Atabey is a 5 piece Pop Punk, Post-hardcore band from New York. They have played numerous shows which include co-headlining Webster Hall more than once, performing at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, New York and Arlene's Grocery Store where bands such as Saosin have played before.
Atabey began in 2007 When vocalist, Eddie James and bassist Josh Agudo decided to put together a band that defined uniqueness, creativity and rebellious music.
The journey began when both men recruited Jessie Rodriguez as their guitarist, Manny Colon as their lead guitarist and Nija Walker as their drummer.
With diverse, influential musical taste, all 5 musicians put together melodic, detailed and inspiring music for everyone to enjoy. With a growing fan base and popularity among the New York Music local scene, Atabey has then continued to impress fans with vigorous live performances and stimulating, captivating, melodic lyrical and musical structures.
Atabey draws the influences from acts such as Finch, My Chemical Romance, The Used and Senses Fail.

Who wants an Atabey CD? $5 each.
After months of us playing as a four piece band, It was always in our interest to play as a 5 piece (originally how the band started). Adding that extra ”Oomf” if you will. Though we’ve always been tight as a band to make sure that we provide our music with that extra oomf as a 4 piece for that past few months, we still needed to find that missing piece to the puzzle. And so we did.
We want to introduce to you and welcome our newest member to Atabey Manuel Colon. :)
He’ll be playing lead guitar. To catch Manny on his first show with us and also to listen to some new tracks live… (You won’t want to miss) be sure to come to our July 3rd show at Arlene’s Grocery. For more information regarding that show, click on the link below.
Lets welcome Manny to the band!
