Call it dark lounge.

Call it rock noir.

Call it Hell's house band.

Call it whatever.

The Night Porter is a new Pattsburgh-based band in search of a few additional members to fill out its ranks. We've been working remotely for a few months, but have ~30 original songs written and demoed that need to be fleshed out with a full line-up.

These songs will work in numerous arrangements, and I'm thinking this band will play live in numerous configurations, ranging from a duo to a 8-10 piece, depending upon the venue and players' availability, so we're casting a pretty wide net as far as the instruments we'd consider adding. Hopefully the demos posted here will give you an idea of what we're trying to do.
