Hazmat Modine

One of New York’s most original bands, HAZMAT MODINE delivers a rustic, deliriously Dionysian blend of whorehouse Blues, Reggae, Klezmer, Country and Gypsy-tinged music. The band features the dueling harmonicas of front-man Wade Schuman and his sparring partner Randy Weinstein, funky tuba powerhouse Joseph Daly, virtuoso guitarists Bob Jay, Jon Sholle, and Dan Hovey, and drummer Scott Veenstra. HAZMAT holds down a smoldering groove behind Schuman’s raspy, bluesy voice and passionately energetic stage presence.

Deja Vu

There is more than one artist with this name: 1) Without a doubt, one of Almighty’s biggest acts, with a string of club smashes to their credit, is Deja Vu Featuring Tasmin. The band who’ve been together for less than two years have already scored four Pop-Tip top 20 hits and have recently, rather fantastically, enjoyed their first American single in the US Billboard Top 75! DJs and clubbers first heard Tasmin’s strong yet emotive vocal with the release of their first single...

Infectious Grooves

Infectious Grooves (n., in-fek-shus groovz) are a funk metal band led by Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir. It also featured ex-Suicidal Tendencies, now Metallica, bassist Robert Trujillo, and ex-Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins. Though Muir's sense of humor was often obvious with Suicidal Tendencies, Infectious Grooves often brought out a goofier type of humor: their albums contain comedy skits by a reptilian lover named Sarsippius. The band can be seen (and heard) performing as the prom band in the 1992 Pauly Shore film Encino Man
