100% Chance of Rainshine

By: Dee Miyamura

The place: The Viper Room in Hollywood, California. The date: February, 20, 2010, a Saturday night. The event: The CD Release Party of “Rock Nation”. The band: RAINSHINE.

Rainshine is a three-piece group. Derek Sidoti, songwriter and lead singer and lead guitarist. Mike O’Halloran is the man on bass guitar. Tim Rossetti is behind the drums.

Their music is intense, a little aggressive with a great deal of attitude. Hard hitting, high energy, and full impact! The adrenalin courses through you as quickly as the beat of their music does.

Derek Sidoti’s voice has a bit of a growl in it, that he uses with great effect. Derek pulls out of his guitar amazing rifts that make you believe there is more than one guitar onstage! It is rare when a guitarist gets my attention so completely!

The rhythm section is handled with the expertise of two amazing men. Mike O’Halloran, and Tim Rossetti. Mike is anything but laid-back on bass, he kicks major ass, getting those infectious deep thumps to vibrate out into the audience. Tim beats into submission his drums, playing with great enthusiasm.

Derek and Mike cover nearly every inch of the stage. Jumping and running in all directions. They expel a great deal of energy, ooze that rock and roll charisma, and pull you into their performance! Before too long, the set has ended and you leave wanting much more!

Rainshine is preparing for an International Tour, and I recommend to all who haven’t experience this trio, to check out their tour dates and get down to that club, or arena, or fair grounds near you!
