Improv, to the Baltimore Comedy Factory, to Gotham Comedy Club in New York." -- Boston Comedy Festival

Hellz Kitchen is a hard-hitting rock duo originally from Hell's Kitchen. They became a band when Steve called Dylan and said "I have some good news, I just booked us our first show." They had never played music together before. And they haven't stopped since. They have a surprisingly huge sound for just two people. Steve somehow seems to play guitar and bass with his hands and organ / synth sounds with his feet, sometimes all at the same time. Hellz Kitchen is an instrumental band but the music is still decidedly narrative-inspired and makes for a sonically cinematic experience. Their music is not shackled to a click or snapped to a grid. So it can breathe and contort as they push and challenge each other. Dynamics shift, tempos change, and new interpretations or whole sections organically grow in their songs on the fly. Hellz Kitchen wants you to have fun at their shows. But they'll have fun at their shows whether you do or not.
"Just Blush consists of Nick Barno, Andrew Bryant, Todd Oravic and Abby Vail. No substitutions, no exceptions. We are a family, and as cliche as it is to say, we're in this for the love of the music. We could go our whole lives without anyone knowing who we are or what we sound like, but when we get together something Just Clicks and in the moment we feel like rock stars."
