Team Spirit
Ayad Al Adhamy looked over at his guitar collecting dust in the corner and decided that he had had enough. He picked it up, fell back in love and Team Spirit was born.

Needing a band, he got in touch with his old shred-metal college roommate Roman Tobias Pettigrew (who had spent the last few years in Los Angeles starting a cult) and recruited Cosmo Kilburn Di Giulio after finding and nearly losing him after a night’s drinking in a country music bar. The line-up is rounded off by ball-kickin’ drummer Mike Addesso.

Bursting with soulpower, Team Spirit’s music is a cocktail of Motown basslines, Thin Lizzy-esque duelling guitars, 90’s sing-along hooks, Glam beats and Chuck Berry feet.

Do you like to rock? Do you like to move your body and shake those hips of yours? Exactly.

So then, friend, get out the drinks, light your cigarette, lace up your boots and turn it up to eleven! Prepare yourself for the new mavericks of Rock n’ Roll: Team Spirit.

The Sanctuaries
NYC's the Sanctuaries, recently rebooted, is the continuation of bandleader David Stern's singular vision. Rounded out by drummer-luminary Tim McCoy (Darwin Deez, Ski Lodge), bass virtuoso Will Salwen, and avant-jazz organist/keys player Wade Ridenhour, the outfit delivers a fitting musical hybrid that consists of psych, punk, power-pop, shoegaze, folk, and utter noise.
