Dateline, December 30, 1942

The BobbySoxers came out in droves to the Paramount Theatre that night in ’42, hoping for a glimpse of a skinny, upcoming crooner named Frank Sinatra.

The Beatles, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley...Times Square has a long and storied history hosting musical legend.

Last night it was StereoCrowd’s turn, broadcast from the NASDAQ, musical guest on the AllNightwithJoeyRenolds Show.

“StereoCrowd was incubated on the rooftops of South Harlem. With its undeniable stage presence and renowned nurturing of audience participation, it has quickly created a diverse and loyal following.”

“Becoming known as New York City’s Ambassadors of Urban Alternative, Stereo Crowd’s sound is a Black Eyed Peas style hip-hop combined with the soul of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, all packaged together within the amped up angst of indie rock.”

I’ve been out to hear them play live at the People’s Lounge,

And at BarNINE,
And even a killer, rooftop gig last Summer in Bushwick.

It’s been fun watching this “sick talented line-up” of diverse musicians gather momentum and burst out on the New York indie, music scene.

The show is airing on NBC New York Non-Stop this Monday night, March 28th at 11:59pm. Find your channel below:

If you haven’t heard of them yet, you will. 
Remember, nobody had ever heard of that skinny kid from Hoboken this early in his career, either.
