Comedian & Actor Chris Roach From CBS’s “Kevin Can Wait” Brings His Hard Rock Band “RIDGEHAVEN” To Patchogue’s 89 North Saturday, December 9th
November, 2017 (Long Island, NY) -- Some may know Chris Roach for bringing laughs to the stage at comedy clubs and theatres throughout the U.S., sometimes opening for his “Kevin Can Wait” co-star Kevin James or solo, but the comic/actor/writer has recently taken on yet another role bringing the jams as guitarist of rock/metal outfit RIDGEHAVEN, who will be performing once again in 2017! The band is set to take the stage at 89 North Music Venue (89 N Ocean Ave, Patchogue, NY 11772) on Saturday, December 9th along with Panic and 45 RPM!
Consisting of Chris Roach on guitar, the band is filled out by Matt McKeon (Vocals), Rob Maresca (Drums), and Mike Warnken (Bass). With a hard-hitting in-your-face sound that brings the best elements of heavy metal to the forefront, each member’s incredible musicianship is immediately evident in their debut self-titled EP due out in the coming months. The friends and fellow long islanders bring the raucous tones and dark lyrics to near hallucinatory imagery, with their live show sure to impress even the most die-hard rockers. With Roaches driving, meaty, and dark guitar chops at the forefront- it certainly shows a new side to the funnyman everyone’s grown to love and shines a lot on his versatility as a performer both on screen and the music stage.
