First Rush




Progressive Rock with good vocal blend. We are primarilly playing Kansas, Toto, Boston, Styx, Journey, Foreigner, Seely Dan, etc. when we do cover music. Our primary interest is in our original music. We released an EP entitled "It's About Time" in fall 2012, and a full LP called "The Road Less Traveled" in 2014. They are available on Itunes, Spotify, Google Play, Rhapsody, Emusic, Medianet, and Amazon.

See our song page on Song Cast.

We are looking for a vocalist/lead guitar player and bass guitar player that can sing good background vocal and limited lead vocals. We are actively recording and are mainly interested in playing original music. We are working in the studio currently on a new project.
