"Sitting Down With the Breadbox Band"

As the Breadbox Band is gearing up for the release of their self-titled first studio album, they take a moment to reflect on their proudest accomplishment so far, the year 2006. The year that perpetuated their progress, brought them tons of new fans and introduced them to a taste of success. Dave Halchak, Phil diGiorgio, Jordan Simms, Chris Pedersen and Chris Rinaldi make up the artistic group that is the Breadbox Band. They have fun on and off the stage, experimenting with sound and musically demanding that people get up and dance.
For a band that officially formed in 2004, it hasn’t taken long for people to look up and pay attention to the progress of this band. They are eager to play and in demand, a winning combination. At the end of 2006 the Breadbox Band can honestly say they have just had their best year to date. They’ve been requested at well known, widely attended music festivals, vastly increasing internet activity on their website and they headlined their first show at Mexicali Blues Café in Teaneck, NJ. The crowds came out with a vengeance offering support and positive energy which is why it’s the band’s favorite show so far.
The Breadbox Band can get comfortable with the feeling of success because it’s sure to keep coming. They set themselves apart by being able to musically reach just about anybody. One of the key reasons as to why this band can appeal to a wide audience is because they each come from a very different musical background. Combining influences such as Phish, Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley and Marilyn Manson brings each fan something to relate to. With the strength of their songwriting and love of improvisation, the Breadbox Band can get any crowd moving and smiling.
According to the band, their success can be attributed to three important reasons. They have always distributed their music in a free form, handing out over 10,000 live discs, making things easier for people to experience their sound. They pride themselves on taking advantage of every opportunity and making the most of it, such as accepting every gig possible and playing their hearts out every time. Last but far from least, the band gives a lot of credit to the strength and responsiveness of the audiences they play for. The steps they have taken have created a solid and loyal fan base of music lovers who will travel any distance to support the Breadbox Band in any endeavor.
Their combined talents, enthusiastic approach, dedication to the music and their appreciation for the fans are the four pillars this band stands upon and is the perfect platform. The release of their first studio album is the next step in a long line of advances they are sure to make. It is inevitable that the Breadbox Band will continue to grow and expand its fan-base at a rapid pace.
So keep your eyes and ears open as this group takes leaps and strides and most definitely winds up in your neighborhood. For more information and a complete tour schedule please visit - Jennifer Cosgrove
