Garden State Social Club, The Mighty Fine

July 9, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Free, live music at the Riis Park Bazaar!

GARDEN STATE SOCIAL CLUB features a real cosa nostra of Jersey natives who made it big in New York City – this is an orgiastic throwdown of sweaty R&B, crotch grinding slow dances, and off-the-hook rock’n’roll.
Fronted by the biggest voice in New York City, the fabulous Lynne Von Pang, who the Village Voice has described as “a bray of life…this is how rock n roll existed in prehistoric times, before recording technology…A singer who sinks her teeth, and soul, into a performance.”
She’s joined by a rogue’s gallery of muscle who have played in New York’s finest garage and punk rock bands over the years, including the Devil Dogs, the Raunch Hands, the Swinging Neckbreakers, and more – plus the heaving breasts and sultry tones of background singing divas the Bada Bings! This is a big sound with a big beat, a wild mash up of Laverne Baker, James Brown, Etta James, Tina Turner plus a handful of Dirty Jersey originals! This is a pure good time party band ya’ll are gonna dig the most! VEGAS QUALITY, BABY!
“No need for introductions we’ve known each other for years. You’re not staring at a dead man six shots is what got me here”. The opening lines from the song “Hello”(the band’s debut single) couldn’t be more spot on. After touring most of the world with The Afghan Whigs Singer Steve Myers returned home only to get shot and left for dead on a rainy New Orleans street (). Myers moved to New York to recover and try to put his past behind him only joining the Dulli lead Twilight Singers occasionally for shows on the East Coast or recording down South. Not until hooking up with fellow New Orleanian Jagon Eldridge in late 2003 did he think about starting a band of his own. The original line up for Mighty Fine consist of Jagon Eldrige and Richie Pomerantz( Andy G & The Roller Kings), Mitro Valsamis( Trickbaby’s) and Paul Verciglio.
For the last 10 years Mighty Fine has rocked all over New York state, sharing the stage with bands TV On The Radio, Andre Williams, The Dirtbombs, The Slackers, Titus Andronicus, The Gories, Mary Weiss and The Afghan Whigs.
After releasing the album “ Get Up To Get Down” on Drugfront Records in late 2011 that included the singles Ready to Roar featuring Greg Dulli, Black Train & Something For Your Ass featuring Mick Collins the band went thru several lineup changes including a UK tour lineup that included Collins on guitar.
After taking some time to regroup Mighty Fine is back to what it does best, playing punk/soul all over NY state now with new member’s Bradley Dean (The Visitors) on guitar and Mickey Finn (Boss Hog) on Keys.
Sweaty Rump Shakin’ Punk Soul is a great way to describe the band, the combination of a James Brown styled soul review and sweaty punk rock show. “In this band, New York and New Orleans meet at the crossroads and no one moves an inch.” – Myers
