Our drummer’s Wikipedia page

Terry Silverlight's Wikipedia Page

Our drummer, Terry Silverlight, is such an amazing talent.  And he’s one of the most modest and congenial people that you could meet.

But take a look at his Wikipedia page!  His performance and recording credits are staggering!!  Terry’s earned bragging rights, but you won’t hear it from him, so let me do it for him!!


We’re “Hall of Fame” winners!!

Ariel LIVE showcase footage

Hey, folks!  We are exited to share some live footage from Ariel’s last showcase.  We had an amazingly warm night for the first of October and were able to hold the showcase outdoors at The Assembly Steak House in Englewood Cliffs. (read more below the video)

When I stepped up to welcome everyone I was nose to nose with a praying mantis that was sitting on my mic facing me! We took this as a really good omen. We have the footage of that, so stayed tuned for it, and for more live showcase clips coming soon!

He can rock it!

Our bass player, Gregg Hollister, has an original record out with the band, Marco De Sade.
Gregg sings lead on their rockin’ album.  They are currently the #1 band on the rock charts for ReverbNation.
Congratulations to the Marco de Sade band!
