The Defibrillators

Hailed as the New York Region's favorite Baby Boomer Band, The Defibrillators play blues rock with a sense of humor.

Hailed as the New York Region's favorite Baby Boomer Band, The Defibrillators play blues rock with a sense of humor. The Defibrillators are Long Island Songwriters and Musicians: Sonny Meadows, Sonny Speed, Bob "Pops" Westcott, Bobby "Buddy Boy" Cattrano, Robert "Lang Lang" Langley, and Dr. Max Foreman. They all met at the Golden Requiem Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in 2001. Having tired of shuffleboard and bingo, they began wailing, singing, pounding on tables, banging pots and pans as Sonny Speed chimed in on the Day Room piano. Soon the whole room was up dancing to their rockin' sounds. Several residents became so excited that Dr. Max Foreman had to wheel in the portable defibrillator to revive them so they could get back up dancing again -- and in that instant the name of the band was created. Thanks to the efforts of family members, pawn shops, and the social work staff, the boys were able to acquire several guitars, amplifiers, and a full drum kit.
