Bio

As the name implies, this is not just any old band. The seeds for the group were sewn years ago when the members were playing with other ensembles. It wasn’t until Jon and Larry’s band, known at the time as the mad things, decided they wanted to do a very special one-off show in which they would play all of Pink Floyd’s dark side of the moon that Superband was formed.
For this endeavor Jon and Larry sought out the help of some old friends. First, Jon’s side project, the Wild Idiots were called on, adding Joey and Dan to the band. This added the versatility of a bassist with extensive pink floyd knowledge and a talented multi-instrumentalist, respectively. Their presence would be vital to filling out the intricate sonic landscape that is The Floyd’s epic masterpiece. Next, Joey suggested his wonderfully talented vocalist sister, Zuzu, come on board. She has since, single-handedly, led to more audience member head explosions than anyone on earth. Finally, Jon and Larry reached out to their old friend Jay, who had experience on drums playing Dark Side when they were members of the fan favorite, Amazing Disgrace.
With the line-up in place and the gig booked at Stamford’s legendary Seaside Tavern, the band began to rehearse. They were to be billed as the Mad Things for the show but began to lovingly refer to themselves as “The Superband” since the members came from a variety of different groups to form one larger entity.
Finally, on a calm Fall night, the Mad Things played what was to become the first show of this new supergroup. The show was a hit, the audience went wild, a second gig was demanded and rest is, shall we say, the future?
