The Black Tape Friday, October 14, 2011
The Black Tape has been taking Chicago by storm with their unique mix of sixties influenced rock, Motown sound and power-pop flare. Brooklyn native Rashid Lamarre (guitar, vocals) began the Black Tape as a way to bring new life to musical influences of the past (The Zombies, The Crystals and the Clash to name a few), while adding a modern kick to the mix. With the addition of Arizona native Kyle Hartman on guitar, U.P. transplant Ryan Staples on bass, and Iowa born powerhouse drummer Nic Dell, the band?s sound has come together and what continues to develop is a series of addictively catchy songs that fans are happy to have stuck in their heads. As a reviewer from The UnCool.com wrote, the Black Tape is ?delivering music that is as accessible as a high-five, as bright as the sunlight reflecting off of rolling waves?. The Black Tape is eager to keep the waves rolling as they continue to make their mark in Chicago and beyond.
