Hello All! I know it's been a while since we've posted some "News" about the band but Armed & Dangerous have been going under some major renovations over the past couple of months.
As most of you are aware, Johnny Srsich had left the band back in July of 2021 to enjoy the rest of his time in the good ole' state of Florida. Although we miss him and Christine "Tremendously!" we wish the both of them nothing but a lifetime of happiness and joy in their future endeavors. Johnny is a "Lifetime Member" of the A&D Camp and will "Always" have a place on the stage with Armed & Dangerous....."ALWAYS!"
Gordon Bailey has stepped in to take over the controls of Rhythm and lead guitars as well as backing vocals. If you have lived on Long Island for at least the past 40 years, you know as well as I that Gordon needs no introduction. Gordon is a multi-talented musician who has been part of the Long Island music scene for the past three plus decades!
Back in August 2021, Drummer Anthony Ferrara had to leave the band due to personal reasons. The A&D Camp wish him the best of luck.
Stepping in to the New Drummer role is James Baldassano! Most of you know him currently from the Slayer Tribute band, Show No Mercy. James has been involved with the Long Island Music scene for many years and has played part in many different bands throughout those years. We are honored, to say the least, to have James as the newest member of the band!
Armed and Dangerous look forward to the future of the band having Gordon and James as an integral part of the inner workings and musical output of the band!
'WELCOME ABOARD GENTLEMEN!!"
On behalf of Armed and Dangerous The Band, I would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU and MUCH RESPECT to each and everyone one of our family and friends who came down to the show last Saturday Night.
We are Very Grateful to our friends in the Gothic Wheelers MC for welcoming everyone into their clubhouse so we could put on a proper Heavy Metal Show and celebrate Saint Patrick Day in Grand Fashion!
We, as always would like to thank the incomparable and amazing Mr. Mike Festa of Pro Sound Rentals who not only provided us with the best live sound any band could ask for but also gave us a Sick Digital laser, light, and smoke show!
Of course, no Armed and Dangerous show would be complete without the hard work of Shari Gaines Eisemann and Karin Maas. Thank you, ladies, for all of your hard work and dedication!
And lastly, I would like to give mad thanks and respect to my dear friend, bandmate, and brother for life, Mr. Mike Eisemann for successfully uniting the Long Island Biker community and the Long Island Heavy Metal Community! No other man or woman could have done that the way he did.
"150 PEOPLE AT OUR LAST SHOW!" The numbers don't lie!
Again, much love and thanks to EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU that came out Saturday to support Armed and Dangerous!!!
We are returning to the recording studio in March/April to write and record some brand new ass-kicking heavy metal!
Johnny "Wildchild" Srsich.....
