The Phonies
The Phonies
The Phonies, a 7-piece rock/fusion outfit who hail from Philadelphia, are building a reputation as a fierce live energy band with stunning musicianship. Epic horn lines, biting guitar, highly danceable drums, and mind-blowing time changes are the lay of the land, and there's never a dull moment between them. Bandleader Sean Conlon's songs are at once thought-provoking and vigorous, with a veneer of classic cool that leaves the air electrified. When performing live, it's easy to see the band get captured in the moment, and it's difficult not to join along. They're all about having fun and enticing even the most stoic concertgoers to shake a little booty.
The Max Tribe
The Tribe was born in 2013 when Nashville native Austin Max (Guitar/Vox) united with Austrian born Conner Kessler (Drums) at Berklee College of Music. For a year they developed their psychadelta roots and sound playing around Boston with friends filling in on Bass and keys here in there. Their lineup wasn't solidified until 2016. In 2015, The Max Tribe released their debut single "Tape Machine" backed by a thumping music video. It was featured on "Sounds of Boston" as one of the top 5 releases of the year. Max and Kessler linked up with Noah Lubert (Keys/Vox) and Rafael Minerbo (Bass) in 2016. Noah and Rafa delivered spirit and expansive writing to the Tribe. The Tribe is currently finishing their debut record due early 2017. Together, the Tribe creates a unique blend of psychedelic rock and blues with influences stemming from The Velvet Underground, The White Stripes, The Doors, The Stones, Dylan, and The Beatles.
The Dawn Drapes
The Dawn Drapes is an alternative indie rock trio that formed in early 2011 as the brain child of songwriters Michael Sanzo and Daniel Rice. Early on the group played folk inspired rock and roll with a hint of avant garde. Over the next few months the group gained experience by playing with a rotating group of musicians that brought influences from many different genres, further expanding the music palette of The Dawn Drapes. In May of 2011 the group recorded their first full length self-titled and self-recorded album, during which their sound began to move away from the folk rock genre hinting that something truly unique was on the horizon. In 2012 singer / drummer Greg "Eggy" Gorman joined the band to round out The Dawn Drapes sound. The heavy hitting, yet well thought out drumming style of Eggy, along with his ability to harmonize perfectly with the rest of the group finally completed the band's sound which has influences ranging from Nirvana to Fleetwood Mac. Since then the band has been playing extensively from Washington DC to Southern VA all the while honing their craft and pushing their musical boundaries.
