They incorporate costumes, choreography, and projections into their high-energy live shows. Their discography includes two EPs: Say You Love Me Like You Mean It and Raptured Live,both available on itunes. Led by Lauren Worsham and her Obie Award winning husband Kyle Jarrow, Sky-Pony also features the talents of Kevin Wunderlich, Lizzie O'Hara, Kristine Piacentile, Jessi Suzuki, Perry Silver, Eric Day and David Blasher. The Wall Street Journal describes Sky-Pony as "a 1960s girl group on crack - tight, fierce, hilarious and out of their minds." More info on the band at http://www.sky-pony.com.
The Deafening is New York to its core. A ferocious four-piece born of the city's eternal energy. A raw tribute to its defiant crush. With blues beating back and rough punk ethos, The Deafening are the natural heirs to the Bowery's big bad seventies sound. With wild man Burt Rock on guitar, Dylan Doyle on bass, Mick Harrison whipping back the skins, and Tony Award winning Lena Hall wailing her little black heart out, this four-piece seeks to return to rock it's dirty sexy city heart. http://www.thedeafening.com
