"Here come the big cards"
Well here it is...our newest song, "Extraordinary Ones"
A tribute to Breezy and the Rockaways
here's the short story....
In the days following Hurricane Sandy, Anthony Stellato (“Stells”), a lifelong Breezy Pointer put pen to paper and wrote the following song “Extraordinary Ones”. More than a tribute, this song captures the passion and determination of a community battered but not broken. Seeing the destruction of his family’s summer home and the displacement of so many friends and neighbors, his song touches on the devastation of the moment and hope for the future. He was inspired by the many news reports that referred to a community of “ordinary people”. Stells was sure of one thing….the people of Breezy Point are anything but ordinary. Within weeks he had the band in the Sweetsounds Studio to capture this song and as you will hear, the guys brought their “A” game. The Hell or High Water band has been a mainstay on the NYC music scene for decades, and three of their members hail from Breezy. Having played dozens of gigs over the years in the bars of Breezy plus numerous parties and benefits there, the Hell or High Water Band is proud to play a part in this song and this rebirth of this wonderful community.

The Hell or High Water Band has had many incarnations over the last 23 years. It has been fun-fun-fun and daddy ain't takin' the T-Bird away!
A mainstay on the NYC music scene for decades, this eclectic, electric bar band has created a never ending traveling musical circus by sticking with a tried and true recipe.
Great music and a great time!
Their motto is, “We’re having as much fun as you are”!
The ever-changing set lists are super charged with the energy of seven guys who clearly love what they do…and howthey do it
Here’s how they cook the gumbo: Take the power of three guitars, add some crackling keyboards, spice it up with some tasty mandolin and stir not so gently with some house rockin’ bass lines.
Mix all that up with some locomotive drumming and a blues harp that can make a grown man cry. Top it all off with delicious vocals and harmonies. Add a packed house, light the stove and stand back!
Be prepared for a generous helping of classic rock and roll with a swamp water chaser.
With a cool mix of originals and interpretations of their musical heroes, you can expect to be singing along by the first set.
Trying to describe Hell or High Water's style is like eating soup with a fork. You've got to see it live baby! The closest anyone has gotten to it is......
...."It's like a night of bar hopping with John Lennon, Jerry Garcia and Keith Richards, with Bobby Dylan driving the limo."--overheard at a gig-1994
They love the music, they love the gigs, they love the crowd and it shows!
Get on the bus, sit back and enjoy the ride!
