Local bands are competing against one another on social media for a chance to play at Nikon Jones Beach Theater this summer. Pulse Insider is catching up with the 19 bands competing to help you decide which one to vote for.
Pulse Insider: How did you get your start in music?
The Brady Brothers:We got our start in music at birth! We have been playing music for as long as we can remember. Our father has been a huge influence on us, he is a musician as well, so music has always been present in our home.
Pulse Insider: How would you describe your music to someone you just met:
The Brady Brothers: Our music is kind of hard to describe! Currently we tell people that we make acoustic pop! We take a lot of influence from Bruno Mars, Jason Marz and walk off the earth! So our music is like a mix of those guys with some Bieber mixed in!
Pulse Insider: Tell us your hometown, where you live now and whatever biographical details you’d like to share:
The Brady Brothers: When we aren’t playing music we love playing soccer and hanging with friends!
Although we are twins we couldn’t be more different individuals which is a great thing because it helps diversify our music.
All the bands in Digital Battle of the Bands entered the contest by submitting a not more than 20 second video to the Fit for Fame Facebook app and from now until June 27 anyone can vote for a band’s video on the app. The band that receives the most votes will get to perform at Retro Fitness’s branded Side Stage at Nikon Jones Beach Theater on Aug. 13, 2014.
CEO of Retro Fitness, Eric Casaburi is very excited for the competition.
“Music is the fuel behind fitness,” Casaburi said. “We are holding this competition to help showcase the bands in the local community, because we know there is a ton of musical talent in Long Island. I love listening to live music.
