Project 222 "Greater than the Sun"

By, Amanda Hansult

In December of 2007, Project222 was born as the result of five jam band veterans coming together to form one musical entity that packs a lot of power. No they're not loud and aggressive-they're just really good. And they should be, knowing all that they've accomplished and experienced in their separate endeavors.

Most members of Project222 have already seen high levels of success through their other works, including lead guitarist Jimmy Farkas, whose music can be heard on Playstation 2 games, as well as other musicians' albums such as Joss Stone' Soul Sessions and Disney phenomenon the Jonas Brothers' records as well. Bassist Phil DiGiorgio has been successful in the past with his touring band, The Breadbox Band, and he can also be heard on video games such as The Sims2. Drummer Bob Elliott has made a name for himself in a Dave Matthews tribute band called Rhyme And Reason. And finally, Eric Safka, keyboardist, is known for his work in bands such as Days Awake and Paperback Radio. To top it off, singer Dennis DeSanctis compliments each note played with the beautiful tone of his voice and brings an honest and almost vulnerable quality to the overall sound.
