Bio

We currently in pre production on our new CD. It will be our third full length to be released in the fall of (2007).

This past year was a busy one for the band with regular dates in NYC, and all over Long Island and headlining shows at the outdoor Chapin Rainbow Theatre in Huntington, Long Island. They also played a performance for the nationwide Verizon FiOs Festival (which had a corresponding web video contest online for the song "Gasoline"). The band was a featured performer for Fleet Week at Central Park Summerstage in NYC, and their most recent history has brought them several TV and radio appearances in support of their Summer-Fall (2005) east coast tour including a taping of an episode of the MTV show "Boiling Points". They were also chosen as a Sponsored band by Sam Ash Music Stores.

More past gis include playing to 13,000 sports fans as between period entertainment at a New York Islanders NHL game, then played a sold out engagement with Something Corporate and another with Gin Blossoms. They were also semi finalists (top 20 out of 1000's of entries nationwide) in the National "Be A Radio Star" Competition where they recieved airplay in rotation at Z100 radio in NY in addition to a nationally broadcast radio interview with Elvis Duran from the Z Morning Zoo and Actress Amanda Bynes. They were prominently displayed on Newsday.com's Impulse nightlife section as the subject of a skit with the comedy series The Slack Pack.

Our vocal harmonies are what sets us apart from other bands. Our motto when describing our music is "music with a message."

We have been playing together with the same lineup for 10 years. Our influences range from classic rock to pop.... here are some of them:
the beatles, pink floyd, led zeppelin, jimi hendrix, the who, the doors,depeche mode, the cure, pearl jam, alice in chains, the ramones, billy joel, sarah mclaughlan, nine inch nails, guns n roses, edwin mccain, soundgarden, the indigo girls, erasure, elvis costello, tom petty and the heartbreakers, concrete blonde, blondie, the talking heads hundreds more!

Throughout our career we have had the opportunity to play in many different states.
We've also been lucky enough to share the stage with many talented musicians.
