Stereo Deck rocks at Dan McGuinness and the beat balances the blood with crisp heat that energizes the spirit—just the thing after a day of heat that drains everyone’s brains! Stereo Deck is an enterprising band specializing in the classic music of the 90’s through current selections in the genres of Rock, Alternative Rock and some grunge. They are considered a cover/tribute band with over 50 songs in their catalogue. Stereo Deck consists of four young men who are not just a ‘boy band’ but a group of dedicated quality musicians who love their craft.
Lead vocalist is Larry V. and his interpretation of raw rock and roll is tempered with the voice of a true crooner. His voice is as caressing and alluring as Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis and Roy Orbison from days gone by. His vocals are supported by back up vocalist and lead guitarist Matt Crossno. Together the romantic sensitive sounds appeal to the audience on a very basic level, and the young ladies are particularly taken with the vocals. Crossno’s talent as lead guitarist is unmistakable and drives the tunes for the band beautifully. Tyler Nichols as bass guitarist is a new addition to the band, yet he blends in perfectly with the other members and his mastery and confidence is evident. On drums is Thomas Hurd. Hurd’s perfect timing is evident as he plays with complete control and gives the rhythm and tempo needed for a perfect rendition of every song.
The venue of Dan McGuinness is absolutely perfect for an excellent band. The stage is tucked away behind a large screen TV and when the screen rises and the band plays a night of fun begins. The acoustics are perfect and the patrons of the pub are drawn in to the music without being overpowered. For those who wish to converse with a lower decibel level there is a room to the side, and in back for anyone who wishes a game of pool. However, with Stereo Deck, almost everyone is front and center with a large group of young ladies dancing to the throbbing beat in front.
