Villins
Villins
Villins are a genre-bending pop duo based in NYC featuring singer Jesyka and guitarist Kareem "Jesus" Devlin (Kareem was given the nickname "Jesus" by Lady Gaga as the lead guitarist on her Monster Ball Tour). With a growing reputation for their sexy and intense glam rock live show, as well as for their anthemic and unpredictable songwriting, Villins are a mysterious musical powerhouse full of surprises.
Zombie Sundae
Zombie Sundae
"MADELEINE PLA is the fierce frontwoman of Zombie Sundae. She honed her vocal sound with extensive training at UC Berkeley where she received her degree in Music. She has years of experience starring in various musical theater productions and fronting high school rock bands. As a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist (Piano, Guitar, and Bass), she is comfortable in front of any size crowd, having performed in intimate coffee house settings as well as 5000+ attended football stadiums. All this, combined with her love for glitter and all things dark, molded her into the fiery songstress she is today.
BEN SCHAARE, hard-hitting guitarist for the band, hails from New Zealand, having played shows all throughout the lower North Island and winning the Smokefree Rockquest Battle of the Bands regional award for Best Lyricist. He is a self-taught musician.
JACOB LANE is the powerhouse drummer of Zombie Sundae. He studied Jazz and Alternative Music with a Julliard School Graduate, performed in the Canadian Music Festival in Toronto, and was featured on drums in the MTV music video for Ricky Jarman’s R&B song “Make It Happen”. He’s been in many Alt bands, playing drums, guitar, and bass.
PHILLIP KERGER, a classically trained musician, is bassist for the band. He grew up in Germany playing guitar since age 8, and performed with a classical guitar orchestra until he journeyed to New York City, where he picked up the bass. His training allowed him to quickly transfer his skills to the new instrument…and now he can’t get enough of it.
JORDAN MEL hails from New Jersey and has been playing guitar since age 10. He now brings all those hours of practice to Zombie Sundae. He was taught guitar by Ed Fuhrman, of Hades, then trained at School of Rock for 6 years where he also learned piano and vocals and taught himself bass and drums. He has a considerable background in heavy metal and isn’t afraid to shred when he wants to.
This is ZOMBIE SUNDAE...They're Fast. They're Loud. They're Alt Rock.

The Poynt
The Poynt
"Hailing from Astoria, Queens, The Poynt have earned a reputation as NYC’s rock band. With their “never play it safe” attitude, The Poynt have taken convention by the balls.

The release of their 2015 debut album This is American Royalty highlighted the issues of societal obsession with both deifying and crucifying the modern celebrity through an intricate, progressive rock concept album. Uber Rock’s Ross Welford writes that the album was done with “such professionalism that it's hard not to think of The Poynt as a lot larger band than they actually are.”

After a year of supporting the album, The Poynt returned to the studio in 2016. With a different stylistic approach in mind for the follow up album, The Poynt reminisced back to those moments in music that changed each band member’s life, and the common factor: 90's rock. Out of this emerged the Alpha Queue series, a two-part EP that traverses the alternative rock realm with elements that define the “high quality rock n’ roll” essence that is The Poynt. The first EP, Alpha Queue, premiered digitally on March 31, 2017, and physical distributions will see a street date on June 2, 2017. Alpha Queue II is scheduled for a 2018 fourth-quarter release.

Alpha Queue has been well received thus far, and it has allowed The Poynt to play alongside Sponge, Tantric, Angel Vivaldi, Eyes Set to Kill, Doll Skin, Message from Sylvia, Eve to Adam, Michael Angelo Batio, as well as forming artist relationships with companies like Moniker Guitars and Source Audio.

In sum, from progressive to grunge to alternative rock (and everything in between), The Poynt finds its comfort zone in drawing inspiration outside of the lines. "
