A new band is on the horizon for Suncoast live music lovers! Tom (Tommy Mack) MacKnight, formerly of the popular party band Guilty Pleasures, Chris (Cosmo) Dallenbach, John (Johnny Mac) McNulty and Randy (Iceman) Lindsay have come together to bring a fresh new sound to the classic rock party band.
Their debut gig will be at Stottlemyer’s Smokehouse on Friday, October 20th! A perfect casual venue to play to a rockin’ crowd along with an eclectic setlist that ranges from a potpourri of songs from favorites like R&B artist Al Green, to classic oldies band Rare Earth to today’s guitar greats such as Joe Bonamossa! There is a something for everyone to get into!
The impetus of The Verge was with Cosmo introducing Tom to guitarist Johnny Mack, who it turned out was from Tom’s hometown in Norwalk, CT and who Tom had seen play with his popular band, Harvann. They started jamming and everything clicked right away. Bass player Randy Lindsay was new in town and worked right in. All seasoned musicians, they have done studio work as well as playing in various bands. Drummer Cosmo has toured Europe and Randy has filled in on bass with such national acts as Foghat and Molly Hatchett.
The Suncoast area welcomes a great new cover band to rock with and dance to! The Verge is looking forward to getting out and bringing music to the masses.
