What people are saying

Brian Hay
Saying that Frank Deresti and the Lake Effect made a strong impression right off the bat would be a gross understatement. Their opening bars came out with a degree of immaculate tonality so perfect it often seems that something like it can only be imagined. Nonetheless, the five piece ensemble achieved exactly that. The passage was so tightly woven with each instrument’s part working to intertwine with the rest that it left the jaw hanging.What came from this group were thoughtfully written, wonderfully crafted and brilliantly arranged songs! Deresti is a musical poet.The CD they were celebrating the release of, ‘Frank Deresti and the Lake Effect Hi’s and Lo’s’, is a beautifully produced recreation of what they offer on stage. To put it simply, this group gets it done, in the studio and in front of an audience.

Frank Deresti and the Lake Effect are a fine tuned, well-balanced group of musicians who continually delight fans with their entertaining and engaging shows. Always a pleasure to work with and such a positive experience for everyone involved, Frank Deresti and the Lake Effect love to play music. They exude this both on the stage and off. Their original songs are lyrical and infectious, while their choice of covers is diverse and unique; they can swoon, they can jam and they totally rock!

The Lake Effect is a great name for a band, especially when that band mixes things up the way Frank Deresti and his sidemen do. A little blues, a little folk, some jazz and a rockin’ dollop of rootsiness all pile on for a fun sound that’s great in the studio but more fun live.
