Who We Are
Rewind-Live was formally introduced to the New York scene with the current lineup back in October 2016. Two of the founding members, Teddy & Frank have been playing together for over 25 years in different bands and eventually as a duo. Harold joined in October 2016 to round out the band which is now known as Rewind-Live. We are a classic rock band that performs music from the 60’s through the 80’s featuring such artists as: The Drifters, Badfinger, Buddy Holly, The Beatles & The Rolling Stones to mention a few.
Our fans have been extremely loyal and very receptive to the lineup of music we play. It’s amazing how people still have an appreciation for the oldies as they were originally written and performed. Rewind-Live sticks to the original recordings but does add some new sounds to make it a bit more modern for today’s society while maintaining the songs' integrity.
Over this past year, Rewind-Live has played numerous venues spanning from Queens to Eastern Long Island with stops at Yerman's Irish Pub, Pat’s Sports Bar, Danny’s Steakhouse, Shanahan's Pub, The Blvd and the Nautical Mile in Freeport. We have been fortunate enough to maintain residencies at most of these places for shows on a monthly basis.
Rewind-Live is made up of professional experienced musicians. Our years of being musicians has allowed us to become what we are today. It takes lots of practice, musical knowledge and discipline to be able to play classic rock music as a trio without over-dubbing while maintaining a full rich sound.
