Turkey Trot Approaches

CTP is psyched to be preparing for the 5th Annual Turkey Trot to benefit Elijah's Promise Soup Kitchen. We are honored to be able to provide some great music for the event. Come on down for a good cause in New Brunswick on Sunday November 3rd.

Studio Progress

We are beginning to find our way in the studio. Our first cut One Wing Above Hunger was OK, our second cut Looking Back at Forty is VERY GOOD. We continue on!

CTP Heads to the Studio

CTP will be recording their first album in the summer of 2013. "We have a nice group of original tunes and it is time to share it with our friends", said bass guitarist and leader Chris Trotta. The group is busy honing their eclectic sound which features two guitars, bass drums, percussion, vocal harmonies and trombone. Geoff Gingerich has taken the trombone to new places in several of the bands recent cover tunes and hopes to do the same with the originals. "Adding trombone isn't always obvious, but within any song I find ways to grab the essence of the music", said Geoff. CTP plans to pre-release some of the early efforts, so check back here for some tasty treats.

Hunk of Metal Tour 2012

CTP announces the Hunk of Metal Tour. We will be hitting the road in two weeks to head to Michigan where we will play for several thousand people at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn Michigan.
