More about Crystal Ship:
In the early 80s, there was a band that dominated the club scene like no other. In the heyday of the Jersey circuit, their record of prominence over all the other bands on the scene was unchallenged. The band was called Crystal Ship, and their show, called “Renaissance Of The Doors”, packed clubs and theaters up and down the East Coast.
The band had their beginnings in the late 70s, before tribute bands even existed with singer Joe Tag. They succeeded at capturing that spirit beyond all expectations. When they sold out their first self-promoted shows, agents and clubs soon came running. Six months to the day of that first show, Crystal Ship sold out the Capitol Theater in Passaic, the first of three times the band would accomplish that feat.
Soon the band was breaking attendance records at all the biggest clubs on the East Coast, as well as performing regularly at concert venues such as the Capital Theater, the Tower Theater in Philadelphia, and the Paradise Theater in Boston. They also hit the East Coast amusement park circuit, with regular sold out appearances at the Great Adventure arena, usually on July 3rd, the anniversary of Jim Morrison’s death. There were many live broadcasts of shows over stations such as WPLJ in New York and WYSP in Philadelphia.
Adding to the aura that Crystal Ship created was a concert size light show and sound system. The group utilized the services of road crews that worked on major tours, with bands such as Aerosmith and Meat Loaf. They even sometimes performed with the famed Joshua Light Show, which toured with the original Doors. The many reviews of the shows marveled at not only the overall scene the band created, but at the tightness and high level of musicianship exhibited by the members, often comparing them favorably to major touring acts, and even the Doors themselves.
Now Crystal Ship is back in 2023! Veteran Doors tribute singer Eddie Racci will be fronting Crystal Ship. Eddie has played all over North America and internationally as well having played with former Doors guitarist Robby Kreiger and his band.
Joining the band will be keyboardist and multi- instrumentalist James Graff. He has toured all over the world performing the Doors music and played with many Grammy award winners including Steve Vai, Steve Morse, Clarence Clemons and The Classics IV.
On drums playing his mod orange Ludwig drums, like John Densmore, will be Roy Walters, a lifelong fan of The Doors who has played with over a dozen Hall of Fame Classic Rockers (Lavern Baker, Bo Diddley, Ronnie Spector, Percy Sledge, etc.), several renowned jazz and symphonic artists, and many independent acts.
On guitar playing his authentic Cherry SG that Robby Kreiger played, will be Eric Senderoff, a long time pioneer of the tribute (World touring Rolling Stones and Tina Turner Tributes) and blues scene.
On bass will be Steve Cialino, a veteran of the Tri State Rock scene and hard rock session player for over three decades.
The Mystery, The Spirit and The Magic of a Doors concert now comes alive again. The Ceremony is ready to begin!
