Biography

The New Rags are a New York based duo that combines Pop, Rock and Ragtime. Their perfomances, complete with concise pop songs, hooks and instrumental interludes, show off their influences which range from Scott Joplin to Ben Folds, 60s pop to the aggressive piano playing of Jerry Lee Lewis. The New Rags are loud and hard rocking, yet have shunned the typical guitar-based stereotype of a good rock band.
