Deal Casino is an indie pop band from Sparta, New Jersey.  Joe Parella and Jon Rodney started out in 7th grade in a cover band playing classic rock.  They brought in Joe Cowell in their freshman year of high school.
During a brief stint in Nicole Atkins’ band, Chris Donofrio played with Joe P and knew immediately they needed to be in a band together, and in 2013 the four of them became Deal Casino.     
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 the Calidus EP, a mini-collection of live and acoustic tracks.
In 2018, the band retreated to North Carolina with Erik Kase Romero of the Front Bottoms, recording a collection of songs that would become the Isadora Duncan EP and their second full length, LLC.
