Title - 'Madison Park'
Artist - The Raz Band

For those not completely in the know, The Raz Band - Michael Raz, Jeff Hutchinson, Joey Molland, Joe Vitale, and Jim Manzo - has been entertaining audiences for over 30 years! In truth, whether you have heard of them or now (and no, please don't get them confused with The Dazz Band name-wise!), they have recorded with some of rock and roll's royalty, along with a fair few unknowns, of course! That all said, The RAZ Band were created a long time ago by leader and founder Michael Rax, and as they were back then, the quintet are, once again here to rock!

Madison Park, The Raz Band's brand new album is a wonderful collection of music brought together over a few years, and in a few studio's around the Los Angeles area. Having toiled away in the rock and roll vineyard for longer than you might think, the release of Madison Park is actually dedicated to the "coolest place to ever grow up," so tells band leader, Michael Raz.

Indeed, Madison Park is the New Jersey town where Raz and his musical partner Hutch (Jeff Hutchinson) grew up. This diverse collection of music, that has had some tremendous production done to it by band members Joey Molland (Badfinger) and drum legend Joe Vitale, and contains an incredible 16 tracks that showcase their collective happy memories from the town that most all still call home.

The first Raz Band album to be created with music legends Molland and Vitale as full band members, whilst they've all been recording together for years, this was the first album that was planned to be an actual Raz Band album; and not a Raz album, if that makes sense. Ergo, The Raz Band released Madison Park.

In closing, band leader Raz has this to impart: "Live your life. If you truly believe it, you can ​accomplish​ what​ever​ ​it is that ​you want​ to accomplish​. Only you can stop you. Have fun, time marches on, so enjoy it​. Even when it's hard to do, look for something uplifting​, something positive. Try to be giving. Like John Lennon said, 'All You Need Is Love'."

Oh, and in early 2016, ​Gonzo MultiMedia will be releasing The Best of RAZ followed by the release of Razfinger in the spring! The Raz Band with Joey Molland and Joe Vitale are planning to perform in Englan​d​​​ and elsewhere ​in 2016 and record a live CD and DVD. So stay tuned!
