"TarantinosNYC at Don Hill's"

Aloha Katz & Kittens

I had a chance to catch a surf band this weekend called the TarantinosNYC (,www.tarantinosnyc.com) an off-shoot of the band After One and members of NESMA (www.nesmasurf.org). They kicked it a multi band event at Don Hills in lower Manhattan. It was my first time seeing the TarantinosNYC and Don Hills (www.donhills.com/).

I arrived early enough to able to catch the opening punk band, Jersey Mayhem, in the multi-band line up. The club was full, I'd say 50 people minimum, but more were added before the TarantinosNYC took the stage at 9:45 pm. As the opening band was a young punk band the average age of the patron was about 21-25 yrs. old. And these kids loved the TarantinosNYC.

The TarantinosNYC are a high intensity band with a sensual sound that got the audience grooving on the dance floor before the end of the first tune. They opened with the little known Bullwinkle before shoving the set into 5th gear with the classic Out of Limits. Brian Tarantino put down his rhythm git and picked up the keyboard for some haunting harmonies in Out of Limits. But nothing could have prepared me for the they way they blasted out the Los Straightjackets Rockula. They did play one original, Fistful of Reverb, a spaghetti western with tango beat. I anxiously await more originals after getting just a small appe-teaser like this one.

And when was the last time any of you had the pleasure of taking part in a mosh pit?? Well you should have been at the show on Saturday because when the TarantinosNYC broke into Misirlou thats what broke out in front of the stage. And speaking of breaking, as the band closed with the Theme from the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, several patrons decided to break dance on the dance floor in front of the band.

Aloha, mahalo

Yes, Tarantino music is it's own genre. Ask the many ad execs who pick up on the latest songs from Tarantino movies. There are great songs that have singing in them too, but we don't do those.

We specialize in the great crossfade between 60's-70's Surf, Soul, Spy and Spaghetti Western that makes 90's gangsters somehow more hip, samurai more seductive and horror films more hilarious.

We were Ennio, Booker T, Mancini and Dick Dale fans long before we saw any Tarantino Movies, but there's something about what's moving on the film during these songs that makes them really swing.

The members of this band have been in many other NYC area bands and have tons of experience playing venues large and small, indoor and outdoor, such as: Southstreet Seaport, the Intrepid, NYC Marathon, CBGB's, The Lonestar Roadhouse, Continental, BItter End, Manny's Car Wash, Village Gate, Le Bar Bat and the World's Fair!

We have been on many internet radio shows including Genya Raven's "Underground Garage" show doing the cover songs, "Out of Limits" and "Bullwinkle Part 2".
