Connecticut’s New Rock Power House Talks with New Haven Our City Radio.
Interview Written and Conducted by Robert Cush New Haven Our City Radio Publicist
New Haven, CT 10/3/2013 – Red December is one of Connecticut’s up and coming Rock acts that has been creating waves in the Hartford County music scene. Joe Colturi , the band’s guitarist and vocalist, sparked the passion for this group with an all too common way for today’s musicians to meet and create together; craigslist. Answering the add Nate Sage, the group’s drummer, further fueled the drive to create a truly hard rocking band. The bass player, Pete Kelley, and guitarist, James Dodd, completed the group and they have been rocking CT ever since.
They sat down with me to discuss some of their adventures in the local music scene.
While gigging throughout the “860” they have dealt with many of the same set backs all groups must face. Aside from the usual broken strings and terrible sound techs some of the best venues they’ve rocked have been, Bleachers in Bristol, CT and All-stars in Manchester, CT; sports bars known for their great sound and enlivened crowds. The band uses Gibson and PRS guitars and Pete Kelley’s Ernie Ball Music-man bass.
Red December is sure to bring that hard rock sound to all of their events.
Their highly anticipated first, self-titled, album is being recorded now in Our City Radio’s own backyard, Whitehouse Productions in New Haven, CT. The nine track album “revolves around real life experiences that most people go through” and should be released in the next few months. Red December has recently been invited to open for Poison’s Brett Michaels at the Webster Theatre Tuesday, October 15th. This is a great honor and the band is excited and ready to showcase their talents on a big stage. It’s a must see show in the heart of CT’s local music scene, the Webster. Make sure you check out Red December these guys are going to be big. And mark October 15th in your calendars it will be a show you do not want to miss.
Thanks for reading I’ll be back soon with some more great acts and venues you have to check out. Until next time, keep supporting local music and don’t forget to tip your bartender.
