Biography

From the very beginning, The People have been focused and determined working non-stop to create a name for themselves. Relentlessly striving to avoid the branding of labels, The People don't allow any one description, be it Progressive Rock, Jam band, or Indie to define them solely. Using the dense compositional style of the classical realm, the melodic sensibility of the singer/songwriter & the improvisational quality of a jazz combo, The People create a unique listening experience like no other.

Formed in 2004, Oliver Thompson (guitar/vocals), Joe Augugliaro (bass/vocals) and Sean Vinci (drums/vocals) have already conjured a devout following. And with the aid of CD's, t-shirts, stickers, and most importantly their high energy live performances, they have achieve a great deal in a very short amount of time. From the highly anticipated release of their debut album "Where Do I Begin" to their annual benefit concerts, and of course their now infamous Halloween Tribute to Phish (in which The People perform an surprise Phish album in it's entirety), The People are on a roll and show no signs of slowing down.

Lyrics

Tuesday Night Special

Written By: Oliver Thompson

She was a little rich girl
biggest house around

I was just a poor boy
from the other side of town

Her daddy owned a hotel
and my daddy worked a farm

But still we danced each night away
safe in each others arms

Chorus:
Every night on Tuesday
I sneek into the yard

See my baby waiting
with her Visa credit card

Hoping to God
that my mama doesn't see

Cause my baby's gonna spend some
money on me
____

Her daddy told her stay away
from fellas like me

And mama said that rich girls
were as evil as can be

Though we both lived
on the wrong side of the bay

I was more in love than Romeo
on Juliet's best day

Chorus:
Every night on Tuesday
I sneek into the yard

See my baby waiting
with her Visa credit card

Hoping to God
that my mama doesn't see

Cause my baby's gonna spend some
money on me
