About the bands:

Brewster Moonface- “In a world of auto-tune, songs by committee and laptops on stage, Brewster Moonface stands in stark contrast with its vocal driven blues and minimalist nail driving rhythm section. There are no meat suits or disco balls here, just plain honest roots, blues and soul from the center of the world – New York City. If NYC is the city that never sleeps then Brewster Moonface is the gritty diesel engine of music that keeps it awake and dancing.
Brewster Moonface consists of Matt (Homeless) Giannino, the Detroit transplant drummer with a passion for all things rhythmic. Anthony (PY) Cimino of the Lower Hudson Valley whose bass lines make him the Bootsy Collins of the blues. (Crazy) Jim Polk who stumbled out of the Detroit rust belt with a guitar and Stevie Ray Vaughn record. And Brooklyn New York’s own Julie (Nasty) Notwicz whose vocals have been described as a combination of Janis Joplin and Big Mama Thorton.
Founded in New York City Brewster Moonface set out with the simple mission of bringing the blues back to the mainstream and then to push it to the next step. After ending a run with their rock band, Anthony and Julie resurrected Jim from his daily grind of drinking heavily and aging poorly, pulled Matt out of his carboard box, and Brewster was born. Since forming they have been featured on City World Radio, Dennis Has a Podcast and numerous other broadcasts and have played throughout the East and South. In addition, Julie has been named a Singer Universe featured vocalist and a Women of Substance Radio winner. But most importantly they have been featured in the dimly lit clubs, alleyways and street-corners of world always on the mission of “Bringing Back the Blues!” Information taken from Artist’s Facebook page -click here to follow Brewster Moonface-

The Pickin’ Pear- “Tia Martini and Leon Elam – The Pickin’ Pear – branch out from Canyon Collected to create a folk ‘n’ roll duo. They combine their non-traditional stylings to their traditional instruments and create an original mix of modern American music. Together the Pickin’ Pear take the banjo and ukulele down the road of folk, rock, and bluegrass. Sometimes the ukulele will even launch you straight to outer space. A blend of top-notch songwriting and improvisational jamming makes each one of their songs sound unique.” Information taken from Artist’s Facebook page -click here to follow The Pickin’ Pear-

Grassfed- “Grassfed is a quick-picking string band. Pivoting on the foundation of bluegrass, Grassfed entwines tradition with an eclectic array of influences. Forged by songwriters and driven by instrumental conversation, the band brings a punching sound all its own.

Grassfed is among top bluegrass up and comers– releasing their debut album January 2017, and touring nationally. With a non stop mind set, and ever growing fanbase– Grassfed shows no signs of slowing down.
