Our latest Extraordinary Talent of the Week is a rock band influenced by jazz and fusion music. Fresh off winning a major contest, the high school juniors that make up the band ‘Posted’ are getting ready to record their first album.
You might be surprised to hear the music of The Who on the stage at Marcellus High school, but the members of Posted were raised on classic rock.
The started the band in middle school so they could enter the talent show.
Nate Murphy is the vocalist, Riley Burns plays bass, Sam Hayduke and Josh Ski are on drums and Dan Wrona is on guitar. Wrona also writes most of their songs.
Earlier this year, the band competed against the best high school bands in the area at JCC’s Battle of the Bands. First prize was cash and studio recording time.
The Battle of the Bands has put Posted on the local music map— getting on the cover of a magazine and getting the ability to record their album this summer.
