Recurring Dream practices every Sunday in Fedrizzi's basement and hold additional practices before shows. So far, the band performed twice, first at St. Augustine's Church as part of a benefit for Relay for Life. Their second performance was at the Jewish center for the Battle of the Bands. With only a few months of practice and two performances under their belt, how did they win second place in a competition?
The group said their performance stood out because of their energy and showmanship.
"A lot of it was Dave," Fedrizzi said adding the lead singer encouraged the audience to get involved.
"He's not afraid to move around and interact," Kasson added.
"I had to switch guitars, and when I went back [to the stage], there were kids sitting there," Johnson said about the show and the audience's involvement.
Out of the 10 bands present, Recurring Dream came in second place, White Picket Fence came in first and Lee Terrace came in third. The band was caught off guard to have placed higher than bands that have been performing longer than they have.
"When they called Lead Terrace for third, I was like 'oh, no' because they've been around awhile," Justin said.
With a couple of future shows lined up, the band hopes to record a full-length album this summer. To learn more about upcoming performances, book the band or to listen to their music, visit Recurring Dream's myspace page.
