Local talent Crimson Sky will be performing at this year’s FilmOneFest! The electric blues band met as members of Bruce Gallipani’s Rockit! Live program in the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, NJ. Allison LaRochelle (vocals), Tristan Garrity (guitar), Samantha LaRochelle (keyboard), Dillon Latore (drums), and Paul Reinhold (bass) blend soulful rhythms and powerful vocals to create a unique, modern sound.
In 2014, Crimson Sky was selected to be the youth representative of the Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Foundation at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN, where they performed in both the Hard Rock Cafe and BB King’s Blues Club. Their influences include Stevie Ray Vaughn, Janis Joplin, Buddy Guy, Led Zeppelin, Alvin Lee, Shemekia Copeland, and the Tedeschi Trucks Band. You can hear them perform throughout the Monmouth and Ocean County areas and follow them by searching crimsonskynj on all social media.
