Effengee's Christmas Tree
THE EFFENGEES 'Like a Garage Band - Only Louder' Spontaneously combusting in 2001 on the shores of beautiful Pawtuckaway Lake, the then yet to be named EffenGees jammed in a seaplane hangar. Unknown to them, locals would 'raft-up' their boats and dance to their music, so the group was stunned when their first gig opportunity came to them from one of these 'eavesdroppers'. Deciding to get a little serious and starting the band were current band mates; Tom Duffy on lead vocals and guitar, Dave Finn on drums, Brian Goetz on percussion, guitar and back up vocals, Dan Mathis on lead guitar, harmonica and back up vocals and Dave Renouf on bass. Recently joining is Bill Quigley on vocals and guitar. This eclectic rock and roll nucleus is often joined by the past members and local guest singers that are always welcome when the can make it to a gig. This is a band about friendship. Everyone gets along and the fun is unstoppable. Frontman Duffy engages the audience with wit and enthusiasm while band members trade licks and laughs with each other and the crowd. It's not unusual for someone singing along to get dragged onstage to join the band. Playing everything from Aerosmith to ZZ Top with raw energy, they say "never bring a chair, you won't need it". After several "Live At The Lake" CDs The EffenGees are now releasing through Transit Music Group "An Effengee Christmas Tree" with all proceeds going to a great NH charity.
