Sos the Mob & the Limo Love Scam
Heavy. Melodic. Driving. Grooving. These are just a few of the adjectives that describe the NYC dynamic trio known as SOS. Comprised of Raymond Paez on drums, MikeSOS on guitars and Adam Mastrosimone on bass and vocals, these Queens College alumni have been honing their skills for over 5 years, proving that pimpin' just isn't as easy as one may think. 'What sets us apart from other bands is that we make the songs the real stars,' MikeSOS explains. 'We don't have just one person in the spotlight. A lot of bands get caught up in the smoke and mirror techniques of the music business, but we instead dedicate that time and effort to our songwriting and tightness.' Such songwriting prowess and cohesiveness can be found on the second SOS release from 316 Productions, their 14 track CD, SOS, The Mob and The Limo Love Scam: Pimpin' Ain't Easy. Blending elements of hard rock, metal, punk, hardcore and funk, the sounds SOS come up with are both unique and refreshingly familiar. Drawing comparisons to such rock luminaries as Metallica, Nirvana, COC, STP, Creed, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains, SOS finds themselves in good company. Playing over 250 gigs across the NY Metro area, (everywhere from CBGB's to Castle Heights), has made this triple threat a live force to be reckon with. Opening for such national acts as Absolute Bloom, Core, Jack Off Jill, Sabra Cadabra and LA Guns shows that the SOS blend of rock music is versatile and can appease a mass audience. SOS is looking forward to getting out there and spreading the good word. After a long toil honing their craft in NYC, 'we can't wait to go out and play anywhere a U-Haul will take us,' Mike proclaims. With the new CD and massive stage experience under their belts, the attitude and energy in the band is at a fever pitch. 'We know we've got something special here,' Mike adds, 'we just can't wait to share it with everyone.'
