The band began playing music together in 1999. The current established group of players, which form a tight groove-oriented outfit, has maintained a distinctive crowd pleasing identity for many years.
Thundering rhythm and blistering solos, balanced by delicate melodies and well-crafted songwriting, give this band a unique flavor all of its own. The sound of the band, while constantly evolving, has its roots in Classic Rock, Funk, Americana, Folk, Rhythm and Blues. They have a well balanced mix of vintage tone and contemporary improvisational fusion that gets dance floors shaking.
At any given time, their repertoire consists of at least 250 songs. Since the inception of the band, their primary goal has been to provide listeners with quality performances which include original music along with tasteful renditions of songs written by some of their favorite artists. The “Peds” have been performing in the Delaware Valley since 2001 and are Atlantic City’s premiere improvisational rock band.
