They didn't know it at the time, but for years the members of The Cosmic Coronas were on an inevitable collision course toward the creation of the ultimate rock, punk and funk musical experience.
The brilliance of the Cosmic Coronas is the result of a mashup between The Fabulous Rhinos and The SuffTown Traffic Jam. The Rhinos were founded by Brad Widolok, Noah Nielsen, Kevin Gayson and Tom Taubes in the winter of 2014 after a number of successful jams in New York City’s Euphoria Studios. Brad’s thick guitar leads layered on top of Noah’s overdriven grooves and Kevin’s smooth acoustic accompaniment formed the ideal foundation for a powerful band. Brad and Noah immediately went to work writing original songs that built upon the classic sounds of their favorite artists of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s to bring rock and roll into the 21st Century.
The Rhinos expanded its sound by adding Dan Raiani on bass guitar and Nick Brucaliere on drums--two friends from Suffern, New York who have been performing together for over a decade in a dynamic duo known as the Sufftown Traffic Jam. Dan and Nick brought a technical proficiency and a steady rhythm to anchor the newly formed Cosmic Coronas and expand the possibility of their frequent jams.
When the time came to take The Cosmic Coronas to the next level, Dan and Nick reached out to another SuffTown native, Alexa Lindberg, who they knew had the powerful pipes to round out this formidable ensemble. From the first moment Alexa sang with the Coronas, it was obvious that she was the final piece to the puzzle.
The Cosmic Coronas, being fans of The Ramones, decided to drop their birth-given surnames and embrace the sonic spirituality of becoming a Corona. Since then, Alexa Corona, Brad Corona, Dan Corona, Kevin Corona, Nick Corona and Noah Corona have been building a loyal following called Corona Nation.
As much musical brothers as bandmates, Eugene Gardner and Daniel Tyler have been collaborating for over a decade, since their early teens. The duo’s distinct style of Americana songwriting and performance drew the attention of Marc Jaffee, who committed to them as producer, manager, and record label, culminating in the release of the group’s debut album, Eugene Tyler Band.
They then hit the road as an acoustic duo to support the album, bringing powerful performances to a variety of music venues around the northeast, such as B.B. King’s Blues Club, Rockwood Music Hall and Nectar’s Lounge. Eugene Tyler Band is presently bringing their classic songwriting and guitar interplay to both new and established audiences, in the hopes of giving everyone who sees them a show to remember, and a song worth singing.
