Adios Mafia is a ferocious rock n’ roll band emerging from the forgotten enclave of Woodlawn in the Bronx, NYC, bordering the drinking capitol of Yonkers. There, 4 friends formed a musical gang, a brotherhood, a mafia, tired of PC-friendly rock music lacking the aggression and ingenuity the genre once had. Striking back with intensity and determination, their unapologetic persona has horrified a few, but has invigorated many more. While incorporating influences that range from the Ramones to Guns n’ Roses to the Clash to Johnny Cash to Run DMC, they’ve blistered crowds in the Tri-state Area since their inception in July 2007.
“Not since the Ramones have I seen a band with a pure, badass American rock presence. Aside from this fact they also display a unique mixture of Punk Rock, Funk and Metal that melds together creating a sort of new kind of music that keeps true to its influences. In a time and age when most new music is presented in some formulaic package, The Mafia simply comes out and does what any band should do when performing or making music, Rock your ass off!... ”
Eric Gonzalez - Ratt Fink Magazine
"All jokes aside, this cd is pretty damn great. Every song is memorable and infectious with Nick Marvalous providing a voice and vocal delivery that fits the bands style and attitude perfectly."
-Dave G, United By Rocket Science
"Of course, these bruthas bear the imprint of fellow New Yorkers RAMONES and BEASTIE BOYS, but there’s surely something their own in their grooves, like the classic hard rock riffage and soloing in “Mean n’ Dirty” which sets in one’s frontal lobe for long – before long. So, although it must be hard to compete on the scene, the mafiosi are here to stay, and “no stopping us” is no mere boasting here."
“Apparently Adios Mafia believes we’ve forgotten what rock is supposed to sound like. Upon listening to a few of their tracks - spirited, loud, high energy - we sincerely appreciate the reminder. Their forte seems to be the live venue, so if that’s your scene, do show up.”
