I have had the pleasure of knowing the band Miss Derringer for over a year now. Though aware of their music prior to that (a friend pointed me in the direction of their first album previously) it wasn't until their New York tour of 2008 that I became a true fan. I was delighted then, to discover they would be coming back to New York City in June of this year to support their newly released album Winter Hill.

Bassist Sylvain de Muizon - an essential cornerstone of the Miss Derringer sound.
Liz strikes a dramatic pose for nearly every occasion.
Songwriter, guitarist Morgan Slade gets it right.
Masked "bandito" Dody James throttles the rhythm.
Syl and Liz - shadows and light
Syl kicks in with some background vox while guitarist Ben Shields brings the twang.

Special thanks to band manager Dave Bason and tour manager WC Moriarity. These two experienced veterans of the music industry appear to be making all the right moves in helping to direct the bands business matters. Bason represents his artists from a home base right here in New York, while Moriarity is LA based, and seems most comfortable on the road with the band.
