Orange Avenue - Just Refrain


BIOGRAPHY

Orange Avenue is a five-piece American Pop/Rock band from the shores of Daytona Beach, FL. They started up like many previous acts, a diverse group of local musicians, and have since formed into one of Florida’s largest concert draws. Borrowing from the formula of vocals/guitar/bass/drums they’ve added their own twist to the equation with the inclusion of keyboard/percussion player Glenn Sedita to set them apart sonically. The five-some released their self-titled debut CD (known by fans as the orange album) in the middle of ‘07. Building on their hard work and do-it-yourself attitude, the group has currently sold over 11,000 copies of their first CD with no major marketing/tour support other than shameless self-promotion at gigs and on the street. The album garnered airplay from such radio stations locally as WJRR/Orlando and WVYB/Daytona and press from numerous central Florida publications. In the few short years since the album’s release they have shared the stage with The All American Rejects, Rihanna, Smash Mouth, Hello Goodbye, Low vs. Diamond, Egypt Central, Pop Evil and many more talented artists. The band recently released the follow up to the debut CD aptly titled “Reset.” The new material has been described as a more focused and concise effort by the group. From the synthesizer grind of ‘Just Refrain’ to the unapologetic ‘This Time Baby’ and the dance driven ‘Nightwalk’, Reset has a distinct character unto itself. “We went in the studio this time with the mindset to write exciting songs people can sink their teeth into” says Derek Anderson the group’s front man. “We kind of wanted to show all the different styles we were capable of on our first disc. On this disc we wanted to show what we do best” says guitarist Chris Yetter. The track ‘Just Refrain’ has been recently featured on the MLB Network for their games of the week and other various station programming and “No Goodbyes” has just started rotation and receiving rave reviews on WVYB/Daytona. Looking to build on the still growing success of their first record, ‘Reset’ has got the group in the position to widely expand their fan base all while looking to leave their unique mark on the musical landscape.

  2. Hi I'm David Grant Williams, President/CEO
    of Dream Launcher Studios. We've booked this band countless times to perform at a myriad of VIP/Celebrity events.

    The band has a superb attitude and work ethic. They drive the miles and go the extra mile. Orange Avenue is a crowd favorite and can capture their attention for the entire performance.

    I strongly encourage you to purchase their CD's and book them for a show or special event. They are easy to deal with and you will be thrilled with the crowd response to their performance.

    Keep rocking and stay focused on your dreams!
