|Raq - Ton These CD
Self-described as high performance rock and
roll, RAQ have been steadily building an army of fans over the last
five years through relentless touring and have become known for their
adventurous, energetic live shows. The band's steady rise to success is
attributed to their ability to captivate an audience with their energy,
creativity, and passion for performing quality music.
RAQ's compositions are grounded in solid song structures, but the music
is malleable enough to go in infinite directions in the live setting.
This is what keeps the quartet's devout following and first time
listeners yearning for more as the audience is taken along on a
collective journey. Each time they perform, RAQ gathers newly devoted
fans with their infectious sound. Their extensive repertoire of
original compositions and eclectic selection of covers give the band
the freedom to create a unique set list for every show. The music has
matured with age and experience, evolving into a sound that is both
retro and cutting-edge, helping RAQ connect to generations of
grassroots music fans. They continue to tour relentlessly, leaving
every ounce of energy they have on stage each night and delighting the
senses of the most discerning rock and roll aficionado.
Ton These ignites these senses right from the first track with
the anthemic and concise "Walking in Circles." Todd Stoops adds
uncompromising rhythm and texture (keyboards, organs), Jay Burwick
(bass) and Greg Stukey (drums), RAQ's unstoppable rhythm section, lay
the perfect backbone for Chris Michetti's note cascading,
awe-inspiring, guitar playing. Tracks like "Bootch Magoo," "City Funk,"
and "One of These Days" will have you signing up for the Air Guitar
World Championships before the last note is played. "Forget Me Not"
evokes the swagger of early Ben Folds recordings. "Glimpse" will carry
you down the musical roads of your memory, complete with beautiful
backing vocal harmonies courtesy of Aya Inoue. Much like a live RAQ
show, "Ton These" is a multi-dimensional listening experience.
