Hark back to the glory days of 70’s Rock ‘n’ Roll as SLAMDINISTAS deliver a sound that perfectly blends US and UK influences of the era.
SLAMDINISTAS bring raw, in-your-face, street rock and roll. Their song ‘Brand New Day’ recevied massive radio respect, including regular play on Rodney Bingenheimer’s Sirius XM radio show on “Underground Garage”. This, and their incendiary live show at a label honcho’s Halloween Birthday Bash brought SLAMDINISTAS to the attention of Die Laughing Records/Golden Robot Records. What next? The prestigious label signed them immediately
Slamdinistas influences range from 70’s English PubRock, Punk & Classic Rock, and especially the British scene, ala Stones and Faces, recalling the Glory Days of Rock + Roll.
Each band member has made claim to his own piece of music history – as they say, “Guilty by association!” by the music groups they’re associated with.

Loren Molinare, Guitars and Producer, a Detroit transplant who’s band, The Dogs, have left a serious mark on the seminal Punk/Detroit rock scene.

Paul ILL, bass, has recorded and performed with many artists including The Willie Dixon Family Band, Tina Turner and Linda Perry.
