    Alternative Rock

    Final Show Ever

    This Condition, often abbreviated as TC, is a pop rock band originating from Long Island, NY. The band was formed in 2007. This Condition has performed with major bands such as Yellowcard and Brand New. The band's name originates from lyrics to the song "Dark Blue" by Jack's Mannequin.

    History: Formation (2006-2007): Guitarist Mike McGovern, drummer Steve Keyes and vocalist Nathen Cyphert met while working at American Eagle Outfitters. In late 2006, the three, coming out of recent band break ups, combined with guitarist Anthony Giambalvo and Nick Cantatore (who had previously played with Keyes in a band) to form a new band. In early 2007, This Condition was formed.

    This Condition went into the studio in the summer of 2007 to record their first demos. The demos garnered the band some attention on Long Island, inspiring one journalist to write that Cyphert's vocals both resemble those of The Rocket Summer's Bryce Avary. These positive reviews, as well as their growing popularity in their live shows carried over into their success in 2008. We Don't Have to Be Alone and departure of Giambalvo (2008-2009): The band branched out and grew in popularity in 2008, sharing the stage with Yellowcard and Brand New after winning Adelphi's Battle of the Bands, and landing a cover article on Pulse Magazine. Following their month-long East Coast tour in the summer of 2008, they returned to Killingsworth Studio in Hicksville, New York with producer Anthony Santonocito to record their 1st EP, We Don't Have to Be Alone, released on November 18, 2008. This Condition was also selected to perform on the Zumiez Stage at The Bamboozle 2009. They headed into Pilot Recording Studios in Boonton, NJ in early June 2009 to record three tracks with producer Rob Freeman, formerly of Hidden in Plain View. These three tracks were intended to be released as singles through iTunes and similar digital music retailers, with the last track, Take, Take, Take never making it to official digital release. The Band also performed on the Stop Stage at the tail end of the 2009 Warped Tour. At the end of 2009, the band parted ways with lead guitarist, Anthony Giambalvo, who wanted to focus on his education.

    Spirit (2010-present): Following the band's departure with Giambalvo, they headed back to Pilot Recording Studios in April 2010, recording a five-song EP with producer Rob Freeman. It is tentatively scheduled to be released in the summer of 2010. On April 21, 2010, they left a MySpace bulletin that stated that Steve Keyes left the band, returning to school to get his degree. During that time, drummer Devin Passariello, formerly of The Bride Wore Black, joined the band. The band became a five-piece again in early May 2010, with guitarist-vocalist Stephen Conley, formerly of The Victory from New Jersey, joining the band.

  • Lights Resolve

    Lights Resolve

    Pop

    Three men, covering two ends of the sound spectrum, share one common vision. For the expansive alternative trio Lights Resolve, it’s all about maximizing their assets: engaging and arresting listeners with just three instruments and a microphone. Now armed with their debut full-length, the band is about to bring their sonically galactic, yet incredibly minimalist, message to the masses.

    Lights Resolve—which also includes drummer Neal Saini and bassist Luke Daniels—formed in Long Island, NY in 2006 after the trio’s former lead vocalist departed from their prior four-piece outfit. The band has since issued three self-produced EPs and has toured extensively, playing with multi-platinum recording artists such as the Used, Panic at the Disco, Shiny Toy Guns, Dashboard Confessional, Phantom Planet and Straylight Run, and has appeared at festivals like the Bamboozle, SXSW, CMJ and Warped Tour, all on a DIY basis. In 2009 Rolling Stone dubbed Lights Resolve one of the year’s “Breakout Bands,” and the group was recently named “Unsigned Band of the Month” by Alternative Press magazine. Their song “Dreaming of Love” was also recently ranked the sixth-most downloaded song for the Rock Band videogame, logging 500,000+ downloads.

  • The Dirty Gems

    The Dirty Gems

    Pop

    The Dirty Gems stampeded their way onto the New York rock scene with an energy and undeniable appeal that leaves bands with 10-times more revolutions around the sun wondering where they can buy whatever makes these fledgling stadium rockers so damn irresistible. They blend together sonic influences from No Doubt, Gnarls Barkley, Janelle Monáe and Amy Winehouse with the swagger of The Notorious B.I.G., the grimy blues of Jeff Beck and the theatrical grandiosity of Queen.

    The group was formed in early 2011 from the wreckage of the short-lived-but-popular Long Island cover band, Pump Yo Brakes. Front woman, Raycee Jones; bassist, Ulises Amaya; drummer, Jack Goode and keyboard/synth wizard, Cam Underhill had a vision that they could take the momentum from their energetic live cover sets and translate it into original songs that would equal or outdistance the pop and rock classics they were playing in dive bars all over the Island. They invited singer-songwriter, Mills, to join the collective in writing ditties and performing on piano & vocals and then embarked on a quest for the missing piece of the puzzle: a killer guitarist who would jive with the band’s quirky sense of humor and bring an extra layer of sexy to The Dirty Gems sound. With guitar guru, Gary Heimbauer, The Dirty Gems set sail on the High Seas of Popdom and they haven’t looked back yet.

    The Dirty Gems’ very first public performance won them the 2011 Hofstra University Battle of the Bands, securing the band a festival-opening slot, where they shared the bill with the likes of Big Boi, Minus The Bear and The London Souls. From there, the band went on to cut their teeth at notable NYC venues including Arlene’s Grocery, UC Lounge, Bar East and various establishments-of-drinking on Long Island. These early shows built a significant buzz around the band, culminating in a wildly successful performance to celebrate the release of their debut EP, THE DIRTY GEMS, at The Bitter End on September 2nd, 2011. Fans of The Dirty Gems packed the legendary club to nearly capacity, inciting ire amongst the wait staff and a pronouncement of “please come back anytime you like” from the promoter.

  • Corey Balsamo

    Corey Balsamo

    Singer-Songwriter

    After leaving his last band, the Long Island native singer-songwriter began focusing on a path towards a solo career. A path that would land him the honor of touring nationally, with acclaimed recognition and radio airplay for his 2009 release, "September". The 19-year-old's upbeat pop/rock melodies and "old soul" lyricism mesh together in an artistic form that is untouched ground for many songwriters of our day.

  • The Victory

    The Victory

    Pop

    The Victory is a regionally touring four piece Rock act that brings the edge of the Foo Fighters glazed with the Pop sensibility of Relient K. Hailing from North-Eastern New Jersey, the band takes a strong stance on suicide prevention and awareness, a cause that each of its members equally believe in. The Victory brings professionalism with a humble reserve to its performances, and it soon becomes evident that musicianship comes naturally to its members.
    With a sugar sweet sense of melody, the musical punch of a heavyweight boxer, and as- real-as-it-gets lyrics, The Victory brings an honest, refreshing sound with a message.
