|Originally formed in Easton, PA and now based in the Philadelphia Area, Tar Beach is an up-and-coming original music act that has been gaining notoriety thanks to its grass-roots approach to building a fan base. Formed in 1999, the band is known for their tightly crafted rock/pop compositions and energetic live shows. Tar Beach performances are ones that make true music lovers rejoice. There are no fireworks, light shows, or glam gear. Ask any fan, the most memorable aspect of any Beach show is the music and the emotion the band channels through it. Each song screams melody, melody, melody and the band’s instrumental harmonies are second to none.
In March of 2002, Tar Beach completed the recording of its 4-song demo at the renowned MilkBoy Recording Studios of Philadelphia. “Next Road” has been receiving local airplay, proving the compilation of infectious melodies and un-paralleled instrumentation draws the immediate attention of every listener.
