Special Powers:

This nimble giant-on-the-mic, quick to incite crowds of all provenance and proportion with his ridiculous repertoire of brain-stinging metaphors, soul-rousing rhymes and lightning litanies of truth, is in the habit of leaving crowds reeling from the feeling of being born again for a reason. His freestyles are legendary; his ability to adapt to any tempo or track, unmatched; his integrity, undisputed. Spitting flows of inconceivable lightness in his natural state of anything but obvious, BluRum’s rhymes are the verbal version of absinthe. One shot to noddingham, two to neversurrenderland, three to be forever moved.

I Am The Third

Alec Stephens III is what a cross between Bob Marley, Cat Stevens, and Marvin Gaye might sound like. Brooklyn Alternative Rock with a throwback to Motown, backwoods soul, roots and jazz. He would describe his genre as "Dream Rock", music to vibe to while pursuing your dreams. His self titled debut EP, "I AM THE THIRD," is set for release in 2011.

Gone Quite Mad

Gone Quite Mad is a heavy-hitting, Brooklyn-based gypsy blues rock & roll quartet. They marry towering lead vocals, enthralling rhythm, flourishing harmony and rapturing guitar work with a tumbling groove that is all but impossible to ignore.

With a core that formed in Virginia, GQM have relocated to NYC and have been performing at notable venues such as Joe’s Pub, Public Assembly, The Studio @ Webster Hall, Piano’s and The Bitter End. In 2013, they released their self-titled debut LP “Gone Quite Mad,” written and produced by the band and engineered by Ted Young (The Hold Steady, Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, The Rolling Stones).

Gone Quite Mad is:
Christopher R. Gesualdi (lead vocals, lyrics)
Nicholas A. Pascarella (guitars, supporting vocals)
"Renegade Willis" Mr. Joe Kruse (bass, upright bass)
Caleb "All-Time" Spaulding (drums)
