The Breakfast is a hard-hitting jazz rock experimental quartet whose music ranges from progressive rock to sonic landscapes. Since the group's inception 11 years ago the band has played over 1,000 shows throughout the country and has released 7 albums. The Breakfast's sound and energy are founded in the psychedelic, but their music features some incredibly well-crafted song structures and melodies. Original members Tim Palmieri (guitar) and Adrian Tromantano (drums) provide the distinguishing characteristics the band has thrived on from the beginning. The two have been described as "reaching near-telepathic communication on stage", ripping through progressive shredding licks and jams without missing a beat. This is held together by the sonic glue of longtime, though newly re-added, keyboardist Jordan Giangreco, and supported from beneath by the jazz sensibilities of bassist Chris DeAngelis.
In 2003/04 The Breakfast accepted their first Jammy award for Best Emerging Artist at The Madison Square Garden Theater along with Phil Lesh, Dr John and other distinguished honorees. In its long career the band has performed with other music greats such as The Wailers, moe, Mike Gordon, Umphrey's McGee, Disco Biscuits, Robby Krieger (The Doors), Garaj Mahal, Soulive, Lettuce, Tea Leaf Green and Particle. Their intense touring schedule has featured appearances at such notable music festivals as 10,000 Lakes Festival (twice), moe.down, Gathering of the Vibes, Camp Bisco, and High Sierra, among others.
Rejuvenated by the recent re-addition of original member Jordan Giangreco on keys, these four virtuosos continue to turn heads with each show. Together they rage forward with renewed mission and commitment to solid performances for passionate and dedicated fans everywhere. The group recently celebrated the September 12th release of its highly anticipated second live album "Live As Is", which chronicles The Breakfast's epic performance at The Field in Bridgeport, CT in February 2009.
