|About the Band|
This two man band achieves full-band sound by playing multiple instruments. Dennis contributes with lead guitar, bass, drums, piano, organ, cello, violin and vocals. Doug contributes rhythm guitar, percussion, vocals. Both artists share lead vocals during live performances.
Two Meteors Band was formed by two close friends who had grown up in elementary and high school together.
Dennis Mancino and Doug Smith met while in fourth grade at Visitation Catholic Elementary School in Westchester, California. Instantly they became good friends, such good friends that they had to be separated in the classroom for talking too much during lessons. And by the time they were in fifth grade they were earning “F” grades in conduct.
While in their sixth grade class both became interested in music following the first Beatles’ performance on the Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964.
In the next two years Dennis and Doug formed a band and played at various school and family functions.
They continued to play music together for a while in high school, however, as with most who graduate, they went off their separate ways pursuing their careers, periodically performing separately at various venues.
They visited each other a few times over the next couple decades. However, while attending their fortieth high school reunion, Dennis and Doug began sharing their recorded music with each other and in 2012 began playing music together again as Two Meteors Band.
