Alacrity; noun. The beginning of fast movement. It's with this very same movement that Alacrity has begun pushing its way into the local music scene. As a powerful, melodic rock band, Alacrity proves that original music is alive and well in New England. Combining elements of modern rock and pop, the New Hampshire-based four-piece rock act draws influence from bands like Incubus and has a melodic music style that is reminiscent of Fuel and Vertical Horizon. Their lyrics speak of life experiences, lessons learned, and most of all, the hope and bright optimism of the youthful soul.
Since their initial meeting in 2002, the group hit it off both personally and musically. The foundation of the band began as a project between Roger Theriault (vocals, guitar) and Keith Blanchet (bass). The scope of the project became realized when Roger met Rob Micallef (drums) at college. Shortly thereafter, Keith and Roger answered an ad from guitarist Brandon Wolfe and the group was complete. Brandon's lush chords and melodic soloing were perfect for Keith's blood-giving bass lines and Roger's tenor singing. Throw in Rob's tight, fusion-esque drumming, and the project quickly became a band. The four guys that were once strangers now share a strong bond and friendship. Their sly sense of humor and energetic performances have earned them a strong following with crossover in the hard rock, pop, and acoustic music scenes.
