Blacktop Forest / Press

“Blacktop Forest, from North Haven, classify themselves as Acoustic / Psychedelic / Rock. This five member group is more than just a five-piece with vocals. Erik Salvati played this set with keys, harmonica, keytar and trombone. When questioned later, he plays a whole lot more instruments too. The guy is incredibly talented on everything. Lead guitarist, Brian Plant, is the master of his Les Paul and pedals. This guy knows how and when to use effects. Bassist, Rob Finoia just lays down really sick bass lines. The guy can pick and slap...well! Michael Burrone on rhythm and George Thomson on drums just tie the whole thing together. The songs these guys have written are original, have great melodies with good hooks and the arrangements with all the instruments involved are excellent. This band is ready to go into the studio and could tour with any number of current rock artists.”
