Rockslide - Classic Rock, Alternative and Blues Rockslide An electric mix of Classic Rock, Alternative and Blues, Rockslide delivers. Rockslide has captivated crowds from Reno to the Bay Area for the last fifteen years. The group has performed at nightclubs, corporate events, and private parties. Rockslide features the fiery guitar work of Dominic Pieranunzio. The "Dominator" is a master of all guitar styles. From the sizzling scales of Joe Satriani to the soulful tones of Robert Cray, the notes spill effortlessly from his stratocaster. Dominic is a veteran of several Ohio based rock bands. He has been honing his craft in Northern California for the past several years. Providing the edge for Rockslide is lead vocalist/guitarist Tony T. Tony has performed in several club bands in the Bay Area and the Sacramento Valley. His high tenor voice is reminiscent of Foreigner's Lou Gramm while his musical roots lay in the blues of the Allman Brothers and vintage Clapton. Filling out the musical texture of the band is multi-keyboardest/vocalist Thad Foster. Though classically trained, his musical influences include Jonathan Cain and Elton John. Thad's southern rock vocal styling brings an added dimension to the group. Hailing from Carson City Nevada is bassist Tommy Valentine. Tommy's 5-string bass provides much of the kick in Rockslide's sound. A consummate professional, Tommy brings many years of experience in performing and in sound reinforcement technology. Kip "THE RIPPER" Kipgen, a veteran Sacramento drummer, finishes off the lineup with his dynamic, driving rhythms. Come check out Rockslide & see Kip RIP IT UP & BURN, (literally) behind his kit. Remember to bring your own blast deflector & fire extinguisher. Whether you want to dance the night away or just experience vintage and modern rock played with a flair of unparalleled enthusiasm, it's a must that you see Rockslide at a club near you.
