NYC Hit Squad featuring Ricky Byrd, Christine Ohlman, Liberty DeVitto,
Muddy Shews, Jeff Kazee, Chris Anderson, and Neal Pawley
ONE SET ONLY
In June 2003 at an event in N.Y.C, I ran into longtime Billy Joel drummer Liberty Devitto. So we shoot the breeze, talk about this that and the other until we hit on the subject of current events. It seems Lib is off the road and I’m smack in the middle of the long and tedious process of finishing my Solo CD… Bottom line is we’re both achin’ to play out live!
So we’re gathering up a bunch of like minded pirates who you’ve probably heard of and putting together a band we’re calling ‘NYC Hit Squad.’
No record companies, publishers, booking agents… well actually we could use a booking agent!! This is about having fun, no strings attached.
Oh Yeah, we’re going to be playing the stuff we played when we first started out, before the ‘Business’ became part of the ‘Music’.
Ex. ‘I’ll go Crazy,’ ‘Little Queenie,’ ‘Girl Can’t help It,’ ‘My Girl,’ ‘That’s How Strong My Love Is,’ ‘Route 66′ … You get the picture.
And maybe… just maybe, we’ll throw in a few songs from our respective checkered pasts!
