The Young Presidents

The Young Presidents

The Young Presidents is a rock band from New York City that blends classic rock & roll with a dash of 90′s alternative. With its fusion of a back-to-basics approach and a distinctly modern sound, The Young Presidents returns to the great “power trio” of rock: guitar, bass and drums.

With a core group consisting of bassist Mitch Kaneff, vocalist Djax, guitarists Asher Kurtz and Mike Haldeman, and drummer Derek Broomhead, the band is united inits passion for rock music and inspired by diverse bands from Cream to Train and from The Jimi Hendrix Experience to Nirvana.

The Young Presidents recently released their EP Break Away with 2 powerful tracks: “Ordinary” and “Break Away.” Their 3rd album, FIREHORSE, was released last year and is available in CD and digital, as well as a limited vinyl edition.

The band has worked with producers John Agnello (Sonic Youth) and Rob Fraboni (Rolling Stones, Levon Helm) and has performed its energetic brand of grungy, hard-edged, and indie-infused rock & roll in clubs across the country.

Whether performing at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City, The Study in Los Angeles, or The Stephen Talkhouse in the Hamptons, the Young Presidents bring something exceptional to its fan base – and they rock the house down while they’re at it!
