    The Humble Beginnings Band is the product of 3 like minded musicians putting their own spin on music that they know and love. Mark Ciacelli, Jack McKissick and Pete Weston bring out music you know and tweak it, just a little so it becomes their own. The Humble Beginnings Band was formed when the three of us found ourselves collaborating and enjoying the sounds we made. Our sound is a mixture of styles, we like to call it "hoopjack". We take elements of classic rock, the blues, new alt-country and Americana and bend it slightly, making it our own without losing the charm of the original sound. Two guitars and a bass, three part harmony, special songs for special people. Everything we do is done with a smile and a laugh...and always with our own flair!

    Nate Gross

    There are so many great guitar players out there today.  We have the world at our fingertips and have access to every learning resource we can imagine but what is skill without soul? Nate Gross is an old soul.  At 35 years old, he has accomplished great success in the industry playing the styles that have been set aside as a new generation of pop music takes over our ears.

    The Blues.  Jazz.  Traditional Country.  R&B. Americana.  All these elements make up the musical landscape of the 20th Century but seem to be lost until now. Nate Gross fuses these styles together like a cross country trip down route 66. Like Kieth Richards once said, "If its not about the Blues, then why bother?" Today, Nate has reached back to his roots and is exploring his love of the Blues more than ever. From an audience of over 30,000 people at The Taste of Country Music Festival to touring up and down the east coast, Nate has played for some of the best audiences a musician could hope for.

    Sharing the stage with Dickey Betts, Anders Osbourne, Honey Island Swamp Band, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Big Sams Funky Nation, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Commander Cody, The Kentucky Headhunters, Blackberry Smoke, and Many more, Nate has paid his dues. As we head in to the Summer months, Nate looks forward in reaching a new audience as he explores his love and passion for the Blues.  See you out there!

     

    The Tomahawks

    We start with the blues and move forward from there. Our particular brand of blues and level of musicianship make for an entertaining show.

    Donny Wilkins (keyboard, guitar, harmonica, scrim-management, and vocals), Cookie Baker (bass, haiku, and vocals), Cody Carman (guitar, face-painting and vocals), Mike Ricciardi (drums and sarcasm)...

    The Gunpoets

    Off the beaten path, nestled in the deep gorges of Ithaca, New York, there are whisperings of a musical revolution in the air. The streets are abuzz as the new school hip hop sound of The Gunpoets echoes throughout the hills and valleys of the musically rich, small upstate town, and far beyond, capturing hearts all over the region. Heavy bass, hard hitting drums, silky smooth keys and sexy guitar licks sweep audiences away as listeners find their bodies unable to resist the explosive rhythms. Add turntables and some microphones? Well, let's just say people won’t know what hit ‘em.

    With partner in rhyme Jayhigh by his side, front man Rising Sun owns the stage and captivates the crowd at every twist and turn. To witness The Gunpoets in action is to see live rap music at its best! And their display of passion and energy is indeed a sight to behold. Powerful, positive, peaceful and at times political, they can work fans into a frenzy with one song and seduce them into a trance with the next. The Gunpoets seamlessly fuse hip hop with pop, rock, funk and a slew of other genres to bring the world their own unique flavor and brand.

    The Gunpoets have shared stages with artists and bands such as Arrested Development, Talib Kweli, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Balkan Beatbox, Midnite, John Brown’s Body, Donna the Buffalo, Sim Redmond Band and many more. In 2012, they released their highly anticipated sophomore LP, "Come With Us," an album stuffed to the rafters with catchy tunes and cleverly crafted rhymes that showcases the bands versatility and musicianship. "Come With Us" won several local music awards including best album and best song. "Shoot the Stars," their debut album (2010), won the same awards. The band is currently working on their third studio release and plans to drop their first live album this summer. Whether they're on the road rocking crowds or in the lab working on their latest concoctions, they're making music around the clock and loving every minute of it.

     

    Mike Davis and the Laughing Buddha Episodes 

    "The Laughing Buddha Episodes are the garden of my soul in music form." With Mike at the helm, his flowing cast of LBE Family includes: mainstay and African tribe Bobby Tousignant (ask him about the 60's), funk commander and jazz devil Tom Westcott, the keytar stylings of the Reverend Mike Melnyk, John "Is That a bass in yo pocket?" Jones, David Burch (pianist from Marky Mark and the funky bunch), Mark "Don't call me Funky Bitch" Sherwood, and an infinite smorgasbord of the yet-manifested.

    The energy of rock n’ roll is impossible to categorize – mercurial, specific to its beholder and profoundly reflective. From the Binghamton, New York music scene comes Driftwood, a band with a rock n’ roll soul and a folk art mind. Carving out a name for themselves with electrifying live performances, they bring one of the most unique, raw sounds to the Americana/roots music scene. Incorporating upright bass, banjo, acoustic guitar and violin, the ghost of traditional American folk music lives in their palette. But the melodies, the harmonies and the lyrics are something else entirely. “We started off playing rock in high school. Then studying jazz and classical music in college. Then we dove headfirst into folk and bluegrass. At some point I guess we kind of met in the middle”, says guitarist/songwriter Dan Forsyth. Drawing on aspects of everything from 0ld-time recordings to 1960’s R&B, the music is crafted to serve the songs. With fast-growing audiences singing along at live shows, it’s easy to tell the primary focus is on song. “We recognized early on that one of our strongest points was songwriting. The greatest songs transcend genre and time and this was one of the motivating ideas behind the band at the start”, says banjo player/songwriter Joe Kollar. Trading lead vocals between Forsyth, Kollar and violinist Claire Byrne, the group’s stage dynamics are as captivating as the songs. “I give so much of myself when I play because I deem it necessary in order to do the music justice”, says Byrne, whose violin-shredding performances galvanize fans. Songs or shredding, “There’s a reason people won’t let them off the stage”, says Jess Novak from The Syracuse New Times.

    Bess Greenberg is a singer-songwriter and visual artist based in Binghamton, NY. With rich, warm vocals and open hearted lyrics, Greenberg performs on upright bass and a vintage hollow body electric guitar. Her songs build in passionate swells, and her conviction is a reminder that our greatest strength can be found in vulnerability.

    The Blind Spots

    The Blind Spots
    This all original, female-fronted, five-piece moxy rock band from Ithaca, NY is driving hard at bigger things and has been busy building an airtight justification for all the buzz surrounding it, both in its hometown and throughout the region.  The band gets better and better, with its solid-as-a-rock rhythm section, eclectic library of vintage keyboard sounds, bold and inventive electric guitar stylings, electrifying lead vocals from force of nature Maddy Walsh who continues to reach new heights at every show, and uplifting, infectious songs that leave audiences humming.

    The group has matured at an incredible rate, but its members all attest that the recent recognition they’ve garnered comes not from luck but from some seriously hard work.  “We put in have a lot of hours together,” says lead guitarist and co-founder Mike Suave.  “We’re lucky to have a group of such dedicated people working toward a common goal and all thinking about the future.”  It’s the dedication to consistently writing new material and rehearsing it and the shared love of the music the band members make together that continues to propel The Blind Spots forward and set them apart.

    Hot Dogs and Gin
    The 5-piece version of Doug & Eamonn Hubert! Offering a range of blues & rock. We know, you're wondering what's with the hot dogs & gin, right? Well, there's a funny story behind the name. Doug's parents are both retired teachers, and a family friend-- also a teacher-- used to always ask the kids when they were over for dinner with their parents, "Want some hot dogs and gin?" as a joke. We think the name is an accurate reference to the four older guys and one elementary school kid who make up the band. Plus, it's just plain fun to say "Hot Dogs & Gin"! And who doesn't love those two staples, maybe not together, but still?!

    Fair City Fire

    FAIR CITY FIRE FORMED IN AUSTIN, TEXAS IN JULY 2014. FCF SET OUT TO REALIZE THEIR GOAL OF PERFORMING GROOVE-ORIENTED, IN-YOUR-FACE, ALL-ORIGINAL ROCK AND ROLL.

    THEY INDIVIDUALLY DRAW INFLUENCES FROM ROCK AND ROLL, BLUES, ALTERNATIVE, AND SOUL TO CREATE THEIR MEMORABLE SOUND. FAIR CITY FIRE’S DEBUT EP, SAY IT LOUD, WAS RELEASED IN MARCH 2015 AND WAS FOLLOWED BY THE SAY IT LOUD NATIONAL TOUR, MAKING STOPS IN HOUSTON, NEW ORLEANS, NASHVILLE, INDIANAPOLIS, CLEVELAND AND BINGHAMTON, NY.

    ON APRIL 1, 2016, FAIR CITY FIRE RELEASED THEIR FIRST FULL LENGTH ALBUM, THE SIMPLE TRUTH, FEATURING 10 NEW SONGS PRODUCED BY BENJAMIN ALAN LEVY. IN OCTOBER 2016, THE BAND COMPLETED THEIR SECOND NATIONAL TOUR, HITTING 14 VENUES IN 15 DAYS. THE TOUR INCLUDED THEIR FIRST STOPS IN CHICAGO, NEW YORK CITY, CHARLOTTE, AND ATLANTA.

    THEIR GOAL IS PRETTY SIMPLE - PUT ON THE MOST UNFORGETTABLE, ENERGETIC, AND FUN SHOW THAT THEY CAN EVERY SINGLE TIME... AND TO ROCK YOUR FACE.

    The Smokin' Crows 

    The Smokin’ Crows are a dirty blues-rock band originating in Binghamton, NY. The band’s influences range from North Mississippi Hill Country blues musicians to The Allman Brothers, Clutch, The Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin and many others. The band members’ wide ranging and unique influences can be heard throughout The Smokin’ Crows original tunes. To classify them into one genre of music would be an injustice. Originals like Black Water Hurricane and Blackjack, Craps and Bones fall in to the Hill Country and dirty blues genre, whereas songs like Rust Belt Highway and The Shadow and The Crow are jam rock influenced, meanwhile, songs like 21 Guns, Poker with the Devil, and Still Reminds Me are rock influenced. A combination of originals and “Crowified” cover tunes is what gives The Smokin’ Crows their unique sound. Their “Crowificaton” of songs such as Sympathy for the Devil, Little Red Rooster, King Bee and Black Betty are truly unique and will change your view on how covers can be played.

    Bendher

    Bendher is central New York's premiere rock band.

    Larry, Don, Fletch and Rob have years of experience and have traveled from California to New York in various bands along the way. Such acts include the Riflebutts, Fester, Rip Tyed and many others. Bendher is loud and Bendher is proud.
    Their original tunes such as "Black Dress Beauty Queen" and "Here and Now" will be instantly identified with their unique sound of smoking guitar licks, driving bass, thunderous drums and vocal harmonies lead by their entertaining and energetic frontman.
    Don has been beating on the drums since he was a teenager influenced from the likes of John Bonham and Neil Peart.
    Fletch has been playing guitar since his high school days drawing inspiration from Robin Trower and Jimmy Page. Fletch has described his playing style as “Pentatonic Wanking” using his own unique style of covering rhythm and tossing in speed licks.
    Larry on bass is a straight up bottom rocker, driven by rockers Jack Bruce, John Enwisel and Gene Simmons.
    Rob joined this motley crew to complete this high energy band. From a serpentine slither of Axl, to an out and about crowd wanderer, the man with the megaphone is full of energy and wit to make sure everyone is having the best time. Rob says he's most influenced by Myles Kennedy and Brent Smith.
    Recently they just wrapped up the first 4 tracks of their upcoming debut record. Recording under the Nozen Glazzes label and produced by Grammy nominated Lonnie Park and world renowned singer John West .
    Together they put on one memorable show after another. Coming to a town near you, experience this "Aerosmith meets Buckcherry" in your face show!

    Merkley & Morgan

    Chris Merkley and Stiv Morgan have collaborated together on music for over 15 years. As an acoustic duo, Merkley & Morgan draw inspiration from blues, folk, country and American roots music traditions with the help of acoustic and resonator guitars, stomping feet, harmonica and harmony vocals.
    In 2006, Merkley & Morgan shared song writing duties on a self-produced album entitled "Ordinary Days".  The album received airplay throughout the central New York area and internationally in Europe, featuring the duo's signature mix of acoustic blues, rock and Americana music.
    In the winter months of 2010 and 2011, the two were joined by drummer Chad J Dean at Windy Castle Studios to record Morgan's debut solo album, "When it Rains" and Digger Jones' debut album "All Growed Up".  They are currently playing acoustic and electric shows in the New York area in support of the albums.

    Watch Merkley and Morgan here!!!!

    The Gravelding Brother's Band

    We are from Upstate New York around the Binghamton area. We have a long collective history of experience and musical abilities. We like a good groove, lots of jamming and killer guitar work on top of honest vocals. The GBB has it roots in a local band called "Rusty Still". At places like the Blue Moon, The Barleycorn and T.J O'Malleys we began our live playing in the mid 80's thru the early 90's with Nick, myself and our childhood friend and drummer Jamie Lane. After Jamie's tragic passing in 1994, Nick began to play full time in his College band, Frostbit Blue, and we drifted apart musically. Recently at a one-off show in Jamie's Memory, we decided to do some local gigs around here...Thus began the Gravelding Brothers Band.
     Nick's command of the vocal stylings of Greg Allman, Doug Gray and Ronnie Van Zant allow us to play a wide range of southern rock favorites including, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker, Outlaws, The Allman Brothers and the like. Nick is also the lead vocalist & guitarist in a very popular New York State Band originally hailing from Oswego called Frostbit Blue. Nick's guitar playing is also one of the strong points of the band. His influences range of course from Duane Allman, Toy Caldwell, Hughie Thomasson, Dicky Betts, Eric Clapton as well as many others.
    My playing, Scott Gravelding, also comes from the same fertile rock guitar ground of the 70's with the added influences of Jeff Beck, lot's of Blues players..ie..the 3 Kings (BB, Freddie and Albert) and SRV and some good 80's metal players like Randy Rhoads and Eddie Van Halen. 
     Our combination in guitars is always easy as brothers and we strive to seamlessly weave our playing into the context of this band. With his ability to deliver solid beats no matter who he’s working with, Gary Armstrong’s versatile style and impressive high vocal range allow us to venture where we normally wouldn’t go. He has performed with Carl Dixon (former lead singer of the Guess Who and Coney Hatch), Johnny Petillo (producer and former member of Danny and The Juniors), Karl Probst (one the originators of Dueling Pianos) in addition to performances with current members of Grand Funk Railroad’s founder Mark Farner’s  band Nr’G,  Trans Siberian Orchestra and Foghat along with former members of Royal Hunt (Denmark) and Lynch Mob.
Brother Benny's bass playing is always grooving, melodic and rumbling in the great tradition of Berry Oakley, Jack Bruce, Paul McCartney and others. Benny is the owner of a local music store called "Music City" and has played with many people including his band "Brothers of the Road". His good time feel and world class musicianship keeps us rooted and is always a potent sound in our mix. Benny is also the bass player in Frostbit Blue as well.

     

    Nick Gacioch

    Local musician from Broome County, playing acoustic/electric gigs, generally playing southern/classic rock, and country.

    The Warp / The Weft 

    The Warp/The Weft, active since 2012 in and beyond New York's Hudson River Valley, has earned praise for its uniqueness and song-crafting from casual and devoted listeners alike. Blending traditional and avant-garde styles, the warmth of a good wool sweater and the sometimes-bleak cold of an upstate winter, the progressive folk and psychedelia that the band brings to bear (compared to Fairport Convention and Jethro Tull) is propelled by poetic lyrics and a "spirit-conjuring," lilting tenor that "puts Murphy alongside Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg as one of the most captivating high-register voices in rock today" (Ron Hart, Chronogram). 2017's Mapping an Absence (July 29, 2017, Admirable Traits Records) introduces bassist Trevor Larcheveque, whose vocal harmonies help to anchor the band firmly in the chamber category.

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. Come rock with us!!

    Hot Dogs and Gin

    The 5-piece version of Doug & Eamonn Hubert! Offering a range of blues & rock. We know, you're wondering what's with the hot dogs & gin, right? Well, there's a funny story behind the name. Doug's parents are both retired teachers, and a family friend-- also a teacher-- used to always ask the kids when they were over for dinner with their parents, "Want some hot dogs and gin?" as a joke. We think the name is an accurate reference to the four older guys and one elementary school kid who make up the band. Plus, it's just plain fun to say "Hot Dogs & Gin"! And who doesn't love those two staples, maybe not together, but still?! We play a wide range of blues and rock such as the Eagles, Allman Brothers, Bon Jovi, Jimi Hendrix, America, Rolling Stones, etc.
