Don't let the name fool you. The Jersey Shore based cover band Rock Bottom is quickly rising to the top of the NJ club
date scene, playing bigger rooms and racking up prestigious gigs at corporate events, weddings and festivals. As their
website proudly proclaims, they are New Jersey's “premier rockin' party band” and you need only watch a few minutes
of video from their live shows to see that they're not exaggerating.

People go crazy for Rock Bottom. Lead singer Rich Villalva, a born and raised Jersey boy with a mile-long resume and an
astonishing vocal range, jumps out into the audience and gets them riled up. Whether he's belting out a Journey tune,
leading a sing-along of Bon Jovi's “Living on a Prayer” or doing a mean Sean Paul impression on current top forty hit
“Cheap Thrills,” Villalva is a vocal chameleon who knows how to work a crowd.

“I love to challenge myself by being as versatile as possible,” admits Villalva. “As much as I love to sing country and
alternative rock, it's fun for me to rap like Pit Bull and come out with stuff nobody would ever expect.”
Indeed, versatility and crowd participation are what make Rock Bottom stand out from dozens of other New Jersey-based
cover bands. The band has been around in some form for the better part of a decade, but only one member remains
from that original line-up.

Marc Coccio, the uber-talented guitarist whose skill with a guitar synthesizer, allows him to double as a de facto keyboardist
in the band, is the last one standing from the old days. “We weren't that good back then,” he confesses with no trace of
sentimentality.

A couple of years after Marc, Pete Weber joined the band. A gifted musician whose cover band pedigree includes the
popular seventies-centric Superfreak, Weber is a guitarist who clearly enjoys rocking out on AC/DC and Def Leppard
tunes, but brings the same mastery and enthusiasm to the full spectrum of Rock Bottom's repertoire.

On bass is mystery man Chaz K. When asked what defines him as a performer, he responded: “I refuse to answer that.”
Reticence notwithstanding, Chaz makes it look easy to keep the crowd jumping as he “lays down the boogie” on songs as
far-ranging as Justin Timberlake's “Can't Stop the Feeling” and “Rock and Roll All Night” by Kiss. We think he's from New
Jersey, but he would neither confirm nor deny.

The newest member of Rock Bottom is female vocalist Raquel Ramos, a native New Yorker with a long history on the
wedding band circuit as well as performing her own original music. Her vocal harmonies with Villalva on songs like the
Charlie Puth/Meghan Trainor duet, “Marvin Gaye” have elevated Rock Bottom from “bar band” status to a more versatile
and polished level.

Tony Bisulca, the only other New Yorker in the band, is a talented and energetic drummer whose years of experience in
wedding bands and countless rock bands can be heard in the consistency and fidelity of his performances, no matter
what the genre. He also acts as Rock Bottom's booking contact and is optimistic about the band's future. “Everybody
who's seen our new video content loves it. We're booking more shows, getting great feedback, and it's only going to keep
getting better.”
