Spoonbeach / Press

“South Florida’s premier rock band Spoonbeach lead by Singer/ Songwriter and bassist Joey Cucchiara, Guitarist Bob Lidell and Keyboardist Devon Smith is spicing up their rhythm section with the addition of drummer Adrian Mordaunt. Originally from the alternative rock band Mrnorth from Dublin, Adrian has taken I95 south from New York to add his chops to Spoonbeach’s Fusion Reggae- Funk Rock sound. Adrian has been playing since his teens and after his band caught the eye of an American manager they crossed the pond and moved their operation to New York, USA. Here the landed a record deal with Uninhibited Records which resulted in four separate albums spanning from 2004-2011 . His drumming style is extremely dynamic and detailed and embraces the influences of U2’s drummer Larry Muller Jr. Adrian’s arrival will add a shot of adrenalin to the surging south Florida rockers by conveying his experience touring alongside Van Halen, Journey and Bryan Adam just to mention a few.

"Music that blends different genres generally falls into two types. The first is the complex variety. When it works; it’s art. When it fails; it’s hard to sit through. The second type is music that combines things in such a way that it feels natural. Such is the soundscape created by Spoonbeach. The music is a unique combination of Latin sounds, classic rock, progressive rock, jam sounds, funk and fusion. Yet, it never feels strained. The listener gets caught in the mood and just flows along. While the overall balance of the album seldom shifts far in one direction or another, there are songs that feel more like a certain genre than other cuts. The thing is, whatever direction Spoonbeach pulls the sound, it always stirs the soul and gets under the skin. Fans of classic rock and mellow jazz will certainly enjoy this album. Really, though, it’s hard to imagine that there’s anyone out there who wouldn’t get caught up in the killer grooves." 5 stars out of 5
