Colin Schiller and the Reactions

In 2010 N.Y. native Colin Schiller decided it was time to put together a band that would celebrate life's excitement through music and simple stories. Colin Schiller and The Reactions are on a mission to bridge the the gap between the performer and the audience with catchy, friendly, concise rock n' roll and a love for 80's pop culture.
Schiller has always been a natural born entertainer, both on and off the stage and spent years as as "the maniacal drummer who sang harmony" in Brooklyn's vast rock scenes. Some of these bands accomplishments include stints on the Vans Warped Tour, CMJ Music Festival, as well as other national and regional tours opening for artist such as David Lee Roth and sharing bills with Taking Back Sunday and Katy Perry. Schiller also moonlighted as a well known karaoke/party host and promoter in Brooklyn's Williamsburg and New York City's East Village club/bar scene.
Enter California native bassist/producer Jacob Silver (Pete Seegar, Tao Seegar, The Mammals, The Shalants), a good friend who shares a common love for karaoke and Huey Lewis and The News. Together they began working on the bands debut E.P. "Endless Holiday" (which is slated for a 7" inch/digital download release in late summer 2010) The band and the recording project has grown to include guitarist/vocalist John "Lucky" Wlaysewki, guitarist/saxophonist/vocalist Geordie Austen , saxophonist Joey Johnson , trombonist Andrew Hagerty, and keyboardist Rick Smith (who is also mixing the record). The video for the first single "Dizzy", features Project Runway Season 5 alumni Kenley Collins.
