In a time where bigger is often considered better, The Counterfeit Party proves that the simplicity of good ol' rock 'n' roll still prevails. Catchy guitar riffs, storylike lyrics and a touch of twang from this Arizona four-piece will bring you back to the uncomplicated, straightforward sounds of decades past. You'll be singing along as The Counterfeit Party puts an unexpected spin on timeless hits like Bruce Springsteen's "I'm on Fire" and getting up to groove on the dance floor as the group brings you its feel-good, guitar-driven originals.

The Counterfeit Party tracks, "Wanting More" and "Drive My Car," have received major praise and airtime on radio stations throughout the southwest as well as online radio shows. The band's first
recorded track, "The Best Party Anywhere," was even adopted as the official theme song to the
Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling at the Legendary Sturgis Buffalo Chip.

Brad B and Foundation grew up in Indianapolis Indiana. Being from the Midwest they were in a unique position to be influenced by East Coast hip hop such as A Tribe Called Quest, KRS One, and the Beastie Boys, to name a few.

At the same time being Hit from the left coast with N.W.A., the Hieroglyphics, and Ice T, also just to name a few. Meanwhile, classic rock and the blues of Chicago, being so close is very apparent in the Midwest and in their sound.

Their live show is an audio/visual extravaganza that has captivated even the most jaded show patron. With big beat banging production from Foundation, the furious flows of one of the illest emcess of the last ten years Brad B, and Dumperfoo, one of the pioneers of the live art movement.

They have toured extensively for the last eight years in the United States and Europe and have gathered a legion of die-hard fans from all walks of life and musical backgrounds. For the last twelve years the Insects have always stayed relevant and perhaps ahead of there time.
