Downstage:

Charlie Berezansky -- lead vocal, guitar
Jim Regan -- 2nd vocals, guitar
Todd Raupp -- bass
Justin Hetrick – drums

Central New Jersey’s Downstage initially formed in 1995 when Charlie Berezansky and Jim Regan met on a bus ride home from school. An instant bond developed between the two young musicians and, by 2000, the current line up (consisting of Berezansky on lead vocals and guitar, Regan on guitar and 2nd vocals, Todd Raupp on bass and Justin Hetrick on drums) took final shape and they have not looked back since.
Dispensing a uniquely accessible blend of alternative hard rock and deliberate song craft (comparisons have been made to Chevelle, Incubus, Quicksand, Cold, Alice in Chains and Stone Temple Pilots), this hard-working, hard-hitting, hard-as-nails four piece is a music force to be reckoned with, amassing more stellar accomplishments in their short time together than other
