Originated in Charlotte, North Carolina. Fronted by Tommy DeCarlo along 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 multi talented keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Payton Velligan, drummer Christian Sturt and bassist Edward Sturt.
The band’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 Kansas, Foreigner, Survivor, and REO Speedwagon.
“We’re very excited about the release of “Lightning Strikes Twice”!” continues Tommy. “As an artist/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 debut release will in some way/shape or form touch those who take the time to listen to it.” Simply put… DECARLO ROCKS! If you are a classic AOR/Melodic Rock fand, you simply can’t miss this debut album!
