FOZZY

FOZZY

The band Fozzy has really always been about one thing: having fun. What started out for guitarist Rich Ward as a weekend cover band soon became an internationally signed act with the biggest star in professional wrestling, Chris Jericho, as its lead singer. Their first few releases still had Fozzy playing covers but with adopted stage names and a backstory written for the movies. When you have such high-energy performers like Ward and Jericho – it still is debatably on who jumps higher, Ward on stage with his guitar or Jericho in the ring – creating a ‘for fun’ band was easy, however Ward and Jericho aren’t just entertainers. Ward is probably one of the greatest and unjustly so, underrated riffers in rock and metal today. Jericho singing ability and overall passion for music makes one wonder just how he is able to find the time to excel in pretty much everything he does. It was these qualities that pushed the band to drop alter egos, get rid of the backstory and write original music.

DARK SKY CHOIR

DARK SKY CHOIR

Dark Sky Choir is an original hard rock/metal band from NY/NJ. The band was originally formed by 4 veterans of the area music scene as a classic metal tribute band playing the music they all grew up listening to. Metal fans continued to flock to their area shows in large numbers and the conversation about writing their own music began almost immediately. Spurred by the soaring voice of vocalist/front man “Hollywood How”, it was inevitable that “these guys have to do originals.” “Hollywood How” has spent many years on the local scene fronting various bands, most notably a Judas Priest tribute band, which showcased his stunning vocal range. Guitarist Fred Gorhau spent the last 7 years touring the USA and Canada with the holiday-themed progressive band The Wizards of Winter, playing alongside some of the original vocalists from Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Fred has also toured the USA and Europe as guitarist for the metal band Exxplorer. Drummer Mike Sakowski has been a drum teacher and career drummer for the past few decades. He has performed the local scene with countless cover bands and also toured the US and Europe with metal band Exxplorer. Veteran bassist Joe Stabile has been a constant member of the NY/NJ scene with decades of experience performing with 80’s bands Monroe, Taylen Storm, hard rock outfit Lords of Mercy, countless national acts, and touring with veteran metallers Anvil.
