Daniel Marotta, attorney at the firm Gabor & Marotta, joins Michael and Sarah to discuss his band The Resistance, a popular cover band on Staten Island. Marotta is an original member and lead guitarist talks about how the band came together and what they’re doing to help local music venues and restaurants impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Marotta, who practices in the areas of probate, wills, trusts, estate planning, franchises, trademark licensing, commercial leasing, condominium conversions, and real estate, shares how the band has continued to ‘jam’ during the COVID shutdown that has forced many music venues and bars across the state to close. He also talks about somehow the band settled on their name, what type of music they choose to play and how they put personal touches on classic songs from the late 1960s and 1970s.
He was kind enough to share a performance of the band covering the song ‘From the Beginning,’ a classic from English rock band ELP (11:57).
