Brooklyn-based rock. These six Connecticut natives are known for their raucous live show, dazzling horn harmonies, and the crunching baritone of lead-singer, John-Michael Parker. Since their inception in 2003, the band has played hundreds of shows across the East coast, sharing stages with acts such as Deerhoof, The Decemberists, Third Eye Blind, Girl Talk, and Does it Offend You, Yeah.
"It didn't take long to see that Great Caesar definitely puts out a vibe. During the performance, they were able to transform the Space from a casual Connecticut venue to a jazzy New York night club. With the help of a brilliant brass section complimented by the full bodied vocals of singer John-Michael Parker, Great Caesar produces vibrant and catchy melodies." -CTindie.com
"..buried in lush keyboards and ska horns, a charming vulnerability shines through in the thoughtful lyrics of 'Everyone is a VIP to Someone' and other school-nerd-friendly anthems." -The Hartford Advocate
"...a dazzling, energetic tour-de-force of virtuosic horns, catchy ska-beats, and lead singer John-Michael's shredding baritone." -yalemusicscene.org
"Keep an ear out for Great Caesar, a band with a modern sound that confirms the fact that our generation indeed has talent." -The Quad News
Nemes is an unquestionably unique 5 piece rock/folk band from Worcester, Massachusetts. Led by duel frontmen Dave Anthony (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Knowles (Violin/Vocals), the band brings what Worcester Magazine calls “a nuclear power plant's worth of energy” to any venue they enter. Energy isn't the only thing Nemes is focused on though. The band's songwriting, involving memorable lyrics and catchy hooks, will always be at the forefront, followed by a wide array of top-notch musicianship.
Since being named one of Alternative Press' top 5 unsigned bands in 2010, Nemes has embarked on two tours of the Eastern US, continued building a local fanbase, and most recently released a full length album. The album is entitled “Don't Flush Me” and showcases the many sides that Nemes has to offer. On the disc, the band seamlessly transitions from arena-sized rock songs to violin-plucking tunes with just as much emotional intensity.
The bottom line (literally), is that Nemes is motivated, capable, and ready to take on any audience put in front of them.
