The Moho Collective

Friday, May 2nd
Show: 9:30 pm – 12:30 am
$5 cover

Rock/Art/World

http://www.themohocollective.com/

Bio: If, when you envision the marriage of electrified rock and jazz, the word “fusion” immediately comes to mind, it’s probably best that you think of The Moho Collective in terms culinary fusion instead. Like a team of skilled chefs, the members of The Moho Collective are always keen on making sure that any ingredient they add in a given moment doesn’t intrude on the palette. As much stylistic ground as the band covers, each musical element in a Moho composition sits well with the rest. The Moho Collective possesses an orchestra’s penchant for epic gestures and an ethnomusicologist’s drive to understand. But what stands out the most about The Moho Collective’s music is how seamlessly all these sounds come together.  Drawing heavy inspiration from groups like Booker T. and the M.G.s, Santo & Johnny, and The Meters, The Moho Collective places as much of a premium on the art of arrangement as it does on exploration for its own sake. By staying focused in both domains, the music strikes an unparalleled balance.

Where other improvisational groups revel in the abstract, Moho Collective songs give the listener a sense of place, character, and narrative.” – Scott Regan, Open Tunings (WXXI)

“Every piece is a musical journey that takes me through a roller coaster of emotion. I’m impressed by the way they coax fresh sounds out of their instruments, showing no fear of dissonance or volume, and no fear of breaking away from the traditional ways instruments are played.”– Scott Murawski, Max Creek

The End Men

Heavy Blues/Blues-tinged Rock & Roll

theendmen.com

facebook.com/theendmen

Bio: The End Men were created in 2010 as a three piece, losing a member in 2011 and remaining a core two-piece with an extended family to this day. Composed of Matthew Hendershot (guitar and vocals) and Livia Ranalli (drums, percussion and vocals), the average listener would be surprised to find that the powerful sound The End Men project is only coming from two people. With the raw, rasp-soaked vocals and the guitar-split to give the illusion of a bass, along with the rock solid drum pocket peppered with found percussive elements, the band rides a wave of dirty blues rock and vaudevillian stomp. In a few short years, The End Men have carved out a name for themselves in their home base of NYC, and drop jaws and turn heads with every show they perform.

Teressa Wilcox Band

Thursday, 5/8
9-11 pm

Rock/Pop/Soul

http://www.teressawilcox.net/

Bio: “Wilcox’s music isn’t at all weepy or sappy; it isn’t the blues. She stands out in a genre crowded by wronged women armed with guitars. She sings brightly, gently, and in earnest above her fluidly percussive guitar playing. Her acoustically rooted music has legs enough to keep up in an amped-up, full-band situation as well, where it takes on a less rural, less twangy Lucinda Williams-type tack. Her music is a sigh backed with power, resolve, and relief.”
-Frank De Blase, City

The John Payton Project

Show: 10 pm-midnight

Funk/Rock/Soul

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-John-Payton-Project/109097409157239

Bio: Flavors of funk, reggae, ska, new-wave, soul, rock, and more coalesce in their sets, and one of its greatest strengths is the dance of its many styles. At a JPP show the band might take you from a deep reggae groove to a Talking Heads cover, from touches of Band of Gypsies-era Hendrix to flashes of eighties Bowie, weaving a kaleidoscopic soundscape that spans decades and nations. Not disjointed, but nebulous; tight, but soulful; frenetic, but funky, and always so very danceable, the John Payton Project can surely hold down a crowd.

Old Hippies

Friday, May 16th
Show: 9:30-11:30 pm
no cover

www.oldhippiesmusic.com

Bio: For these time traveling old hippies, Bill McDonald, Jim Catino, Kay McMahon,Vinnie Pastore, and Jim Sweet, it has always been about the music. Beginning on front porches, in fields and parks and around the campfires of the sixties, the seed was planted. It has grown over the years as they have traveled across the North American continent, entertaining countless numbers of entertainment revelers, while continuing the journey….

Now they’ve come full circle with an enduring passion for the music of their youth. The music of the Old Hippies is acoustic and a varied brand, be it their own creative songs or recognizable covers from a golden musical era: the fifties, sixties and seventies and on and on…, nostalgic to those who lived it and romanced by those who didn’t.

They have brought with them those unmistakable vocal harmonies and pleasing acoustic renditions of so many great tunes…missed by many, remembered by most and loved by all. When the Old Hippies sing and play, it’s an event for all to share. Invite us over for an afternoon or evening of wonderful music.

Old Hippies will leave everyone with…. a smile on their face, peace in their mind, and a song in their heart!

Mighty High and Dry

Saturday, May 17th
Show: 10 pm-midnight
no cover

Rock

https://www.facebook.com/themightyhighanddry

Bio: With the influence of Rolling Stones, Black Keys, and Neil Young audible within their performances, The Mighty High & Dry’s sound shines through each song, rooted by Kyle Vock’s (mostly upright) deep-digging bass, Chris Teal’s dynamic and crisp drumming, Alan Murphy’s guitar hooks and stylistically flexible singing, and Mike Frederick’s edgy guitar talk.

With lyrical tones that range from humanistic (“Here’s To The King”, “Trust Me Brother”), Dionysian (“Hangover Bridge”, “Shine”) to animalistic (“The Snake”, “War It Is”), MHD paints life’s adventure as an ever-unfolding mirror, which hangs over an altar with full bar.

calendar-jennaandthehops

Bio: Jenna & The Hops bring a little boogie to your life by honoring divas and characters from musical past with their concerts. Their danceable blend of soul, blues and vintage R&B music has rocked Upstate New York and includes vocalist Jenna Weintraub (The Alpine Black, Krypton 88), Aleks Disljenkovic on guitar (Son House, Joe Beard, The White Hots), Dan Lopata on string bass and vocals (Mysterious Blues Band, The Chris Beard Blues Band), Justin Passmonte on drums (Nevergreen) and Mathew Seiber-Ford on saxophone, clarinet and flute (Buddahood). Here is what the critics are saying:
“It was over to Monty’s Krown after that to dig Jenna Weintraub warble sweet ‘n’ nasty. She’s a little meaner than Marti Brom, a little sweeter than Wanda Jackson, but doesn’t put on airs in either direction. She just tips her head back and lets it fly.”

“Weintraub has arrived as the balls-to-the-wall belter I just knew was hiding in there, clawing at the walls to get out. She and the band rocked the outdoor stage in the Village Gate courtyard and would’ve brought the house down had she been indoors. Viva la Weintraub!”

$3 cover

Blues Rock

http://www.violetmary.com/

Bio: “What happens After the Plunge?” Violet Mary answers with Level, its third studio album, released on April 23, 2013. The self-produced album is an honest, dynamic, and hard-hitting collection of nine songs that take the listener on a journey from a challenge to victory to peace. Level is about movement—both the uncertain movement of trying to find one’s footing in a difficult situation, and then the righting of the ship, leveling out and charting a steady course.
