This week for Hard Rock Hideout’s “Fresh Blood” we are taking a trip down south, I mean way down south as in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to check out the band Pleasure Maker. The band first came together in 2001 in Rio de Janeiro as a follow-up to a Bon Jovi cover band by the name of New Jersey. The band which is now made up of Alex Meister (Guitars), C. Marshall (Vocals), Andy Starr (Bass), Sandro Rossi (Keyboards), and Adriano Morais (Drums) plays 80’s inspired hard rock that you would expect from a band that is heavily influenced by such bands as Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Danger Danger, and Winger.
Pleasure Maker has released two albums 2002’s “Love on the Rocks” and the 2008 follow-up “Twisted Desire”. Songs such as “Come N’ Get It”, “What We Left Behind”, “Is There A Doctor In The House”, and “Eden’s Fruit” will make any fan of 80’s hard rock proud with the scorching solos, keyboards galore, and great gang backing vocals.
