Conjuring the spirits of Americana and roots rock n’ roll, the Alex Newman Band exemplifies in sounds that seem immediately familiar but unique. For the past two years, the band has held center stage across NYC’s vast music scene. Drawing crowds in for high energy performances has led the Alex Newman Band to become a main stay at venues such as The Living Room, The National Underground and Tammany Hall.

The Alex Newman Band is Alex Newman (acoustic guitar/vocals), Tony DePiano (electric guitar/mandolin), Tyler Erickson (drums) and Val Celentano (electric bass). After first meeting in 2010, Alex Newman and Tony DePiano formed a lifetime friendship and a desire to create songs that are immediately identifiable, heartfelt, yet still distinctive in melody and style. Early in 2011 the duo spent considerable time finding the right band members to round out the sound. Bringing on board veteran drummer Tyler Erickson and international bassist Val Celentano has created a powerful sound that echoes Ray Lamontagne, Mumford and Sons, and Ryan Adams.

Attending an Alex Newman Band show is like an all out jamboree. With fans joining in on the chorus, stomping feet and sharing in the overall contagious energy that defines the band’s spirit.

Currently the band has just released their first LP’ entitled Man of Simple Needs. Building on the success of the past two years the band is eagerly anticipating the release with shows across the New York and New England areas. Come join in on the jamboree and catch a glimpse of NYC’s vast growing rock band!
