A weekly blog that will feature a different local band from the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas

Introducing HANDEL...

Handel is a classic rock band out of Coplay, PA. Ori started this project in 2009, and we have been blowing clubs away since. We play upbeat classic rock, and the band is in full force power. We cover mostly songs from the 60s and 70s power rock, and where ever we play its a Rock-n-Roll party. You should come check us out. We promise you a fun night of entertainment!

Question 1: For those that have not had the chance to see Handel yet, what are three things you would tell them to entice/convince them to come to your show?

A. We put on a very high energy rock-n-roll show. (If you're coming to hear Metal, you might be disappointed).

B. We love when the audience feeds off of us and our performance!

C.We like to focus on songs that are great classic rock songs, but are not played by a lot of cover bands. We guarantee you will know every song we play, and that's what makes it fun!

Question 2: What are three future goals/visions for Handel?

A. We want to get into the studio and record a demo.

B. We also would like to start writing some original stuff.

C. We would like to play some fairs, and festivals, especially MusikFest, and to expand our playing arena to New York and New Jersey.
