Winter of 2017. After bouncing back from personal troubles, Vick Nader (vocals) broke a 2 years live performance hiatus teaming up with an old music companion/former band mate Ed Marson (drums) and Berkeley graduates Vinny Da Silva (guitar) and Apoena Frota Jones (bass) to have fun and jam out some rock tunes.

It wasn’t until a few months later, in August 2017 that The Velvicks finally debuted live at Irving Plaza. Since then, they have been refreshing the rock scene in NYC, delivering an all original "stadium rock" experience to intimate and well known venues like Rough Trade, Union Pool and Gramercy Theater without having any music released yet.

With influences from Pink Floyd, QOTSA, The Black Keys and Radiohead, yet a sound and vision completely singular, the general feedback so far has been nothing but inspirational and 100% positive.

“Songs are making sense, the band is delivering badass live performances and people are responding to it.” said Vick.

The band is less than 1 year old and it's currently mixing their first EP “Red Head” to be released soon. Check out their calendar for upcoming dates and experience them live. The Velvicks are known for their energetic shows and their energetic after parties.
Beyond the glam and glitz of Hollywood exists a world rarely represented by a real sound, a hotbed of creativity and determination far away from the lights and hype of the “now” generation, in a world that seemingly gets more distorted every day. FENCER brings a raw power to the soundtrack, a cross section of blues based riffs and a wall of sound that is both unmistakable and unique. FENCER is fronted by vocalist and guitarist Field Cate and the “locked in” Sauve brothers, Cameron and Scott holding down the fort on drum and bass. The trio weaves an unmistakable punch and emotional sound that creates an intense, heavy atmosphere to escape the everyday grind. With the much anticipated release of their debut video “Junebug” in the new year, FENCER will be bringing it from deep in the heart of LA’s San Fernando Valley to an anxious world. Spring 2019 sees Fencer out with BADFLOWER on their US Tour. Come be a part of it. It’s quite simple really, FENCER is real.
