TRNZPRNT (pronounced transparent) became visible after an abandoned attempt at a reunion of the original lineup of Jimi and Casper’s old band. This band had been a well known fixture on the NY tri-state scene in the eighties playing on bills with such artists as BonJovi, Twisted Sister, Angel City aka.The Angels among others. Several rehearsals in, they found that the original drummer was not up to par to complete the project. Recording was set to begin in a couple of weeks in California with a very well known British glam rock star producing the sessions when longtime band friend & ex manager for Enuff Z'Nuff, Tom Feeley, suggested veteran drummer Ricky Parent (ex Enuff, Z Nuff, Alice Cooper) to fill the drum spot . The recording completed, the band had a falling out with the vocalist over personal & contractual issues. As Jimi and Casper had written or co-written most of the songs & with Ricky 's enthusiasim for the material, they decided to head back to NY and form a new band.. Ricky brought in Lead Vocal chameleon, Jim Villani and Jimi brought in G-Man Poster on rhythm guitar and vocals. The lineup complete, the band set its standards high on production quality and recording began with TJ Loughran and Jimi Ambrose producing, along with ace engineer and close friend of Ricky’s, Eric Gast ( Enuff Z'Nuff, Britney Spears, Samantha Fox) assisting on several songs. The result of their efforts is "ICED" The name TRNZPRNT invokes clarity but don’t be fooled: ice is clear as well but is also rock hard and that is what TRNZPRNT does, clearly rocks hard!! UPDATE : Since Ricky Parent's untimely passing the drum stool was filled by Long Island native K Rod who has now been replaced on drums by Dan Bedea whose credits include Deep Freeze a band in which Dan was replaced by Ricky Parent,( talk about things coming full circle). Dan has also played in the Richie Ranno Band (Starz) & SS Steele. Due to scheduling conflicts with Jim Villani, our new lead vocalist is Andy Meyer Jimi's old bandmate from Mirrors Image a band they were in the eighties. Andy is a seasoned performer having performed many shows along the East Coast.
