Meeting Geddy Lee

It’s not often when you come face to face with a Rock & Roll legend. But today was such a day as Jesse was able to meet one of his musical heroes at the Waterfront in Homestead, PA.

Geddy Lee, the frontman and bassist for the prog rock band Rush, was signing autographs at the Barnes and Noble bookstore as he was promoting his book, The Big Beautiful Book of Basses.

He spent a moment with each fan engaging each one as if they were the only ones in the room. He was friendly and thanked us for coming out for the event. Although the meeting was brief, it definitely ranks up there as one of the highlights of the year!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We’d like to express our thanks today for all the support from everyone this past year! Trevolta had a huge year. We had a ton of shows in Pittsburgh, Millvale, Wexford, Butler, Grove City, Evans City and Tarentum, just to name a few. We rocked Jergel’s Rhythm Grill and Hard Rock Cafe. We spent some time in the recording studio in Dormont – which was a total BLAST!

There were huge opportunities all year long and we had such a great time. Special thanks to our friend Matt Muckle who mentored us along the way. Matty Vaughan at Hollywood Studios of Pittsburgh very patiently worked with us as we recorded our EP, which is due out soon! A big thank you to Darren Miller for designing our SUPER AMAZING logo!

We are super thankful for all the fans who came to our shows. And super grateful for Matt, Matty and Darren for EVERYTHING!

New Band Logo!

We are so excited to debut our new band logo today! Many thanks to our amazing and talented friend Darren Miller. He is an awesome musician AND graphic designer. He heard us as we described what we needed: how the logo had to match who we are as a band and how it had to visually reflect the music we produce.  We wanted the imagery and the font to stand the test of time.  He took our ideas and created exactly what we were looking for. We couldn’t be happier with the way it represents our band and our musical vision.

Epic Photo Shoot for the Upcoming EP

We had an EPIC photo shoot recently in Ambridge for the album art that will be on our soon-to-be-released EP. You will see some of those photos very soon. Details also coming soon on how YOU can get your hands on this new music. It will blow you away!

This shot, which isn’t for the new EP, was at a place we found on our way to lunch this past Saturday in Bloomfield.

Promotion on Star 100.7

This week was Julie Zarnick’s first day on the Bubba Show on 100.7 Star Pittsburgh Radio. Julie has introduced our band at a bunch of gigs over the last couple of years, so we’re wishing her good luck and hope she has a ton of fun on the radio!

Our band manager Sean called in to say HI and to plug our band. Take a quick listen:

EP Recording Update

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, squeezing in the last few gigs of the summer season AND keeping late hours in the studio. We’ve been working real hard on three killer songs that will be featured on our new EP! This past week we successfully recorded some guitar solos and voice tracks at Hollywood Studios of Pittsburgh with our amazing producer Matt Muckle and fantastic engineer Matt Vaughan.

We don’t have a date yet of when the EP will be released, but we’re hoping for sometime in September. Check back often for updates! We will keep you informed of how you can get your hands on our new stuff!

In the Studio – Recording an EP!

For the past several months, we have been in the studio working hard on recording an EP! We’re getting to the end of the process of recording the instruments. Essentially all that remains is to add the vocals and a few effects, and then the engineer at Hollywood Studios of Pittsburgh will create the finished product!

We’re hoping to have something to share with our fans by late Summer or early Fall. Check back to get further details on this exciting release and to see how you will be able to listen to these hard-hitting Rock & Roll tunes!
