Corey Glover (Vocals) was an aspiring actor when guitarist Vernon Reid drafted him into Living Colour in 1985, where the band found immediate success with the release of their debut album, Vivid in 1988. It eventually went platinum in April 1989. The album's hit single "Cult of Personality" won the 1989 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance and the band was named Best New Artist at the MTV Video Music Awards. Glover also appeared in Oliver Stone's Platoon, and toured the country in the role of Judas with Ted Neely in Jesus Christ Superstar.
Steve Holley (drums) has performed and recorded with Paul McCartney, Elton John, Kiki Dee, Joe Cocker, Ian Hunter, Julian Lennon, Ben E. King and Chuck Berry. He also played on Elton John's hit single "Ego."
David C. Gross (bass) is a well-known author of bass instruction books, a columnist and contributing editor for leading music magazines. An accomplished touring and studio bassist, David has performed with Stephen Stills, Aztec Two-Step, John Parr and many others.
Benny Harrison (keyboards) has recorded and shared the stage with Joe Bonamassa and Tommy James.
Amos Sanfilippo (Guitar / Vocals) Hailing from the West Midlands in the UK, Amos has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in rock music including Bill Ward (Black Sabbath), Ray Gillen (Bandlands), Mike Inez (Ozzy Osbourne / Alice in Chains), and Eric Singer (KISS). He was a member of the Los Angeles based band, London with Nadir D'Prist, during their heyday on the Sunset Strip. Upon moving to the East Coast he became the guitarist for the number one Van Halen Tribute band, Diver Down, who he continues to perform with today. He is also the touring guitarist with Vocalist, Eric Martin of the mega band, Mr. Big.
For many in the Classic Rock, Prog Rock world Hirsh Gardner is a familiar name. He first came onto the national and international radar as a founding member, drummer and vocalist with the band New England. The band's history is well documented with Billboard hit singles, international tours and legendary classic rock albums. Tours with Kiss, AC/DC, Journey, Styx, Cheap Trick and studio work with producers Paul Stanley, Todd Rundgren and Mike Stone are only a few of the highlights of Hirsh's career.
After New England disbanded in the mid-80s, Gardner stayed quite busy as the go to producer in Boston and has been at the helm for dozens of albums including efforts from Mass, Willie Nile, Vice, Shyboy and many others. The New England catalog has been re-issued and interest in the band has skyrocketed. This past year saw Hirsh and the band tour Japan to sold out shows as well as several other sold out US shows.
Hirsh's latest solo release is entitled My Brain Needs A Holiday. This 10 song disc is the long awaited follow up to Gardner's acclaimed solo debut Wasteland For Broken Hearts. As was the case with it's predecessor, My Brain is full of AOR anthems and thunderous ballads."It was time for a new album," Gardner quips. "I stay so busy writing and producing other artists I need to take a holiday (that's where the album title comes from) and stay in touch with myself as an artist. After all, that's where it started; seeing The Beatles on TV and starting a band in my garage. I think we have a really great collection here that my core audience will enjoy and hopefully we can grab some new fans along the way."
Hirsh is currently on the road with his dynamic solo show featuring Joe Feloni on guitar.
