DECARLO originate from Charlotte, North Carolina and is fronted by Tommy DeCarlo, best known
for having performed with Boston since 2007. He co-founded the band with his son, guitarist Tommy
DeCarlo Jr, and, as Tommy Sr. sees it, Tommy Jr. is truly the backbone of the band with a great feel
for what is going to work on stage musically and production-wise, while also leading the charge in
their performances. No band is complete without a great supporting cast, of course, which in the case
of DECARLO is provided by drummer Dan Hitz, bassist David Netta, and Payton Velligan, who is a
multi-talented keyboard player, guitarist and vocalist.
The debut album by DECARLO, ‘Lightning Strikes Twice’, is a fine slice of melodic rock, deeply rooted
in the sound of masters of the genre such as Boston, Foreigner, Survivor and REO Speedwagon.
“Without question, Tom Scholz has been my biggest musical influence,“ states Tommy Sr. “Along with
Brad Delp, he created pure magic in the studio. Brad with his amazing voice and Tom is one of the
best songwriters/producers I’ve ever heard, touched not only me but millions with their recordings.
I could name quite a few other bands that influenced me as well, but none as much as Boston!”
Continuing, he adds ”We’re very excited about the release of ‘Lightning Strikes Twice.’ As an artist and
songwriter, you’re always going to be proud of your work, but there’s nothing more gratifying than to
please those who matter most…the fans! It’s our hope that the music on this release will in some way,
shape or form touch those who take the time to listen to it.”
Simply put… DECARLO ROCKS! Classic AOR/Melodic Rock fans simply can’t miss this debut album.
