"Pleasantly mobile guitar repetition from hooky local pop trio." - Charles Eddy, The Village Voice (New York City weekly publication).
"An electric ladybug is a ladybug crossed with a firefly." - Aaron Strebs, Electric Ladybugs
Electric Ladybugs were born January 2003 in New York City, combining the talents of Aaron Strebs (Vocals/Guitar) Joel Hirsch (Drums/Vocals/Hand Percussion) and Big Dave (Bass/Vocals). Since then, they have released two records: "The Ladybugs" in the Spring of 2003 and the one you see above "Electric Ladybugs" in the Summer of 2004.

New York City is the greatest city on earth. It's home to some 8 million people and thousands of bands including the Electric Ladybugs. So how does this band rise above and stand out? With wings, of course. Tucked under the red shell, north of the glowing ass, Electric Ladybugs are equipped with a pair of translucent wings. High above the city they fly...
Electric Ladybugs are regarded as one of the best live acts in New York, delivering energetic, tight performances that are both sonically and visually pleasing. See Joel perform with his signature "Shaker Stick" a drumstick/shaker that he invented. See Big Dave and Aaron kick ladybugs around the stage. Come see the Ladybug Girls. Come scream "TWEAKER" at the end of the show. With the stage decked out with ladybugs, band and audience members suited in red & black, and beautiful melodies pouring from the stage, an Electric Ladybugs concert is a completely unique experience.
