Backfire - Rock

We categorize ourselves simply as a rock band, although we have been called garage, underground, indie, grunge, punk, metal, even hard pop. but we have found ourselves through music and that is all that matters. we play for the insides of people, not the outsides. at times there is a degree of angst, and aggression in our music, but beyond that. we portray vibe and emotion through our music. some lyrics can be profoundly interpreted, while others can be trifling contradictions that make no sense to the point of laughter, but it's only what you get out of it. we play for ourselves... we enjoy our music and its relentless variation. but we also hope to reach out to the people who think independently, deeply, or away from the norm; those who can acknowledge sincerity and honesty; and most of all those who simply love rock music. party on wayne.

She's the long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band, who sang at SNL's 25th Anniversary telecast and Bob Dylan's 30th Anniversary bash at The Garden; appears on the Grammy-nominated A Tribute To Howlin' Wolf (with Taj Mahal and Lucinda Williams) and Charlie Musselwhite's 2002 Grammy nominee One Night In America; worked on a musical with Cy Coleman (who maintains her sense of timing is not unlike Peggy Lee's); duets whenever possible with blues legend Eddie Kirkland; collaborated with Marshall Crenshaw on a critically-acclaimed track for Labour Of Love: The Music of Nick Lowe; edited Andrew Loog Oldham's autobiography 2Stoned; worked with Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder & others on the Rhythm & Blues Foundation Awards--all the while continuing to torch clubs up and down the eastern seaboard in support of her recordings (Strip, The Hard Way, Radio Queen, and Wicked Time) with her band Rebel Montez. " I've come here tonight to set your souls on fire," she'll tell an audience. And she will.

Embers of Rage - Rock

We took six different styles of music combined them together and created EMBERS OF RAGE in late 2000. The sound we have spun is a high-energy performance of hard hitting alt-rock. To us it's all about the music, putting every ounce of energy and sweat into the songs and lyrics we breathe so our music is explosive to the fans we capture. Our live shows are played with deep emotion so that the audience consumes us. We strive on making each show better than the last.
After recording a four song demo in September of 2003 we found that people wanted more from us. Now we are heading back into the EOR studio for 2004 to write and record our first full length CD not yet titled. As music changes over time EMBERS OF RAGE will continue to evolve their musical style; yet at the same time hang onto their hard rock roots. Our lyrics are very direct and understandable, people can relate to them, that's something we don't want to move away from but we will take our sound and expand it.

Our hearts lie with succeeding as a band, to write and promote our music, but we know as musicians you have to be diversified so we added cover songs into our mix. The crowd really seems to open their arms and hearts to the music that is familiar to them. Our goal is to create, then capture the hearts and ears of the people.

Ethic - Rock
images/bands/ethic.jpg
ethic (eth' ik)
1. The discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation.
2. A set of moral principles or values.
3. A Connecticut based hard rocking quartet that defies any exact genre, or classification, as well as defying all those who said that it couldn't work due to differences in musical backgrounds within the band. Yet five years and fortey some odd original songs later Ethic is stronger than ever, and about to take all those non believer's by storm.
In 1999 ethic recorded and released their first full length cd, titled "Ghost stories of the 20th century", a fourteen song collection of the bands first original works. Ethic hit the road throughout New England opening up,showcasing,or/headlining. Everywhere they could get one foot in the door, their instruments followed.
Later that year, the original drummer departed to pursue other interests, within a week the lead guitarist would follow. Stephen Pompei, (vocalist, and rhythm guitarist) and Rick Scarola, (bassist) held two months of auditions, and finally decided on Aaron Travers, (drummer) and Dean Cardinale, (lead guitarist). Under this new line-up, Ethic returned to the studio to record to record their sophomore project, "Can Anybody Hear Me", which was a collection of some of the older songs from the first disc and some newer material which they had been working on. touring behind the second album got much more serious, opening for some bigger name bands like Doubledrive, Stephen Piercey, Split Shift, Night Ranger, and others. In late 2003 Dean Cardinale was replaced by Rocky Sundgren, and Ethic has been writing new material on the basis of Sundgren's innovative style ever since.
And there you have it, Ethic will be returning to the studio to record their 3rd cd (tentatively entitled, "The Day The Sun Cried") in February 2005. Keep checking the website for release date as well as the 2005 tour!!!

Final Falling - rock/alternative

It all started in November of 2004 when our lead guitarist John Senia heard that vocalist Gary Fierro and bassist Dan Fortuna had a band. During that time Gary's band CRYONIC had gone through various drummers and where on the verge of just stopping and only jam once and a while. This sucked! So we were all glad when John made contact with us over the internet one night. John was recently involved in a band before our' s and we all knew he was a sick guitarist just what we needed to get back into it all. John joined the band and we had 3 people all we needed was a drummer worthy enough for CRYONIC! After 1 month of searching over the internet we found an article online his name was Ray Hilton from Hamden and he played so insanely that we hired him the first tryout day. Ray completed the band and the next thing to do was just jam. We started off playing cover's to get used to playing as a full complete band that got strangely boring. So we started making originals and that turned out great and we changed our name to Final Falling. As of right now we are still in the midst of creating our originals for our first full length album/demo Mass Affliction

Great Dane -  rock

 " If you like your music alternative, but not too much so, Great Dane is the band for you. Like Beck, The Smashing Pumpkins/Jimmy Chamberlain, Radiohead, Modest Mouse, and various others, these artists excel at making accessible music that still maintains an identity despite its inherent catchiness. Clever and crystalline, Great Dane is to indie rock what an actual Great Dane puppy is to dogs; the Dane is still a dog, but you have a feeling that some day it's going to get a hell of a lot bigger than its peers. If that metaphor doesn't do anything for you, how about this; if you're sick of all the saccharine youth pandering modern radio rock generally shoves down your throat, try this instead.
Clever, wise, and ultimately sophisticated, Great Dane is this writer's pick of the post rock litter." ~Mark Hensch www.antimusic.com

i - Rock

" they're a band, they're local and lo and behold, they write their own songs. This wouldn't be such a novel concept if we were in any of the other 49 states, but here in CT we seem to be lacking groups who parade their own material. The talented five some on Sling Slang Records sounds like a cross between New Radicals, Kula Shaker and a Bolly-wood movie about hard rock, effortlessly mixing the expressive sounds of guitar, bass and drums, with the unmistakably Eastern twang of the sitar." -A.B.

Livintrust - rock
" The idea is to be timeless...not precious." That's the word according to the group. The crunch of metal guitar for the sake of sounding contemporary is, if anything, an afterthought; at times existing almost to spite the current trend rather than kowtowing to it. Instead, blindDRIVE is a channeling of songs that were desperate to come out, almost as if they had waited for just the right time to be heard. Twelve tunes unconcerned with the package in which they are delivered, equally at home in the deafening volume of any rock bar or in the privacy of your own headphones. Scratch the surface and suddenly Livintrust defies categorization.In true rock band fashion, they conceived and wrote the songs that would become blindDRIVE clustered around haphazardly assembled gear and a 4-track recorder; first in the sweltering New Haven attic rehearsal space of singer Art Loomer, then in a maze of band rooms and makeshift studios housed in derelict factory buildings near Hartford. These enclosing spaces would force inner concentration and attention to detail, everybody invading the personal territory of the others, and leave the band no choice but to learn to fly in formation. And every rock band does it; a near endless procession of musicians and singers, coming and going until that perfect chemistry is discovered, a perfect balance acheived. Now Keith Caro and Holden Truelove could bring with them guitars to pick and choose from an endless bag of riffs and an infinite number of ideas; Justin Wade sending the notes from a bass over to drummer Matthew Christopher where they were pounded into songs. Finally, Art Loomer snarled a lyrical invitation to the curious to come take a look inside." It's just a fun ride," as one band member put it, though they take it as seriously as could be expected. Livintrust is at once a band cohesive and collected, yet teetering on the verge of implosion. Their sleight of hand is the depth of the content lurking almost out of earshot, each word beckoning the listener to catch up or be left behind. The common goal now is to stay balanced. And as long as it matters to someone, what could be more fun than that?

PUSH - Female Hard Rock

Together since September of 2002, Push's four members have been playing their respective instruments since a very young age. Lead singer Kim Ley got her start while just a teen.  Being that her father was part of the very popular recording band of the sixties, The Crystal Tones, singing was a huge part of family life  At the age of seventeen, she left home to embark on her music career.  Ley was part of many bands including Nightshift, the heavy metal cover band Vengeance, Phenix, and Toy Chest.  More recently (2002) she recorded a country duet with singing sensation Lenny Paquet. The single was released on Dark Horse Records and went to Number 17 on the European charts!
Guitarist Geoff Cone and bass player Colin Cantalupo have also shared the stage with many great local bands during their time. Cone got his start learning classical piano when he was nine years old, and at the age of seventeen he found his true love; the guitar.  Cantalupo began playing guitar at the age of eight and started his first band when he was in seventh grade.  Cone and Cantalupo played with various bands all over Connecticut until meeting up to further a project known as Dube's Leak.  A few months into the project, Ley joined and that is when the magic happened. When Dube's Leak ended, the three members decided to continue on with one another because of the amazing bond they shared. Drummer Marc Dupuis, the newest addition of Push, was hired in June 2003 to replace Mike Haniffy. A drummer since the age of nine, Dupuis performed for a year with The Other Half, a Toledo based touring band, playing original music in the style of Frank Zappa.  Other all-original bands included Zyllion (fka The Grin and Loki), After The Fall, and The Buildings, as well as numerous club acts.

"Organic" is a word that guitarist Rev and Keyboardist Ron often use to describe the band's sound. Coming from backgrounds heavily founded in blues, southern rock, soul music, psychedelic rock, even folk and jazz, the members of the band have paid careful attention to the selection of equipment and tones, seeking to bring out a natural, warm tone. Hammond organs, pianos, and electronics no more sophisticated than a Fender Rhodes make up the keyboard sound. The guitar sound is all Fender and Gibson instruments, powered by all-tube technology through a vintage Marshall rig. A five-string Smith custom bass guitar through a hand-picked Eden bass rig provides a rich tone for the bass; and Mark stands by his 20-year-old (and then some) Gretsch thin maple shell drum kit like a war buddy. The members of this band consider themselves spoiled, at this point, with their great-sounding gear. But more important than gear or even years of experience are the thoughts, the ideas, and the influences that form the sound of Sol Dog. The band is a richly organic mix of jam-oriented grooves, but the players have so much more to draw upon. From the Allmans and Little Feat, the Dead and Phish, to James Brown and Buddy Miles, to Hendrix and even Pink Floyd... From Rush to Jethro Tull, Cat Stevens to Van Morrison to the Rolling Stones and the Black Crowes, the members of Sol Dog are not afraid to take their influences and run with them, and run they do. " Southern rock" is a label that has been thrown at them, as is "blues"; but this is truly jam music at its best, complete with well arranged songs, carefully thought out passages, and dynamic vocal harmonies. Sol Dog will make you want to listen, dance, and think all at once. Watch your feet.

Soul Bridge - Rock
Soul Bridge based in New Haven was formed in early 03. Vocalist Danny Flores, guitarist Andrew Solano, and drummer Victor Salas all had a love for music inspired by bands like P.O.D., Sevendust, Chevelle, Incubus, Deftones , Ill Nino and System Of A Down.They began jamming and having fun with hopes of finding a bassist. Tom Nunley who had played with Flores earlier joined afterwards. Nunley's musical background was hip hop and r&b but didn't conflict with the style that the band was playing so the they felt that he was the missing piece to completing Soul Bridge.

The Tall - Energetic Groove Trip Rock

The TaLL was formed in late February of 2003 by a bunch of guys, (neal - vox & guitar, frankus - guitar, ameZzz - bass, rox - drums), who wanted to create some inspired, fun and
heavy music infused with a dose of trippy jamming and a live feel. Imagine Foo Fighters meets Deftones meets Radiohead. After the band found a place to sleep, play and write, they
helped build a recording studio in a barter deal allowing them to track their first record. After spending 10 weeks with design and build out, and the last piece of gear was patched in, The TaLL began to engineer and produce "Meet The TaLL". This was August of 2003. Completion of tracking and mix prep
was done in October. The record is currently being mixed by Robert Scovill (FOH for Tom Petty, Rush, Prince, Dylan, Rolling Stones) in Arizona; the full-length offering is due out in early 2004. So in the meanwhile, The TaLL is putting together a memorable live show that is ever changing and always different. The primary goal of 2004 is to support the record; packages are going out and dates will soon start to be put in place. This full-time outfit is comprised of a bunch of rock n roll guys with
the talent, time and persistence to make it all work. Watch out for these guys in 04.

Tune Chic - Rock Band

The Tune Chic is Sandy Connolly who was originally trained in the depths of the Southland.  Her parents sent her to school to study classically, but she had the fortunate opportunity in 1986 to hear Bonnie Raitt in an intimate concert on Martha's Vineyard.  There she found her musical calling:  the blues and rock n' roll.  Throwing dirt on her pure tone and getting all gravely and groovy was way more fun, and way more people liked to listen to it.  Soon after, she began guitar lessons with the late Sal Salvador (well-known jazz guitarist in New England) and studied for three years getting her groove down.  She now joins forces with lots of musicians in the New Haven area, most notably:  lead guitar player Johnny Memphis, bass player Eric Kuhn, and drummer Rick Haddad (for The Tune Chic Rock Band) as well as The Tall Boys Blues Band.
