|Formed in the early 1990's by singer-songwriter, Mitch Treger & bassist, Jeff Reich, The Emptys are a veteran jazz-rock outfit with talent to burn. Supplemented with Bruce Hornsby guitarist, Doug Derryberry, saxophonist extrordinaire, Professor Peter Fraize and driven by the percussive pyrotechnics of session drummer, Leland Nakamura, The Emptys are a legendary live band.|
In a region overflowing with great players, just being gifted musicians won't get you too far. A band has to have great material too, and it is here that The Emptys shine. With a repertoire of over 100 intelligently-crafted, ingeniously melodic songs, the band never fails to engage and amaze audiences up and down the East Coast.
