VERY SHORT INFO:
They are a new band, but they aren´t newbies. They are very experienced and full of energy and power. Their base is in New York and New Jersey. They won The Hard Rock Battle for New York in 2012. They spent some time in Tree Fort Studios in the end of 2012. Their current album The Brass Balloon was released and took flight in May 2013 - "Throughout the album, a Jim Morrison influence finds itself grappling with a powerful Led Zeppelin-fueled force that, when heavily accented with Karlan’s passionate harmonica, creates a sound exploding with emotion."
The GREAT FRAUD formed in 2012 out of the coils of a few bands in disinegration. Out of the debris Joe Marrero (vocals) and (lead guitar) teamed up with blues (harmonica) player Reese Karlan in a basement session. Shortly after, long time friend and partner in crime bassist Taso Zahariadis joined the collaboration. Reese brought seasoned hard hitting drummer Tony Marchesani into the mix and the chemistry was explosive.
