Today’s Band of the Day goes to a 18th & Addison from Toms River, NJ. What began as an acoustic duo featuring Tom Kunzman who  was formerly in the band A Criminal Risk and DiBenedetto was one of MTV’s first recording artist with her band Just Kait (she is also the guitarist in the band What’s Eating Gilbert, the side project of Chad Gibert of New Found Glory) has since developed into a full live band. Together these two have come together and created their alternative rock sound cultivated from their influences of melodic rock, pop, punk and much more. They are capturing and bring back the honesty in music which is something so many bands strive for.  Kait explains,

 “The goal for us has always been to push this music in a direction that neither one of us had ever attempted”. Since we’re both from two totally opposite ends of the musical spectrum, especially in our town’s music scene, that has come pretty easily to us. We now play live with a full band and the songs have all taken on a new life. We love what we do, and we write from the heart first and foremost which really helps us put out music that we’re extremely proud of and anxious to release for others to hear.”
