Named the #1 band to follow by Come To Woodstock magazine, Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones are the Hudson Valley's premier rockabilly, rhythm & blues, retro rock n' roll outfit. With the release of their fully crowd-funded debut album, Luck Maker, a music video for their single Whiskey Pick (official selection of the Woodstock Film Festival, and in WDST's top 100 songs of 2014) and a relentless performance and touring schedule, it has proved to be an exciting time for the Ark-Tones.

Born from a hybrid of Lara's former Rockabilly band The Champtones, and upright bassist Matt's international Psychobilly act The Arkhams, The Ark-Tones hit the ground running in 2012 with the addition of Chris Heitzman on guitar and Dave Tetreault on drums. This fun-loving bunch packs the dance floor with their own original musical offerings in the vintage style, as well as re-workings of Rockabilly, Rock 'n' Roll and Rhythm & Blues classics and standards.

Purple k'niF plays Maximum Surf & Twang - all-instrumental surf/hot rod/juvenile delinquent rock ‘n’ roll. They are: Baker Rorick (red bass guitar), Ted Lawrence (blue lead guitar), Johnny Teagle (orange lead guitar) and Doug Wygal (black drums). The band shares a love of cool vintage music and collectible instruments. Rorick hosts the yearly Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase at the Bearsville Theater; Teagle is the author of “The Fender Amps Book - The First 50 Years” - and a former columnist for Vintage Guitar magazine; Wygal is owner of Rocket Number 9 record store in Kingston, a consultant (and former V.P. of A&R) to Sony Music - an avid vintage drum collector, and his drumming credits include The Individuals, Paul Collins Beat, The Wygals, and Beat Rodeo to name a few; Lawrence owns Stockade Guitars in Kingston, NY and was a founding member of NYC instro bands, The Supertones and The Human Tornados.
