The Blue Line, a group of four guys from the D.C. area, knows no boundaries when it comes to making rock music. They grab influences from every popular rock generation and genre and throw it into their songs, creating their own new, catchy, electric rock style. The lyrics tell stories and are often poetic, the solos are intricate and can be played at 'love song' or metal speed, and the rhythm always carries a pure rock beat. 'When Washingtonians hear the words 'the blue line,' they should no longer think of the Metrorail. Instead, they should picture Ross Jacobson, Ben Payes, Nick Scialli and Dave Chaletzky - the four members of The Blue Line, an up-and-coming local band that's been charming fans with their rocking rhythms, catchy lyrics and charismatic style.' - The American University Eagle 'The Blue Line is a DC phenom, four rockers who met out of college and took their passion for music out of the garage and into the nightlife in Adams Morgan and U Street combining musical talents, rocking out with their own tunes to a driving, insistent beat that is at once passionate and musically adroit. The sleek tones and satiny vocals of lead singer and rhythm guitar Ben Payes synchronize with lead guitarist Ross Jacobson's intensely saturated riffs sending out a strong emotional energy. Nick Scialli on bass and Dave Chaletzky's percussion demonstrate strong command of their respective instruments to stand out in harmonic and sometimes dissonant counterpoint to create the band's unique sound. Aranoyas, Fantasy Girl and Underwater Dreams are first out of the box on the new CD. The band - sounding a high octane blend with mellow notes - creates a magical energy all it's own.' - Washington Off-Beats Arts Blog.
