1997 – present (24 years)
Tammany Hall NYC, also abbreviated THNYC, is an independent rock band based in New York City that has achieved a fair amount of success. Their music has been used in various television shows such as Scrubs, The Sopranos, Into Character and It Takes a Thief. Their music has also been used in the soundtracks for Into The Fire (2005), an independent film by Michael Phelan, and the New York restaurant documentary Eat This New York (2003).
Their name is derived from the historic New York political organization Tammany Hall. Although they do not classify themselves as a Celtic music group, the band has a strong Irish American identity and musical feel.
Tammany Hall NYC formed in 1997, and soon began playing in local New York clubs. The group gained a strong local following, releasing their first album, Getawayland in 1999 under the independent label Glass Records. The following year they released Back In The Bottle, an acoustic album that had more of a folk music influence than its predecessor. The songs "Cindy", "To the Woman" and "Someone" have been used on the NBC show Scrubs.
Buddy, their third album, was released in February 2003, and saw them returning to the louder mix of punk and alternative rock that had characterized their debut. The song "To the Woman," from this album, was featured on Scrubs on January 17, 2006. "Cindy," a re-recorded version of the song originally from Back In The Bottle, was also played on Scrubs in October 2003. Later in 2003, the soundtrack to Eat This New York was released, which showed a wide range of Latin and jazz influences on the band's part.
