Bio

The 21st Century has given way to a fresh, invigorating sound in music. Yarmy’s Army’s innovative groove has emerged from the beating heart of the Flat Iron district to create a scene all of their own. Their sound combines elements of funk, folk, blues and rock creating a magnetic vibe reminiscent of the seventies.

The original vision of the band began during impromptu jam sessions at New Orleans's Jazz Fest combined with acoustic shows in the basements of some of the most infamous bars in New York City and has since emerged into a sought after rock band playing in notable venues around town. Shortly after guitarist Richie Chuang entered the scene playing open mics around the city, drummer Jeff Epstein and vocalist Dan Levine jumped into the mix and the threesome began playing acoustic gigs at small venues around town. With the addition of bassist Chris Yarmy, the music quickly progressed from the poetic, lyrical, quality found in original blues music to a rhythmic, blues rock edge with the energy of a jam band that it is today.

Influenced by music legends such as Pink Floyd, Warren Haynes, and The Black Crowes, Yarmy’s Army has found a way to take the sounds of classic inspired rock and transform them into an original combination of rock, jam and a little bit of funk with a lyrical genius that evokes a sentiment indicative to the emotional times we live in today.

In addition to playing gigs around the city, Yarmy’s Army also has a propensity to give back. Recent charitable fundraisers include raising money for cancer research at a fundraiser at the Makor and helping to raise money for Keep a Child Alive fundraiser at Galapagos in Brooklyn.

Since its inception, Yarmy’s Army has been successfully feeding its unique sound to venues throughout New York City and the tri-state area including the Lion’s Den/Sullivan Street Theater , Village Underground, Ace of Clubs, Tobacco Road, The Knitting Factory, CBGB’s and The Delancey, among others.
