Upstate Rubdown, an acoustic septet from Upstate New York, is a sonic whirlwind of foot-stomping Americana, complete with mandolin, alto/baritone saxophone, cajon, and upright bass, all led by a soaring harmonic trio of powerhouse female vocalists. Drawing from every corner and decade of America's musical landscape, Upstate Rubdown has been described as a "hurricane of sound." The band can land perfectly in any setting, from intimate house concerts to prominent festival stages. The material is innovative and forward thinking, but never at the expense of a great hook or a solid groove. Upstate Rubdown plays music to move your body and soul.

The Breakneck Boys can best be described as an experience: Imagine hiking to the top of a mountain ridge, full moon above, cool summer air moving through the trees. Ahead in a clearing you notice a campfire and hear music rising into the night with the flames. As you move closer you see musicians around the fire picking and howling as if it were their last night on Earth. They notice your approach and motion for you to join them. The music is like nothing you have ever heard before, yet it sounds so familiar, with traces of Jack Johnson and Janis Joplin, Bill Withers and Bob Marley, Ralph Stanley and the Rolling Stones, Muddy Waters and Marvin Gaye, Dylan and Django.
