HEADLINER:
The Bravery are an American rock band from New York City that consists of Sam Endicott, John Conway, Anthony Burulcich, Michael Zakarin, and Mike Hindert. Their music is a synthesis of indie rock and electronica. Their music has reached the top ten in the United States and the top five in the United Kingdom.

Frontman-songwriter Sam Endicott and keyboardist John Conway were classmates at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY in the late '90s.

As freshmen, their musical partnership began inauspiciously, playing local bars in mock-ska band Skabba the Hut, which also included CSI: Miami star Jonathan Togo.

The two went on to play together in numerous bands and recording projects, including new wave outfit Conquistador. Upon moving to NYC in early '00s, Endicott switched from bass guitar to vocals and began writing the music that would later become "The Bravery".

Guitarist Michael Zakarin joined after answering an advert in a local paper, and brought with him bassist Mike Hindert, a classmate of his from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Drummer Anthony Burulcich was living in Boston where he had studied percussion at Berklee College of Music.

After the tragic death of his sister, Burulcich moved back to his childhood home in Long Island New York to be with his family. On the day Burulcich was moving, while driving with his belongings in a Uhaul truck, Endicott called him. Endicott and Burulcich were introduced by mutual friends in NY band Bishop Allen.
