"Cris Russo - Flavor Of The Month"

When you listen to Cris's music you have let your mind escape on the notes in the music ...his voice and the melody are blended nicely so that they are enough to soothe the soul yet invigorate the senses.

You can get easily lost in the story of the words if you really listen to them. Every time I have listened to his music there is not once that I have not been able to be rocked and swayed by it. No matter what mood you are in, it is impossible to sit perfectly still while listening to his tunes. Quite simply, it is a sound that just makes you want to move.

I can see Cris moving up in the music industry. He has all the qualities of a good musician and his pure talent can easily be seen throughout his lyrics and musical composition style.

The modern rock band RUSSO is based in the rock-and-roll hotbed of northern New Jersey. After forming through the efforts of singer/songwriter Cris Russo and drummer Kurt Patrick in December of 2006, the group released its debut 4-track EP, "The Moment We’ve All Been Waiting" in May of 2007. 50+ shows and over a million Myspace plays later, RUSSO'S new EP, including new single and title-track, "Vanitas Luxuria," is greater than ever.

The band, including guitarists Dave Crum and Dan D’Grote, and bass player Will Sapannaro, has come together to hit a level of creation rivaled only by the top acts in the industry. The music is straight up rock-and-roll, with soaring pop choruses and unforgettable grooves. Fans of Hinder, Velvet Revolver, and Bon Jovi will fall in love with RUSSO’S hard driving beats, meaningful lyrics, high-flying melodies, and epic guitar work.

RUSSO has delighted audiences ever since its first show in August of 2007. In such a short period of time, the band has built an impressive résumé. Included are: a sold out room at Maxwell’s Bar and Grill in Hoboken, NJ, The Northern Star Arena at Six Flags Great Adventure (with Good Charlotte, Boys Like Girls, and Metro Station), The Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ (with Tragedy and Mr. Brownstone), The Bowery Ballroom in New York City (with The Wildhearts), as well as numerous charity, benefit, small club, and college events in New Jersey and the greater New York metro area.

The high-flying stage performance holds the audience’s attention and leaves them wanting more. Their youthful energy coupled with a mature sound draws in a wide range of listener. There really is something for everyone at a RUSSO event.
