(1993 – present)
Mistle Thrush was formed in the Boston area in 1993 by Valerie Forgione (vocals, guitar, theremin), Scott Patalano (guitar), Todd Demma (drums), Ruben Layman (bass) and Brad Rigney (guitar). They named themselves after a bird that eats mistletoe berries, supposedly because of its combination of a sweet voice with a diet that would be poisonous to most animals.
