Dealer is a ROCK band!

The Portland four-piece is made up of Karamy (vox), Dave (guitar), Matt (bass), Benny (drums). Karamy is the self-proclaimed ‘Queen of Sweaty Rock ‘n’ Roll’ and defends that crown with her massive vocals, soaring arrangements and stage antics. Karamy's energy combined with Dave's expert guitar licks, Matt's megaton bass, and Benny's thundering drum beats are building the band a concrete reputation around Portland as an act not to be missed.

The young band works hard and is recognized by major promoters in the area as THE opening band of choice for nationally touring rock acts, including DOKKEN, the Pat Travers Band, Tracii Guns (Founding member of LA Guns and Guns N' Roses) and we heard a rumor they are planning to play a gig at the Oregon State Penitentiary! Hey, even the guys in the big house need to get their rock on.

Dealer released its debut, self-titled EP in December 2005 and is available online and in music stores around the Pacific Northwest.
