As Long In The Tooth band member Jeff Marsh puts it, “we’ve reached a point in our lives, and in our music, where playing together is a bigger thing than our egos.” For Long In The Tooth, it’s about inviting the audience to share in the energy and excitement of the music they create, especially on a live stage.
This rock band is a group of musicians who were raised on, and inspired by, a broad range of musical styles. Each influence layers together to create Sacramento’s unique sound known as Long In The Tooth.
Chris Holland — For Chris, the position of lead vocals also means lead showman. In Sacramento’s live entertainment venues, his enthusiasm for their music radiates and the audience can’t help but join in. His vocal training started at an early age in church choir, then transformed into a love for country and rock music. But at heart, Chris is a poet, a trait that also helps him as a lyricist.
Jeff Marsh — Jeff is the musical explorer of the group, searching out sounds in every genre that will enhance their classic and hard rock flavor. That may mean one song has a flamenco-rock influence while another might be edgy rock blues. Either way, Jeff has a passion for integrated sound with a focus on “rock fusion”. As the band’s primary music writer, he creates original tracks that express both soulful experiences and entertainment, thereby appealing to a wide audience.
Chris Alosi — Music isn’t a side hobby for Chris; it’s a rich family tradition. The son of a big-band era music leader, Chris mastered a variety of instruments including drums, guitar, trumpet and bass. This versatility can be attributed to the influence of musical greats from Elvis and Frank Sinatra to rock legends like AC/DC and Judas Priest. Throughout his music career, Chris has played many live music venues across Arizona, Nevada and California.
Joe Moody — Joe is a classically trained drummer whose breadth of experience spans orchestral, jazz, delta blues, 50's doo-wop, rock, and heavy metal groups. His life-long drumming skills, coupled with his love for all types of music, are key to the Long In The Tooth rock flavor. Joe has spent many years in the live music scene.
