PEELANDER-Z, the Japanese Action Comic Punk Band based in NYC, was originally formed in 1998 by Peelander-Yellow, Peelander-Red, and Peelander-Blue, after meeting in New York City (although they'll tell you they're all from the Z area on the planet Peelander). Peelander-Green was welcomed in July 2008 after Blue left the band.
Peelander–Z has appeared at major music festivals including Bonnaroo and the Vans Warped Tour and has also been featured on TV programs such as VH1's "Best Week Ever" and Comedy Central's "Upright Citizens Brigade" among others. The band has also been covered by SPIN, Rolling Stone, Village Voice, NPR and The Onion among many others.
At its live shows, Peelander–Z guarantees intense audience participation and a chance to exercise. You'll see the band in colorful costumes reminiscent of Japanese anime, though they describe their outfits as their skin. You'll also see The Red Squid, human bowling and all around insanity. A Peelander–Z performance is a rare occasion for the entire family to rock out and have a great time.
The Phonies, a 7-piece rock/fusion outfit who hail from Philadelphia, are building a reputation as a fierce live energy band with stunning musicianship. Epic horn lines, biting guitar, highly danceable drums, and mind-blowing time changes are the lay of the land, and there's never a dull moment between them. Bandleader Sean Conlon's songs are at once thought-provoking and vigorous, with a veneer of classic cool that leaves the air electrified. When performing live, it's easy to see the band get captured in the moment, and it's difficult not to join along. They're all about having fun and enticing even the most stoic concertgoers to shake a little booty.
