The Blackfires
The Blackfires
With members from the UK, Russia, Spain, Uruguay and NYC, The Blackfires truly are an international band. Between them they are PhD educated, hold degrees from Oxford and Columbia, are trained in philology and film-making, and the list goes on. Yet, as accomplished as they are in other fields, music is their forte. Yes they are fucking good. Pulling off Deep Purple's opus Child in Time and the odd Led Zeppelin cover to a tee are just some of the things to expect from The Blackfires.

Leading the band is Muscovite Andrey "Cheggi" Chegodaev with a voice and onstage antics that are immediately recognizable and captivating. Plant, Gillan, and Jon Bon Jovi all come to mind but there's definitely something unique about Cheggi's vocal stylings. On guitar is Englishman Anthony Mullin, who's jammed with the likes of Brad Whitford & Joe Perry, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, & Orianthi, to name a few. His rhythm playing is notable, however it's his scorching blues-based lead improvisation which really draws the listener in and provides the perfect accompaniment to Chegodaev. Also on guitar, Spanish born Hector Marin employs his more schooled approach to deliver intricate leads and rhythms, evoking Iron Maiden & Thin Lizzy in the process. Uruguayan Grasebo Doe is a rock-solid rock bass player, enough said really. Lastly, American Joe Mitch is the secret weapon in The Blackfires' arsenal. Aside from delivering consistent and crushing rhythms on the drums, he also sings and adds the odd guitar solo to a track or two. A true asset to the band.--

THE HELL YEAH BABIES
THE HELL YEAH BABIES
Every band needs a distinctive voice; The Hell Yeah Babies have three. Guitarists Mike Pfeiffer and Sam Paxton and bassist Dylan Roth swap lead vocals, stack harmonies, and weave countermelodies with a joyful synergy that evokes One Direction as much as it does The Beatles. Together with drummer Julian Ames, they craft pop songs with instantly memorable hooks but also layers of musical intrigue—the kind of songs that if you want to sing along (and you will), you’ll have a half-dozen parts to choose from. If Elvis Costello, Rivers Cuomo, and Jack Antonoff started a boy band, it’d sound like The Hell Yeah Babies.
