Alt rock and roll band from Amityville, NY mixing the aggressiveness of bands like Guns n Roses with the pop and melodic sense of Foo Fighters? Is it the band with the hilarious video of their remake of Britney Spears' "Hold it against me"? Maybe they’re the band that puts on infectious, energetic live shows; impossible to not get swept up in till you're singing along having as good a time as they are. Their latest CD is entitled ‘A Life Exceptional” and was released in 2014. Band members include: Jimmy G (vocals, guitar), Matt Abbate (Lead Guitar), Jim Tassone (Drums/Percussion), Tommy Balls (Bass). The CD kicks lifts off the ground nicely with “Dirty Rock” a slamming intro piece that serves up a rocked out groove against effective harmonies, amazing solo guitar and soulful melody from Jimmy G. Track 2 “Your Last Day Alive” keeps thing moving in the right direction with heartfelt vocal delivery from Jimmy G against against a hot to the touch rhythm section and hooky chorus making for an impressive short but sweet, rocked out follow up statement. Track 3 “Here & Gone” is another impressive groove that dishes out full tilt rock rhythm and thought provoking lyrical content that flows and ebbs its way through to emotional fruition. The CD makes a great first impression dashing out 3 amazing songs in a row. The musicianship of everyone involved is above the bar - these guys are a tight 4 piece. I would classify this music as classic R&B, Americana, with brief touches of psychedelic Rock of the early 70’s Rock n’ Roll. Read Review
