A five-piece band from Florence, MA, Light of Day formed in September 2014. They play a refreshing take on the classic rock ‘n’ roll format. Their original compositions, ranging from emotional ballads to upbeat punk-rockers, tell you what it’s like to be a kid today. Light of Day placed second in the Tri-County Fair Battle of the Bands this past September. The band consists of four eigh
th graders, Tommy, Kamran, Jacob and Evan, and a fifth grader, Jamie; the youngest was seven months old when Cup and Top opened its doors!
