misfire: Home


Welcome to the website of the newest 37-year-old rock band you have ever heard of! Originally formed in 1976, by the late 1970's this Brooklyn-based power foursome had achieved a great deal of success in the New York-area club scene. However, creative differences, legal issues, and other factors led to the band's demise in 1979, each member then traveling a different musical path. Although occasionally through the years these paths would, in fact, cross, Misfire, at that point, was no-more.  This, of course, to the dismay of the band's ever-loyal fan base.

The great news here is that the boys are back!! The four founding members, Richie Primavera (vocals), Peter Prinzivalli (guitar, vocals), Frank Verrico (bass, keyboards, vocals), and Tom Saluzzi (drums, percussion), have re-formed and are better than ever! Their catalog now includes new versions of their old favorites, plus new material as well, all written in the classic rock style with a contemporary twist.

Whether you are new to Misfire, or are one of its old fans, anyone who loves that "Classic Rock" sound is sure to love these guys!!
