THE FEATHERTOPS:EXPERIENCE THE MUSIC
What can you say about a band whose members are barely old enough to drink but have been performing live for 5-7 years? A band whose members have played the East and West Coast, Vegas, East Germany and have been featured on a nationally released soundtrack to a movie?
A band who has shared the stage with some of our musical legends?

This band has a very unique background.
It's members started their musical training at a young age. As fate would have it, all 5 band members met at the original Paul Green School of Rock in Philadelphia, which now has more than 40 schools across the country. Each member of The Feathertops /P. Apostles were also members of the 1st School of Rock All Star Band and were featured on the Rock School soundtrack and documentary. Feathertop's lead singer Dom Malandro, was featured on the Rock School soundtrack singing L.A. Woman and Iron Man.He originally started out as the sax player in the all star band before developing into a lead vocalist.

The Feathertops/ P.Apostles have gained expereince performing around the country and playing with musical legends. The guys have played with performers such as Ann Wilson, Alice Cooper, Billy Idol, Jon Anderson, Napolean Murphy Brock, Ike Willis, Carlos Alomar and many others. This unique training and experience has been priceless.

The cornerstones of the band are hard work and a commitment to give the audience the best possible performance every show.

The band's influences range from Muddy Waters to Pink Flyod to the Foo Fighters and beyond.

Lyrics

LORD JIM

Written By: CAMERON SIMA/DOMENIC MALANDRO

I told the mate I don't believe in saving face
Even when the tides have run astern
The clouds that once were clear are darkening I fear
I do not think we will return

I jumped my own ship and now I face the wind
And wear the coward's mark
I sailed once with pride but it washed out with the tide
I wish I could return

The waves that crashed the deck broke the watchman's neck
and then I dove into the drink

The mates held out until the last
They were forced to cut the mast
And the ship did not sink

Many years have gone by
I believe its time to die
Could never call the land my home

Pullin on all the line
Shove off one last time
Seek my peace under the foam

THE ODYSSEY

Written By: CAMER SIMA

The trim black ships raced across the sea
Tearing the king away from his queen
Sent out to fight his brother's war
Bringing destruction to his front door
They say there's a face that launched these thousand ships
But yours is the one I've been dreaming with.

And when at last I see you again
it'll be as if we never met
Twenty years and it's been far too long
With no sweet voice but the Herald's song
And all these long lonely nights that you've spent alone
He sand yoyr name to me
On the wine dark sea please set me free.

GLorious battle in faraway lands
Virtue taken by the strength of our hands
We fought for glory sent our names to the skies
Tough we won through shadows and lies
Never would have left had I seen what's in store

But who's ever seen the start of their course?

STREET WALKER 9 TOPHER'S BIG DAY PART 2

Written By: THE FEATHERTOPS

searching my mind fir what I left behind
Tough I don't know what I may find
news comes in of all the women
Who I've never been within

How far will we go how high will we fly, etc..

You are my dearest and we have some spirits
Now there's no reason to feat it
You're gonna shake and the clifftops will quake

What I give i hope you can take

How far will we go how high will we fly, etc..

TARBUCKET BLUES

Written By: CAMERON SIMA

The work I do makes my clothes black and inside I feel blue to know the truth I rather tyrn my back and jump off the roof

In the ever loving darkness I try to do what's right. The bloing pot has got the best of me. I know... Tarbucket Blues

The sun is hot the days are long and it's a long way to the top .My guts are a knot and these pills I'm on I can barely hold onto my mop

In the end I rather not have life one big fight there is something more he's got in store for me

And I know...Tarbucket Blues
