No Alternative Band
No Alternative, your favorite 90s rock tribute band, will bring you back to the best part of the 90s - the rock. Based in New York City, five like-minded individuals all agreed that this band is necessary. We invite you to grab your favorite flannel shirt and Doc Martens and come rock out with us.
Christian Alcantara has been the frontman for several bands including the Rage Against the Machine tribute - The Battle of Los Angeles. Being able to get lifted singing Sublime's "Santeria" to grunge-ing out to Nirvana's "Lithium" is a natural transition for this Peruvian-born rocker.
Marissa Arciola is a classically trained bassist but brings the funk for real on tracks like Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Suck My Kiss" and her vocal skills take on an angelic tone on The Cranberries' "Zombie". She will surely bring all the boys to the yard.
Alex Puro is a masterful guitarist that can shred like some kind of monster on Metallica's "Enter Sandman". He'll also take your favorite hip-hop jam like House of Pain's "Jump Around" and arrange it oh-so-rockingly. You may also find him blowing a trumpet or banging on a keyboard: there is no stop to his 90s rock.
Mark Ellison was the winner of a Rivers Cuomo look-a-like concert and the similarities do not end there. He can play the guitar like he is actually Rivers on Weezer's "Say It Ain't So" too! People line up to hear his guitar when sets end with Oasis' "Don't Look Back in Anger". Mark is a consummate professional.
Zack Appleton is also the drummer for the boys in blue. His style will arrest anyone ready to bear witness.
There is No Alternative. Already having brought our 90s style to B.B. King's Club, Mercury Lounge and DROM in NYC, they're ready for even more rock. Come see us live and we'll transport you back to a time when MTV was still playing music videos and slap bracelets were still legal. See you at the next show.
