Sylvana Joyce and the Moment
Sylvana Joyce and the Moment
Sylvana Joyce and The Moment is an award-winning alternative rock band based in Jersey City; their special brand of Balkan folk and theatrically infused rock has garnered major press from the likes of Huffington Post and MTV, and Sylvana Joyce herself has earned her stripes being a regular contributor to several music collectives in North Jersey, Including ALEO Productions, The Latest Noise, Spaghetti Sessions, and Rock It Docket. Heavyhead, Joyce’s sophomore LP, already has a warm reception from rock journal The Aquarian Weekly, calling the record “on the podium of greatness” and that Joyce “has struck original gold”.
Sea of Otters
Sea of Otters
Sea of Otters is a Jersey City band that started in Asbury Park in the early 90’s. Sea of Otters became popular after Matt Pinfield played their song “Disclaimer” on WHTG/FM106.3 FM. College Radio and some commercial stations started playing “Disclaimer”, “My Lawn Is My Life” and others throughout the 1990’s. Sea of Otters also gotten many good reviews in The Aquarian and Village Voice. Sea of Otters plays funky Alt Rock (whatever that means) with a twist of Jazz and Blues, or something like that.

The tight rhythms and three part harmony add many layers to this diverse and driven group of friendly folks, including Nick Ciavatta-Lead Vocals & Guitar, Pat Lally-Guitar & Vocals, John Warren-Bass Guitar, Lou Iacobelli-Drums, Keith Vukan-Keyboards, Ralph Capasso-Saxaphone, Josh Mizruchi-Trumpet.

Plastiq Passion
Plastiq Passion
Take everything you think you know about girl bands and throw it out the window because Plastiq Passion rocks out like no other. Their energetic and passionate live show continues to create quite a buzz amongst concert goers in New York City as well as nation-wide, ever since their 2008 cross-country tour. Their CD, To Be a Blade of Grass in Cracked Cement has been in regular rotation on New York City's only modern rock station 101.9 RXP since its release in 2010 and continues to garner excellent reviews which opened the door for them to open up for such notable acts as The Cult, Dramarama, The Misfits, Girl In A Coma and Tegan & Sara. Plastiq Passion is made up of the enigmatic Jessica Chaos on vocals, the quiet but wise Deborrah Sanchez on lead guitar, the rather tall Christine Simon on bass, and the animal Stacey Lee on drums. Collectively they have a goal to play every single rock venue in America (and also the world) including, but not limited to, your basement. So keep a look out for these four hardcore momma-jamma's and don't mess with them, because they have a black-belt in bar stools. Check out their new CD, Every Which Way.
