THE BAND’S FINAL PERFORMANCE AS THE
It is said that “All Good
Things Must Come to an End’ but it’s also said that “The Beat Goes
On”. Such is the case with the newest twist in the futures of six
of the Treasure Coast’s finest musician/singers.
Eleven years ago, Keyboardist Albert Miller, Bassist Lenny Rocco and
Drummer Milt Koster came together to form the popular Treasure Coast
Florida Band, SKEEZIX.
In 2007, the band asked
Guitarist Don Ciccone (hit singer/songwriter of The Critters of the
60s), to join the band. Bringing with him his hits and his record
industry friendships, Don facilitated the name-change from SKEEZIX
to THE CRITTERS (with the help and blessings of his friend Tommy
James of The Shondells).
The Critters garnered attention
from regional newspapers, performed for packed houses at clubs,
private and community events, concerts and shared billing with Tommy
James and The Shondells at the Sunrise Theater in Ft. Pierce,
Shortly thereafter, the band was
joined by guitarist Steve Hoevertsz and percussionist Juan
Etchegorry rounding out the bands signature sound.
Now after six
successful years together as The Critters, the guys will bid
farewell to The Critters as we know it today to pursue personal and
other musical projects.
