When Rock and roll was a religion, four young man gathered to commune and dream. It was a dream, that like so many in the San Francisco Bay Area, began in a Garage. Robert Berry and Gene Perrault, in 1975, got together in Berry’s garage and began what was to become an eight year reverie. They created, with the addition of Roger Bonasera and Paul Keller, a new and distinct sound, a sound whose trademark would be a hard-driving, high-energy beat. Their rhythms were powerful, yet smooth, their vocals textured and tight. This was the nucleus of the dream that became Hush, one the most exciting bands to appear in the late seventies.
