We go on at 10PM, but come early for tributes to Joan Jett and Smashing Pumpkins. Stay late for The Clash and The Cure!


New York’s Finest Go Global: Brazil, Atlantic City, NYC!!

A little under three years ago, New York’s Finest began as a good-natured experiment. A proper power trio of seasoned New York City rockers—Oscar Bautista, Alan Camlet & Mark Rinzel—met a challenge from the high priestess of NYC tribute rock, Cathy Cervenka. Her request? A Classic Album night performance of Outlandos D’Amour, the hit-heavy debut masterpiece by The Police. New York’s Finest played its first show three weeks later in August 2010.

Since then, we’ve kept true to our vision of this band. It remains three guys who cut their musical teeth on The Police as kids. It’s three musicians who know each other from years of banging it out on the Lower East Side, in Yonkers Irish pubs, in basement rehearsal studios, at Long Island weddings, at wherever it is that musicians play when all they really care about is playing. New York’s Finest know that what made The Police great were three guys who played those amazing songs ferociously but with finesse, guys who left everything on the stage in a sweaty mess.

We don’t do wigs. We don’t impersonate. WE PAY TRIBUTE!

We kept to that mission and vision for three years. And so we are humbled to tell our awesome fans and friends about the amazing summer we have ahead of us.

—>On July 14th we’re literally playing our first out of town gig, at the Golden Nugget Atlantic Casino (Huron & Brigantine Blvd.)
**Two 60 minute sets (1PM and 7PM) as part of “FAKEFEST”: http://www.goldennugget.com/atlanticcity/pdf/fakefest.pdf

—>We’ll be in NYC for another mini-residency at our home base club, Arlene’s Grocery,for three consecutive Mondays (July 15, 22 & 29) opening for RnR Karaoke. We hit the state at 9PM!

—>Then it’s back to AC on 8/10 to play Revel Casino
**Two 60 minute sets at 2PM and 8PM!

—> FINALLY, we are heading to BRAZIL for three shows in the coastal resort Florionapolis, 8/16, 8/17 & 8/18. This has been a dream of ours since staring this band, knowing that The Police are enormously popular there.

It because of your support and enthusiasm that we are able to announce this news! Thanks so much, and we’ll see you at Arlene’s!
