Imagi-Nation follows the path of the famous partnerships in the history of music... as a duo!!!!!
Carmen DiMaria - vocals and guitar
Pete Christos - drums, vocals
That's it... We started out about 5 years ago in various combinations of bands throughout the Toms River, NJ area. Musical friends and family members would come and go with the different attempts at forming a good ol' rock band. It dawned on us that truly the common thread of all these bands was Carmen and Pete playing together. All the while honing our collective skills to become a serious cohesive unit in it's own right. They have decided to forgo the traditional rock band format to form a very special version to explore the very limits of rocking. The songs have to stand all on their own. Carmen recently started becoming very inspired by God to create some of his best music yet. They have been currently spending time doing ALOT of home recording. Almost daily. They have a catalog of over 350+ original compositions and still growing. Carmen often challenges himself to a write a song a day marathon which has led to lots of numbers.
Both Carmen and Pete have been seasoned in their craft with each possessing over 20+ years of experience of songwriting and performing in front of audiences small and large. Our influences range as a virtual who's who of rock n roll... from The Beatles,Elvis Costello, Frank Zappa, Police, Pink Floyd, Cars, etc.. to Pantera and Metallica is about as best as I can describe it...
Whether we play live as a duo or when we rally up our rotating line-up of "musicians on call" to fill-out our legacy of music... Imagi-Nation delivers the goods EVERYTIME!!!
We hope that our music and our message will speak volumes to the listener on our faith, hope and love of God and rock n roll... and life in general.
