Ten Ton Mojo
New to the NYC rock scene, Ten Ton Mojo's bluesy sound is hard edged, real, and soulful. Alabama born vocalist Ernie Papp (SlackJaw and Mother's Brew), NYC native Scott Lano (Blitzspeer and SlackJaw) and Gabe Mera (Midnight Fistfight) provide telling, powerful lyrics and melodies while solid rhythm section Fernando Rosario(Smashed Gladys, Michael Monroe, Cycle Sluts From Hell) and Paul Kane keep the grooves heavy. Think heavy blues meets the glory of Rock n Roll... with a southern drawl.
Murderfist is the premier light-flavored, full-bodied, underground comedy group for the upper crust comedy bigwigs of New York City. Murderfist has showcased it's biscuits at Caroline's on Broadway, The Laugh Factory, The PIT, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and featured at the FringeNYC 2008 with "All Hail The Great Serpent!" Most recently they were awarded the 2009 ECNY award for Best Sketch Comedy Group and appeared as an official selection of SketchFest NYC 2010.
Honor Among Thieves
Pirate Ship is back!
Skulk the Hulking
Skulk, The Hulking, is a one man band based out of Queens, NY. His music is an aggressive mix of Punk Rock, Hip-Hop, and Electronica that takes a satirical look at the sociopolitical problems we face day in and day out. In other words: Sometimes our lack of morals makes Skulk angry… sometimes he screams about it.
From Chicago originally, Skulk moved to NYC in 2007 to see what the big city had to say about his morals. He has taken in all different kinds of music and tried to express his overbearing heart in a way that satisfies all of his influences. His goal is to work ever hard to wise up a dead culture while being entertaining in the world he wishes to expose for what it truly is.
Whether you like him or love him, eventually you will hate him. In the end it's all laughable.
Thornes is a local NYC rock act in the greatest city in the world. Thornes has been together since October 2010. And in that short time they have played many of the best venues in and around the city!
Thornes' line-up includes Abel Garcia on Lead guitar and backing vocals and Antoinette Michael Thornes Lead Vocals, rhythm guitar and piano. And our newest addition mighty fingered Steve Steele on Bass!
Although, Antoinette started this rock project with her first album "Issues" (on iTunes) The new album (Untitled) will be a collaboration of these great performers and musicians. Look for their new song releases and videos coming in 2013!!!
With a powerful voice, heavy rock guitars, solid song writing and great stage shows, Thornes makes for a beautiful marriage of the old and the new with the sounds of primal rock'n'roll at its best!!
Purple Pam & The Flesheaters
Power ROCK/METAL/BLUES of timeless music. We are 4 musicians from NYC and our influences vary which creates our sound. PURE FUCKING ROCK n ROLL!
Three brothers bonded in blood. Same Dad different moms. Reunited by the desert.
The Moto Wrays
Typhoid Rosie is composed of an Ivy League graduate and comedian turned singer-song writer (Rosie Rebel), with Patrick Meyer on guitar, Dean Wartell on bass and Phil Wartell on drums. Typhoid Rosie has formed a unique sound that cannot be defined in a single genre. Their sound has been compared to: Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, Patti Smith, Garbage, Hole, ACDC, early 70's punk, and bluesy truth.
Rosie Rebel spent ten years of her life honing her skills as a comedian. After working a series of soul-sucking jobs to support her clown dreams, she returned to college to finish her bachelor's degree. Rosie began to understand the burdens of knowledge, discovering the worst of mankind's qualities being played out in a viscous cycle. Until now, it always satisfied her to make people laugh. After taking a mandatory music class at Columbia University, she began playing the ukulele and her great grandmother's organ. Music provided her with an outlet to discuss serious issues. A student who barely passed high school, Rosie graduated with high honors from Columbia University. She soon realized that she was evolving into more than a comedian. Her musical creativity was illuminated and songs began to pour out of her. At first, she was very shy about playing music and singing in front of others, having spent most of her time with her professional musician friends. So she compiled songs and lyrics, waiting for the right moment to introduce them. Rosie's husband described her early music as, "a raping of all of his senses". The first boost of confidence came from a visit from the virtuoso, Victor Ruggiero who encouraged Rosie to keep writing and playing music. There was only one thing left to do, start a band.
The original members of Typhoid Rosie were Matt Burdi, Jack Wright, Jonathan Watchtel (El Jay) and Rosie Rebel. Together they rehearsed for a month and played one show at the Bowery Poetry Club. Phil joined the band after Matt Burdi and Jack Wright resigned to put all of their energy into their band, The Forthrights. Phil, Rosie's best critic saw progress in Rosie's development and agreed to join Typhoid Rosie. Since then, Phil has been the most dedicated drummer and backbone of structure that the band needed. Typhoid Rosie briefly welcomed guitar player, Juan Cardenas. They played another show at the Bowery Poetry Club. Then Juan left New York to move to Los Angeles to pursue his first love, directing porn in Hollywood. It was at this time, Juan was followed out by El Jay on account of being, “swamped in pussy.”
Typhoid Rosie regained momentum after Patrick Meyer was introduced to Rosie and Phil by their mutual friend and estranged family member Uncle Sketchy. Patrick and his trusty main rig added that fiery dose of ballsy guitar playing, a time-honored tradition dating back to ZZ Top and the Dead Boys. Patrick's bluesy riffs and jangly tone clearly demonstrate why many across NYC and the land itself refer to him as The Chocolate Milk Man. Patrick knew that the band needed a deviant bass player. Naturally, we sought a blood relative of the drummer- Dean was just the man for the job. He went straight to the source to drink from the teat of low thunder. The band wrote and rehearsed and arranged in Phil and Rosie's attic through the winter of 2012.
After Rosie's last rendezvous with comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and Patrick's recovery from a vicious raccoon attack in Brooklyn, Typhoid Rosie was ready to record their first album. The man who once called Rosie's music “a raping of all of his senses” produced and organized the making of Typhoid Rosie's first album. After jump starting their car, the four piled in with the main rig and were off to New Jersey to record with the notorious, Jimmy Sweet Sounds. Sweet Sounds not only had the appropriate indoor plumbing, but also the sonic vision to lay the tracks for the future of rock and roll.
The Music Album offers a wealth of musical and philosophical inspiration: From rollicking sea shanty ballads, Aztec literature, straight up rockers, Maury Povich, paternity tests, washed up strippers, secret pockets with dirty secrets, wasted lives, matadors, wolves, citadels, storms, the death of Chris Farley, and stax-inspired soul: “I dare you to stop at one.” The twelve songs run such a gamut that it's difficult to pinpoint an all-encompassing genre. With The Music Album pressed up and ready for consumption, Typhoid Rosie is a freight train of rock & roll. With an energetic, balls-to-the-wall stage show and genuine mastery of traditional American music, Typhoid Rosie is ready to bring it's twisted barrage of sound to the masses.
