The trance group Cascada was at one point called Cascade, and they did create a single called “Miracle”, although they created this single under the name Cascada.
In the 1970s a Finnish pop band used the name Cascade. The band was founded by Ami Aspelund, Aimo Jaara, Marjo-Riitta Kervinen and Kari Kuusamo. Tomma Knief and Roope Koistinen joined the band right after it was founded. They were later replaced by Pekka Leminen and Heikki Lyttinen. After less than ten years the band broke down because of the amount of other projects its members had.
There is also a band from the Chicago area that was formed in 2006. It consisted of members formerly in The Side Effects of Summer. This group is still together having been through various name changes. They are currently under the name Skyrite and are writing new music.
