We are a high-energy band covering jamming tunes from rock’s greatest — the Rolling Stones, Beatles, Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead and Tom Petty, to name a few. The Tide was founded in 2020 by fellow UVM alum, Adam Larosa (Drums) and Darryl Pardi (guitar/vocals) as a true Greenwich garage band. Our friend Pete Francis (formerly of Dispatch) introduced us to Matt Barcewicz (keys/vocals) who regularly plays with Pete. Jay Anderson (bass/guitar/vocals) joined soon thereafter and ultimately introduced us to the beautiful vocals of his wife Amanda. Our collective love of music is superseded only by the excitement of a shared experience with a live audience. The Tide regularly plays at OG Social, has done several shows at Windham Mountain in the Catskills, played private parties around Greenwich and graced the stage at Connelly’s in NYC.
Lead Vocals / Guitar
Darryl started performing in high school playing acoustic covers with his best friend on Main Street in Nantucket in the summers. They played tunes by the Dead, Dylan and others. A later love of Bluegrass brought him to the mandolin and a decade of covering the Americana greats. His primary musical influences are the Dead, Phish, Allmans and other jam bands...though has a love for music of all genres.
Drums / Vocals
Adam’s rhythmic kicking in his mother’s womb brought his tempo giusto to the world before light ever graced his eyes. A steady diet of Phish, Allman’s and Ozzy dialed him in for stick man in multiple bands and drum circles throughout the patchouli world. After a short dry spell, Adam is back to gracing humanity with his rhythm in The Tide. When not pounding his kit, Adam is hucking cliffs on his skis or gracing the finish line at a regatta. Some days, he sells the lube that keeps the finance world grinding.
Keyboards / Vocal / Guitar
Matt astounded his parents when he began hammering out melodies off the radio on his toy glockenspiel at 3 years old. His early days on Mickey Mouse Club put him alongside Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. Choosing his own authentic path, Matt went to Broadway where he put tears of joy and sorrow in the audience’s eyes. His fine pallet led him to Sommelier school and on to providing fine wine for the rich and famous on Connecticut’s Gold Coast. Matt truly puts the motion in the ocean…a little something some folks refer to as The Tide.
Bass / Guitar / Vocals
Jay was an early musical prodigy having performed with acts ranging from Michael Jackson to Led Zeppelin before he hit puberty. His teenage years took a harder turn with his frequent appearances at CBGB. Recently tamed by his new bride, Jay is returning to his classic roots. When not luring moms with his siren songs at the local playground, Jay enjoys playing a myriad of instruments to adoring female crowds. Occasionally, he does some investment banking. “Everyone needs a hobby!”
Amanda was heavily recruited by Harvard for her soaring vocals and what they saw as a must-have addition to the Harvard Opportunes. She is also wicked sma't. She is the foundation on which Adele modeled her career. Stevie Nicks once referred to her as "everything I had hoped I could accomplish vocally". In her day job, Amanda slings the pharmaceuticals that keep America sane and standing.
