Biography

A group of five individuals with four letter names bound by creativity, camaraderie, and a passion for music: The City Never Sleeps consists of vocalist John Glenn (like the astronaut!), Erik Flora (guitar/vocals), Curt Mulick (drums), Kyle Hatch (guitar), and Dave Parker (bass). As “Band of the Week” in June 2009, GuerillaMagazine.com gushed, “The City Never Sleeps is a refreshingly hard to categorize rock outfit from [Albany, NY]… unsigned, relatively new on the music scene, but undeniably catchy.”

Originating from areas of the Hudson Valley and upstate New York, The City Never Sleeps relocated to the Capital Region last summer. Over the past few months, TCNS hasn’t stopped writing and demoing new music. A true do-it-yourself band, they have been regularly releasing new tracks recorded in their apartment every couple of weeks. Recently, they have played with bands such as: Weerd Science, Mirk, Athletics, Eytan and the Embassy; they have also shared the stage with: Paramore, Saosin, Acceptance, Owen, My American Heart, and Halifax.

The band originally formed as “Fourfit” in 2004 with long time friends Curt, Erik and John who went to Middletown High School together. Starting in Curt’s Parent’s basement, the band added a friend on bass and ventured from the music-cave to play shows locally after school and weekends at local events and venues all over the region. The band continued to play shows and write songs together throughout college and in 2008 they changed the name to “The City Never Sleeps”. Shortly after recording their first studio EP, the bassist left the band to pursue a career in law enforcement.
