Formerly The Emeralds... Straight up rock with the spirit of bands like Cheap Trick.

From CityBeat... It takes nature thousands of years to make a brilliant green emerald. It only took Sammy Wulfeck, Brian Kitzmiller, Peter Underhill and Ric Hickey a matter of days to make The Emeralds. And from the start, they were brilliant in spite of being green.

“It was really just to get together and rock out,” says Wulfeck over lunch at Amol in Clifton. “The chemistry was there immediately. We jumped into a couple of covers we talked about trying, played them twice and nailed them.” The Emeralds shimmered into shape when Kitzmiller’s previous band, The Trojan Rabbit, imploded on the eve of an already booked East Coast tour. Kitzmiller contacted Wulfeck, his former bandmate in The Stapletons, about getting together to jam back in April. Wulfeck brought Hickey into the session, Kitzmiller brought former bandmate Underhill, and the chemistry among the quartet was instantaneous.
