Wild Adriatic
Wild Adriatic
Wild Adriatic is a band of four friends seeking to carry forth the torch of timeless rock n roll infused with tons of soul, captivating guitar work, and an impressive live show. The Saratoga Springs, NY outfit released their latest EP "Lock & Key" in April 2012 and immediately picked back up with their relentless performance schedule throughout the East Coast. A series of quirky music videos and a humble, eager-to-connect-with-people mindset has quickly brought the band positive attention from music lovers, press, and industry heads alike. "Flawlessly tight with infectious melodies and tons of soul." - Relix | "Full of rocking blues, soul, and depth." - The Huffington Post

"…they play bluesy, sleazy, guitar raunch…" - ROLLING STONE.

A rock & roll band with an enduring fondness for pure pop and a wicked, sly sense of humor, TAB the Band defy easy categorization. They may love the Beatles and Cheap Trick as much as T-Rex and the Rolling Stones, but TAB aren’t classic rockers; they’re a vibrant, contemporary band that blends the vigor of punk, the might of arena rock and the melodicism of power-pop, earning the admiration of Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse, Stone Temple Pilots, Slash, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr, alt-rock stalwarts who requested TAB The Band as their opening act. TAB the Band has also played alongside the likes of Cage the Elephant, Art Brut, and others.

TAB the Band has been featured by MTV's Jersey Shore, HBO's Entourage, the MLB2K11 video game, and at major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Mountain Jam, Hyde Park Festival, Download Festival, SXSW and CMJ.

TAB the Band’s full range can be heard on Zoo Noises (released Jan 2010), a freewheeling, all-encompassing carnival ride, fueled by such intoxicating singles as the percussive “She Said No (I Love You)” and the breakneck hooks of “Bought and Sold.”

There was a time when rock and roll wasn't just another musical genre, it was an attitude. A way to give voice to the voiceless in times of despair, passion, heartbreak, and rage. It was the limbo that guttural sex and violent drug abuse danced in through a reckless journey to a loud decay. It was a beautiful bomb.

As Dylan would say, "the times they are a-changin'". And although it's not likely the world will ever see another Hendrix or Zeppelin, there are still those who believe in the dark glory days of rock.

Yearning for those dog-days is The VeeVees. This two man rock band from Brooklyn has little concern for anything other than creating raw, truthful, visceral music. Frontman Garrett Cillo first met powerhouse drummer, Andrea Belfiore, at an underground masquerade on Halloween night in New York City's Chinatown, circa 2011.

Cillo, being an avid songwriter, was immediately drawn to Andrea's incredible adaptability with any composition thrown his way. The duo hammered on, quickly garnering an exciting ten song set. From that set, the band pushed for their debut EP, hooking up with versatile Producer/Engineer Ben Rice of Degraw Studios. The VeeVees along with Mr. Rice arose from the studio with a strong debut aptly titled, "Tell Me It's Electric".

The sound of the EP emulates a grooving, infectious and heavy nature, setting an exhilarated mood. It's one you can turn on late at night in the confines of your own bed to visualize and replay your own personal fantasies. This original soundtrack seems to be the mere kickoff to a long, prosperous journey among The VeeVees' rocking vessel. If "Tell Me It's Electric" is any indication of what's to come for these vicious Brooklynites, then hold on to your sanity and keep your arms and legs inside the coaster at all times.
