Elements Magazine Review February 2008

I had the pleasure of attending Vista Hill’s CD launch party. I applauded my friend, lead vocalist Sherman Arnowitz, right along with more than 150 others who jammed The Metropolitan in Glen Cove to mark this momentous occasion.

Sherman and his bandmates; Marc Brenner on keyboards, Dan Roth on drums and Todd Roberto on bass took to the stage to perform many of their original material from their new CD, Looking For Tara.

With all of the ticket sales benefiting the Diabetes Research Institute, it was a sellout event, rocking the night away with a charitable twist!

Vista Hill offers feel-good, adult contemporary music that appeals to a wide range of listeners. Often compared to the Barenaked Ladies with an added twist of the Beatles, this four-piece Long Island band has been enthralling audiences of all ages for several years.

Vista Hill is comprised of Sherman Arnowitz on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, Richie Shapiro on drums and vocals, Marc Brenner on keyboards and vocals and Todd Roberto on Bass.

Performing in the New York tri-state area, the band discovered their music’s appeal knew no limit. People from ages 4 to 84 come to their concerts to listen and dance to their music. Their music is built to have a real ‘feel-good’ vibe to it so that people can relate to the words and music no matter what the generation.

By playing shows with artists such as Al DiMeola, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes and a tour with America (“A Horse With No Name”), the band’s popularity really began to spread.

Touring the tri-state area has definitely helped to increase their fan base. The Internet has also been a great word of mouth for exposure of the band; people from all over the world are listening and downloading our music and buying Vista Hill merchandise.

With the band’s momentum building, the band finished 9th (out of 2,000) in the 2010 Emergenza Battle of the Bands, a heady accomplishment.

Vista Hill’s commitment to making music that inspires has already resulted in contributions to both fans and community. It’s the band’s philosophy that a portion of all ticket sales are donated to various charities. Vista Hill’s CD release party for Looking For Tara earned over $4,000 for the Diabetes Research Institute. And, in 2009, Vista Hill raised over $5,000 at one of their fundraisers for a four year old boy with a rare form of cancer.
