Hailing from a burgeoning pocket in the rich Brooklyn music scene, Miranda and the Beat is a vivid reminder of what makes rock n roll and soul hip-shakingly addictive. Fronted by the raspy powerhouse vocals and high energy guitar of Miranda Zipse, the band is reminiscent of bad girl soul singers such as Little Anne and Wendy Rene. Backed by the upbeat, thunderous drums of Kim "the Beat" Sollecito, the punchy bass lines of Mike Roth, the steady tambourine of Nazar Khamis, and melodic old school key lines from Dylan Fernandez, the band is recognized for its tight jive! Known for attacking garage rock and soul with a wild and unruly punk attitude, Miranda and the Beat is New York’s hottest underground garage rock and soul commodity.
