River City Extension Say  Farewell

    Last week, NJ-based indie rock band River City Extension continued their beloved tradition of performing at The Stone Pony on Thanksgiving eve. Unfortunately, it was their last show ever. After a successful 8 year run, the RCE community came together for one last hurrah and it was magical.

    Mixed emotions fluttered through the air. There were inevitably sad moments, like when frontman Joe Michelini reminisced about Steve Tambone, their drummer who passed away last December. But there were also beautiful moments hidden in each story Michelini told between songs. As the stories unraveled, we learned so much about what went into the band. Michelini talked about when he first started playing shows, how he ended up sleeping on friends couches, and how he ultimately landed a life-altering record deal. We also witnessed something never seen before -- every RCE member, past and present, up on stage together at the same time. The amount of talent and sense of community overflowed the stage and seeped into the crowd.

    Seeing the chemistry between all of the members made me wonder why it had to come to an end. The good news is, they arent done making music entirely. Michelini recently announced his new solo project called American Trappist. Drummer Shane Luck has already released a new EP and former guitarist Nick Cucci now sings in rock duo GayGuy/StraightGuy. RCE left an impressive footprint on the indie folk/rock scene and its just the beginning. Theyre not going anywhere.
