Inevitably we sit around the table and reminisce. Laughter erupts while talking about our collective memories. We've known each other for so many years, practically our whole lives. We share our feelings and private thoughts with a vulnerability that comes naturally. It's an abundance of trust, that's what true friendship is all about. It's our reality. But has that changed? Has the meaning of friendship been altered by our new virtual social order? Friends For Life asks these questions and attempts to gain insight into what friendship really means. Through interviews with individuals young and old, we search for answers; we search for common ground.
The Atomik Age Project originated in Brooklyn, New York, and has been making music since the 1960's. All songs are written and produced by band member and lead guitarist Philip Curcuru. The other band members and contributors are Jimmy Ceribello, lead vocals; Lou Di Natale, keyboards; Roger Fiorentino, bass; Stu Seiderman, sax; Christina Dempsey, vocals; Bob Aniano, guitar; Eddie Valvo, keyboards; and the late, Joe Curcuru, drums, until his passing in 2009.
As of 2017, The Atomik Age Project has been honored with both national and international Laurels for their films and songs, including nine Best Soundtrack/Original Song awards, and seven nominations for Best Music Score/Soundtrack and film.
Accompanied by two new songs written by award-winning composer and producer, Philip Curcuru and performed by The Atomik Age Project, Friends For Life reminds us how integral to happiness those visceral feelings really are.
