The band known around RIT in 1995 as Dickie Nyquist has been reborn as We Love 2 Rumble Band. Members Ryan Cahill 95 (biology), Matt Daniels 95, 99 (mechanical engineering), Ron DiFelice 94, 95 (chemistry) and Dylan James 98 (civil engineering technology) reunited to produce a CD titled Dickie Nyquist Explodes.
DiFelice spearheaded this project, and he and Daniels wrote the scratch tracks and the music developed from there. DiFelice (bass guitar and vocals) brings his funk roots and Daniels (guitar and vocals) his rock/pop background. Cahill (percussion) adds a rock/jazz influence and James (lead guitar) contributes blues sensibilities. Two non-RIT musicians round out the sound: Kyle Crosby (keyboard and piano) and Steve Daniels, Matts brother (saxophone and trumpet).
Included among the nine songs is one titled Brick City, described as a nostalgia-soaked anthem that related to the social scene at RIT during the mid 90s.
The band plans to return to RIT for a performance during Brick City Homecoming, Oct. 9-11.
