Double Entendre is one of the newest, most energetic rock quintets to hit Central Pennsylvania. Hailing from Lebanon Valley College, the band was originally formed between three roommates who shared a similar passion for music in late 2006. With JT Fredlund as lead guitarist, Brian Dempsey on vocals and percussion, and Carmen Forte on bass, Double Entendre hit the ground running as an eclectic cover band playing various campus functions and events. Looking to expand on their original material, the trio recruited lead singer Phillip Freeman and rhythm guitarist Brad O’Connell in late 2007. After a few practices and a couple of late jam sessions, it was clear that Double Entendre was coming into its own as a powerhouse act!
Within less than a year, the band’s high-octane style and originality landed them over twenty shows at major venues including: The Chameleon Club (Lancaster, PA), The Crocodile Rock Café (Allentown, PA), Doc Watson's Pub (Philadelphia, PA), The Laserdome (Manheim, PA), Club 19 (York, PA), and Media Coffee House (Media, PA).. Within the same timeframe, the band has won several competitions and has had the privilege of sharing the stage with Captain of Compliments, Letters For Lovers, and the acclaimed national rock bands, Mae, Just Surrender, Jet Lag Gemini, Motionless In White, and The Casualties. Not only does the band pride itself on its accomplishments over the past few months, but also on each member’s dedication to maintain good standing as an active student at Lebanon Valley College. Double Entendre owes these achievements to its devoted fans and support of loved ones, as they pursue their education while maintaining a deep passion for writing, touring, and performing.
Currently, the band is in the process of finishing their seven song demo with Rock Hollow Records President and Head Engineer Tucker Carr. This will include their pulsating anthems “In the Darkness” and “State of Nothingness” and the crowd pleasing single “Read Between the Lines” along with the new and provocative epochs “Crimson Skies” and “Vapid Love”, while still showing a softer side with their ballad “Sirens.” The band hopes to release the album by the summer of 2009.
The band is also looking forward to up and coming shows and encourages everyone to drop by and say hello here on their Myspace page.
The band shares its love and appreciates your support.
