About Harpy:
 

Harpy first came into existence in the early 1970's, comprised of five classically trained musicians from Long Island, NY.  In a decade boasting the talents of many distinguishable bands from the NY area, Harpy with their brash style, prodigious talent and unequaled musical signature, stood out from the pack.


To their many fans, these were not just a bunch of gifted muses, who just by happenstance, had fallen into the same symphonic cauldron - this was a true "musicians Band"


Harpy continued with the same arena-rock sensibility, driven to recreating the bombastic and intricate flourishes of the most progressive bands of all time.  Their impressive arsenal hosts many of the greatest works of such bands as Yes, ELP, Peter Gabriel, and the Beatles.  As many of the bands fans will attest, this Harpy is exciting, complex, but always satisfying.  A band that takes unbridled pleasure in delivering each musical idea they mimic or create to the apogee of artistic accomplishment.


Gary Gerber, Errol Allahverdi, John DiGaudio, Jimie Martino and John Blanco, the original Harpy, were musicians of the highest order.  Whether classically trained or Jazz influenced, they pioneered and infected every note of the rock they played with a musical perfectionism rarely seen or heard from in their day.


Now John Blanco(Formally lead vocals with "Spys" who released two excellent CD'S on Atlantic Records), vocals and Errol Allahverdi ( keyboards and vocals), have resurrected the passionate spirit of this great band, adding to the ranks the guitar virtuosity of Michael Barberich ( Barnaby Bye, 45RPM ), multi-talented Michael Hack ( guitar, keyboards and background vocals), thge bass brilliance of Larry Acunto and  the prog-perfect drumming of Al Vetre.  A band with a rich history, a band with new blood, a band whose legacy lives on.


In 2010 the band released it's first CD on Dreamscape Records, blending the bands talent to produce a fantastic CD of original progressive music that has been written by the band and recorded over the years.  If you love progressive rock, you will love Harpy.
