Pros & Cons of Redemption
Sometimes shoes need to be filled. Sometimes they're kicked off on the dance floor. While Palaris may not be a familiar name found on club playlists, the members themselves sure do enjoy to dance around and let loose for the crowd. Frontman Dean Purificato provides a balance of soothing, yet brash vocals that soar above his unique rhythmic guitar parts. Accompanying the pop-rock balladeer is Jon Masella; a restrained, almost mysterious personality on lead guitar - who really isn't that mysterious or quiet at all. On bass and drums, six-shootin Tom Oppelt teams up with Drew Hart to hold down the rhythm section and let you know this scene ain't big enough for their chest-thumping beats. While Palaris is most often confused with the North Star or a similar sounding snowmobile company, they aren't to be confused with just another band trying to play what's popular. All members agree that innovation and progression is key in music today, but to sacrifice something catchy for something 'different' is a letdown to fans across the board. With music abundant with hooks and lyrics that don't try to pretend what they aren't, these boys are all about putting their hearts into what they believe.
