Another great new release When Friends Come Out To Play the band was founded by Steve Rosenberg. Steve grew up in NYC - The Bronx & Queens then in Long Island where he played in several bands with Lee Rocker, who went on to become the founding member of rockabilly band "The Stray Cats".

After many years of playing on other artists CDs Steve had some songs in his soul that he needed to get out, with the help of his friends that are on the upcoming CD When Friends Come Out To Play. Steve’s dreams have finally been realized.

The musical genres on this CD vary from in your face rock and roll to rockabilly and even a touch of Jazz. According to Steve It has been a great journey and I am proud to have had my friends involved in the recording of this release. The CD is dedicated to the life of our friend William Purlo who performs bass on the song "Dreams", William also recorded 3 of the songs in his studio". Bill passed away in during the recording of this project and when Steve spoke to him last Bill was excited about the music that was being born.
