ALO: ATOMIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA.
Reproducing the sound of ELO is a tough task. Just ask any musician.
ALO has the goods.
Dennis Schocket's (guitars and lead vocals) voice is directly influenced by Jeff Lynne. "I think Jeff is quite possibly the greatest, most under rated pop vocalist ever." Gregg Simmons (lead guitar and lead vocals) is known for his great fret work but it's his incredible falsetto that gets him noticed here. Gregg says "You can't make ELO music without the high notes!" He's right of course. Veteran keyboardist, John Suskey (keys and backing vocals) takes on the multiple rolls of keys and strings with effortless grace and joy. John says "I think ELO pianist, Richard Tandy is simply amazing. His runs are so tasteful." Violinist Greta Thomas is the newest member of ALO. She brings her classically trained excellence to every song. Multi instrumentalist Bronson Wagner (bass, keys and lead vocals) has the difficult task of reproducing that epic ELO bass rumble, but does so with style and flair. Anchoring all this is drummer Phil Brotman, doing his best Bev Bevan impersonation. "I love this music. Especially the Wilburys stuff. It's just full of joy and love."
It's true what they've said about ALO: ATOMIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA. They sound just like the record.
Catch them whenever the spaceship lands near your town.
