A Band a Day...Doubledge

In almost a year, my blog has traveled to many places. We've gone overseas, we've gone to Alaska, but in the past week or so, my attention has turned a bit closer to home. This next band lives in my backyard of the Bronx, New York...but the hilarious thing is that I haven't seen them perform live.

Doubledge is:
Efrain Goyco (Vocals)
Jason Cruz (Guitar)
Manny Ferrer (Keyboard/Backup Vocals)
Larry Abreu (Drums)

This band plays Christian rock that I feel would fit just fine at the Cornerstone Festival.

The band formed in 2001 and has evolved tenfold since then.

Efrain's voice has a bit of a different approach to harder rock music. He still screams and such, but there's a bit more of pop and R&B in his voice. It's a mix of the stuff that's heard largely around him.

Jason is more classically trained.

Manny has more roots in hip-hop and newest member Larry has been a drummer since he was a child.

Think of it as a Christian rock version of Ill Nino mixed with a bit of Creed, Ra, and Red.

They've generally toured the Northeast, but hope to branch out and I think they have the chops to do it. 

To give you an idea of what they may sound like live, here's a compilation of live songs beginning with their Christian interpretation of "In the Air Tonight".
