Boogie rockin'' party music from New Jersey
A top notch slice of grubby-jeans and t-shirt, blazing, guitar-pop, roots-rock from New Jersey. That''s no put down. When it''s done right, there''s little better music played on this planet, and the MCP Band does it right.
Started in 2001 with "Rock ''til you drop" attitude, singer-songwriter, Matt Coffy, who has warmed up for acts like Foghat, The Guess Who, Bob
Weir among others, the Band has blazed new sonic journeys into the roots rock revival scene. This music is the kind of thing you''d expect to hear walking into a blue-collar bar for a Miller High Life on a Saturday night in a suburban town. The guitar solos are fluent, the riffs jangle, and the rhythm section rolls along like a strong shot of hooch.
A fan once described them as ….. The Black Crows met John Cougar''s "Scarecrow" while at a medicine show revival held by Warren Zevon and Dan Baird in
Filling out the rest of band, on Bass is John Pope who somehow arrived at playing with Matt now and again for over 20 years now. Jay Singer, whose guitar speaks several languages, majors in rousing a crowd with his insane tone and passionate playing. And the man who keeps the whole ship of fools together, Chuck Tumulty on the drums, beating the daylights out those eardrums if you get too close to him during a live
set. Paul Rodriguez who joins this year on keyboards completes the lineup as a perfect fit for the high octane roadhouse rock team.
The band has been playing in and around the NJ and NYC bar scene for the last five years. With a trail of steady gigs behind them, whether it is O''Donoghues On First in Hoboken or Kenny’s Castaway in NYC, the band continues to soldier on, winning over new music fans. Besides the 100 or so, varied classic cover songs the band has under there belt, they have become comfortable with playing entire sets of their own songs in front of audiences.
With the debut of 2007 CD entitled “Above The Waterline”, you’re hearing the boys just like you would hear them on stage. The production was recorded basically live, its raw, practically unedited playing, is not your ultra safe adult-alt-country-rock processed material. It’s been well received by reviewers and fans alike. Recently, the title track on the CD, Particular Condition, has received attention over at https://www.tradebit.com. Winning “Track on the Week” and maintaining a “Top 20” status in the Americana genre. That tune has beat out 100’s of other bands on its way up the charts. With Great songwriting, the album is chock full of amped up melodies to get your arms flaring and your head bobbing.
Their high spirited and unhinged live shows are an incredible blend of talent, guts and pure inspiration for those who dig the roots of Rock and Roll. The bands getting ready to party, so bring your friends, get out on the dance floor and they''ll learn ya how to have a great time!

4.4 out of 5 stars
Tried and true good ol'' fashion rock n roll song here I am listening to . I hear a good splash of The "Kinks" in this song...which for my liking is great, but I also get a early who vibe at times as well, Which to that I say "Right on guys"!!! You have some real good piano playing going https://www.tradebit.coms song is a real rocker..I should also say that it really has a "Stonesy" sound as well. Vocals are https://www.tradebit.com the chorus hook is a big reason as to why this song is so damn catchy. Great music behind those great vocals as well. I just love the vibe I get from this song, the singer sells it too, They sound like they have some Soul going on,and everything just blends so well and It really is a very good listen. Great songs guys!

Good rock fun
This song has the focused high energy of the likes of Warrren Zevon and The Who. The vocals are gritty when the lyrics prescribe (no pun) The harmonies blend in a way that makes you feel that even though the band is rocking and feels like it will be out of control any second, there is one of those nice stops (reminiscent of the who) for the chorus and the singers who sing sincerely and then are right back in to the fire. Good band, lots of fun.
