Schwick Rehearsal Bushwick Brooklyn, NYC – Color Shots
It was an honor to be invited to Schwick’s recent rehearsal to shoot. Love their energy. This band ripped the paint off the wall in rehearsal.
Schwick made its debut as a duo on September 26, 2015 at The Paper Box as an opening act for The Honey Trap at their album release party. With the positive response, and being at an album party, both Yoshi & Johnny agreed they ought to have their own material to release and hit the studio that October to record some demos with engineer whiz kid Matthias Anton at NYU.
After their second show, an erratic display of angst and energy at the Bushwick weekend fest Rock n’ Shop, they were immediately asked to return so Johnny called in Marlon from their previous project to play bass. He agreed and Schwick played its first show as a trio on January 10, 2016 at the Rock n’ Shop followed by an engaging show as an opening act at Fat Baby in the Lower East Side.
Since then, they’ve shared bills with local hard rockers loveHONEY, Slow Suck, Crown Colony and appeared as part of 2016’s Northside Festival.
