The original blues rock of Queens County Roots is aimed at getting bodies up and moving. In the early 2010's, Queens, NYC-based musicians Marlon Hurt and Alex Fedorow met while playing in a piano rock outfit. Marlon later founded the original blues band The Hurt Project, and Alex joined the pop rock group Gillian. The two decided to combine these blues and pop influences in early 2017 with QCR.

The band is:

Marlon Hurt, guitar, vocals
Alex Fedorow, bass

Chris is originally from Vancouver, and a veteran of NYC-based bands like Dear Comrade and Circadian Clock.

Honey Trap
Honey Trap
Honey Trap is a 4 member, female fronted New York City based rock band that formed in the summer of 2014 which juxtaposes sensual yet edgy vocals over melodic guitar, groovy base lines and heavy hitting beats.
The band recorded their first EP in 2015 titled 'Four Play' with recording engineer Steven Albini at Electrical Audio Chicago, IL. utilizing traditional analog tracking methods which has been going obsolete against modern digital tracking. 'Four Play' was mastered with 4x Grammy nominated Joe Laporta of Sterling Sound New York, NY.
Honey Trap believes in bringing back the fading hard rock scene and is known to play a variety of small and large venues including but not limited to underground shows, public/private/VIP events, house parties, festivals, galleries and cabaret acts featuring their signature go-go dancing honey bee. Honey Trap exudes raw rock & roll stage presence and gets the audience up slam dancing.
