Profile The three person band hails from Utica, New York and they play a cool mix of AOR, Hard Rock,and 90s style Rock, fronted by premier sound and lead singer M. D’Andrea who work also with Cross Bronx and Expressway while he was a former player on the Syracuse Bisons football team. The band features cool, smooth Poppy 90s style AOR tracks, with stellar usage of keyboards and even some saxophones.  Very hard to compare who these guys sound like because they have their own style.  There are some Westcoast Rock moments on this record as well.  Extremely rare.
