June, 2017 (Long Island, NY) — You may know him as loveable friend “Mott” opposite Kevin James in CBS’s new sitcom “Kevin Can Wait” (produced by CBS Studios in association with Sony Pictures Television) or perhaps seen him out on the road in one of his many stand up performances throughout the U.S., but comic/actor/writer Chris Roach is set to step foot on a new stage in the coming months….as guitarist of rock/metal outfit RIDGEHAVEN! The band is set to perform Thursday, August 17th at Revolution Bar & Music Hall (140 Merrick Rd, Amityville, New York)!
Consisting of Chris Roach on guitar, the band is filled out by Joe Viola (Vocals), Rob Maresca (Drums), and Mike Warnken (Bass). With a hard-hitting in-your-face sound that brings the best elements of heavy metal to the forefront, each member’s incredible musicianship is immediately evident in their debut self-titled EP due out in the coming months. The friends and fellow long islanders bring the raucous tones and dark lyrics to near hallucinatory imagery, with their live show sure to impress even the most die-hard rockers. With Roaches driving, meaty, and dark guitar chops at the forefront- it certainly shows a new side to the funnyman everyone’s grown to love and shines a lot on his versatility as a performer both on screen and the music stage.
