Brand of Julez - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Brand of Julez
When you think of the South Bronx, you don’t think of modern, melodic rock anthems, passionately aggressive vocals, heavy guitars, ripping solos, driving bass lines or pounding drums fills. However, that is exactly what Brand of Julez delivers night after night.
Formed by brothers Julez Zamora(vocals/guitars) and Brandon Zamora(bass/backing vocals) in 2011 at the ripe old age of 16 and 13, Brand of Julez have raged their way up the NYC ranks with a passion and fury that cannot be denied. With the release of their debut EP in September 2012, Brand of Julez have relentlessly worked to bring their brand of heavy rock to the masses with incendiary performances at legendary venues like Webster Hall (The Studio, The Marlin Room & The Grand Ballroom), The Gramercy Theatre, The Bowery Ballroom, Mercury Lounge, Irving Plaza and Starland Ballroom. Their powerful performances have brought them to share the stage with recording artists like Pop Evil, Red Sun Rising, Ace Frehley, Drowning Pool, Adrenaline Mod, Burn Halo, Orianthi, Alice Cooper and Full Devil Jacket.
In 2014, Brand of Julez began working with producer Joey Z (guitarist for Life of Agony) in what has led to the band’s first full length album. The culmination of those sessions led to the release of BOJ’s first single “Monkey” at The Gramercy Theatre in June 2015. Their forthcoming full length album is currently being planned for a future release.
With the addition of Zakk Dubois on drums and percussion, whose powerful presence has ignited a new era for the band, Brand of Julez are ready to deliver their heavy rage of rock that will have you banging your head, with your horns raised and leave you with songs that you'll be singing long after the show has ended.
Off The Turnpike - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Off The Turnpike
Disruptive and dauntless, OFF THE TURNPIKE is setting fire to everything, and is dedicated to a loud new way to release loud new music. The hard rock/alternative band from New York City is uninterested in recycling sounds of the past - they’re moving forward over untraveled ground with a diverse sound that is all their own. Even before the release of their 2012 self-titled debut album, OFF THE TURNPIKE had built a reputation for their explosive live shows; but it’s their plans for the future that has people buzzing.

Instead of releasing a traditional album in a world where the focus has shifted more towards single songs, the band will be releasing six songs individually, giving each song its own time to shine. Each song will be its own multi-layered event. From release parties, to special concerts, as well as a progressive online component featuring collaborations with artists of all kinds, and mind bending music videos for each release, OFF THE TURNPIKE plans to support their music and connect to their growing fanbase in new ways.

Things are changing, and OFF THE TURNPIKE is changing with them - but one thing remains the same: the hunger for real, raw, rock music.

OFF THE TURNPIKE is: Andy Sexton (Vocals), Christian Vasquez (Guitar), Shawn Abraham (Bass), and Shawn “Salchi” Dieppa (Drums). They are not from New Jersey.
