theNEWDEAL Band Review

Veterans of the jam scene, theNEWDEAL create their own interpretations of electro house, trance, breakbeat and drum & bass. They do this on the fly— live, improvisational style.

People say theNEWDEAL, “brought traditionally electronic music to the live music scene.”  This has come full circle as theNEWDEAL is bringing live music to the electronic music scene.

Supposedly the band does not rehearse or know what they will play before taking the stage. Basically, the compositions fans are familiar with were all created on stage as a result of recurring jams.

On this night, the audience witnessed the band in great form. From escalating excursions to breathtaking vistas, theNEWDEAL went full on and didn’t let up.
