Bite the Bullet




Bite the Bullet is a New York-city based band who has been developing their chops over the past few years playing gigs in Manhattan, Queens, and New Jersey at places such as The Bitter End, Connolly’s Klub 45, Alphabet Lounge, and American Bar among other venues. A typical Bite the Bullet set is an interesting mix of blues, classic rock, hard rock, with some country, jazz, rockabilly and other genres mixed in. We strive to avoid the cliché songs and try to find those hidden gems that you haven’t heard for awhile or maybe haven’t heard at all, mixed in with some old favorites – you never know what we may play next!

The band is led by Allyn Hartstein's powerful vocals, with the blond bombshell Lana Dubes on Drums, funky cat Alan Bessen on bass and Jim Atwell on guitar. Bite the Bullet’s members have a diverse set of musical influences that also has a lot of common ground, which has lead to the formation of a tight group with an interesting setlist.
