They aren’t household names. . . . but they’ve shared the stage with lots of
them. You’ve definitely seen or heard one or more of these guys at some point,
either in concert, on TV, or on a CD or DVD. For over 25 years the members of
The Kings Of Classic Rock have played for many of the great legends in rock,
both in concert and in the studio.
They’ve toured and/or recorded with bands such as Iron Butterfly, The Animals,
Edgar Winter, Sheryl Crow, The Fixx, Tears For Fears, Paul Revere and The
Raiders, Vanilla Fudge, Genesis, Chuck Berry, Meatloaf, Percy Sledge, Lita Ford,
Peter Gabriel, Olivia Newton John, Spencer Davis, Gary Myrick and The Figures,
Loverboy, Buddy Miles, Manhattan Transfer, Thelma Houston, Jennifer Love Hewitt,
DeBarge, Sugarloaf, Bobby Kimball and Simon Phillips (Toto), The British Rock
Symphony, Brand X, Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Robbie Krieger (The Doors), Eddie
Van Halen, Steve Lukather (Toto), Brian Auger, Jonatha Brooke, Glenn Shorrock
(Little River Band), Dwight Twilley, Walter Trout, Eric Sardinas and more.
The Kings Of Classic Rock met while playing for Eric Burdon and The Animals, and
a strong musical bond was forged. After years of very successful worldwide
touring, the guys felt that somehow they had to stay together rather than go
their separate ways and end up playing as hired guns for other artists as they
had done for so many years.
The Kings Of Classic Rock was created to play the very best songs from each of
their former bands and create an irresistible set, as much fun to listen to as
it is for them to play, and make it appealing to anyone who is a fan of rock
music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
The diverse background of this band covers a lot of musical territory, and
therefore requires a very versatile singer. They found this voice in Nick
D’Virgilio. Nick is currently the lead singer for the critically acclaimed band
Spock’s Beard, where he also plays guitar and drums. Nick has also lent his
talents to artists such as Sheryl Crow, Tears For Fears, Genesis, Manhattan
Transfer, Peter Gabriel, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Debarge, Jonatha Brooke, Brand X,
Eric Burdon and many others. He is a clinician for Mapex Drums and Sonic
Reality, and has recorded two solo CD’s and a DVD.

MARTIN GERSCHWITZ -
Playing keyboards we have our high performance German import, Martin Gerschwitz.
A classically trained pianist and violinist, Martin also had a successful career
in Germany playing in rock bands before heading across the Atlantic in the mid
80’s to pursue the American Dream. He quickly achieved his goal, winning high
profile positions with platinum recording artists Meatloaf, Lita Ford, Vanilla
Fudge, Percy Sledge, Spencer Davis, Loverboy, Eddie Van Halen, and blues great
Walter Trout before joining The Animals in 1999. Currently, Martin is touring as
keyboard player and lead singer with the group that defined the psychedelic era,
Iron Butterfly. He also leads his own solo project that records and tours, with
3 studio CD’s and a DVD to his credit.
BERNARD PERSHEY -
The foundation of the band is Bernard Pershey on drums. Hailing from the
Midwest, Bernie found early success with Olivia Newton John’s band at the height
of her career. Later Bernie moved to Chicago where he perfected his highly
energized and impeccable technique in music as varied as jazz fusion to blues,
hard rock to Salsa. Later, those wide-ranging musical skills would come in handy
on countless recording sessions as well as playing on tour with Chuck Berry,
Edgar Winter, Dwight Twilley, blues great Walter Trout, Eric Sardinas and others
before being recruited into The Animals in 2001.
In addition to lots of touring, you’ve seen and heard them with their previous
