Opening act - The Cryers
THE CRYERS have been performing since 1991 throughout the United States and Canada, especially around their home base of New Jersey and New York City. The band's sound is based deep within the roots of rock and roll. It features a solid beat, captivating harmonies, and powerfully-written songs. Along with their original material, the band performs tunes from the vast archives of rock and roll, breathing new life into timeless classics as well as contemporary songs. Sid Berstein, the man responsible for bringing the Beatles to America, called this band "Magical!"
The Cryers are led by founder and musical director, Joe Orlando (www.joeorlando.com), who writes and arranges the band's original work. He books and produces shows, and handles all arrangements required for a band consistently on the road. In addition to The Cryers' own performances, they are constantly working with such legendary artists as Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members Denny Laine (The Moody Blues, Paul McCartney & Wings), Terry Sylvester (The Hollies), John Ford Coley (England Dan & John Ford Coley), Joey Molland (Badfinger), and legendary guitarist Albert Lee.
