From the stages of X-Factor’s Fifth Harmony and the legendary Rusted Root comes Pop-Rock Singer/Songwriter/Pianist Talia Denis with Jake Konisky on Guitar, Greg Hemmes on Bass, and Greg Nash on Drums. Talia Denis shows are known for being fun, uplifting, and empowering. Her music is on the edgier side of Pop-Rock featuring great musicianship with intricate rhythms, driven guitar rifts, beautiful piano melodies, and catchy hooks, all while lyrically offering a positive slant on life.
CRUSH was formed in the spring of 2009 when a few 5th grade friends and a 3rd grade younger brother brought their musical talents together to perform “Twist and Shout” at their elementary school talent show. The fun hasn’t stopped!
Five years later the band is stronger than ever. They’ve added more talent to the group and take every opportunity that comes their way.
CRUSH is now a 9 piece party band. They’ve played at every talent show at their middle school and high school, performed at community fundraising events at their church and school, as well as private parties, and restaurants.
In September 2012, CRUSH entered the Saratoga Performing Arts Center ~Battle of the Bands. They were one of nine bands out of thirty chosen to perform, and they won first place! In January 2013 they entered another Battle of the Bands contest at Upstate Concert Hall and took 1st place again!
All CRUSH members are honor students at Schalmont High School and Middle School, in Rotterdam NY. When they are not performing or rehearsing they are busy with many sport and extra-curricular activities such as football, soccer, baseball, basketball, skiing, band, chorus, and drama club.
