Forced Call is a "House Rockin" Blues band that will make you leave your seat and get up on your dancin' feet. Their high energy style is something you won't soon forget. It's really a must to see them in person!

John Parker is the leader and driving force behind the popular LA group. They have much more in common than just the love of great "Hot Rock & Blues" music - they are all union brothers and work in the Film and Television Industry as well. Individual talents of each member have a lot of history...

John Parker was raised in Santa Cruz, playing for hire at age 14. He grew up loving the sounds of Django Reinhardt, BB King, Freddie King and Buddy Guy. A score of bands later, he wound up in the Atlanta, Georgia music scene where he found the blues calling. Now, he's back in California playing what he loves about Georgia the most - "the Blues". Respectable names he's had the pleasure to perform with include Chicago Bob Nelson, Big Joe Jackson, Butch Travette & the Alley Cats and the Late Piano Red.

Danny Costello is from New Jersey and began playing at age 13. His early influences were Jimmy Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Johnny Winter. Their great technique and raw emotion was a great inspiration to Danny as he was moving on in his career. He's performed with members of Toto and Joe Cocker. Danny has also opened for Edgar Winter, B.J. Sharp, Dick Dale and Three Dog Night.

Steve Halter started playing piano at age 5 and worked as a full time session player/arranger for over 24 years. Steve grew up under the influence of the old time Rock & Roll piano and organ players like Jimmy Smith. When it's time for his solo, he just closes his eyes, feels the vibe and let's his soul take over.

Tom Costello also hails from New Jersey. His early influences were The Beatles, Jimmy Hendrix, Toto and drummers Jeff Pocaro and John Bonham. Tom's had the good fortune to work with such great artists as Ike & Tina Turner, The DeFranco Family, Christopher Cross, Eddie Money, Rick Springfield, The Elton John Band, Joe Cocker and Jace.

Chris Carson was born in San Diego and grew up loving Blues inspired Rock and Roll. Influences include The Beatles, Edgar Winter, as well as Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble. He's played the LA club scene with various Rock, Blues and Country bands such as Plan B, The Jace Smith Band and House of Cards.

Forced Call's first cd "Off the Clock" was released in January, 2005 and has a little something for everyone; blues, rock and a little country gospel, all wrapped up in Forced Call's unique sound.
