Deal Casino
Deal Casino is a rock n' roll band from Asbury Park, New Jersey. After self-releasing three EP's, lead singer/guitarist JoeP, bassist Jon Rodney, and keys/guitarist Jozii Cowell joined up with drummer Christopher Donofrio in 2015 to begin work on their debut full length LP to be released in 2016.
Dollys
Dollys is a four-piece indie pop, pizza-eating machine whose gears spin to the sounds of sparkly guitars, poppy harmonies, and groovy rhythms. The members find themselves enjoying the wonderful New Jersey daylight inside basements, working on arrangements, finding sounds, and exploring stories that act as a germ for bringing color to people's eyes and ears. They hope their tunes will stir the bubbly tomato sauce of people's emotions and pizza alike, and they are always looking for a new place to see and share their music.

Zen Marino
Zen Marino was formed in Spring of 2015 by Chase Obrecht and Kevin McCarthy at Elon University. Having both wanted to start a band since they arrived at school and excited to have found another musician with similar taste, the two were eager to get started. They wrote the song “Birdcage” their first time ever jamming together, showing promise that the project had potential. Chase and Kevin were joined by their friend Nick Zimmerman on bass and spent the Spring writing songs for their debut EP. Drawing influence from bands such as CHON and Algernon Cadwallader, the then nameless Zen Marino started to form their own punchy and melodic style of upbeat indie rock they would eventually refer to as “noodle punk”.
Although in their respective home states for the summer, Kevin and Chase continued to bounce ideas off each other. Upon their return to school Fall of 2015, Taylor Pace took over on bass and the newly assembled and now named Zen Marino was ready to hit the ground the running. Recording of the EP, with the help of friend and engineer Mike Kotlaba, began soon after. Still without a drummer, the band reached out to friend Mike Hagen to record drums for the tracks. Meanwhile, Chase, Kevin and Taylor spread word of the band and their music by performing acoustic versions of songs at a few open mic nights at local Elon bar and coffee shop The Oak House.
Zen Marino released their first single “Birdcage” on midnight of New Years Day 2016. On March 1, Zen Marino released their debut EP entitled Join The Club, a five track EP mixed by Kevin and mastered by Mitchell Sexton. Shortly after the release of the EP, Mike joined the band full time on drums, solidifying Zen Marino’s current lineup. Zen Marino played their first show as a full band at the Mu Phi Epsilon event Music In The Plaza on Elon’s campus in April 2016. A few weeks after their first show, Zen Marino released their first music video for an acoustic version of their new song “The Branches Shake Without A Breeze.” The track is the first to be released so far off of their upcoming debut full-length album, which has an expected release of Spring 2017.
Not allowing the distance to halt their progress, the band continued to formulate ideas over the summer from opposite sides of the country. Soon after returning to school in Fall of 2016, Zen Marino played their second full band show at The Oak House with fellow Elon band Cloud Hands. Most recently, the band was signed to Elon’s record label Limelight Records. Zen Marino has continued to work hard on new music and plan on beginning the recording of their album in the coming months.
