Steve Luongo -drums, vocals / Mark Hitt - Guitar / Larry Hobbs - bass / Tommy Zvoncheck - Keys - A progressive rock band.
Late in 2001 Steve and fellow Rat Race Choir member, guitarist Mark Hitt formed the progressive rock band TorQue. The two musicians co-wrote 11 songs for the debut album titled TorQue 103103. The original band was started as a power trio with Mark Clarke (Billy Squier) on bass and vocals. When Mark was tapped by his former band for a tour Luongo & Hitt added bassist Jeff Ganz along with Chris Clark on keyboards. Luongo served as producer and lead vocalist in addition to his usual spot as drummer. Steve has said that 103103 is among his proudest musical achievements. TorQue 103103 is considered to be the completion of a progressive musical journey that Steve began with his first band in 1968. TorQue toured nationally in 2003 and 2004. After a long break Luongo and Hitt reformed the band as a trio with bassist Larry Hobbs. They played some one off gigs in 2011 including an appearence at the famed Playboy Mansion in LA. The band recently invited Tommy Zvoncheck to fill the keyboard seat and is once again performing as a four piece group. This progressive rock band is looking forward to playing some "prog" festivals in the fall. Dates will be announced here and on all of the band's media outlets.
