Hit Play

We decided to do something that no other cover band would do with 2 guitars, bass, drums and a saxophone. We will play all genres of pop music, from all eras of pop music, and any style of pop music. Imagine a band with 5 people who can sing and play together like they have been doing it their whole lives, and no matter who is watching they will hear some of their favorite songs. This is Hit Play.

It all started with a conversation between 2 guys over breakfast, who at first glance, looked most unlikely to sit down and have a conversation about music. Ezra knew that Gregg had guitar skills and was not limited in his knowledge of songs styles and sounds. Gregg knew that Ezra could sing anything. It only took one gig in front of a crowd of 30 people. Hit Play was born...

Fast forward 6 months, Ez and Gregg were paired with a skilled rhythm section by saxaphonist Jon Banco for 1 show that featured Buck Allemond(bass)and Jason Birch(drums), whose roots in Jazz, Funk, and Rock gave them the dexterity to learn a catalogue of over 100 songs that Ezra and Gregg had comprised...

When the final note of that first show had been played everyone in the place knew there was something undeniable to the sound of this band, and the guys couldn't wait to do it again...
