Crosstown Concerts presents The Muckers

Standing out against the layers of noises a city like New York holds is no small feat: its blaring cars and screeching trains, its storied streets, blunt locals, and piercing sirens all meld together into a thick backdrop. The Muckers, a four piece as vibrantly fresh as resolutely timeless, are doing just that, and NME already calls them “one of New York’s most exciting new bands.”
Frontman Emir Mohseni moved to New York all the way from his native Iran to pursue a career in music. The move, profiled across acclaimed publications, from Rolling Stone to Billboard, only marked the beginning of the band’s story. Upon landing in this new environment, Mohseni met the three guys that would become his closest friends, and build with him the enlivening sound and enrapturing live show that The Muckers have garnered early praises for: Anthony Azarmgin at the bass, Chris Cawley on rythm guitar, and John Zimmerman behind the drums.
Endaevor is a fitting title for the band’s debut. Their journey is nothing short of an odyssey: first, as an immigrant taking refuge in New York City to have the right to perform rock music, then as a band caught in the global pandemic who’s had to let go of their greatest strength: thriving on any stage – from performing with Pond in a 800-cap room to making the crowds dance and sweat in the divey bars of Brooklyn.
