The Enemy Concept
Posted by Rich on Oct 15, 2011 in Bands

The Enemy Concept came together in early 2009 when long time associates Tony Volpe and Ollie Twist decided to put together a group for the sole purpose of bringing live alternative hip-hop to their local music scene. Bassist Dan Pilver and drummer JL Claybourne round out the group’s rhythm section to provide the most live, rocking, funky, hip-hopping show youve EVER seen.

Quickly gaining notoriety among friends for their impeccable live performances, catchy tracks, and throwback covers, The Enemy Concept stand poised to take over the greater New England music scene and beyond.

The Enemy Concept’s sound is not derived from any single source, but more of an amalgamation of musical backgrounds and influences. Put into words, the sound of The Enemy Concept might be said to have the ‘edge’ of Rage Against the Machine, while still maintaining the sweet soul of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Songs such as “Grain of Salt,” “World on Fire,” and “Bombsquad” may be a perfect example of TEC’s ability to blend a grooving rhythm with an intense, uplifting, and impossibly sweet chorus that’s not so much Hip-Hop as it is Pop/Rock. On the flip side, songs such as “Until Theyre Gone,” “Chillin,” and “Pressure Points” showcase their ability to Hip-Hop like no other, grooving in a manner that illicits uncanny thoughts of your favorite rappers’ hottest tracks. In addition to funky pop/rock tracks such as “Jungle Funk” and Bird’s Eye View,” The Enemy Concept’s choice of cover songs vary among all walks of Hip-Hop. From Nas to Jay-Z, Del to Rage Against the Machine, TEC’s got you covered.

The Enemy Concept pictures themselves as an ALT ROCK/HIP-HOP group. Doesnt matter the setting, TEC rocks everyone, everywhere they go, all the time.

In this year of 2011, The Enemy Concept has alot to look forward to: NEW MEMBER Jeff Parker joins the ranks on keys/synth, adding that extra element they’ve needed to fill out the ‘Concept’ Sound! See him onstage at any TEC show this summer! Outward expansion: already consistently rocking their favorite local clubs (The Main Pub, Manchester/ Up Or On The Rocks, Hartford/ AllStars, Manchester/ Sully’s Pub, Hartford) TEC is looking forward to bringing their original ALT ROCK/HIP-HOP sound to stages outside of Hartford, and outside of CT!

Guide to the Best Local Bands In Connecticut

Connecticut’s local music scene is an eclectic mix of every genre you can think of, and probably quite a few you have never heard of, until now. If you’re looking to hear some great original music you don’t need to head to Boston or NYC, there are plenty of amazing bands right here in Connecticut.

The McLovins
Don’t let their ages fool you; The McLovins know how to jam. Named after the character in the movie Superbad, they burst onto the scene thanks to a YouTube video of live performance of Phish’s You Enjoy Myself. A technically challenging piece for any mature musician, the then 15 year olds pulled it off sounding like seasoned pros. This led to gigs ranging from shows at Hartford’s Black Eyed Sally’s to high profile shows like The Nateva Music Festival in Oxford, ME and The Gathering Of The Vibes Music Festival in Bridgeport, CT. The band has even been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine. Not bad for high school students.

Columbia Fields
Indie rockers Columbia Fields have been a Connecticut favorite for years. They’ve been voted Best Indie Band for the last three years in The Hartford Advocate. Currently working on their third album, Columbia Fields has graced the stage of almost every major venue in Connecticut. Last year the band won a contest to open for Bon Jovi at Mohegan Sun.

Kung Fu
Something of a Connecticut super-group, Kung Fu is an improvisational jazz/funk/fusion/rock band comprised of former members of The Breakfast, Deep Banana Blackout and Jazz Is Dead. The combined talent of this band is something that you need to see to believe. The lightning fast guitar solos of Tim Palmieri mix seamlessly with the bombastic horns and percussion. his is a band that will simultaneously have you dancing and scratching your head.

The Enemy Concept
An alternative hip-hop band, these guys mix elements of rock, funk, metal and hip-hop to create something both artistic and moving. The band’s lyricist Ollie Twist sounds like the love child of Everlast and Zack de la Rocha. Based out of Manchester, CT the group has blown up stages from The Main Pub in Manchester to Sully’s in Hartford.

Mambo Sons
This blues/rock trio has been playing in Connecticut for well over a decade. They’ve released four albums since 1999 and have played shows all over the Northeast and even in the UK. They’ve shared the stage with big name acts like Steppenwolf, The Black Crowes and The Allman Brothers. Showing no signs of slowing down they’re spending the summer of 2011 playing festivals throughout Connecticut.
