The Band


“The groove does not discriminate!” as one fan put it. When these guys play, people see why. RIIZA is a hard rock band composed of four young, impressionable youths. Their sound is a mix of early 70’s rock groove with a 90’s flair. Their main influences are Soundgarden and Led Zeppelin. The band is looking to make a name for themselves in the hard rock scene.(mainly with the use of loud and outrageous riffs) And they want to be your next rock act! This is a band that knows how to use high octane energy to get people going. Their music gets people to forget about their comfort zones and just move. They write songs that sound like they were written years ago, then just for good measure, pack them with a grunge blast. Whether you’ve got a broken back, you’re stuck in crutches, or just feeling down from a long day, NOBODY is safe from their music. Ari and the Giacchetto brothers, Justin and Kevin, met back in 2012. When looking for a drummer, they found Sean through a mutual friend. They have an EP up on Spotify and Bandcamp called Roots by RIIZA. They’ve been invited back to play venues all over Westchester, NYC, and CT, and have opened up for big acts like Blues Traveler and Living Colour. They aim to impress, and are a must see show worth every penny the ticket cost you.
