"Hometown Heroes & Degenerates" (LP, Forthcoming)

"Formed in late 2009, Rockin' is this band's #1 goal, and their Guitar, Trumpet and Bass driven sound will make your foot want to tap right out of your shoe! Swingin' with Not Quite Punk is a style all it's own, influenced by greats such as: Django Reinhardt, Sublime, Stray Cats, Mad Sin, Rancid, Mad Caddies and more. The reminiscent yet unique and new sound of N.Q.P. is a mixture of Brian's swing & rockabilly influence, Paz's ska and jazz trumpet, Reese's shredding guitar solos and jazzy progressions, Troy's smooth bass lines, and Myles' booming swingin' drums. It is a sound that appeals to audiences of all ages.

After a little more than one year, Not Quite Punk slayed 70+ gigs in the Northwestern U.S. during 2010 expanding their fan-base through Washington, Idaho and Montana, and is now expecting release of their first studio album titled: “Hometown Heroes & Degenerates” due May 1st 2011. A very busy year has had them playing months of back-to-back shows, sold-out shows, and playing for big audiences including: Missoula Hempfest, 3 live on-air hour long sets on one of the nation's top AAA FM radio stations, Schweitzer Mountain Resort, Relay For Life, and Sandpoint City Beach Music Festival and many more. N.Q.P. has recently launched a new website, is currently working on a new music video and preparing for a Cd Release Tour in summer 2011."
