Foreman, Jon The Defibrillators Band Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Aging Baby Boomers now have a band whose music reflects their refusal to grow old gracefully. As pioneers of Senior Citizen Rock and Blue-Haired Blues, The Defibrillators poke good-natured fun at the foils and foibles of aging in their contagious blues-based rock originals. Billing themselves as “the World’s Oldest Boy Band”. Their high caliber of musicianship is offset only by their subtle theatrics during live performances. Their eponymous CD has garnered rave reviews from The New York Times, Newsday, LI Press, Good Times, LI Entertainment, Aural Fix and other local press. All the good fun aside, The Defibrillators have rightfully been called a Super group by the press.
