At the 11 PM concert lead singer Carvajal is joined by Burt Rock on guitar, Dylan Doyle on bass and guest drummer Mike Maenza. Audiences will also be treated to a special guest appearance by guitarist Eric Presti of the band Jessie's Girl.
Here's how the band is described: "The Deafening assembled in early 2008 with two clear missions. First, the band intentionally shed nearly all the petty contrivances of popular modern rock by striping its sound to the raw heart of classic rock. Second, The Deafening seeks to earn its' name by resurrecting the bombastic theater of the big live rock and roll show. Influences are numerous, and primarily counted as Guns N’ Roses, MC5, Iggy Pop, Kiss, The Rolling Stones, AC DC, Queen, and The Misfits. The band’s trademark is a unique blend of glam, horror, punk, blues and sleaze rock blasted through big guitar stacks, all while boasting one of the most interactive and memorable stage shows ever put together."
Carvajal has also appeared on Broadway in Tarzan, Dracula, 42nd Street and Cats. Her other stage work includes The Toxic Avenger, Rooms (New World Stages), Radiant Baby (Public Theater), Empire (Spiegelworld), Prometheus Bound (A.R.T.), The Last Goodbye (Williamstown) and Bedbugs!!! (NYMF Outstanding Actor Award).
