““We’ve kind of adapted with the times. We still have the signature two guitars, and we do a lot of interplay. We used to be very prog rock and into tempo changes, stop and start. The biggest change is John’s writing has gotten a little more refined, and now we do what’s best for the songs.””

"The musicianship of the current incarnation is second to none."

“The working title of DeMarco’s debut solo CD is Everything You Hear; so titled because he plays all the instruments on the disc, including his unwieldy 15-string bass guitar which looks like result of a one-night stand between a medieval lute and a cricket bat.”

“Dave’s talents has him playing genres from country to metal to rap and hip-hop. When I asked him what style of music he is a fan of, he gave me what was probably THE best answer to that question. I enjoyed my conversation with Dave and I learned a great deal from him in this unprecedented 1hour and 30min podcast.”

“Crack The Sky reassures their long time fans, from the first note, that they are in good hands with new bassist Dave DeMarco. His sixteenth note bass line combined with John Palumbo’s mysteriously expressive vocals set the stage in “The Box” for a psychedelic rock track reminiscent of Frank Zappa.”

“Dave DeMarco fits this band like a glove - driving, authoritative lines reminiscent of the first 3 albums but with the added funk upgrade. Kudos to Palumbo and Co for giving the new guy so much air time. Bass kicks off 3 or 4 songs on Ostrich including the lead off track. Welcome aboard DD!”

"In my band (the DDB) I play a 15-string bass through all kinds of pedals so it sounds like the lower register of a Hammond organ. In the other bands I happily assume the role of a supportive bassist."

"What an album this is! Combining classic prog sounds of bands like Yes and ELP with nearly pure fusion and even the occasional modern prog element, Oblivion Sun have created a sound that is unique and powerful."
