Nasty Rock N' Roll from New York NY

While attending boarding school in New England, Oliver Myles Mashburn (vocals/guitar), Will Rockefeller (guitar), and Michael Glendening (bass/guitar/keys) informally formed the French pop group The Young DeVotchkas with singer Hugo Jardin. Re-branding themselves after Hugo's departure, the band's true sound and vision were realized in the adoption of a snarling new moniker - Swanky Tiger.

Influenced by acts such as Iggy Pop, Queens Of The Stone Age, The Strokes, Guns N' Roses, and The Rolling Stones, they recorded their debut album, EMPIRES, at their own Dead Bee Studios in upstate New York. The album was then mixed and mastered by Joe Colmenero (Lana Del Rey, Wu-Tang Clan, Philip Glass) and Tony Gillis (Iggy Pop, Prince, Jay -Z), respectively, at The Cutting Room Studios in NYC. Upon its release in the winter of 2015, EMPIRES garnered accolades from PopMatters, Pancakes & Whiskey, and InYourSpeakersMedia, among others.

Through performances at some of NYC’s most iconic venues, including The Studio at Webster Hall, The Bowery Electric, Saint Vitus, The Bitter End, and showcases at the CMJ Music Marathon (2015) and Northside Festival (2016), Swanky Tiger have been establishing themselves as an explosive and thoroughly enjoyable live presence on the New York rock and roll scene.

Rock from Birmingham AL
Chris Simmons Band
Chris Simmons Band
Rock N Roll, Southern Soul, and Electric Blues from North Alabama

You want real American music.
American Rock n Roll, slow-smoked with Blues
and Soul, was born and nurtured in the South.
Chris Simmons and his band grew up and out of that heritage in North Alabama.

Songs and music, all from the heart...
Serviced with Dynamic Drivin' drums(Mikey D Williams),
Booming Velvet bass (Brad Baker),
Sweet Stingin' guitar pickin' and slidin' ...and Soul Singin' harmonies.
No new fangled electronic tricks here.

"You don't just hear it, it comes in through your soul."
There's power in the blood from this trio of homegrown southern gentlemen.
No certain style or rules..
you just know it's ROCK N ROLL and it's good music that means something
...and you know it because you can feel it.

The Chris Simmons Band is real music for real folks. So if you ain't real...
This ain't for you... Just stand back and try to move away slowly.
