Rosco Bandana - Feels Like Mississippi
Rosco Bandana are a seven-piece band from Gulfport, Mississippi. The group was discovered as part of Hard Rock’s 2011 Rising competition. Their debut album Time To Begin is out now on Hard Rock Records.READ THE FULL STORY of this song:
In 2000, former Mississippi state Senator Billy Hewes introduced a bill calling for a competition to find a new state song to replace Mississippi’s official song “Go Mississippi” (adopted by state legislature in 1962). He renewed his push for a new song in a November interview with the Clarion Ledger.
“We’ve got world−recognized talent. Get Faith Hill, B.B. King, Rosco Bandana − heck, get 3 Doors Down or Super Chikan − we can come up with something better,” said Hewes.
Since then, in a continued effort to change the state song Senator Robert L. Jackson has introduced two additional state song bills, one proposing to change the state song entirely and the other proposing to adopt a second state song.
Rosco Bandana heeded the call. The band was speeding between dates on I-10, but when they heard their home state of Mississippi needed their help they pulled over to a rest area and wrote the song on the spot at the side of the road and sent an iPhone recording of it to their label.
Upon returning to their hometown of Gulfport, MS after the December tour, the band took time over the holidays to record what they hope to be the new rallying cry of the state they proudly call home.
“Mississippi means so much to the band,” singer/guitarist Jason Sanford said. “We hope to bring a little bit of Mississippi to every town we play in, no matter where we are. And that’s why this opportunity means so much.”

When you come to see that you can do nothing, that the play of thought or feeling just goes on by itself as a happening, then you are in a state which we will call meditation. And slowly without being pushed, your thoughts will come to silence. That is to say, all the verbal symbolic chatter going on in the skull — don’t try and get rid of it because that will again produce the illusion that there’s a controller. It just goes on and goes on and goes on and finally gets tired of itself, gets bored and stops. And so then there’s a silence. And this is a deeper level of meditation. And in that silence you suddenly begin to see the world as it is.
