The Nth Power, paris_monster, Chris Bullock Band & more Throw Down Sunday Night at Drom in NYC

On Sunday night, I went to DROM in the East Village for APAP’s Royal Artist Group Showcase. The eight-hour musical extravaganza included indy acts such as Nick Cassarino (solo), Natalie Cressman and Ian Faquini, Chris Bullock Band, Bob Lanzetti, Muscle Tough, John “Papa” Gros, Nth Power and paris_monster.

The night started off with a Nick Cassarino solo show. Nick is the lead singer of the Nth Power and he has been touring as a duo with Jen Hartswick as of late this past year.  I have known him for 8 years since before the Nth Power ever got together when he was touring with Big Daddy Kane.  He has been writing his own music and his falsetto and guitar playing have gotten to be so beautiful. I was truly moved by his solo set and song interpretations with included both covers and songs Nick wrote himself.
