latewaves
latewaves is a band from Asbury Park, NJ. About twelve years ago; Shawna Grabowski (drums) was invited to see her sister’s friend, Mike Pellegrino (guitar/vocals), play a small club in Central Jersey. It was Shawna’s first “show.” Years had passed, Mike is now dating the aforementioned sister, and both separately played in different groups as time went by. But in the late summer of 2016, Shawna and Mike found themselves anxious to start a project. The two had spoken about starting a band for years and on a sweltering day in the middle of July the two stepped into a storage unit – turned rehearsal space – and wrote a song called “If It’s Over.” The two wrote and played every chance they could and before they knew it they found themselves at Portrait Recording Studios to start tracking their first EP entitled “Partied Out,” about getting kicked while you’re down, wondering if you should even get up, and possibly seeing a flicker of light at the end of a long, dark, and damp tunnel.

Young Thieves
Young Thieves
Young Thieves are an electro-indie/pop four-piece from New York City featuring Alexandra Amor (vocals), Dmitry Libman (guitar/keyboards/production), Andrew Lynch (guitar/keyboards) and Johnny Coryn (drums). Alexandra’s impeccable blend of the vocal pop capability of Christina Aguilera and the raw edginess of Amy Winehouse makes her the perfect match for this tenacious new group. The music showcases a synthesizer-laden and pop sensible style, with catchy melodic hooks atop chic instrumental production. This anthemic quartet is ready to make their mark and push new boundaries in the music industry.


Young Thieves began their live imprint by performing to a sell-out crowd at New York City’s historic Webster Hall. Amidst other select performances and showcases, they have continued writing and recording with producers as Matt Squire (Ariana Grande, Kesha, Demi Lovato), Jonny Fung (American Authors) and Andy Tongren (Young Rising Sons), pushing the envelope in preparation of their 2018 debut EP. Debut single “What You Want” streaming everywhere on 4.6.18.
Deal Casino
Deal Casino
Deal Casino is a fiercely talented four-piece rock band from New Jersey.
Each of the band’s members - Joe P., Jon Rodney, Jozii, and Chris Donofrio – has musical roots planted firmly in the Garden State and, together, they’ve used a minimalist approach to create a highly infectious sound, with elements of alt-rock, pop and blues.
Given their undeniable chemistry, perhaps it’s no surprise that Joe and Jon have been playing together since the 7th grade, the same year they snagged Jozii from another band. Several years later, while relocating to a resurgent Asbury Park, they found their drummer Chris, and the deal was done.
Since then, Deal Casino has been writing and recording, as well as playing relentlessly in and around New Jersey, with a residency on the boardwalk during the summer and downtown during the winter.
“It's been a conscious decision to take a minimalist approach,” shares Joe P. “So much of the music that we love is a performance that was recorded by a band playing together simultaneously in a studio. We wanted to challenge ourselves to do this and not add any additional layers that we can't play live. It forced us to take away what wasn't necessary and to listen differently.”
Drawing from influences like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Tame Impala and LCD Soundsystem, Deal Casino is committed to evolving musically, while venturing further down the artist’s path with a focus on great songs and musicianship.
“The commitment to work hard has inspired us to go deeper,” explains Joe. “When anyone in the band writes, it pushes the others to write more often. And, seeing how our idols lived and worked has been inspiring and makes us more aware of what it takes to get to the next level.”
