Fusing their backgrounds in music technology, classical, and jazz music, Mint Trip came together over a mutual interest in pushing the boundaries of pop music. The result is a unique combination of catchy rhythms, vibrant textures, and captivating melodies.
YYNOT was the coming together of award winning-Grammy ballot
nominated Guitarist/Songwriter/Producer Billy Alexander (John
Waite, FEEL, Ron Blair-Tom Petty) and Florida based virtuoso bassist
Tim Starace. After seeing Bassist Tim Starace post videos of his mind-
blowing and accurate Rush bass covers, Alexander approached Starace
about forming an online collaboration by creating videos of Rush
classics. The videos have grown in popularity and have gained hundreds
of thousands of views. Their original videos gaining over 2million views
overall on facebook and YouTube. They’ve played to standing room only
shows at The Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood, Gaslamp in Long Beach
Alexander recruited then 19 year old Rocky Kuner after seeing her
perform a jaw-dropping version of Deep Purple’s “Highway Star” while
she was still in highschool!
Drummer Joel Stevenett came into the fold when a member of a Rush
online group suggested he and the band work together. After seeing the world -class drummer perform a Rush drum medley on YouTube it was obvious this was a perfect match!
‘YYNOT’ pride themselves on perfectly accurate representations of the Rush catalog as well as a penchant for releasing “Rush-esque” original material that stands up against some of the strongest progressive/hard rock music out there.Their originals have already garnered national airplay as well as in Canada. Their last show in March 18th at the EauGallie Civic Center in Melbourne Fla. was sold out!
YYNOT’s live shows are designed to take the fans on a journey back in time as well as deliver a fresh new spark and bring back the power and majesty of hard rock that the fans have an undeniable hunger for.
