Mixing the Day-Glo new wave sound of the '80s with a punk-pop attitude, the Roseland, NJ-based band Cash Cash got their start in 2002 under the name the Consequence. Featuring longtime friends Jean Paul Makhlouf (vocals, guitar) and Samuel Frisch (vocals, bass), the Consequence squandered five years with numerous keyboardists and drummers joining -- and then quitting -- the band. In 2007, a more solid lineup came together when Jean Paul's brother Alex joined on keyboards while Anthony Villacari took over on the drums. The musicians spent a summer working inside Jean Paul's home studio and emerged with a stack of demos, including a rough cut of the infectious dance number "Party in Your Bedroom." They changed their name to Cash Cash in early 2008 and signed with the major label Universal. Now an Internet and club hit, "Party in Your Bedroom" also found its way onto their debut release for the label, a self-titled EP that appeared in October. Their debut full-length, Take It to the Floor, followed in early 2009 and was supported by a package tour that also included the Millionaires, I Set My Friends on Fire, and Tyga. ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
