SPIKE IVORY – VELVET CHAINS: Spike Ivory is a rock band based out of Springfield, New Jersey. The CD lists seven members including two guitarists and three different drummers. J. Galluzzi is the driving force of the group as the songwriter, producer and a player. Spike Ivory describes their music as a "return to the basis" with a sound that is down-home American rock with a touch of the blues. Their songs are a collage of life lessons and reflections on relationships. Velvet Chains is Spike Ivory's latest release featuring eleven-tracks. 'My Maria' is the first song and single. It is an up-tempo rocker that is catchy and packs a punch. 'Velvet Chains' has a robust pace, galloping guitars and is sung with gusto. 'Rolling Thunder' starts off with booming guitars before the pace slows to a more reflective tone and then returns to the heavy guitar licks. The lyrics are striking with a call to "say a prayer for the red, white and blue." Spike Ivory delivers solid rock songs with a no-nonsense approach!

“WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT SPIKE. YOU KNOW IF I HAD THE MONEY TO FINANCE ANOTHER WOODSTOCK, SPIKE WOULD BE ON THE MAIN STAGE. I WAS TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO DESCRIBE SOME OF THE MUSIC ON SPIKE’S CD THEN I WONDERED WHAT WOULD HARD ROCK SOUND LIKE IN A QUIET MODE. WELL, THAT’S SPIKE, HARD ROCK UNPLUGGED. I ESPECIALLY LIKE “ DON’T TALK TO ME”. GREAT MUSICIANS ON THIS CD. TO BAD MAJOR LABELS ARE MISSING AN ARTIST LIKE SPIKE. BUT THEN AGAIN THAT’S PROBABLY WHY THEY ARE DOING SO BAD RIGHT NOW.
