NTOR formed around a neighborhood nucleus of keyboardist, Jenny Aguiar with Wyatt Sempliner on bass and Kain Summerlin on lead guitar and quickly expanded to include vocalist, Joe Panico and Ben Roberts on drums. The band's first appearance before a live audience was a suitably humble gig -- the South Salem School talent show. The event whetted the band's appetite for more performance, and they went on to appear at such diverse venues from The Crash Mansion in Manhattan to The Stephen Talkhouse in Eastern Long Island. NTOR has played their music to help raise awareness and funds for many charity organizations including The American Cancer Society, Autism Speaks, and The Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation. They have recently celebrated the release of their new album, All Is Fair.
The band's love of music has held them on a path of discovery picking up classic rock covers of groups like The Beatles, Journey and The Police along with punk, alternative and even electro-pop sounds from the likes of MGMT, Phoenix, U2, Ramones and The Black Keys. This wide range of musical genres has created a sundry landscape as a backdrop to their original works. Please check out our website www.NTORband.com for more information, videos, and photos.
