MEET THE NEW YORK ROCK
Mike Brindisi(Lead Vocals / Guitars) Entertaining since his high school days in Herkimer, NY, Brindisi has already maintained a lengthy career in entertainment with a diversity rarely seen in the industry today. Getting his start in music as a teenager, Brindisi soon found himself in New York City, splitting time between Saturday Night Live, big league stand-up in the city’s comedy clubs and independent acting, appearing everywhere from MTV2 to the stage to the 2013 film, “The Thin Line.” Now committed fully to The New York Rock, he still finds a way to make himself heard, hosting a show on Ithaca indie station 96.7 The Vine from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays.
A prominent member of the Ithaca business community, O’Leary grew up in nearby Trumansburg, where he grew his voice playing in bands all throughout college. A founding member of the band, O’Leary provides a distinctive voice, lending an artistic flair to the band’s sound seemingly absent from modern rock & roll.
Darrell Harrington (Bass)
A veteran of the national touring circuit, Harrington found his way into the ranks of the New York Rock after stints with Ithaca metal legends Bone Jar and national touring band Superjack. A native of nearby Groton, Harrington has now managed to make a name for himself less than a dozen miles from home.
Marc W Ryan (Lead Guitar/Vocals)
Is a multi instrumentalist singer/songwriter hailing from upstate NY. Marc has opened for many national recording artists, such as critically acclaimed guitarists Derek Trucks, and Joe Bonamassa. His atmospheric guitar playing style is an eclectic melting pot, blending blues, country, roots, rock and soul music. Starting with the guitar at age 12, he immediately began writing songs, in addition to learning a variety of stringed and other instruments to create music with. He brings talent, experience, vocals & a true feel for rock music to the band!
A relative prodigy growing up, Spadolini has played live drums on stage since the age of 8, where he played drums for a sold-out crowd at one of Harrington’s shows with Bone Jar. A one-time attendee of the prestigious Berklee School of Music, Spadolini cut his teeth playing with numerous bands in high school and has maintained a dedicated following on YouTube for both his drum and guitar covers. He first auditioned for the band back in ’09, but was denied because of his youth.
