Originally formed in 2009, Out of the Blue — with a new lineup of seasoned musicians — continues to revel in what we do best. Appealing to a wide range of audiences all over the Capital Region, we strive to make booties shake, toes tap and to encourage epic sing-alongs.
Original band members, Carl Morrone on lead guitar and J’Lyn Coppola, lead vocals, are honored to have Neil Green on drums and Les LaPell on bass from the Now Playing band, a former project the four shared for many years prior to and during the inception of Out of the Blue. We are also honored to welcome long-time local legend Johnny Clifford to join on guitar and vocals - a harmonica-playing slide guitarist who greases his axe with WD-40 on the regular.
Our broad range of musical influences can be witnessed at every performance —featuring genres including classic rock, funk, soul, R&B, Motown and the blues. You might even hear a kazoo thrown in the mix. We have a blast onstage and your energy and feedback are the gravy to our mashed potatoes.
Special events, community concerts, clubs and pubs — we do it all!
