They’ve spent the last 4 years living in the same house together in Asbury Park. In those 4 years, Deal Casino has been paying their dues and coming into their own as a band. They started playing show after show in Asbury--at one point having 3 residencies at different venues simultaneously. Meanwhile, they had been playing, writing and recording in a local basement studio. The studio grew, and moved to a bigger, more state-of-the-art facility, and the band helped build it from the ground up, painting, wiring, and ripping up floorboards. Foregoing sleep and sanity, they recorded 3 EP’s at the same time-Heck (2014), Nika (2015), and Human Cannonball (2016), all leading up to the release of their 2017 self-titled LP. In December 2017, they released a follow-up to the Deal Casino LP. The Calidus EP is a mini-collection of live and acoustic tracks.
Deal Casino brings back a long tradition of great music coming from the Jersey Shore, but they do it for a new generation. Come see them soon in a city near you.
