The Humble Beginnings Band is the product of 3 like minded musicians putting their own spin and flavor on the music that they know and love. We are influenced greatly by many great musicians; Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Bob Wills,Ryan Adams, The Band, any number of Bakersfield artists, Eric Clapton, BB King...too many classic rock players to mention.
We have eclectic musical tastes, reflected in our album (from straight-up blues and blues-rock to Latin rock, folk-rock, and even reggae), and in the covers we love to play. At our live shows we focus on rippin’ rock and blazing blues, but regularly play all genres including R&B, country, and even, on occasion, a little rap.
Hi-Way Fruit Market is a Classic Rock Band...Mark on Bass, Jamie on Guitar, Pete on Drums, Kevin on Keyboards and Angela on Vocals. Our name was taken after a business that operated in Vestal for many years. Actually, we're really paying homage to the music store, The Guitar Center, which was located upstairs over the Hi-Way Fruit Market. Most of the band is made up of family members, all of whom spent their youth growing up in that music store, so the band's name has lots of memories and legend behind it.

From outlaw country to Pink Floyd, Tim Ruffo’s wide range of influences creates a sound that is uniquely his own.
Tim grew up listening to his mother play guitar and sing old country songs around a campfire. Those songs gave him his exposure to music as an outlet and expression of life, whether it is during hard times or times to party hard.
Binghamton may be a cloudy city, but overcast breeds beauty, and when it comes to the arts, there is no shortage. We are a band composed of four musicians looking to shed a little light on a bleak world. Look out for our song “New Life” on Binghamton’s alternative station 100.5 The Drive!
In the past six years, Tom Jolu, (a singer/songwriter from Upstate New York) has recorded two albums, toured the north east with a full band, and has even been featured on a local radio station. But even though he has done all of these things, he still felt like something was lacking. He felt like he was doing these things for someone else, but couldn't put his finger on who that person was. And although he was proud of these accomplishments, something didn't feel right.
That was, of course, up until this past August, when he stripped everything down to only the essentials and started writing. He wanted to go back to what it felt like when he first started making music, and after a month of writing and recording, he self produced his new EP called, "What You're Striving For." Since then he has wowed audiences with his unique one man band, blues-infused, style of folk.
“Donna The Buffalo is from central New York state, not Louisiana, but this widely loved quintet has woven that joyful, hip-shaking zydeco pulse into the DNA of its sound, and leaders Jeb Puryear and Tara Nevins have wrapped that core vibe with hopeful, mellow lyrics.” --Music City Roots, Craig Havighurst
Donna the Buffalo just passed the marker as their 25th year as a band and have proven to be a consistent purveyor of American music. What’s the recipe? To be sure, it’s infused with more spices than you’ll find at a Cajun cookout by way of a southern-fried, rockin’ country old-time jamboree. “For the dizzying array of styles and genres with which they work, Donna The Buffalo maintain a surprising level of consistency. The New York-based band has played around with folk, zydeco, and many other musical ideas over the course of their 25-year career, but they retain a sharp focus that has helped them create some truly lasting music,” writes Elmore Magazine.
Donna the Buffalo is Jeb Puryear (vocals, electric guitar) and Tara Nevins (vocals, guitar, fiddle, accordion, scrubboard) joined by David McCracken (Hammond organ, Honer Clavinet & piano), Kyle Spark (bass) and Mark Raudabaugh (drums). “It's been really fun with this lineup,” Puryear says. “You get to the point where you're playing on a really high level, things are clicking and it's like turning on the key to a really good car. It just goes.”
Bess Greenberg is a singer-songwriter and visual artist based in Binghamton, NY.

Previously of The Falconers and Milkweed, Greenberg debuted as a solo performer in the summer of 2016.
When most people think of upstate New York, they either imagine bucolic landscapes or working-class towns. As natives of Binghamton, the members of Driftwood hail from a working town, but play music rooted in the land, leaning alternately into folk, old-time, country, punk, and rock, depending on their personal moods and their songs' needs.

Anyone who has heard their studio releases also knows that they can refine this complex sonic force with maturity and clarity that allows each composition to blossom to its fullest.
