"Class Action" Band is Headed to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

August 16, 2013

"Class Action," the in-house rock and roll band at Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin, will perform in the final round of the 13th Annual Fortune Battle of the Corporate Bands competition, to take place September 28th at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. After placing out of the competition at the New Jersey regional finals in June, the band received notice last week that it was selected as one of two "wild card" finalists to compete in the last leg of the contest against seven other bands for the title of "Best Corporate Band in North America."

"We are ecstatic about the opportunity to compete and perform at the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame," said shareholder Steve Ryan, one of the band's founding members. "This is definitely going to be an event to remember – and one to cross off the bucket list," he said.

Fortune Battle of the Corporate Bands is a partnership between Fortune magazine and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and the competition supports the educational mission of the Museum. The annual event provides amateur, company-sponsored bands with the opportunity to step out of the conference room and celebrate their passion for music.

Class Action was formed ten years ago when Ryan and attorneys Frank Wickersham, Brad Goewert and Bill Conkin discovered a shared affinity for playing rock and R&B/soul music. What started as a small blend of guitars, vocals, drums and a sax, has since developed into a full-fledged show band with guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, and a 4-piece horn section. In addition to the early members, Class Action instrumentalists and vocalists include Howard Dwoskin, Marty Coleman, James Gicking, Ed Galang, Chris Boyle, Jr., Mark Mattioli, Joseph L. Hoynoski, III, Adam Geer, Jodi O'Connor and Nicolai Schurko.
