This Criminal Soul
Formed in 2013 by guitarist/songwriter/playwright Christoph Whitbeck, This Criminal Soul (New Haven, CT) is a rock and roll band. Their high-energy live show runs the gamut from wall-of-sound rock jams to speakeasy swing dancing rhythms to acoustic ballads showcasing intricate lyrics. You can find them performing original material (most notably Whitbeck's rock opera, The Devil Plays Poker) in the New Haven area.
eality Bomb are a modern rock quintet from New Haven in Connecticut. The band formed around the nucleus of guitarist/songwriter Joe Pugh, bassist/songwriter Joe Soucy and drummer, Phil DiMarco in the Spring of 2010, combining their love for 1970's punk, blues based rock and roll and psychedelic acid rock. The line up expanded in late 2011 with the addition of guitarist/keyboardist Toan Nguyen-Dinh. Reality Bomb performed sporadically throughout New Haven and Fairfield in 2013 and 2014, all the while writing and creating new songs almost weekly. In late 2014, Reality Bomb added yet another crucial member to the band, guitarist/songwriter Bob Brown, which completed the sound. With the dueling and interwoven guitars of Bob and Joe leading the way and the earth shattering, the sonic backwash of Toan's finger style guitar playing and the unstoppable. earth moving rhythm section of Phil and Soucy, Reality Bomb have crafted a sound that is all their own.
