Deli Magazine's Best Emerging Indie Rock Band of 2011


The Deli Magazine picked Hurrah! A Bolt of Light! as the Best Indie Rock Band in NYC for 2011. Here’s what they had to say about us: “Wil Farr doesn’t take long to drown himself in sweat. Spun from the same cloth as Bruce Springsteen or Ian Curtis, he routinely leads his homespun band to a blaze of glory, forcing his restless spirit and barbed hooks through anyone looking for a dose of excitement. Hurrah! builds each track of their heartland-brewed, rocking yet rootsy tunes to a frenzy, making believers of anyone looking for a rush of adrenaline chased down with a shot of big band frenzy.”
Now its up to you guys to help us win overall Best of NYC Emerging Bands.  All you have to do is click here and vote for us.  They don’t require your email or any other personal info and it only takes two seconds.  The winner gets featured on the cover of the next print issue of the Deli.  Please help us out by voting!!!!

QRO Magazine reviews a live show by Hurrah! A Bolt of Light!



“The opening act, Hurrah! A Bolt of Light! electrified the start of the night. Their music sounded something like Joe Cocker or Bruce Springsteen & The Easy Street Band (QRO live review), very charged and exciting. It’d be difficult to stand motionless during one of their sets unless you are in a body cast. The singer has the wide-eyed intense glare of PIL’s John Lydon (QRO live review – and if you said Hurrah’s frontman was his son, I’d believe you), an intense stare and focus similar to Ian Curtis. Watching him and his female co-singer was like watching Johnny Cash and June Carter having as much fun entertaining themselves as their audience. The crowd was not shy to embrace the spirit of excitement either.”

Beat video by IceRocks of DXA

Check out this video featuring IceRocks of DXA.   Here he shows you how he uses the SP-1200 and MPC 3000 to make some beats.  The first beat using the SP-1200 features me on bass (first heard at about the 1:28 mark).



Here's the second video by IceRocks this time on the MPC 3000.  (I'm first heard around the 2:48 mark)
