Danni Ri & Party of 5ive / Bio

The band features vocalist Danni Ri and the members consist of Al Gay, Ed Croker, Edward Croker, Tony Bentley and Steve Schell…the members have all played together 2 years as Party Of Five, and have at one time or another, Played together in different bands. When the band Next-Exit broke up, Steve formed a new band with members Tony and Al…after months of practicing, they decided which direction to move in. They wanted to play songs that no other bands were covering…not to get away from country or southern rock, but to play the ones you never heard anymore. They wanted their music to be different, to bring their audience rocking memories that made them want to dance and sing along to every song…to entertain them. Danni was asked to join the band for her amazing vocal ranges and song writing talents, and we called ourselves Party of 5ive. She brings soul, blues, rock, and attitude to the music, if you close your eyes, you can actually see the words as you hear and feel them, an amazing singer. Then Edward was asked to joined the band becoming our 6th member so we became “Danni Ri and Party of 5ive”…Edward's keyboard skills are simply put” you have to hear it, to believe it” especially when they perform “Crazy”, “2 Out Of 3 Ain’t Bad” or “I Feel Lucky”. Edward is another amazing talent that can make the keyboard/piano do anything, sound any way, and is also the band's recording engineer. The last member to join the band was Ed Croker, Edwards’s dad, who stepped in as a replacement guitar player and is now “one of the guys”. He is a Beatle’s freak which is so cool. He plays lead guitar and provides back up vocals. He is a fun loving guy and probably works the hardest of the band…
