BANDS WE CURRENTLY WORK WITH
THE LIZA COLBY SOUND / New York
Part shaman, part seductress, Liza Colby was born to earn the Queen Of Rock N’ Roll mantle. Her music is for sinful Saturday nights, and redemptive Sunday mornings. It’s heartbreak music; it’s music of sexual liberation; it’s music for when it matters most. It’s The Liza Colby Sound. It’s the music we need in these times.
Imagine Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden meets James Brown at the Apollo. Picture Tina Turner prowling the stage like Iggy Pop with vocals that conjure Aretha Franklin and Humble Pie’s Steve Marriott. Hyperbolic? Nah, come to a show, and look out for The Liza Colby Sound’s EP, “DRAW”, to be preceded by the swaggering single “My World”.
THE SWEET THINGS / New York
The Sweet Things—Dave Tierney, lead vocals/rhythm guitar; Lorne Behrman, lead guitar, vocals; Sam Hariss, bass/vocals; and Darren Fried, drums/vocals—are a buzzed-about, young, dirty rock n’ roll band specializing in a potent blend of New York Dolls-style trash rock served up with country-fried Southern swagger and tight songcraft. On May 24th, the New York City-based band will release its highly anticipated debut album In Borrowed Shoes, In Borrowed Time via Wendigo Productions NYC/Spaghetty own Records which was produced by Matt Chiaravalle (Debbie Harry, Warren Zevon, Courtney Love) and recorded in NYC.
THE THREADS / New York
Born out of the frustration of the dying Rock & Roll scene in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The Threads are a band of rockers who long for the days of the Tompkins Square Riots, squatters on every corner instead of a Starbucks, and no fucking bike lanes. All veterans of other sleazy NYC rock outfits, the gentlemen came together to pursue one goal: to create a true and honest rock show.
Started in 2004 by Mick Brown, lead singer of the infamous Lower East Side Stitches, guitarist Roger Jaghoo after a Super Bowl party dissolved into an alcohol fueled jam session. The idea was to play straight up Rock & Roll. Not Punk Rock, or Indie Rock, or Glam Rock, but straight up Rock music which had been lacking for quite some time. Joined by then-bassist Andy Dahill the band began gigging around Manhattan’s Lower East Side and East Village. After some time playing such clubs as Continental, Fontana’s, The Delancey, Lit, & Sine-E the burden of the Rock & Roll lifestyle took its toll on the band. Andy took a break to record with the U.S. Bombs, Jason began touring with Murphy’s Law, Roger left the group and founded The Bullitts alongside with Andy. Mick & Bam enlisted new members but the band seemed to have run its course. After Mick rejoined the newly resurrected L.E.S. Stitches (with Andy in tow), it seemed as though The Threads were no more.
TEN TON MOJO / New York
Ten Ton Mojo is a rock band on the rise! They are being hailed in the press as "easily the best rock band in New York City" (The Aquarian Weekly). In the wake of their independently released self-titled album, Ten Ton Mojo has been providing live support for The Supersuckers, The Dirty Pearls, The Compulsions, Jesse Malin, John 5, Smash Fashion, the late Scott Weiland and others. Hip shaking rhythms blend hard rock, soulful blues and southern charm to create the new classic rock. Their single "Pinball Girl" is prominently featured in the indie movie Pinball Donut Girl and a remixed version of their track "One and Only" is being featured in Suzuki's new ATV ad campaign.
Ten Ton Mojo has a street wise guitar driven sound crafted by guitarists Scott Lano and Christian Realmuto which then gets carried home by the searing vocals of Dave Anthony. Backed by thundering rhythm section of Paul Kane
on drums and Chris Laubis on bass, this band is the rebirth of real American rock and roll!
Ten Ton Mojo has magically captured the secret for success in an evolving industry which demands both mass market appeal and personalized attention to a strong local fan base. They create a musical energy which has yet to be experienced in the 21st century. Along the East Coast, Ten Ton Mojo has already become a game-changer.
