

Anyhow, prior to their All Star Tour performance, Steven Bradley (one of the masterminds and guitar/programming) spoke to me via cell phone – and a few texts – while he stood outside House of Blues Houston. Very cool guy. By “cool”, I mean grounded, well spoken and easy to relate to… and creative. The Louisiana Tech graduate (Economics degree) has an awesome attitude.
“It’s not about getting rich,” Bradley states. “While that WOULD be nice… It’s just not about the money.”
Then what is “it” all about?
Bradley doesn’t hesitate, “Passion. Staying positive. Playing like you mean it. And having a good time. If we were not doing all of that, then we would not be onstage.”
The fans of Iwrestleabearonce can very obviously see and feel this from their favorite band. When they took the stage, there were deafening screams and when the performance was over, the outpouring of metal love was strong.
Iwrestledabearonce will be on the All Star Tour for a bit longer. It’s no problem to share a bus and for Bradley, well, he is a very good night driver! The band has been “homeless on tour”, but now call L.A. their base camp.
So, back on track… After the Houston stop All Star Tour, they will be heading to the chilly, but beautiful state of Alaska for a few shows. There are other things in the works – great things – but you will have to wait for those announcements.
Definitely check out Steven Bradley’s clothing line “Let’s Make Mistakes”. Part of the proceeds are given to VH1’s Save The Music organization. He said that while growing up in Shreveport, LA, the music in school was “sad”. He would like to see that changed for EVERYONE and is doing his part to make it a reality.
The lineup for Iwrestledabearonce has been stable for 2 years now. For more information on the band, visit www.iwrestledabearonce.com and get links to EVERYWHERE!
