“The Reciprocal Boogie” The New Motif’s debut album was recorded at Iron Wax Studios with Producer and Soulive drummer Alan Evans during the fall of 2018 and released January 26, 2019
The New Motif is:
Cory Schechtman: Keys/ Saxophone
Dennis Angelo Christiano: Guitar/ Vocals
Dan Kelly: Bass/ Vocals
Sean Ball: Drums/ Vocals
An eclectic jam/funk band, infusing deep psychedelic grooves with improvisational techniques. The ambitiously crafted keyboard mastery, expressive saxophone and immaculate guitar shredding meld into a dynamic fusion. Their intricate funky bass and drums render addictive grooves binding band and crowd creating the “reciprocal boogie.” Live performances of their extensive original repertoire spawn multifaceted jams and memorable moments.
The Quins are not afraid to embrace their roots in classic rock, blues, punk, and soul in a way that doesn’t feel overdone and fits into a contemporary market that spans multiple genres. Their live shows reach a level of energy that engages the crowd, brings them closer together and shows the younger generation that guitars are still cool. Existing in the vein of their heroes Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Queen, Grateful Dead, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix and The Eagles, The Quins should've been born in 1942 like the rock legends of old. They are not intimidated by the modern times, however and embrace the fact that they stand alone and are willing to fight to the death for what Rock and Roll truly is: unapologetic, raw, and real.
They have released two full length LP's and a single in the last 4 years and have been constantly gigging all over New England, steadily making a name for themselves in the rock and festival scenes. They have shared bills with the likes of Stephen Marley, Slightly Stoopid, Samantha Fish and Lake Street Dive.
Since the release of their sophomore LP, “Beech Hill”, in December of 2017, The Quins have received attention in the press and were nominated for the 2018 New England Music Award for Best Rock Act. They've been invited to perform at high profile festivals such as the Levitate Music and Arts Festival and the Boston Freedom Rally. They are currently in the studio working on their third full length album.
