In just over two weeks on December 4th, The Peak is going to be releasing Peak Performances Volume 2. Now, being with The Peak has its perks – I’ve heard a few of the tracks and let me tell you they sound great. The tracks were all recorded in ACME Studios in Mamaroneck with Grammy winner Rory Young at the helm. The record contains artists ranging from Andrew Bird, Willie Nile, Rob Thomas, and Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam who play at this summer’s Pleasantville Music Festival.
I could talk all day about the album, but what’s really exciting is the CD release party that’s lined up.
Headlining at the part is deSoL, coming all the way from exotic Asbury Park, New Jersey who we’re very excited to host. As you might imagine from their name, they put a Latin twist on World Class Rock. They’ve been playing together for almost ten years now – and if you haven’t seen them yet, what better opportunity to do so than on the fourth with your favorite radio station? Plus, deSoL is getting hot: All Music Guide said that, “deSoL is a band to pay very close attention to.” So why not catch them when they’re playing your own back yard.
Opening up the show are two more great performances – first up is Westchester’s own Michael Nappi, who’s single “7:26” is going to be on the Peak Performances Vol. 2. Following Nappi is The Evan Watson Band. Evan Watson, who’s voice is perhaps simplistically described as croon somewhere between Derek Trucks and John Mayer. Evan was born out in Indiana, but now lives in New York. Fun fact: his backing band members are known as “The Headless Horsemen”. I must have been channeling this performance two weeks ago.
But heads or no heads, the show is going to be fantastic – it’s held at a new venue called “LIFE the place to be” located in Ardsley. Get all the information for the event at The Peak’s Website by clicking here.
When you get there, be sure to say hi to all of our radio staff including the behind the scenes heroes like Kat Suda, our Promotions Director or Rob Dellagreca, our Sales Manager.
