“Hot Ice” – STATEN ISLAND, NY – 1974-1975 – Prog Rock

I can recall the first time I heard my dad’s songs. I had never heard anything like it. And at 30 years old I have still not heard anything else quite like it. Its uniqueness is powerful because it encourages the listener to experience music in a different and deeper way.  While not mainstream, they still played Clubs in NYC and Staten Island and had loyal fans. –Tom DeMarco, son of Guitarist Tommy Marcinek
