4FRONT is the band that is taking progressive rock and fusion into the future.
An instrumental rock band that combines top-notch playing, cinematic arrangements, and symphonic flourishes into melody-oriented songs, 4Front is accessible to any fan of popular music - not strictly the typical audience of instrumental music.
Fans of Rush, Thomas Dolby, Dream Theater, Genesis, Billy Joel, The Police, Joe Jackson, The Dixie Dregs, Joe Satriani, Return To Forever, and Mahavishnu Orchestra will find familiar elements here - as will fans of film composers like John Williams, Alan Silvestri and Randy Newman.
4FRONT puts the song first - then adds all the other ingredients that make their CDs a treat for fans of hi-fi music played by talented musicians.
RADIO WAVES GOODBYE is 4FRONT's third release. Their second, GRAVITY is also available here on CD Baby.
Guitarist, composer, and engineer Zak Rizvi has worked with many bands and musicians in the NYC area before opening his own recording studio, The Den.
Drummer Joe Bergamini is also a member of the legendary prog rock group HAPPY THE MAN, and performs on Broadway in the Billy Joel / Twyla Tharp show MOVIN' OUT. He is well known to drummers as a writer for MODERN DRUMMER, and a clinician for TAMA, SABIAN, VIC FIRTH, EVANS, and LP.
Zak and Joe performed together for 11 years in the US's premier Rush tribute band, Power Windows.
Bassist Frank LaPlaca comes to the band from top NYC rock acts Eternal Vision and The Buddha Brains. He and Joe have played together for over 10 years.
4Front has performed extensively in the Eastern US and in Puerto Rico, including opening shows for SAGA, MARILLION, and KANSAS.
