Vegas Indie Artists June 2014 - Page 8





Brothers Danny Boy and Jimbo (Dan and Jim Kehoe) make up the beat-heavy musical/MC duo, HardNox. They began their music careers as DJs in the Bay Area of California. Growing as DJs and club kids in the musically-diverse area, they quickly learned what moved a crowd and what would bring the party to a screeching halt. So after nearly seven years of spinning the same songs, they decided to push their creativity to new levels and make their own music.

HardNox represents the ultimate do-it-yourself work ethic. The Vegas favorites write, record, mix, produce and master their own material just steps away from the kitchen sink. But don’t let their pallid faces fool you; these white boys bring the bass and will blow your car speakers out the window. Lyrically, they manage to be both intuitive and hilarious, but mainly they just want people everywhere to forget their worries and go crazy.

Their hits through the past few years include “Let The Bass Go,” “Fly Away,” “She’d Rather Be With The DJ,” 2010's stadium anthem “Fist Pump.” HardNox also performed "Fist Pump" again in the 2012 San Francisco Giants World Series Parade in front of 2 million people. "Fist Pump" has also been used on major television networks such as ABC, NBC, FOX, Spike TV, E!, MTV, Style, Oxygen to name a few and the season premiere of 2010's “American Idol” to Howard Stern using a personalized version of "Fist

Pump" for his SiriusXM show! Their newest single "I Dunno What To Say" hit over 46,000 in less than 48 hours on VEVO! Look out for HardNox!!
