About Merge Band
Merge was formed by three former members of Opie’s Dream (1998 Detroit Music Award nominee) and Mid-Life Crisis: Pete Costantino (bass/vocals), Rick Hren (drums/vocals), and Bruce Karry (keyboards/harmonica/vocals). Justin Sobczynski (lead guitar) and Lisa Porter (Lead vocals) round out this dynamic group of musicians. These Motor City music veterans have performed with the likes of Stanley Clark, Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), Steve King (Eminem), and Jeff Berlin (Yes, Van Halen, Pat Metheny) just to name a few. The joy they feel while performing spills over to their audience. They have fun and so have the thousands of people they’ve performed for at countless fairs, festivals and other venues. The Merge playlist features hits from the 1950’s to today. They have a wealth of experience to draw on and it shows ! So get your motor runnin’, head out on the highway and MERGE!!! Merge rocks Metro Detroit with a repertoire that features hits from the 50’s through today and touches upon everything from Alternative/Modern Rock to Blues, Pop, Classic Rock, Motown and Country.
