The Differents are an Acoustic Rock Cover Band. (Trisha Pallo, Joe Pallo, Jeff Carano. Paul Beretta) It begins and ends with Joe and Trisha Pallo. This is a chemistry that comes along once in a generation…..in fact Joe and Trisha have a musical synergy that is so effective it has even progressed through to their personal lives (a happily married couple for over 20 years).
Trisha is one of the most dynamic singers you will ever experience. From the second she begins a song, it is clear that she “owns it”. Trisha’s vast repertoire encompasses multiple styles and genre…yet there is no mistaking her own unique style no matter what the composition. Trisha can be as angelic as Adele at one moment, and in the next instant belt out a Janis Joplin tune with unmatched authenticity. Her range and versatility is incredible, but perhaps her most endearing quality is her uncanny ability to relate to her audience. Her passion for what she does is undisputed…and by the time her first set is finished, everyone watching and listening feels that Trisha is performing just for them.
Trisha’s inspired vocals, as compelling as they are on their own, become even more effective with Joe’s incomparable guitar playing. Using just the right amount of dynamics in his chord comping, Joe is able to compliment Trisha’s versatility and passion. One listen will demonstrate that a strong chemistry exists between these two. Joe can move effortlessly between sultry ballads by James Taylor and Keith Urban to pop favorites by Tom Petty and Talking Heads…. and he’ll even belt out a mean Johnny Cash if asked to!
But the power of Joe and Trish together is never more evident than when they alternate melodies on classic duets, or harmonize together with a strength and cohesiveness that can bring chills to the most seasoned listener. The charisma these performers have is immediately evident, and is the result of decades of making music together as one of the Hudson Valley’s most working duos.
