"Local Musicians - Cd Review"

"This foursome delivers diversity," the Transfers declare on their Myspace page. "We stay true to our roots and gallantly, feverishly continue to inch our musical talent into a pool of noise and commence to spit and spoon it to others who will receive with a smile. Our goal is for everyone to understand that the real message is LOVE. We write and sing about it, with a bit of political sarcasm mixed in."
And a bit of sarcasm over the love thing, too.
"We kissed on the promenade, we were drunk on the wine," Jackson sings over a wall of fractious power-pop guitars on "4th of July." "How could she forget the fraud with his hand in her mind?"
"Flossing Brigade" finds Nandlal summoning the ghost of the post-Beatle John Lennon -- musically, lyrically and vocally: "Go and grab the wand, the one with the glittery glam," Nandlal sings. "The flossing brigade will put it down and swallow you fast. And if it spits out the love, you'll clench up for sure."
The rock band lives up to that diversity pledge over those and the other 10 tracks on their stylishly (at times stunningly) produced, self-titled CD.
Among the diverse vibes here: the Americana-cloaked, Wilco-ish "Let the Light In," and the reggae grooves of "Grow Together" and "1997," the four-on-the-floor hootenanny of "Behind Your Eyes," and the raucous, Pearl Jam blast of "Orbit."
Yet the immaculate production, the band's songwriting chops and the clever, Beatle-esque arrangements give the album a cohesiveness and reveal a band in control -- not one desperately grasping for gimmicks. - Cd Review by By RICK de YAMPERT of News Journal

The Band plays in 'acoustic' settings like wine bars, art fairs, fundraisers and 'live' in bustling Beer Breweries, music venues and Festival stages. Book them today!! With enough material to cover 3- 4 hours of sweet melodies.
The Band stays true to its roots and blends a fusion of sounds and melodies, spanning the decades, to produce their own 'feel good music'. The Band is currently touring, and writing towards a new record for 2011.
The Band is comprised of Richard Grano on lead guitar (PRS, Fender), Clay Jackson on Guitar and Keyboards (Epiphone, Roland), Terry Nandlal on Guitar and Bass (Rickenbacker, Ampeg) and Ryan Manos on Drums (Tama). All four gentlemen sing, and vocal harmonies are a hallmark of they're performance.
From Festival crowds to back-yard jamborees, and underground clubs, these guys are professional, and ready to entertain!
