ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
REVIEWS: NEON ALLEY
(DMV Music)

"This three-piece band from Boston has just released their debut album of melodic hard rock that includes a cover of “Jailhouse Rock” and seven originals. The band on this album consisted of David Vaccaro (lead vocals, guitars, keyboards), Mike McDonald (bass, vocals), and Scott Marion (drums & percussion), but Marion has left the band due to a move and time constraints, so the new drummer is Michael Bangrazi from Massachusetts.

The band comes out of the gates with a rocking tight and catchy song in “That’s How It Is,” and sets the template for the rest of the album. A great chorus that sticks in your head, some head bobbing, crunchy guitar and a great beat make for a song that will sound amazing live. “All I Want” is another great track with an early ’80s sound that makes you think that it’s a lost classic…and it is a classic song. The “Jailhouse Rock” cover is tight and well…..it’s a great song. “I Only Want To Be With You” has a touch of a Beatles vibe and is a great slow song to grab your girl and give her a tight squeeze while singing along. “Let Your Lovin Come Down” has a great sound and is so catchy that I started to sing along while listening to it the first time. “Got To Rock” has a touch of Golden Earring to it and is another great song.

It’s a real pleasure to hear a rock band that doesn’t scream at me, play crazy scales on the guitar, or go for an edgy sound, they play clean, but thoughtful and kick-ass hard rock that is timeless and well needed. Grab a copy of this album, put it into your car, roll the windows down and crank it up while it’s still warm out and cruise to your heart’s content.

" Neon Alley, It is loud, it is brash, it is exactly what Classic Rock should be."
- (Simon Barrett's, Blog Talk Radio)

"...David carries a talent for carrying a tune, and there are plenty of those reverberating in hummable hard rock fashion. Highlights are carved out in the form of “That’s How It Is”, a catchy rock anthem and the dreamy echoes of “I Only Want to Be With You”. The cover of “Jailhouse Rock” is another favorite; a refreshing reworking of the classic..."

"This album chock full of guitar-driven modern classic rockers kicks off in fine style with the thunderous 'That's How It Is', and backs it up with the more melodic 'All I Want', before that aforementioned cover, a rather unexpectedly ballsy 'Jailhouse Rock'. Wow, what a brilliant rendition these boys bring to the fore here, which they follow up with the drum-led 'I Only Want To Be With You'.
-(Anne Carlini, CD Reviews, Anncarlini.com)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A solid dose of arena rock in search of an arena, this power trio delivers the kind of classic headbang that will speak for the generation throughout the generations. For teens that go to music festivals where it’s about rocking out instead of seeing and being seen, it’s like the 80s and 90s never left. Hot stuff that raging hormones will totally understand.

Boston, MA – Known for (what the band likes to call) Modern Classic Rock, Neon Alley takes you back to an era when Rock wasn’t about making a quick buck, but about songs written and performed from the heart.

BAND: David Vaccaro – Lead vocals, guitars, keyboards. Mike McDonald – Bass, Vocals. Scott Marion – Drums & percussion

BACKGROUND: David Vaccaro’s story in music has a rare upward sweep. Vaccaro has journeyed from hardscrabble Boston club dates to the 90’s music scene of Los Angeles and creative collaborations with some of melodic rock’s platinum selling vocalists. With the self-titled debut album of his new band Neon Alley (out on DMV Music), Vaccaro revisits that visceral soulfulness of his early days. This collection of originals including a cleverly re-imagined cover is perfectly crafted for sweat-soaked live performances.

David’s previous CD releases under the band name V-PROJECT include LOST DEMOS and NEW MACHINE.

Lost Demos, for the most part an acoustic rock CD, features collaborations and vocals by Robin McAuley (Grand Prix, McAuley Schenker Group, Survivor, Raiding The Rock Vault), James Christian (House of Lords), Christopher Post (Dillinger) and Dennis Gresham.

V-Project’s Lost Demos garnered glowing reviews (see insert) from magazines and blogs in both the U.S. and Europe.

Vaccaro soon began work on his second CD that would be titled New Machine.

With Robin McAuley once again lending his distinctive vocal edge to four of the CD’s tracks, New Machine was a decidedly more amped up affair. A big step forward as well for Vaccaro as he is featured for the first time on five of the CD’s tracks in a lead vocal capacity, making over half of the CD, a one man show.

Reviews of V-Project’s New Machine were very positive, with the tracks You Don’t Care and Disclaimer receiving significant airplay on secondary radio markets around the US and on internet podcast radio shows.

NEON ALLEY: With his new 3-piece power trio–Neon Alley, Vaccaro is poised to give fans a neon blast of guitar-driven modern classic rock. In support of the new CD release the band has teamed up with Boston film Director Vladimir Minuty to create videos for the first two singles That’s How It Is and I Only Want To Be With You.


PREVIOUS RELEASE: V-Project – Lost Demos
(DMV Music)

“The overall outcome of the album is astounding…..Lost Demos one of the finest albums of the year from this region or any other.” (Metronome Magazine, Boston)

“From the start, I was hit by “Only Friend”, written by McAuley/Vaccaro/Post. It’s universally relatable lyrics of gratitude, contrasting harmonies, percussion and Latin style guitar make this one a keeper. “The Good Times”, with its beautifully inviting guitar opening, is also impossible to resist.” (Carol Anne Szel for Inside Connection Magazine)

“These numbers aren’t your usual melodic rock that you’ve heard a thousand times already over the last 15 or so years – instead they are of an electric/acoustic relaxing quality that originally turned you on to the incredible material found on albums like Led Zeppelin 3 and 4 but brought more up to date without losing that bright, glowing, atmospheric style that new technology seems to kill these days.” (MetalliVille Webzine, Sheffield, England)

“A good collection of ballad and mid tempo pop rockers, made even better by some outstanding vocalists.” (Melodicrock.com, Australia)


PREVIOUS RELEASE: V-Project – New Machine
(DMV Music)

“Solid and unassuming, yet deceptively addictive, this is a hard rock album worth hearing.” (Metalstorm Magazine)

“I like this CD very much, especially ”Somebody Like You” and “ You Don’t Care”. The production is good and the guitar playing great.” (Music Producer Tom Werman – Producer of 23 gold and platinum rock albums. Artists include: Motley Crue, Cheap Trick, Ted Nugent, Molly Hatchet, Blue Oyster Cult, Twisted Sister, and more…)

“The New Machine works! These are great tunes for a backyard barbecue!” (Home of Rock, Das Rock Magazine, Germany)

“All the songs are great with at least half going into immediate rotation on my playlist.” (24Rock.net)

“I think Vaccaro has hit pay dirt with the fittingly titled New Machine. Go ahead take a ride, you’ll love it.” (Metronome Magazine, Boston)
