The guys have been playing music together longer then needs to be in print. But we'll admit this, The Return was formed in 1986 and have worked solidly ever since. Their live show is a potent mixture of real classic rock, from The Beatles to Zeppelin, to Pink Floyd to Tom Petty. And sometimes their original music gets thrown into the mix.

With their original music, their approach is album oriented pop rock; their songs are layered, melodic and sometimes experimental. Their lyrics tell a story or have a point of view. With their musicianship and vocal abilities they can easily rock in the tradition of Cream or Led Zeppelin, with a touch of The Foo Fighters thrown in for geed measure, and still retain a Beatle's pop sensibility.

Over the last 20 years they've played nearly every rock club or venue using rock music, in the tri-state. They're veterans of private and corporate parties, New Years Eve Parties and large outdoor stage shows These include openings for Kansas, The Little River Band, B.T.O., 38 Special, Jefferson Starship, Steppenwolf, Blessed Union of Souls, Richard Marx, War, The Box Tops and Loverboy.
They play the corridor from Portsmouth, OH to Charleston, WV. At some point in time you have either seen them or will see them. It's just real, live Rock.
