(March 6, 2017) – On Monday, March 20, the community is invited to celebrate The Mod Squad NYC’s CD release party at Quinn’s in Beacon. Beacon is the official home of the making of the band’s debut record – recorded at Cassandra Studios.
During their last appearance at Quinn’s this band completely destroyed any conception of what had been thought of the style of music Nioka and crew were currently focusing on. Elements and ingredients of all types/genres of music reaching back through the span of art and history created something so multi-lingual and expressive that it could only be related through the beauty of the shared experience of the music they perform. Eminating influences from the Baroque to the Folk and everything outside and in between, this concoction has been described as highly enjoyable and certainly not to be missed.
