(Merrick, NY) In January 1993, Iridesense was assembled
to play then High Schooler Rick Eberle's 12th Grade Battle of The
Bands with Rick on guitar and vocals, his sister Tara Eberle on Bass, Rob Viccari on Lead Guitar and Rich Drouin on drums. What a difference over a decade makes! The past 14 years have seen the band go from these humble beginnings to becoming a force in the music business!
TV? Their music can currently be heard on Nickelodeon in the shows Zoey 101 (featuring Jaime Lynn Spears) and Drake & Josh. They've also been featured on MTV shows such as Pimp My Ride, Room Raiders, NEXT and on an episode of the show "Boiling Points".
Contests? Iridesense was a semi finalist in the Q104.3 Mojito Band
Search, in the Shift 2 Nissan Battle of the Bands, and were also semi finalists (top 20 out of 1000's of entries nationwide) in the National "Be A Radio Star" Competition where they received airplay in rotation at Z100 radio in NY in addition to a nationally broadcast radio interview with Elvis Duran from the Z Morning Zoo and Actress Amanda Bynes.
Big Gigs? They've played for 13,000 sports fans as between period entertainment at a New York Islanders NHL game, played sold out engagements with Spin Doctors, Something Corporate and Gin Blossoms at the now defunct The Downtown in Farmingdale, and their performance for the
