Bio: An amalgamation of rock, folk, and alternative, Miles Wide’s vocal style soars through cityscapes and over vast wilderness, colorfully breathing powerful emotion into stories of life, love, and loss. With a tone reminiscent of artists like Dispatch, Mason Jennings, and the Avett Brothers, solo performer Kyle Donovan twists genres and styles together to create a sonic fabric of beautiful rock. After years spent in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, he’s returned to his hometown of Rochester, NY & released Moon Howls (Summer 2014), a debut album featuring close friends.

Website: http://www.redelvises.com/

BIO: If Igor and Red Elvises aren’t in the middle of a tour, they are getting ready for the next one – this is a group that is constantly in motion and consistently evolving. Singer, songwriter, guitarist and showman extraordinaire Igor Yuzov is perpetually globetrotting and in the process he has found scores of wildly talented, entertaining musicians to bring into the fold of this increasingly international party band.

Red Elvises started as a Russian group, playing what they dubbed “Siberian Surf Rock”. Since then the band has included musicians from many other countries including United States, Israel, Puerto Rico and Bulgaria, to name just a few. Everyone who performs with them for any length of time brings something different both energetically and musically. At various times shows have included keyboards, accordions, sax, clarinet, trumpet, flute, banjo, mandolin, tuba and many other instruments. Old and new fans alike can expect to be surprised at shows again and again, however the roots of Red Elvises remain the same: Igor’s unique brand of humor combined with guitar based rock’n’roll that makes audiences want to sing, dance, scream and shout.

The blend of flute, cello, guitar, bodhran and vocal crooning brings Ireland and Americana right to the stage. The name “Rusty Kettle” takes after a little bit of local heritage, from the “rust belt” region of Western New York, and from the whistle of a “kettle” — summoning all who are near for drinks to share, community and the comfort of friends. With sounds similar to Nickelcreek, The Civil Wars, Alison Krauss and Union Station, they summon a little bit of a pub band – straight out of Dublin!
