Tragic Orange is Phill Skiba (VX), Christina Vitucci (D), Jimmy Pavlis (B), Steve Valdez (G) and Victor Fakhoury (G). The 5 piece rock band hails from Long Island, New York, portraying a very strong international phenomenon with each member’s different ethnic background and North American upbringing; they have brought the missing link in the sound for today’s modern music.
The band was formed in 2005, and after many auditions and a very solid self titled album under their belt, the line up was finalized with the joining of Jimmy Pavlis on bass and Victor Fakhoury on guitar. The band quickly grew musically as the 5 members made sure to mold themselves on to one another’s inspirations and musical taste. With an endless amount of hours in the rehearsal studio, the band’s sound has grown and developed dramatically. Their melodic and haunting verses and brightly open hard hitting catchy choruses as well as their mind invading sing along vocals won’t stop ringing in the listeners head.
They have captured the hearts of many fans through their unique musicianship. Christina’s power drumming reminiscent of John Bonham, keeps the strong back bone timing of the band in check. Jimmy’s hard thumping bass patterns and driving rhythms keeps you locked into the music, with Steve’s guitar playing creating a landscape of sound typically not heard out of a guitar. Vik’s rhythmic playing and worldly trippy effects makes you feel the trance within. Tying it all together are Phill’s soaring melodies and lucid poetic lyrics that reaches out, grabs you by the throat, and intensely shakes your subconscious until it feels every last word that is uttered from his voice.
The stage presence of Tragic Orange is known to be one of the most energetic experiences crowds have witnessed. The band has performed on numerous stages ending 2007 with over a 100 shows played in and out of state in front of many fans that remain loyal to the music, the madness, and the method behind the Tragic…
Tragic Orange’s musical and lyrical journey consists of all walks of life, the ups and downs the bright and dark, spiritual and sexual, aggression and confusion; examining what’s on the minds of the youth of this generation but light hearted enough to enjoy this chaotic party. Keep your eyes open and your ears to the ground for Tragic Orange’s accelerating momentum towards success, exploding on to the scene soon for the world to hear.
