Winter of 2000 brought about the dramatic entrance of Cincinnati Rock band Gerald's Rainbow (GR), a name conjured from an obscure dream frontman Tennis Mounts had as a teenager. The core members lead by Tennis Mounts were brought together in their high school years with a common interest in creating the signature style GR is now. Jason Coulter (drums), and Nick Franceschina (bass, and back-up vocals) rounded out the sound, bringing both a personal and musical dynamic rarely found in bands today. Described as commercially accessible and radio friendly, GR managed to court the interest of of a selected group of industry people. This interest qui ckly formed into a group effort, resulting in an incredibly strong, well-produced set of songs for their Calling You (2005) release featuring new member Jesse Waits on guitars.
