It’s been said, of all the things Forget the Whale has, a ‘specific sound’ is not one of them. Blues, rock, alternative, R&B, country, funk and nu-metal all become ingredients for Forget the Whale’s veritable witches’ brew.
Forget the Whale is a four piece band hailing primarily from the 6th Borough, America’s Golden Door, Jersey City. The band includes Alishia Taiping (lead vocals, bass) Dan Pieraccini (bass, keys, vocals), Peter Durning (guitar, harmonica) and AJ Zienowicz (drums, vocals)
The four have taken their show on both banks of the Hudson, filling notable venues like The Bitter End in the Village, Lovecraft Bar, The Cutting Room, and Brooklyn’s Matchless Bar in New York, and Crossroads and the Citizen in New Jersey… just to name a few.
What makes Forget the Whale special? One new convert from Brooklyn said, “Every song is completely different. You never know what’s going to happen next.” Let’s find out.
