The Rupert Selection
The Rupert Selection
The Rupert Selection is the creation of Reilly Somach, Zak Brown and Peter Crofton: a trio of longtime high-school friends from Manchester-By-The-Sea, MA. What was initially intended as a fun side project in 2008, soon morphed into a serious endeavor as the band honed their skills with dozens of shows throughout 2010. Conspiritorium, their self-produced, debut album was released in early 2011. The band has since continued to write thoroughly innovative and original material and perform virtually non-stop throughout New England and, most recently, in venues in NYC, NJ, DE, and PA as their fanbase continues to grow. 2016 alone featured the release of their first official single and self-directed music video for “Funeral Party" with another for "Tree Hands" released later in the year, airplay on Boston radio, and more than 40 shows throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic. So far, 2017 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet with the release of a new EP "Baseball Practice" in March that was recorded at The Bridge Sound and Stage in Cambridge, MA with producer/engineer Alex Allinson, finishing as a finalist in the historic Rock and Roll Rumble competition in April, sessions well underway for another EP and dates booked throughout New England and the North East. With their high energy performances and mind-bending blend of genres, The Rupert Selection are a power trio in every sense of the word and not to be missed.

Diablogato
Diablogato
In the spring of 2014, five friends got together in a grimy practice space in Boston to see what would happen. They all had long, diverse rock and roll pedigrees and their record collections were no different. They had no idea what they would do, only what they didn't want to do— anything they had already done before. The sound that developed was not rockabilly. It was not punk rock. It wasn't garage, soul, gothic southern swamp darkness, or straight mid-century American rock and roll…it was all those things. It was the echo of the record collections, the artists, and the aesthetics that they loved.

Last summer found Diablogato at Watch City Studios in Waltham, Mass. The tracks were laid down and made the old fashioned way...on vintage analog gear, straight to the tape with moments of brilliance, inspiration, rough edges, and wonderful mistakes all given the same respect. Released in early 2016, the self-titled debut album is a snapshot of where the band was at that time, a storybook of chapters showcasing the music that they love. The language these five friends had learned to speak as one onstage became clear on that album.

Heading into 2017, Diablogato is hard at work writing songs for a new 7” and full length record, continuing to hit the stage, feeling sanctified pouring it out, and wandering wherever their rock and roll love affair takes them. With Drew on vocals and guitar, Johnny on upright bass, Jesse on drums, Kim on baritone sax, and Charlie on lead guitar Diablogato rumbles down that road fueled by gasoline, larceny, and lust, you are more than welcome to come along for the ride.
