Biography

the REVERBERATORS was formed in 2002 by Marty McDermott and Tom Holland who met while playing together in a band based in Greene County, NY. With a combined background that covered more years than "we care to count" and a wide spectrum of musical styles, Marty and Tom had a shared vision of a band that featured an interesting mix of original material and good covers and utilized carefully arranged vocal harmonies as the group’s predominant feature. The REVERBERATORS is the result of this vision.

The band has gone through a handful of revisions since its inception. In 2004, Jim Featherstone, an accomplished guitar-slinger and vocalist joined the group and became a dominant force in the band’s direction. Beginning in the Fall of 2005, Luke Legg joined the group on keyboards and vocals. The line-up currently includes veteran musician Paul Posson of Schenectady on bass guitar.

The REVERBERATORS is a rock ‘n roll dance band that performs a varied mix of rock ‘n roll juke box standards from the 50’s through present day, some Blues, Ballads and Rockabilly, as well as an ever increasing repertoire of rock and folk influenced original material.

The REVERBERATORS is a vibrant, exciting band that enjoys wide appeal by all ages.
