MEMBERS
At the core we are classic quartet, drums, bass, main vocalist on rhythm electric & acoustic guitar Josh Clyde. Lead Guitarist/Vocalist Dean Palermo, NY Drummer Chaz Ferrari & Philly Bassist Flash Gordon.

OUR IMMEDIATE GOAL
We are prepared and ready RIGHT NOW, NOW is a great time to put this well practiced band to work.

SUBLIME COVER BAND SET EPK VIDEO

We are interested in performing in places with crowds and venues that can that pay a fair band wage.  Sublime to Classic Reggae to Classic Rock cover songs, and some newer rock songs.  Because our singer can rap, we are able cover some more rap style songs as well, and be able to do all of this in a way that have fun with and dance to.

WHERE WE PERFORM 
Our current primary gig is 1-2 Sunday afternoons per month at Harbor Beach Marriott on Fort Lauderdale Beach, we play by the pool, they had us do a big 4th of July dinner/pre-fireworks show, it went awesome. We have performed numerous times at Silverball Museum in Del Ray, currently, they are in construction on a stage right now actually so shows will be great there coming up. We are interested in gigs from Miami to West Palm Beach, we will travel away from Broward if its fair enough pay opportunity.

ABOUT THE BAND / SHOW
We read a room well and adjust our show around the audience. Sometimes its a younger crowd, sometimes its an older crowd, sometimes people want to drink and dance and other times people want to kick back and do their thing with some nice music. Just depends on gig and situation and we brighten the moment with some fun / sometimes funny versions of a lot of classic songs allowing our sarcastic, a bit silly personality to show through how we perform our shows.  We are flexible and adjust our shows based upon common sense room feedback and reading the audience.

LEAD SINGER / GUITARIST
Our youthful and energetic lead singer Josh brings soul, intensity and fun to wherever he goes, he identifies with younger audiences as well as the audiences of the classics. By day singer josh is the #1 south Florida Corporate Sand Logo / Sculpture artist. Part of our magic is our interaction with audience and our ability to add personalized-in-the-moment improvisation rap/singing/banter usually involving various audience members keep people engaged as well as mystified by his ability to flow in the moment. He gives us a fun band personality definitely, that we think is alluring and relevant enough to be asking if you are interested in assisting us with booking gigs.

ABOUT LEAD GUITARIST / ADD’L SINGER
The lead guitarist orchestrates the music and guides people through a really juicy classic b sides type songs and creative ways to cover songs. So the band can really jam and elevate musical moments that people achieve at LARGE VENUE CONCERTS typically by well accomplished stud expert musicians. We are soulful and always look for those magical moments that is possible with live music performance. Dean worked for 15 years with Toots and the Maytals under the long time manager Mike Cacia. I also have an additional understudy guitarist, who is available for bigger stages/budget shows.

ABOUT THE DRUMMER
Chaz Sciara, The NYC drummer is an older man who’s played drums for like 60 years, who has played countless weddings, casinos, hollywood band shell with The Bowery Boys, he knows every song from 50s-80s awaiting us to add endless typical classics to our list. We’ve taught him how to play Reggae. He is a great soldier and brings solid tempo & energy as every drummer should. We have a conga only player as well if we ever want/need to add him.

ABOUT THE BASSISTs
Flash (michael) Gordon is our primary bassist. (We have approx 4 options for bass). Flash is also an older gentleman who has played bass for decades, He’s a sub for a handful of local bands, I’d say at his core is jazz, funk, blues, rock. He brings the professional bottom end that supports the singer & lead guitarists improvisations, and is in lock step with the drummer.

Our other bassists are Denny Hechevarria who is a back up for us is the primary bassist with very actively gigging Ricky Valido & the Hialeah Hillbillies, Alana Davis – absolute world-class stud natural musician and beautiful woman to look at on stage as well, and lastly sometimes Brian Jobson, (famous Jamaican family, his brother is Native Wayne from KROQ in LA (who broke Sublime), Brian literally works at Dave Stewarts studio (From actual Eurythmics!)

POSSIBLE SIT-IN MUSICIANS
I have a few additional sometimes available incredible musicians for shows with budget, and their availability.

Singing-drummer Squidly Cole, Jamaica Famous world touring drummer of Stephen Marley & Most Marley family gigs. Literally basically when he’s not playing at the largest festivals around the world with the Marleys, and he’s working on tracks in south Florida with me, when not on the road, we got’em, which is always a incredible night when we can have him even if just to sit in.

Janice Simbob (Singer/Havoc 305) local female lead singer for some Rock Cover bands in Miami & Broward, recently performed Hollywood band shell, and regular at Cafe 27.

More rarely, Carl Harvey,  lead guitarist from Toots and the Maytals, if we catch him in town with an open night he has jammed with us a handful of times here in South Florida.
