Forge

BandRock

Forge blends the southern rock stylings of Lynyrd Skynyrd with the 80s arena-rock of Van-Halen and Rush, adds a splash of Bad Co.-style classic rock and mixes it with the sound of todays contemporary rock artists. The result: Tomorrow's Classic Rock.

Biography

Forge performs over three hours of classic rock hits from Skynyrd, Van-Halen, Eddie Money, ZZ Top, Golden Earring, Journey, Bob Seger, AC/DC and more. They are a road-tested veteran trio with a new cd of original material called "The Dash" available at cdbaby.com or www.forgeband.com.

With the help of Nashville-based Vision Music Group and the North Carolina publicity and promotion company Star Entertainment Group, Forge is mounting a major national and international push to bring their modern Classic and Southern Rock to the forefront.

Guitarist/singer/songwriter Pete Lampron has been an artist on a Nashville indie label and is a veteran NE performer with miles of blazing guitar work having passed under his wheels. His voice has been described by songwriting legend Scotty Turner as "quite an instrument" and his guitar playing as "gorgeous" by Boston Soundcheck Magazine.

Bassist/singer/songwriter Mike Pollini creates a trifecta of skills by playing the bass like a master, singing and contributing his songwriting to the sound of Forge. Mike's experience has brought him to the stage and studio with a host of local and national talent, and his mix of both melodic and hammering bass lines have earned him the aptly chosen nickname of "Thunderfingers".

Fred Hebert has been behind a set of drums (or at least pots and pans) since he was old enough to sit upright. His consistent, creative and dynamic style combines skillful artistry with sheer rhythmic power. His live performances fuel the beating heart of Forge and his professionalism and dedication to his craft are legendary.
