Tragedy - All Metal Tribute to the BeeGees & Beyond
Tragedy takes disco, soft-rock and pop classics, and completely reimagines them as glorious, red-hot heavy metal. Their music is sure to get your head bangin’, your booty shakin’ – and put a smile on your face and your fist in the air.
Tragedy’s concept, while subversive and humorous, goes well beyond what others have done in satirical music – they celebrate the soul of the original song, even while turning the soundscape on its head. The amps are cranked to eleven, but the emotion is not lost. You discover new meaning in songs that have been a part of your life for as long as you can remember. You laugh and cry. Dance and mosh. And feel newly connected to the disco-metal that was inside you all along.
Tragedy does not lazily rely on the concept or “the joke”. The band plunges deep – blazing musicianship, tantalizing riffs and stunning vocals. All except for Lance the towelboy. He’s just an idiot.
Born out of the impenetrable divide of Disco and Metal, these fearsome brothers fearlessly obliterated the truce line that had been set in the great Disco/Metal Peace accord of 1977 when they seamlessly blended the two genres with their debut album, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong – a collection of Bee Gees songs redone in a heavy metal treatment reminiscent of Judas Priest, Motley Crue and Guns N Roses. Since then, they have crisscrossed the globe with their spectacular live shows, storming across the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France and Switzerland. On subsequent full length albums, Humbled By Our Greatness, Death To False Disco Metal, The Solo Albums, The Joy of Sex, Tragedy Goes to the Movies and #1 Christmas Holiday Party Mix, Tragedy spread their glittered wings to take on non-Bee Gees classics from the disco era, soft rock anthems and party jams. In 2015, Tragedy broke the internet with a viral video featuring their take on You’re the One That I Want from the Grease soundtrack. In 2017, Tragedy’s video for Stayin’ Alive broke the internet once again. In 2019 two albums hit the NACC Heavy Top 30 charts.
In 2021, Tragedy signed a worldwide record deal with Napalm Records. The first album with Napalm is Disco Balls to the Wall – release date July 30, 2021. It has hit the top 10 in Hard Rock/Metal charts in Europe and the US.
Tragedy consistently tours North America, UK & continental Europe, and has headlined festival stages of events such as SXSW (USA), CMJ (USA), Musikfest (USA), Bloodstock (UK), Rebellion (UK), Summer Breeze (Germany), Foudrock (France), Motocultor (France), ParkPop (Belgium), Glastonbudget (UK), Legends of Rock (UK), Belladrum (UK) and Hammerfest/Hard Rock Hell (UK).
Dedication to excellence is what separates U.S. metal heroes THE FOUR HORSEMEN from the ocean of 'tribute' bands. The only album-quality Metallica tribute band on the planet, they deliver the unforgettable, note-for-note perfect experience that is guaranteed to surpass even the wildest dreams of Metallica aficionados. The speed, the precision, the signature riffs, and the look - THE FOUR HORSEMEN are the real deal!
They have the talent to deliver the sonic authenticity of the vintage thrash songs with high caliber execution - including the blistering vocals of the albums like no one else. No gimmicks on the stage. Just sheer energy, chest-pounding, crowd-pleasing power. The very same intensity that drew millions to Metallica in the 80's. Guitarist/vocalist Sean Perry explains; "Fans deserve the highest quality reproduction of Metallica's records and shows. That's why we're here."
Guided by his vision and determination, the band have become heroes to their ever-growing fan base in the U.S. and are now spreading their wings to take over the globe.
"I saw Metallica on the Black Album tour in 1991 and that experience changed me forever. The sound, the energy between band and audience - from that moment on I knew what I was put on earth to do. Music is my life!" says Sean. Little did he know that his thrasher heroes would play an even bigger part in his artistic future when he was approached by a Metallica tribute band looking for a new, charismatic front man in late 2006.
Every live performance they have done has received widespread acclaim; the band have taken the art of paying tribute to a new level of potency. Focusing on Metallica's first four, classic albums - Kill 'Em All, Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets, and ...And Justice For All - with a smattering of anthems from the all-conquering Metallica/Black Album they deliver a show metal fans dream of.
The Four Horsemen have now taken global management by Jeff Hair, legendary sound engineer for MANOWAR.
Be warned: They are primed and ready to bring their high-energy show to stages around the world!"

PROMISED LAND - Bruce Sprinsteen Tribute
A Jersey Shore Tribute Band Like No Other!
The core members of PROMISED LAND - Kenny, Mike and Rob have been playing music together since they were just 15 years old. The first time they played at the Jersey Shore was in the summer of 1990 at the world-famous Stone Pony where they opened for E. STREET band member - Nils Lofgren. Let's just say that ever since that show the Jersey Shore was permanently injected into their blood, and they have been a fixture on the Jersey Shore music scene ever since. Headlining rooms like The Tradewinds, The Wonder Bar, The Stone Pony, Headliners, The Green Room, Club Bene, The Saint, The Rocking Horse, Fast Lane and Birch Hill just to name a few!
As the original band ArthurKill, they toured the country putting out three CDs highlighted by the song "Closer to Free" which hit #1 on College Rock Radio. It was after this time the trio decided to start this Ultimate Jersey Shore Tribute Band - PROMISED LAND.
It was with the idea to bring the music they loved growing up with the same energy and flare that the Jersey Shore bands delivered for them. Kenny says Springsteen and South Side Johnny shined the light on rock music for us. The shows Bruce put on, the way he entertains and sings with emotion. The power of the E. STREET band. The sound of the horns in South Side’s music, there was nothing else like it. Then Lil Steven came out with three great records in the 80’s and we were hooked!! This music was and still is the soundtrack of our lives.
So, they put together a band to deliver that same emotion night after night – a 9 piece band with a full horn section (The ArthurKill Horns) that performs all the classic Springsteen, South Side Johnny, Lil Steven and even some Bon Jovi songs that turn summer nights into summer dreams!! PROMISED LAND has the same power and emotion that a Bruce show delivers with a band that can seamlessly weave from E. STREET to The Asbury Jukes, to The Disciples of Soul all in one set.
The band consists of Toni Nostro on piano, Mike Petillo Jr. on keyboards, Dom Patella on bass, Alex Mahoney on saxophone, Brian Miesegaes on trumpet, Allan Katz on trombone, Mike Petillo on guitar, Rob Petillo on drums and Kenny Munson lead vocals and rhythm guitar.
With Mike and Rob being brothers and cousins to Kenny, PROMISED LAND is a tight group. Some of the highlights along the PL journey have been opening for South Side Johnny as well as John Cafferty at the Stone Pony Summer Stage to being reviewed in Backstreets magazine, headlining the SXSW Festival, B.B. Kings in NYC and sharing a stage with Nils Lofgren just to name a few.
PROMISED LAND is a must see for any fan of the great Jersey Shore sound!!!

Big Ray and The Kool Kats sprang to musical life in 1996 when Ray Caddell, longtime professional musician, and veteran of tours and performances (from Frank Sinatra to Gladys Knight to The Temptations) was driving down the road listening to the University of Virginia college radio station and heard a tune from a band with a different, horn-driven sound that somehow seemed to combine rock, Motown and Big Band music. He called the station, found out the band’s name, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, got a copy of the cd from the station, and wore it out on his car’s cd player.
Ray’s current project at that time, The Ray Caddell Swing Orchestra, was working sometimes a couple of times a month playing traditional big band swing music with some of the best musicians in town. Rehearsals were sometimes more fun than the gigs, playing through the great repertoire of the ’30s and ’40s, but there really wasn’t a lot of work for a traditional big band, and challenges like stage size and budgets made it difficult to work as much as he liked. After many years of 6 nights a week, a few nights here and there just wasn’t the same.

Wesley Williams has loved animals from a very young age! His mom even says he wanted to purchase a full-on petting zoo at just five years old. It was always something new she proclaimed. One month all he wanted was a potbelly pig, the next month a miniature pony, the next month a flock of chickens, you name the animal, and Wesley wanted it. Although he has always had a passion for working with animals, Wesley pursued his unique unicycle skills at an early age, but always kept that dream of working with furry friends in the back of his mind. Just two years into forming his livelong goal of an animal act Wesley has burst onto the scene with his "Puppy Pals," an all-new comedic stunt dog show!
