Interview with lead singer, Nathan Lacy, about Neon Dynamite.
- So So Gay, 07.14.11
"With their fast, fun, and funky sound, this first-rate band is a head-turning, toe-tapping experience that no one should miss. Lead by their hi-energy, powerhouse vocalist, Nathan Lacy, Neon Dynamite is always ready to bring a good time to any stage they hit."
- Fertile Ground, 06.30.11
"We’re not talking full on disco, but Neon Dynamite are going for the groovy vibes left behind by the punk revival"
- BushwickBK, 06.17.11
"Neon Dynamite is ready to make your feet explode with their funky ass tunes. Their new EP features some of the hottest dance tunes I've heard since Boston's Bodega Girls new EP... One listen to "Diamond Star" is all I needed to be mesmerized by their music. With smooth vocals, a funky bass, and hot beats, you can't go wrong with this band."
- Star Beat Music, 06.01.11
"Neon Dynamite = the next big thing to come out of Brooklyn. The perfect mixture of rock, funk, dance and soul."
- The Music Elitist, 11.21.10
"The funky beats they bring to the table have me hiding in the closet... A dance anthem like “Outta Control” takes me out of my ass-wiggling routine within about 10 seconds; I just don’t have the moves to keep up with that."
- The Inept Owl, 11.15.10
"With their undeniably charismatic stage presence and airtight, four-on-the-floor grooves, Neon Dynamite commanded an in-your-face stage presence, their music imploring the audience to get on their feet and party. You could instantly see that this band is all about those live moments, about going on stage and laying a beat tighter than you-know-who’s-you-know-what. Here, at last, was an indie band that’s all about giving people a good time, damn it."

BioIn the relatively short time that Neon Dynamite has exploded out of Brooklyn in the summer of 2010, they have poured their organic blend of party/funk/soul all over dance floors in NYC. Hailed as "the next big thing to come out of Brooklyn" by The Music Elitist, Neon Dynamite captivates audiences with their "overtly danceable, undeniably funky, and enthralling soul tunes", says music blog Speak Into My Good Eye. While reinventing genres to create their unique sound, it is always the simplicity of their mission that remains the focus: To compel planet Earth to dance.
