Calisus – Alternative Rock at It’s Best
Calisus knows that since the alternative rock movement Adult Oriented Rock music has been hard to come by. They are a rock group centered on blistering guitar solos, arena rock performances, thunderous foundations, & melodic vocals. Most rock music today is branded and given the Saturday morning cartoon lunchbox treatment. They give a classic vibe with a modern edge and fresh sound.
Calisus is Growing
Over 400 radio stations across North America play their songs. Over 6.000 copies of their debut album, mastered by the legendary Howie Weinberg, sold within the first year of its release. They look to revolutionize rock n’ roll with its live performances, timeless sound, and new form of music distribution (to be introduced later this year).
Influenced by Rock, Metal, Blues, Soul, and Contemporary Pop, Zach Constable, Patrick Koch, George Koch and Chris Badolato set to form a modern rock band with an identity of their own while maintaining the integrity of the roots of rock n’ roll. Hailing from the Baltimore, MD area with sold-out shows, various tours, and booking with acts such as Days of the New, Cold, RATT, KIX, L.A. Guns, Charm City Devils, and more, they are in the process of recording a new EP set for release in 2011 and gearing up for a major tour. They live for their live performances having booked 2 college tours, 3 Nationwide charity tours, 2 state fairs, and 4 independent headlining tours.
Calisus Means High Energy
“They are a high energy, alternative rock band whose live performances have inspired the trademark tag line, “Some bands just have to be seen live. Influenced by Classic Rock, Modern Rock, contemporary Pop Rock, Hard Rock, Grunge, Progressive Rock and Reggae, their diversity attracts a similarly diverse audience (18 — 50).
Their new album was mastered by the legendary Howie Weinberg (three decades of multi-platinum albums including Soundgarden, Oasis, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, and recently with Smashing Pumpkins, The Killers, Muse, The White Stripes). Their newest CD continues Mr. Weinberg’s long history of bringing his genius to rock’s next generation of great talent. They are a band that just has to be seen live.” — BroadJam”
“Executing a unique internet strategy that extends to promotion of live events, the band even has the Calisus live crew, fans that organize bus trips to venues that they play. The band is technologically fully equipped, but prefers to use a venue’s equipment if that is what produces the best sound.
They have up to three hours of original music, plays sets tailored to the audience that each venue attracts, and mixes in covers as diverse as its audience and its own original music (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, Bush, The Doors, CCR, Oasis, Rolling Stones, ZZ Top). With a non-stop front man , power drums and complex guitar work and musicianship rarely seen in Rock N’ Roll, no one leaves a their shows unfulfilled, everyone leaves with a unique mix of energy and exhaustion.” — mBus
