A Better Day awaits for Decarlo as Lightning Strikes Twice

Decarlo’s debut album ,“Lightning Strikes Twice” is a very fine slice of melodic rock, deeply rooted in the sound of masters of the genre like Boston, Foreigner, Survivor, and REO Speedwagon. “Without question, musically Tom Scholz has been my biggest influence. He along with Brad Delp created pure magic in the studio,” tells Tommy DeCarlo. “Brad with his amazing voice and Tom of course being one of the best songwriter/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 the music of the band Boston!”

The song “A Better Day” can be heard below:

 

The band Decarlo originated in Charlotte, North Carolina. 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. As Tommy tells it, Tommy Jr. is truly the backbone of DECARLO. He has a great feel for what’s going to work on stage, not just musically, but production wise, too and leads the charge in the band’s performances. Of course no band is complete without a great supporting cast, which in DECARLO’s case is provided by drummer Dan Hitz, bassist David Netta, and newest member Payton Velligan, who’s a multi-talented keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist.
