Chestnut Ridge Brothers Shake, Rattle and Roll as Musical Group N.A.S.H.

BY GEORGE J. DACRE

LogoBryan, Joe and James Nash are dedicated to the world of rock and roll music and have been playing together for the past 10 years in Rockland and vicinity including gigs at the Hudson Water Club in Haverstraw, D&D’s in New City, La Cantina in Valley Cottage and other venues in Pearl River. They are now booking for the fall season.

Bryan, frontman for the band said, “We were trying in early days to find out should we be Emo? Death metal? Or what the hell? So we decided the hell with definitions and picked up our stuff, thought of the past masters who made us shake, rattle and roll and just started to play and N.A.S.H. lives up to that ideal.”

Bryan says if you are in the mood for solving impossible puzzles, come up for air and give a listen to this band. Joe, who plays bass, said the first time he played the role of rocker was in a Spring Valley High School talent show performing “For Whom The Bells Toll” by Metallica. He took time off for college while his brothers continued on and then rejoined the band for good and a return of rock and roll.

James, on the drums, said the band played hole in the wall bars and lots of underground music festivals as well as the popular CBGB’s, with the audience cheering for the music he loves. He takes inspiration from rock drummers such as John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Lars Ulrich (Metallica) and the late great wild man Keith Moon( The Who).
