Live at the Broadway
They're sexy. They're smart. They're slightly unbalanced. Hailed by The Aquarian Weekly as a band that always delivers 'standout sets,' Stone Soup is a solid rock and roll band infused with blues and soul. Born in the hallowed halls of the Broadway Central Café in South Amboy, New Jersey, the band features John Gray on lead guitar, Noel Gendrano on bass and rhythm guitar, Ken Herskovitz on drums and Rebecca Stark on lead vocals. According to The Red Glare Record, 'Stone Soup is a happening band, especially guitarist/singer Noel, who always tunes his guitar before he gets on stage. That's quite a concept for the average dumb ass musician to understand.' NJ Coast News raves, 'I especially enjoyed the band Stone Soup. Lead vocalist Rebecca Stark's personality was reminiscent of Janis Joplin and her voice was raw and charged with emotion. She seemed to literally pour her soul into every song she sang.' The band has graced the stages of many of New Jersey's best venues, including the Broadway, the Stone Pony, the Saint, Bar Anticipation, Hooligans, Zabba Zu, and the Lemon Lounge. Individual members of Stone Soup have appeared at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and the PNC Bank Arts Center. But don't be fooled by that little stuffiness. They'd much rather be getting down and dirty in the bars and clubs where the occasional guitar to the head makes life that much more exciting. With a fat rhythm and guitar solos that take you places you never thought you'd go, the music of Stone Soup is matched only by the power and subtlety of it's lyrics. Taking inspiration from relationships, the workplace, and everyday life, their songs are always rockin' and always thoughtful. This band has a kick ass sensibility backed up by serious talent and musicianship.
