Biografia

The Ocean Blue began in the late 1980’s in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Teenage friends David Schelzel, Steve Lau, and Bobby Mittan came together for the love of new wave and college radio of the day that simmered beneath the mainstream of popular music. The boys practiced in each other’s basements, worked on their own tunes, and made plans. As high school graduation neared, Steve sent some of the band’s demo tapes off to local management companies, including the office of one busyman, Peter Freedman, a recent NYC transplant from Pennsylvania. He took the bands calls, promised them glory, and told them they had to play out.

Shortly thereafter, Rob Minnig joined the group as drummer and, most conveniently, recording engineer. The band spent the rest of the year working on new demos in Rob’s studio and playing out for the first time in clubs and colleges in Pennsylvania and surrounding states. High points: opening for Wang Chung at the Metron; playing Hershey Park and Hershey High Prom; gigs at the all-girls Hood College and the all-boys Georgetown Prep; the Indigo Girls as a support band. Low points: purchasing a Sears service van that ran on oil; collapsing ironing boards, gracing the cover of Pennsylvania Musician.

1988 was a very good year. The band landed a nice publishing deal with EMI/SBK Publishing who, along with Peter Freedman and friends, began shopping the group’s new demos to the major record labels. Titles: “Between Something and Nothing”, “The Office of A Busy Man”, “The Circus Animals”, “Drifting, Falling”, “Myron”.
