A staple of the Rochester music scene for almost 20 years, CATCH 22 has played hundreds of shows since forming in 1997. Playing a large variety of cover songs from the 70’s thru today’s cutting edge modern rock their song selection offers something for everyone, from AC/DC, Def Leppard or Led Zeppelin to 3 Doors Down, Kings Of Leon or Maroon 5, they aim to please and do just that night after night.
The members of CATCH 22 have a musical connection that goes back to the 1980’s when guitarist Pete Manuel and singer Dan Mayer first played together in 1984. Throughout the eighties and early nineties each musician went their own way and did so quite successfully.
Guitarist Pete Manuel was a member of MORIAH, who in the early nineties were one of Rochesters most successful rock bands, releasing two compact discs that received heavy radio airplay locally and regionally. Pete was also a member of TALON for 3 years.
Lead singer Dan Mayer toured the East Coast with various bands for about ten years, returning to Rochester in the mid nineties he formed SPECIAL ED, who also released a CD titled “Center” which received great reviews.
Drummer Chris Dembeyiotis who played with the band from 2003-2005, rejoined the band in the summer of 2012 after four years touring the world playing on cruise ships. An excellent drummer and musician, the band is very happy to have him back.
Quality musicianship and a song after song performance, this is a band that if you haven’t seen yet, you owe it to yourself to check out.
