“Some time ago in a galaxy far far away ( not really just NJ ) when the big hair, hard rock metal bands ruled, guitarist Jeff Lepore auditioned for a band called Persuasion founded by a drummer/vocalist named Joey Amabile. Persuasion enjoyed a good run in the club scene during that time gaining quite a following. Playing in well-known venues such as Stone Pony, Lamours, Club Bene, JJ Rockers and Studio one to name a few. Jeff then parted ways with Joey and Persuasion, moving on to other musical interests while Joey continued on with what then became Tango Rose. Years later, with the help of social media, Jeff and Joey crossed paths again and they both wanted to get out and entertain people through their love of music. Joey now moving to the front taking lead vocals giving up the throne to his son Joey ( JR) a budding drummer. After several rehearsals starting as a 3 piece project, orginal rhythm guitarist Chris Harvey to stepped in as bassist.
