Swanky Tiger

Restrictions: 21 & over

BIO: Swanky Tiger are a Brooklyn based band specializing in sharp rock n’ roll songs that fuse infectious pop hooks with snarling, aggressive electric guitars. Formed in 2014, Swanky Tiger have established themselves as an explosive live act through performances at key NYC venues, such as: The Studio at Webster Hall, The Bowery Electric, Saint Vitus, Mercury Lounge, Knitting Factory Brooklyn, the 2015 CMJ Music Marathon, the 2016 Northside Festival, the 2017 Seaport Summer Stage, and a sold-out night at The Gramercy Theatre in 2018. In the summer of 2017, the band embarked on a tour of the Southern U.S. in support of their latest EP, Mechanical Nightmares, and are currently working on their second full length album in NYC while performing select dates throughout the northeastern US. PRESS QUOTES: “Swanky Tiger has molded a sound that is uniquely theirs – taking all of the influences and sounds and creating their own diverse music. Swanky Tiger emanates New York City rock n’ roll swagger.” — Karen Silva, The Huffington Post “Its as easy to imagine Swanky Tiger playing a house show as it is to imagine them playing on some big festival stage, a trait they share with only a few established bands (Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, and The Orwells for example).” — Liam Hart, InYourSpeakersMedia “One line in the tune “Glamorous” sounds a little like foreshadowing for this up-and-coming band: ‘If its fame you want, go and take it now.’ By the sound of this track, and indeed the LP as a whole, Swanky Tiger is poising itself to do just that.” — Brice Ezell, PopMatters “The group has found a fine balance between overdrive power and softer undertones with their songwriting. Its that balance of dynamics that bounce back and forth all throughout that gives [the album] a warmer, rather than raunchy, rock sound.” — Tommy Shackleford, Pancakes & Whiskey
