The socially-charged and rock-roots infused band, Viva Mayday, is a New York City trio that is as politically conscious as they are musically inclined. Jafe Paulino (lead vocals/guitar), Duke Hoover (bass/vocals), and Gian Stone (percussion/vocals) come together in a blend of strong rhythms and harmony to produce powerful, inspiring tracks. As their energy fuels each performance, crowds stomp to signature beats and sing along to ear-catching melodies.
