Starting out in November of 1994,
Bassist Seth Meidenman and ex-drummer Joe Cordaro got the idea to start
a funk and soul band. First joined by Guitarist Bill Gerrity whose instrumental
prowess and rhythmic capabilities are impressive to say the least. and
Alto/ Bari Saxophonist Adam Seely, sectional playing should be his middle
Soon the next core member was found,
Tenor Saxophonist Rob Cutts blowing sharp clean and precise. The boys
set out to put together a repertoire and the rest of the band. They
quickly found some like minded individuals and put together a set of
music. With Matt Searing's sweet and powerful vocals, the band can cover
many different bands in this genre, such as:
Tower Of Power,Steely
Dan, Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Paul Simon,
And Wilson Pickett.
The trumpet player Jason Chapman
adds a certian spice that complements the other horns. (formidable in
their own right). The addition of Alex Giacari on Drums has given the
band an unbelievable pulse that sits right in the pocket. And James
Sotis's keyboard playing has only added to the strong rhythm section
that already exsists. His subtle nuances and clever tones create a broad
pallette for melody to float on.
Finally the trombonist of choice
is Ed Leone. He puts the bottom into the horn section that is so powerful
it must be heard to be believed.
The band is always playing in the
New York City Long Island Area and are a real treat to listen as well
as dance to.
