VIVA plays guitar like a flaming sword, a screaming train, a ringing bell, and a scratching chicken. She sings like if Freddy Mercury had been a woman. She is influenced by diverse artists and styles including Jimi Hendrix, Dolly Parton, NYC, disco and jam band music, and has played everywhere from Bonnaroo with Cyro Baptista to Monterey Jazz Fest with Peter Apfelbaum. She has produced sell out music, burlesque and variety shows at The Slipper Room and Joe's Pub and is one of the few females to be featured in Guitar Player Magazine.
"Viva is the musical love child of Little Richard and Joan Jett" - The Aquarian
R.T.F.M are Izzi RAMKISSOON's bass riffs and comebacks. Hans TAMMEN's rebel synth blips and blasts become the lead. Joshua "Radio Wonderland" FRIED's boombox, steering wheel and shoes become the drummer. RAMKISSOON TAMMEN FRIED MACHINE = RTFM. Out-Funk.
PINK VELVET WITCH aka NIKOS BRISCO are a multi instrumentalist, surrealist, composer, performance artist, actor and writer. They are current “Outside Talker” at Coney Island Sideshows by the Seashore as well as producer of “OUTCAST CABARET” and “MUSIC OF CURIOSITIES” at C.I.U.S.A.
