Metal. Hard Rock. Power Metal. Progressive. Categorize them any way you want, this band rocks with a vengeance and won’t quit until they’ve shown the world what a five-man band can do. Armed with some of the finest songs written in this or any genre, the Squadron combines virtuosity with finesse in order to create an emotional impact on the listener unrivaled by their contemporaries. Substantive and relatable lyrics that draw you in and captivate you. Memorable melodies and rhythmic hooks that stick in your head for days. The sound of rock music as it was meant to be played, loud and unadorned. The members of the DDS are all at the top of their game. Andrew Ross is a singer who has the raw intensity of a young Paul Di’Anno with more range and control. Guitarists Angus Clark and Aurelien Budynek play in lockstep with each other, whether it be on rhythm parts or hyper-speed lead lines. With differing yet complimentary solo styles, this is a guitar duo that will stand up against Tipton and Downing, or Li and Totman. Bassist Chris Altenhoff and drummer Jason Gianni hold it all together, keeping the groove even in the oddest of time signatures.

Riff Raff (AC/DC Tribute)
RIFF RAFF has been rocking clubs in NYC and NJ for the past 4 years. Known formerly as HIGH VOLTAGE, they changed a couple of members and renamed the band RIFF RAFF. They've performed at Arlenes Grocery, Brooklyn Bowl, Crossroads, Stanhope House, and the Great Notch Inn to name a few.

They play AC/DC songs precisely, note for note. Singer Carlo Pepe blows crowds away, nailing the Bon Scott songs and the Brian Johnson songs with a power and authority that has to be seen to be believed. Lead guitarist Jim Romano performs Angus Young riffs and solos perfectly. The rhythm section is tight, and they all sing terrific back up vocals to complete the AC/DC sound! Ron Rossi on rhythm guitar, Tim Kealey on bass, and Rob Cantwell on drums.

They play all of the hits, and dozens of gems! Included in their repertoire is the ENTIRE BACK IN BLACK album, the ENTIRE HIGHWAY TO HELL album, plus hits and deep cuts from every album.
