The Heave-Ho
The Heave-Ho
Pete played the guitar and thought he might be able to sing. Barry (Keith S.) played the bass. Jason played the drums. Harlem Greenwood (Marc S.) almost made parole, broke out of a maximum security halfway house and stole a firetruck because he thought it would be funny. We figured we could be a good band. We may or may not have been right.
Rolling Nectar
Rolling Nectar
Boston-based ROLLING NECTAR embraces vintage-style rock 'n roll influences such as Free, Jimi Hendrix, and Humble Pie, creating a uniquely honest and gritty modern rock sound laced with psychedelic overtones, Americana & old-school Rhythm & Blues. Fronted by founder Kevin J. Graham (vocals/guitar), and backed by the TNT rhythm section of bruising drummer Tony St. Cyr and multi-instrumentalist Todd M. Smith on bass, Rolling Nectar has recently added guitar stylist Nick Moreira, and are accompanied onstage by backing vocalists Leah Hinton and Christine Moser, known as the "Nectarines". The band won the Boston Hard Rock Rising competition in 2016, was nominated for the 2016 "Rock Act Of The Year" by the New England Music Awards, and was a 2015 finalist in the "Last Band Standing" competition at the Hard Rock. They recently opened for international touring act Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown, the legendary Rusted Root, and a special tribute featuring members of Foghat and Badfinger, as well as being the personal local rock favorite of the Boston Red Sox organization, having been invited to perform before games on several occasions. Rolling Nectar has recorded with renowned producer Phil Greene (Peter Wolf, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger) and recently worked at Woolly Mammoth studio with uber-producer/guitarist David Minehan of The Neighborhoods & Paul Westerberg/Replacements fame. In this day and age, high-quality rock 'n roll bands with uniquely talented members are hard to come by. Rolling Nectar is the genuine article.
The Rupert Selection
The Rupert Selection
The Rupert Selection was born in 2008 as a side project to high school classmates and friends Zak Brown, Reilly Somach, and Peter Crofton. At first just a fun side project, they turned the band into a serious endeavor in 2009, playing dozens of shows in 2010 and releasing their debut self-produced album "Conspiritorium" in early 2011. The band played across New England steadily, focusing primarily on garnering a fanbase in Boston, as well as in their native North Shore area. Since then, the band has continued to write new original material while staying more active than ever, developing a growing and loyal fanbase in the process and playing countless shows throughout New England and beyond. 2016 has been busier than ever, with their first tour in August (Boston, Providence, Philadelphia, New York) another in October (New Jersey, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Delaware), the release of their first official single and self directed music video for “Funeral Party”, airplay on 107.3 WAAF and 100.7 WZLX, and countless shows throughout Boston and the New England area. In addition to playing 40+ shows this year alone, sessions for a full length studio album are in full swing at The Bridge Sound and Stage in Cambridge, MA with producer/engineer Alex Allinson. Their first single is set to be released at the end of November, with the full record to follow in early 2017, supported by extensive touring. With their high energy shows and creative blending of genres, The Rupert Selection is not a band to be missed.
Matt York Music
Matt York Music
Matt York grew up in Foxboro catching virtually every concert held there. He started playing the clubs of Boston as a teenager and became the longtime frontman of indie band, Wide Iris. Wide Iris released four CDs, received airplay on nearly every local radio station and played over 400 shows throughout the Northeast. They appeared in the 2000 WBCN Rock and Rumble. The Boston Globe describes him this way “Matt York knows what rock 'n' roll is supposed to sound like and do: Make you bob your head and pound your fist and forget about everything but the riff, your beer and your bruised heart"
