From the dusty mire of the Long Island, NY scene, The Karma Parade was founded by John Karma, formerly of the legendary garage-folk punk act Karma Essence. This band also included Joe Spadaro later of indie legends Atomic Hep Cats and American Laundromat Records fame. Since the breakup in 2001 a new band formed. The trio, who later became John Karma & The Band Parade, included Nancy Hilsenbeck on percussion and Edward McNeice, of local fav's Otis Mercury Jones on bass. The power trio has created quite a buzz on the Long Island scene since 2004. Following their first performance at the first showcase for American Laundromat Records in September of 2004, the band changed their name to the The Karma Parade and began recording their first solo effort.
The Karma Parade has since signed up with American Laundromat Records in 2004, and have been in the studio recording their first EP release tentatively called "One Hundred Days" due out in 2007. The song on this page is a featured pre-release from the upcoming EP.
