Formed in the spring of 2011, Group Therapy is now comprised of Five Seasoned Musicians with extensive playing experience; Bill Carangelo, Drums/guitar, Alex Banlaki, Lead Guitar, Chuck Marshall, Keyboard/vocals; Al Valletta, Bass/vocals, Meghan Geary, Lead Vocals/ Percyussion. All of the musicians in Group Therapy have played in many bands over the years.
With this lineup, Group Therapy has evolved into a goodtime party band that plays a variety of musical genres including classic rock, funk, R&B, country and motown but the focus is always on danceable songs. Group Therapy has been very busy playing out and is looking forward to continuing to spread the love to audiences all over the tri-state area.
If our playing and singing inspires people to get up and shake what their mommas gave ‘em, then everyone is happy! That’s the true meaning of our name “Group Therapy” — playing for us is therapeutic, and when people get up to dance the experience becomes therapeutic for them, too! Group Therapy plays clubs, restaurants, private parties, festivals, fairs, weddings and just about anywhere that needs a band that can make it a “PARTY”.
