About the Band
Formed over 14 years ago, we've played over 400 shows in the Triangle NC area and every type of event from Festivals, Weddings, Private and Corporate Parties to Clubs. We play regularly at large outdoor events like Cary Lazy Daze, which is the largest crafts and arts festival in the state and other outdoor events large and small in the Raleigh area. Whatever the event, we always have fun and don't consider it a success unless you have a great time as well!
We are a variety rock band and play only popular songs from Top 40, Classic Rock, Funk and Dance that everyone knows and likes. We play every song with energy and precision, recognized by fans and musicians alike, who know they will see only the finest musicians with many years of experience, working hard to make the show a success.
If you are planning a neighborhood, public party or festival, you'll appreciate that we are a very family friendly band and enjoy our fans from age 3 to older rockers and we love them all! We have the right equipment to upsize or downsize to any venue or private party, club or event.
One of our most frequent comments besides how good the band sounds, is how easy and professional we are to work with. We know how important this is to you and know that many people have never booked a band before, so we make sure that picking West Street is the only thing you need to do. We'll take care of the rest!
West Street is a four piece band consisting of:
Mike Forgione - Guitar and lead vocals
Gary Grier - Drums, vocals
Gene Barrio - Bass, vocals
