Karyn Kuhl Band
January 6 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Karyn Kuhl Band is a blues influenced rock quartet based in Hoboken, NJ and led by singer, songwriter, guitarist Karyn Kuhl. The current line-up includes renowned guitarist Jim Mastro (Ian Hunter, The Bongos), bassist Lou Ciarlo and drummer Jonpaul Pantozzi. Their 11 song recording Songs For The Dead won best album at the 2013 Hoboken Music Awards.
The band’s most recent EP, The Stars Will Bring You Home, was produced by James Mastro (Jill Sobule, Steve Wynn) and recorded & mixed by Tom Beaujour (Nada Surf, Juliana Hatfield).
Karyn Kuhl Band is known for their explosive and haunting live shows where songs skew heavily to minor keys and travel a dreamy and harsh landscape. Mastro’s and Kuhl’s dynamic guitar interplay and a flawlessly locked in rhythm section are at the service of Kuhl’s masterful vocal performances.
Prior to embarking on a solo career Kuhl fronted Hoboken favorites Gut Bank and Sexpod. Both bands garnered critical raves in the 80’s and 90’s and shared the stage with acts such as Richard Hell, Husker Du and Joan Jett.
Kuhl formed a band under her name in the early 2000’s. Her self-released EP The Beautiful Glow (2003) and full length Cigarette Songs (2007) were both produced by Super Buddha (Blondie, Debbie Harry).

“Kuhl looks to the rawness of the blues and electric guitar theatricality of anyone who likes it loud and fast and distorted”- njarts.net
“Reminding us that the blues were always a part of the early Stooges sound, Kuhl shredded her guitar nicely at the intersection of Ron Asheton Road and Albert King Avenue”- anearful.blogspot.com
