    What You Have Done
Karousel is a teen rock band based out of the DC Metro Area. Formed in June of 2017, musicians Maddie Aponte (keys), Jack Husted (drums), Luke Jordan (bass), Sammy Krimstein (lead guitar), and Maya Ronick (rhythm guitar) initially only got together for one week of music summer camp.
All of the members enjoyed the experience so much, that they continued their band, under the name Karousel. They began gigging locally later that year, and rapidly started to add more songs to their set.
In January, 2018, they participated in their first Battle of the Bands, with other local talents, winning the "Best Vocals Award". Within the following months, they continued to develop as musicians, and in May, less than a year after the band was formed, they made it through to the final round of their countywide talent competition, "MoCo's Got Talent", performing at the Fillmore Silver Spring.
The rest of 2018 gave Karousel even more performances, where they performed at many impressive venues, including:
The Fillmore
Jammin' Java
Villain & Saint
AMP powered by Strathmore.
To end the year, Karousel made their way to the recording studio to record their first single, "What You Have Done". Just a month after it's recording, "What You Have Done" was released on January 24th, 2019. With many new original songs in the works, Karousel is very excited for the "Good Times Comin' Ahead".
