PUMP! is a high energy pop/club band that offers non-stop sets of Top 40 dance hits, sprinkled with a few classic dance tracks. We have two dynamic and talented lead vocalists (male and female) whose incredible voices layer harmonies and belt out powerful renditions of hits from Kesha, Rihanna, Gaga, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Avicii, Usher, etc. We have 3 talented musicians offering guitar, bass, and drums, playing seamlessly with programmed synth and sound effect tracks that simply fill a room with sound.
Each member of PUMP! has performed in numerous bands over the years, and they now combine their talents to bring audiences a unique brand of music. High energy dance and pop hits, delivered rock and roll style!
Amelia Profaci. Singing almost her entire life, Amelia brings years of stage and recording experience to the band. Her accomplishments are impressive, and include winning first place in Amateur Night at the Apollo. As well, Amelia sang her way through four rounds of auditions for American Idol, and three rounds for The Voice. With dynamic presence and a killer voice, Amelia will be right at home at center stage.
On bass, we bring to you John Sorice. John comes via Omnipop band PUSH, who has played in all of Long Island's best nightclubs. John has been playing bass for over 30 years, and has well over 1000 gigs under his belt.
Drummer Mike Straus has over 20 years of experience playing in some of Long Island's top bands, including the Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute Soul To Squeeze. Now he lays down the heavy beats today's dance music requires, and keeps the sound full with a variety of samples and synth stems
Guitarist Mike Laimo has been playing since the 80's. A popular horror novelist with ten books and two feature films to his credit, Mike now lets his creative talent bleed into his guitar playing.
