"New York City songstress and her band walk on the wild side"

New York City songstress and her band walk on the wild side

The New York City rock diva known simply as “K” likes to let loose.
How much so? Just ask her bandmates, Prayon (guitar), Omri (drums) and Murph (bass).

“She’s wild in everyday life, and she’s wild on stage. That’s why I’m doing this interview,” Prayon said by telephone. “You can’t predict what she’s going to do next. We played a show last week and she was hanging from the ceiling – we were afraid it was going to cave in and she was going to fall. I’m not trying to sell her. She’s explosive, like TNT.”

K’s onstage antics have drawn comparisons to Courtney Love, Jim Morrison and Iggy Pop. The music she creates with the band, however, is a unique melding of Latin-style drums, funky bass, rock guitar and catchy vocal melodies. They will perform a free show tonight at Dogfish Head in Rehoboth after a 10 p.m. opening set by the Metrosexuals.

“Our drummer is a house producer,” Prayon said. “He loves house music, so a lot of our beats come out like that. He specializes in tribal house, which is very Latin-infused.”

Prayon also has produced dance records and has had success in the hip-hop arena. But he and Omri enjoy rocking out with K and the Boys. “We all have different influences,” he said. “K has strange tastes. She likes Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin and then old Madonna and Michael Jackson records. The one band we all love is the [Red Hot] Chili Peppers.”

K and the Boys recently signed a contract with Philadelphia-based manager Brad Reubens, who negotiated a national record deal for hard-rock group Silvertide.

Bio

K and the Boys are led by the energetic, sexy, edgy, and unpredictable K. The band’s music combines pop hooks with dirty dance beats, deep funky basslines, and new wave guitars, delivered in a ferocious high-energy style drenched
in sweat.
K and the Boys sound like Sonic Youth meets Madonna, and get their inspiration
from a late seventies and early eighties culture clash of artists ranging from
Blondie, The Clash, Bowie, Bush Tetras and ESG, to Chic and Donna Summer.
The band’s exciting live show, featuring K’s startling and burlesque-influenced
stage performance, has garnered a significant following in 2004. K and the Boys
are now well-established as one of the leading bands in the new wave of
Dance/Rock acts in NYC.
In 2005 K and the Boys are releasing their first EP, “Don’t Waste Time” on the
band’s own Voluxuous Records.
The EP was produced by the band’s guitarist Prayon and drummer Omri.
Prayon has been producing Hip Hop for several years with releases on labels
such as EMI, BMG, and various indies. Omri, a veteran House music producer,
has enjoyed Billboard Club Chart success with productions and remixes for such
Dance labels as Tommy Boy, Twisted, Jellybean and Star 69, among others.
Having made their reputation in other genres, Prayon and Omri nevertheless
share a passion for Rock & Roll. By joining forces with singer/songwriter K and
bassist Murph, they formed the foundation to an otherwise eclectic and
electrifying musical style.
