CJ Baran (guitar, vocals), Steve Scarola (guitar), Nick Deturris (bass), and Derek Ries (drums)
You will be drawn in by the good looks of this four piece band from Long Island, NY. But then you will be spun in by the fun, pop-rocking songs that will leave you craving for more. The band is currently on tour promoting their new CD release called Found on their Midnight Romeo Tour. When the band took stage, the mostly all female crowd of fans were ready to rock. CJ Baran - the model-looking lead singer and guitarist took control and led off the night with their perfect pop-rocker Watch It Burn which led into Heart Attack and the whoa-whoa sing-along Away,Away. Other catchy tunes performed were Barely Legal and Start Again. The band seemed thrilled to be back in Chicago and they all shared lead vocals when they did a knock-out Push Play version of the Beastie Boys hit - Fight For Your Right. They also performed Covergirl - a high energy song about finding that perfect face in a magazine and their big smash of the night was their own Midnight Romeo. The band selected one lucky girl from the audience, led her on stage, and she was their Midnight Juliet as they sang their song to her.
This band has the makings of being the next big thing. Definitively Push Play to take a listen to this band!
