New local band The Ready Stance makes its debut appearance Saturday at Northside Tavern, and local music fans who have been following the scene since before Facebook and MP3s likely will recognize at least a couple of familiar faces in their rank. Guitarist Wes Pence and drummer Eric Moreton were founding members of Middlemarch, one of the key bands of Cincinnati music’s early-’90s heyday.

The new band started when Pence (who was then just jamming with friends on weekends) became neighbors with singer/guitarist Chase Johnston, who had just returned to the area after living in Athens, Ga., and performing with the band Stories Below. Pence then invited bassist Paolo Conti (one of his weekend jam pals) and old cohort Moreton to sign on.

The band is currently working on recordings and has been posting songs online as they’re finished.
