Band member Mike Zervos, a musician for more than 30 years, started the band in early 2014. His goal was to perform top songs from some of the biggest artists from the 1960s to today:
“We wanted to play music that few bands play anymore, music that’s not heard on the radio much these days. We have some of the top musicians and vocalists in the New York City area, and they all bring energy and accuracy to each song.”
