You may think this an article on long overdue tips for the junior prom you attended almost a decade ago, but it’s not. It’s even better.
Junior Prom is the up-and-coming music duo comprised of Mark Solomich and Erik Ratensperger who have brought their Brooklyn-based beats to the forefront with a debut namesake EP, out now via Elektra Records. They’re also giving VIBE five random facts about them, so make yourself an insider JP expert before they breakout out into the masses:
Junior Prom fun facts:
1) Neither Erik or Mark actually went to junior prom.
2) Mark plays a right handed guitar upside down, left handed.
3) Marks’ 66 year old landlord sang backup vocals on “International.”
4) Junior Prom wrote, recorded and scrapped an album before making their debut EP.
5) They are currently touring in style- in a Dodge Caravan.
