It’s a new day for 40 Below Zero, things have changed. Most notably we added a singer, Sophie West. She arrives with a wide range of capabilities which is helping the band reformulate its direction. It’s more….. in your face Rock. It’s more…… getup and dance to the music. It’s more……. I can’t believe they do that with just 3 instruments. It’s more…….wow, that was fun. We now play songs by Billy Idol, Joan Jet, the Foo Fighters, The Talking Heads, The Goo Goo Dolls and even the Stones. You’ll recognize a lot of what we do and hope that you will appreciate our originals.
