Green Light keeps shining away and continues to ever evolve into an act that just keeps getting better and better.
The band is proud to be playing a few times a month with Sedona’s own Eddie Barattini.
“Eddie is a legend,” said Green Light bass player Tommy Acosta. “For any bass player wanting to tighten their chops and learn what it is to be as true professional, playing with Eddie is a rare and cherished treat.”
With Chicky Brooklyn on rhythm, Uncle Marc Wolin on trombone/keys and guitar virtuoso Robin Miller on lead, the band wants to make this special concert one they will long remember.
“We are fortunate to attract quality musicians like Uncle Marc, Robin Miller and Eddie Barattini,” Chicky said. Tommy and I are blessed to have guys like them in our line-up.”
Tommy and Chicky met years ago in Chandler, Arizona. Both songwriters from the Bronx and Brooklyn back East, they hit it off and through the years always enjoyed playing together.
When fate brought them together again in Sedona they got serious and recruited the band they have today.
“What can we say,” Chicky said? “We got lucky.”
Green Light plays the kind of songs that were never heard during the rise of the Boomer Generation and now can be heard fresh for those who cut their teeth on the music of the 60s, 70s and 80s.
Songs like “River Deep,” “Home,” “All My Life,” and “Green Light” resonate with their fans. Fans sing along with the lyrics at their concerts. Songs of love, joy, passion, heartbreak, redemption and resurrection define the essence of their music.
It’s never a dull moment on the stage as the band enjoys its report with the audience almost as much as playing the music.
