We are a 5 piece, youth rock band jamming together since 2014.
We have played large theater settings, to restaurants/clubs and private parties.
We are Jazz trained musicians from central CT, but classic to modern rock is our outlet for fun and creativity.
We have been writing and playing several of our own pieces, with most of our set covering Police, Rush, White Stripes, Kansas, Paramore, Green Day and many more.
We travel anywhere from Boston to New York City.
We can play for 3+ hours, provide opening acts, and additional talent to play our breaks, so there is NEVER any musical down-time.
We bring along all our own sound gear, monitors, drum risers, backdrop and lighting system.
Price Range: $400- $900 depending on additional talent.
Gig Length: 90 - 200 minutes
What to Expect
Most audiences are shocked by our musicianship at our ages.
We have been well directed since 2014 and are very solid when we need to be.
a female lead vocalist,
a bass player,
and drummer with an illuminated GRaviToNiK branded drumset.
Drumset can sit atop our portable riser, but does not have to.
Everyone on stage engages with each other and the crowd.
Lead guitar can be wireless and meander into the crowd if desired.
We will sometimes fill in gaps at the beginning or middle of a gig with some improvisational instrumentation, from hip jazz to something that sounds like island reggae!
We bring in a small, discrete trailer with all lighting and sound gear.
If we are providing sound, we usually need about 1 hr. setup.
If sound is provided, usually 45 mins setup.
If back line (including drums) are provided, usually 15 - 20 minute setup, and no trailer.
We have an optional Hazer machine (like a fog machine, but less intense) which when used
in conjunction with our LED lighting gives the effect of a much larger Rock Venue Feel.
We know how to keep the sound low enough when desired,
but can crank it up to the limits of your ROCK venue.
