“”VIVACITY, formed in 2006, came together after well-known local band members and childhood best friends Garrett Hickey, Gary Fanali, and Stephen Lorusso bumped into young vocalist Maria Battinelli at Hickey’s family reunion. Seizing the opportunity to begin a totally new project, the four morphed quickly into Vivacity. A dual-vocalist pop/rock act, featuring Battinelli’s newly-fostered powerful rock vocals and Hickey’s flowing lyrics, original vocals and guitar.
Joined by the thumping base-lines of Lorusso and the drum beats of Fanali, the band quickly gained major recognition throughout the tri-state area and national attention online through myspace, iTunes, and the Absolute Punk review staff. Widely celebrated for being in tune with their fans and maintaining an incredible standard of live performances, Vivacity continues to gain attention with the drop of their newest EP, “The Path Begins Here” to iTunes this month.””
When I came across Vivacity, I was immediately drawn to the uniqueness of their sound. Battinelli and Hickey, together at the mic, create a vocal act unlike any other. And behind the vocals come the rip-roaring instrumentals that give the foursome their rock and roll edge. Vivacity is a force to be reckoned with, stop by their myspace page and check them out! You will not be disappointed.
