Consisting of leading voices from two of the most appreciated AOR bands, Freddy Curci from Alias and Rick Neigher and Chris Cote from Avalon ("Everyman A King" EP... remember those high harmonies!!!) and Adam Gorgoni, comes an acapella project of same prestige as "West Coast All Stars" once did... and more!! Cause this one feels so fresh and inspired and I urge you to at least give it a listen, as I'm sure that you're going to buy it once you did it. Please check out "Who's Your Daddy!" and by the way they're a member of this community so you can become friends too!
Who Are These Bad Daddies!!??
FREDDY CURCI – (First Tenor)
Freddy Curci is a Canadian AOR rock vocalist and songwriter best known for his stints in ALIAS and SHERIFF.
Curci has a multi-octave vocal range and holds the Guinness World Record for Longest Note Held in a Pop Song, for 30 seconds (timed and submitted by the University of Houston) for the ending note of "WHEN I'M WITH YOU."
Curci's vocals earned the Sheriff song "When I'm With You" the number 1 spot in 1989 and the Alias power ballad "MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY" (co-produced with Rick Neigher) the number 2 spot in 1990 on the Billboard charts.
RICK NEIGHER- (Second Tenor)
During Rick Neigher’s lengthy career as a record producer, bass player and songwriter, a diverse group of artists such as PRINCE, SHeDAISY, THE GO-GO'S, MICHELLE BRANCH, ALANIS MORISSETTE, and legendary roots-rock icon JOHN MELLENCAMP, have all recorded music under his influence.
A glimpse at his songwriting credits and co-writers resembles a Who’s Who of the music business creative universe. Always a fan of high technology, Neigher is currently strategizing and executing web-based advertising programs for B2B companies in North America. Rick and Chris Cote first met and collaborated when they formed and performed in their CAPITOL RECORDS band AVALON in the ‘80s.
ADAM GORGONI - (Baritone)
A native of New York City and the son of a studio musician, composer ADAM GORGONI spent many of his earliest days in recording studios absorbing diverse styles and techniques of music-making.
Scoring credits include Sundance favorite STARTING OUT IN THE EVENING, Karen Moncrieff’s THE DEAD GIRL, which was nominated for 3 Independent Spirit Awards in 2006 including Best Picture, BLUE CAR, for Miramax, the hit comedy WAITING, for Lions Gate, Ray Romano’s comedy, 95 MILES TO GO, the HBO Original PATH TO PARADISE, and many others. Television work includes the critically acclaimed CW series “ALIENS IN AMERICA,” Lorne Michaels’ ABC comedy SONS AND DAUGHTERS, as well as shows for NBC, Disney, Discovery Channel, Bravo, and National Geographic Network, among others.
CHRIS COTE – (Bass)
As a boy, Chris Cote sang soprano in honor choirs at major venues like L.A's Shrine Auditorium. Then puberty struck, and Chris became a basso profundo. He sang opera and classical lieder by day and rock and R&B by night, and earned a degree in music from UC Berkeley. After college, Chris met Rick Neigher, and the two wrote and sang music for television shows like “FANTASY ISLAND” and DAVID CASSIDY - MAN UNDERCOVER.” In the ‘80s, Chris and Rick continued to collaborate, forming the popular LA club band, Avalon, and eventually signing with Capitol Records. Thanks to his TV contacts, Chris also found work as an actor and spent more than twenty years appearing in guest spots on shows like “DYNASTY” and “MAGNUM P.I.” He also appeared in dozens of national commercials. Chris has taught improv and presentation skills to hundreds of pros and non-pros and is currently a vice-president at a London-based internet advertising company.
Of special note: he’s lived in London and Paris… and he’s TALL.
See? We weren’t kidding about our chops. If you really want proof, go buy our CD, download stuff from iTunes or one of those other places with the dopey names. Now, sit back and smell the Nag Champa.
