Tri-State Conspiracy

''Great music and showmanship!''

''Very cool''
-Lee Rocker of The Stray Cats

Tri-State Conspiracy is a "psycho swing" and ska band based in New York City. Their sound is derived from the Brian Setzer Orchestra era of neo swing combined with the driving punk rock aesthetics of such bands as The Ramones and The Misfits....with plenty of ska and rockabilly thrown in for good measure. Their song lyrics address such subject matter as murder, revenge, zombies, and mental illness. With 4 horn players, 2 guitarists, bass, drums, and a lead singer with a penchant for vintage suits, they have become a staple of the NYC ska scene for over a decade and have also been known to cross over into the rockabilly scene on occaision. They have had the pleasure of performing with such bands as Fishbone, The Cherry Poppin Daddies, The Squirrel Nut Zippers, The English Beat, The Slackers, and World Inferno Friendship Society, to name drop a few. Whether you are an angst ridden teenager, tatooed scenester, hipster, or barroom drunk.....Tri-State Conspiracy is guaranteed to have you dancing by the end of the night, or your money back!
