CrossRoads Summer Concert Series Presents Seraph Project This Friday
Seraph Project, a unique folk-funk band, is headlining the CrossRoads Summer Concert Series at the Midland Park Church of God at 8pm on Friday, June 28. The band seamlessly blends different musical ethnicities into rhythmic and engaging original songs that feature uplifting and encouraging lyrics.
The band performs in various incarnations and acoustic or electric formats, and includes Chuck Zahemski on acoustic guitar and vocals, Lou Albano on electric and acoustic guitars and vocals, Lenny DelDuca on drums, percussion and vocals, Ken Neill on bass and upright bass and Eiress Lamy on flute and vocals.
Members of the Seraph Project have performed and recorded with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, Twisted Sister, Pat Boone, Tito Puente, and created music for radio, TV and film as well as appearing in Broadway musicals. Much of the original material creates musical sound-scapes in a wide variety of contemporary musical styles that sound both familiar and fresh while lyric Biblical truths are conveyed both literally and metaphorically.
Opening for the Seraph Project is Rebecca Abma, local singer-songwriter (and founder of the Midland Park Press). Abma, whose voice has been described as "one part saint, two parts sinner" and ranges from bluesy-country gospel singer to angelic choir girl, will open the show with a short set of original and cover songs beginning at 8pm.
