The Phosphenes were started in 1990 when David Lawitz and Jim Wiskerchen, his neighbor, started working together. A band was formed soon afterward that included David’s brother, Bernie Lawitz on Drums. This lineup has played together off and on since that time. The Phosphenes have recently added Bill Harrison on Bass. Bill also helps with backing vocals, which adds nice layering to the bands vocal heavy, catchy songs. The band prefers to play original material but also incorporates many great cover songs into sets. The band is currently tracking some songs for a new release. The band has a 14 song CD available for purchase.
