Jeremy & the Harlequins

Rock is far from meeting its end and Jeremy & The Harlequins prove it with their old school throwbacks and new school energy. Keeping the genre alive and well is no small task, but the band ( which is only a few years old ) has managed to revive a vintage era rock that never leans on cheap gimmicks and instead punches through with solid songwriting and a whole lot of character. The band’s birthplace of NYC certainly has a part to play. On its influence the band says, “Everyone is hustling, so the music has to hustle, too. We don’t have time to jam out. New York is loud and fast, and it gets your attention instantly. New York is a 3 minute rock ‘n’ roll tune you’ll find on the ‘best of’ album.”

For a perfect New York day they suggest:

Get a bagel and lox at Russ & Daughters, do a tour at the tenement museum, head over to Williamsburg and shop for vintage clothing and records, eat Polish food in Greenpoint, head back into Manhattan and explore the castle at Central Park, get a mocha at Rex, definitely eat pizza, head to the Comedy Cellar and laugh your ass off for $10, get a drink somewhere, anywhere.”

Russian Vodka Room

St. Paul’s Chapel
"Old chapel that George Washington actually went to when in New York. It's filled with Masonic and gnostic art. The cemetery attached is incredible. Also, many people took shelter here during 9/11. Incredibly, the small chapel survived." — Jeremy & the Harlequins
