The New York based powerhouse rockers in Midnight Mob have staked their claim in their melting pot of rock n roll. Raspy-voiced chanteuse Blackey Deathproof, guitarist Mickey Squeeze, bassist Carly Quinn, and drummer Beatz flawlessly blend classic rock influences with modern day inspirations to create something beautifully restless.
The band has evolved tremendously since forming in 2009, but the focus has never shifted: Midnight Mob is destined to bridge the gap between genres and create something without fear of limitation. As Mickey says, “We play what we dig and people seem to dig what we play. We get the punk crowd, the metal crowd, the classic rock crowd – even people who aren’t really into hard rock relate to us on some level.” Having already impressed the likes of Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan with their live performance at the CBGB Music Festival opening for Janes Addiction in Times Square, Midnight Mob is set to turn heads one stage at a time.
To date, the Mob has released three EPs – 2016’s Honest Brutal Glorious, 2013’s Black Moon Rising, 2011’s self-titled debut – in addition to 2014’s full-length album These Days. The band’s uniquely vivacious sound has garnered a wide variety of placements including WWE Smackdown, MLB, PGA, Food Network, Shamless and many others as well as a legion of incredibly loyal fans.
The new EP, Honest Brutal GLorious, ignited their fan base and the music industry. In the Summer of 2016 Midnight Mob exploded all over the US playing some of the biggest stages at some of the most high profile festivals such as Summerfest (WI), Sturgis Buffalo Chip (SD), Rock N Derby (NY), Fashion Meets Music Festival (OH) and Great South Bay Music Festival (NY). During this festival run Midnight Mob opened for Shinedown, 3 Doors Down, Kid Rock, Skillet, Sevendust, Coheed & Cambria, Ghost, Trivium, Third Eye Blind and Passion Pit.
Midnight Mob is coming full steam ahead in 2017 with new music, continued festival appearances and tour dates all over the US.
Midnight Mob’s music has been heard on TV shows such as WWE Smackdown; Nitro Circus; Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives, Restaurant Impossible, PGA Golf, MLB 2014, Shamless and many others.
