Band/artist history
AMPHIBIAN - From Amphibios meaning literally living a double life. The Amphibians dig back to simpler times when vocals were key, melodies integral and lyrics from the heart. They mix this with a progressive backbeat for an appealing new sound unlike any other. Their offering is unique in its freshness, a change and yet preserving valid elements from the past. In a word-EVOLVING. The Amphibians track record speaks for itself and gives an indication of their enormous popular appeal. The versatile songwriting team of brothers Fred and Bob Garaffa hail from Central New Jersey and also perform vocals, guitar and bass in live shows. They have fine-tuned their act at many NYC area clubs including the Stone Pony, CBGBs and the Bitter End. *Garageband.com Chart Success: Achieving three top five songs: 1)New Day (I Feel Alone) reaches #2 out of all genres combined in Garageband.coms Final Countdown (out of tens of thousands of submissions).
