To everyone who wasn’t there you definitely missed out. To those who still don’t know who they are, well, we’ll be kind enough to give you the low down on these two performers!
That night, Against The Current opened the show to their fans’ delight! Against The Current is a pop/rock-based band from Poughkeepsie, New York. Band members include Chrissy Costanza (Lead vocals), Dan Gow (Vocals/Guitar), Jeremy Rompala (Guitar), Joe Simmons (Bass), and Will Ferri (Drums). The band officially joined Youtube on August 6, 2011 and is managed by Michael Ferri.
Currently, Against The Current has two original singles, entitled “Thinking” and Closer, Faster, and are both available on iTunes. Notable cover songs include “Good Time – Owl City ft. Carly Rae Jepsen,” “Not Over You – Gavin DeGraw,” and “Catch My Breath – Kelly Clarkson.” Additionally, Chrissy has done several collaborations with notable YouTube cover artists, such as Heart Attack with Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider, and Beauty and a Beat with Alex Goot and Kurt Schneider.
Goot has made several videos in collaboration with other artists such as We Are the In Crowd, Kurt Hugo Schneider, Megan Nicole, Sam Tsui and Against The Current.
Goot has released three volumes of Songs I Wish I Wrote with some of the versions of his channel on YouTube.
It was definitely a night to remember for both fans and the performers themselves! Hopefully a repeat happens soon!
