It's been a year and a half since singer John Llewellyn and drummer Wade Szezkoof (both previously of Blindsyght ) hooked up with guitarist Mohsen Roudsari and bassist Jason Tucker (both of Virgil Kain) to form For What It's Worth, an aggressive, guitar-heavy outfit. Last spring, with new bassist John McConnell on board, the foursome competed in 98 Rock's two-month Battle of the Bands and earned a spot at the station's annual RockFest at the Exchange Park Fairgrounds. This summer, For What It's Worth shared the stage at the Music Farm with alt-rock group Crossfade, performing in front of one of their largest club audiences so far. Llewellyn knows that landing these choice gigs are the key to For What It's Worth's success. "We're hoping to get on the bill of any big show that comes through town this fall," Llewellyn says. "That's a way for us to prove ourselves and show the promoters and venues that we can bring a good crowd and play a solid set." This fall, Llewellyn and company will head to James Island's Ocean Industries to record.
