RELEASE DATE: 3/1/19
Deal Casino have been playing music together since middle school. Three out of the four members – Joe P, Joe C, and Jon Rodney, all grew up together in Northern New Jersey.
By the time they found their drummer, Chris Donofrio, they were a complete formed musical unit, ready to come out swinging in the developing Asbury Park indie music scene.
Spending an intense first few years writing and recording, doing residencies all over New York, New Jersey and Philly, the band released their self-titled debut album and 3 EPs.
The last year saw a major shift for the band, as they took on a new direction in their writing, releasing the LLC LP in the fall and heading out on their first full US tour with The Wrecks and Badflower.
2019 promises more new music from Deal Casino, and more touring and an appearance at Governor’s Ball on Randall’s Island on May 31.
Deal Casino is an indie pop band from Asbury Park, NJ.
Joe P and Jon Rodney started out in a cover band in 7th grade, with Joe C joining their freshman year of high school.
During a brief stint in Nicole Atkins’ band, Joe P met drummer Chris Donofrio, and knew they needed to get him in the band.
In 2013, the four of them became Deal Casino.
They spent the next four years living together in the same house in Asbury Park, paying their dues in the local music scene and coming into their own as a band.
They played several shows at local venues and at one point have three different residencies at the same time.
They spent all their free time playing, writing and recording in a local recording studio.
Foregoing sleep and sanity, they recorded three EP’s at the same time-Heck (2014), Nika (2015), and Human Cannonball (2016), all leading to the release of their first, self-titled LP.
In December 2017, they released the Calidus EP, with live and bonus material.
In 2018, they retreated to Fidelitorium Studios in NC to record new songs written by the band.
This resulted in the Isadora Duncan EP and their second LP, entitled LLC, both produced by Erik Kase Romero of The Front Bottoms.
In late 2018, they hit the road opening for The Wrecks on their first U.S. tour.
