After signing on with indie label 3Flip Records, the Long Island based Ska/Funk sensation Nonstop To Cairo released their “Self-Titled” EP and in turn and has grown into one of New York’s top emerging artists, with high demand and a constantly growing fan base.
In the beginning, Nonstop To Cairo cliqued immediately, being voted Long Island’s Best Band only a few months after forming, in The Long Island Music Festival, hosted by Good Times Magazine. With the buzz around them building, the six piece ensemble began writing new material and made their way to New York’s esteemed Sabella Studios. There they teamed up with Multi-Platinum Record Producer, Jim Sabella, who has had the pleasure of producing the likes of LL Cool J, Public Enemy, and Marcy Playground. This would be the first time Nonstop to Cairo hit the studio with their revamped brass section, giving the record an incredibly live and colorful blend of rock that echoes the pocket of the P-Funk, mixed with the genius of bands like Weezer, Sublime and Fishbone. Crowds just eat up the band’s ability to stimulate good vibes with an upbeat track like “Rooted”, or the unique blend of reggae and driving guitars that can be heard in “Set the Tone”, but most all the EP hit home with the slamming rhythms and fresh sound of their single “We Be”. “We Be” received rave reviews, boosting Nonstop To Cairo to a national audience while being featured on Sirius XM’s Faction Radio, Channel 41.
Presently, ‘Nonstop’s growing success has landed them a sponsorship from Etnies Action Sports Footwear and Apparel and as well as performances with prominent acts such as The Dirty Heads, The Wailer’s, WAR, moe., Tea Leaf Green, Galactic, Ballyhoo! and Tim Reynolds. Along with the release of their new single, a feel good, party song called “9 to 5″, Nonstop to Cairo looks to continue touring and bring their big sound, and electric stage presence to an even larger fan base, while getting back into the studio to record their long awaited debut album.
In the end, Nonstop To Cairo has proven themselves as an unstoppable force in the music industry. With so many opportunities presenting themselves, one thing is for sure, this is the band to look out for in years to come. Join the ‘Nonstop’ Revolution and don’t miss the Party.
