The #1 independent act in the country, brothers Danny Boy and Jimbo (Dan and Jim Kehoe) make up the beat-heavy musical/MC duo, HardNox. They began their music careers as DJs in the Bay Area of California. Growing as DJs and club kids in the musically-diverse area, they quickly learned what moved a crowd and what would bring the party to a screeching halt. So after nearly seven years of spinning the same songs, they decided to push their creativity to new levels and make their own music.
HardNox represents the ultimate do-it-yourself work ethic. The Vegas favorites write, record, mix, produce and master their own material just steps away from the kitchen sink. But don’t let their pallid faces fool you; these white boys bring the bass and will blow your car speakers out the window. Lyrically, they manage to be both intuitive and hilarious, but mainly they just want people everywhere to forget their worries and go crazy.
Their hits through the past few years include “Let The Bass Go,” “Fly Away,” “She’d Rather Be With The DJ,” “Fist Pump,” and as of late 2011/2012 “Eenie Meenie Miney Moe!” From being used on major television networks and having Ryan Seacrest fist-pump on the season premiere of “American Idol” to Howard Stern using a personalized version for his SiriusXM show and it being the anthem of the 2010 World Series Champions San Francisco Giants “Fist Pump Fever” is taking the U.S. by storm and their new single “Eenie Meenie Miney Moe!” continues to put HardNox above the rest!
