NEW YORK NO STARS
The New York No Stars are a band of beautiful contradictions.
Born on the Bowery with tremendous pop potential, you can dress
them up, you can dress them down, and you can take them anywhere.
Theiving innovators of their own Pop Punk Space Rock genre, they
have been compared to and stolen from an eclectic litany of pioneers.
Ramones and Radiohead meets Concrete Blonde and Blondie. In a blender.
The DRIVE is an all-girl alternative hard rock band based in New
York City. This 4 piece band performs all over NYC at the hottest
rock clubs, gathering a following and making a name for themselves.
They write gutsy music with melody and some down right heavy riffs
with a heavier attitude. The songs, together with a high energy
live set have been the
reason for the growing buzz about the band.
They've been shopping a 6-song CD sampler for the past year, and
a new CD will be released in June 2003. They were recently endorsed
by Epiphone guitars, and have now been selected to be featured in
a major cable network reality show airing the summer of 2003 about
the making of an hot up-and-coming NYC band's first video.
Portia's bad-ass band Portiagirl, with awesome backup singers Ki
Ki and La'Shelle, has played many gigs around NYC. Each of these
three ladies has also rocked the house at many of Don Hill's BITCH
shows. Portia toured as the lead guitarist with fellow rocker Kelis
as the opening act for U2's Elevation Tour, and also rocks with
Nona Hendryx as a guitarist and background vocalist. She has worked
with such well-known producers as P. Diddy, Wyclef Jean, and Malik
Pendelton, and is part of Fender's landmark "Women Who Rock
Play Fender" ad campaign.
At age 6, LOURDS wailed on her violin and dazzled audience
at Carnegie Hall. Since then, LOURDS, a New York city native, along
with her explosive band, continue to mesmerize crowds as she incorporates
traces of her classical roots into a cutting edge, emotional music
that is singable, hooky and most distinctly her own. Witness a LOURDS
show and see audiences across the country raising their hands up
and singing right along.
"Hot new music star plays to a packed house..."
- Caitlin Cleary, TheSeattle Times
"... a doll to watch, the beauteous and wild LOURDS"
- Pamela Des Barres, E! Entertainment
"... The fun has just broken out, well it has since LOURDS
came. One ofthe most exciting violinists in all of America from
Carnegie Hall to Fox..."
- Brian Kilmeade, Fox News

TANG is the combined assault of Bonnie Parker and Denny Colt and
was conceived out of chaos in 1997. TANG delivers a dual attack
of metal/goth with Denny on guitar and Bonnie on bass, alternating
vocals, trading phrases back and forth in their own burning style.
They have toured Europe, Canada and the U.S. and have opened shows
for such artists as W.A.S.P., Dokken, Hammerfall, Helloween, Dee
Snider, Boy Sets Fire and many others.
The hottest new addition to TANG is Vanessa on keyboards. She comes
from a classically trained background and has toured Europe and
the US with the gothic metal band Vasaria. Right now, TANG plays
with an army of killer drummers... including skull-splitting Nick
Cipriano and an occasional appearance by TANG's original drummer,Gail
Walden!!! TANG will be returning to Europe in 2003 to tour and promote
the release of their third CD.
