Mr. Nick & the Dirty Tricks

Mr. Nick & the Dirty Tricks are one of the most sought after Blues acts in the Northeast. Lead by powerhouse vocalist and unorthodox harmonica ace Nick David, this band boasts a who's who of the New England Blues scene. Having experienced a break out year with their wildly praised CD "Oh Wow!", they were named one of the top 20 bands in Boston, (landing right in between the Dropkick Murphys and the James Montgomery Band). "Oh Wow!" was named one of the top 25 records of the year for the entire country by Alternate Root Magazine.

Four Piece Suit w/The Sitting Ducks

Having created a little universe of music stemming from the original 1990s group, which was mainly Instrumental and relied heavily on the unique Tenor Sax sound of the late David Sholl, Four Piece Suit continually adapts that music and adds new material, often as a guitar trio, with guitarist Milt Reder now contributing vocals to the mix. Original 4PS drummer Seth Pappas and bassist Dean Cassell, all veterans of iconic East Coast bands, provide the “pocket”, that indescribable swing that keeps a select few bands going through the decades.

The Harmaleighs

The Harmaleighs is composed of Haley Grant (Guitar/Vocals) and Kaylee Jasperson (Bass/Vocals). They found a mutual love for folk/americana and started creating music together in early 2013. Their memorable melodies and attention grabbing lyrics will keep you wanting more if their awkward (and hilarious) stage banter doesn't.

Dwight & Nicole

Soulful Blues and Roots act, Dwight & Nicole (fronted by recording artists Dwight Ritcher & Nicole Nelson) has been compared to many legends of our time - Etta James and John Lee Hooker, Mavis Staples and BB King - but have their very own captivating sound.

Lux

Once upon a time, Jazz didn’t take itself too seriously; it was fun and entertaining. The band LUX takes jazz music back to that time, albiet with a modern sound and material, but this is not to say that they can’t get experimental and take things “out” a bit. They are a 4 piece band, that sounds like a 5 piece thanks to  Todd Clancy and his 8-string guitar ( an instrument that is half bass, half guitar) and their sound harkens back to the organ trio’s of the 60’s.
