    Scarlet Sails is a statement. Scarlet Sails is based on believing. Scarlet Sails is about love. It's about what you want and about ways to find it. It's about following through and sticking to your true self. It's about engaging with the ones you love and surrounding yourself with what you love. It's about loving yourself and giving yourself enough. Treating yourself the way you should and not being afraid to move forward. It's about cutting off all that you don't need and loading off the burden brought on to you by society and people who live by inertia. It's about a girl who decided not to wait for her boat and her dreams to sail to her but to build that boat herself and make her dreams come true by sailing it. It's about taking your life in your own hands and making it colorful. It's about being brave. It's about being honest. It's about knowing what you want, going for it and rocking it. NY-based multi-cultural genre-bending Duo Frenchy and the Punk are made up of Hardcore Punk veteran guitarist Scott Helland (bassist of Deep Wound - with J Mascis and Lou Barlow, Outpatients) and French-born singer/percussionist Samantha Stephenson. They pound out their distinctive brand of Cabaret Folk Punk. Helland's signature rhythmic and melodic guitar looping style creates a driving and expansive sonic landscape that perfectly blends with Stephenson's powerful vocals and percussion.

    Despite our best efforts, there are some things we just can’t outrun. Everything catches up to us in the end, no matter what we do to hide from it. It’s a reality that Petal’s Kiley Lotz examines on Magic Gone, the band’s latest full-length album on Run For Cover. Recorded over the course of a month at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA, Magic Gone is a bitingly honest look at adulthood, accountability, responsibility, mental health and the difficulties that go along with each of them. “I was a closeted queer person struggling with chronic mental health disorders,” says Lotz of the three year period that inspired the album. “There comes a moment where all the paranoia, anxiety and pain become too much and you realize the structure you built to survive is no longer is going to serve you. I had to make some very big life changes to make sure I didn’t die. It was not easy taking that level of control over my life after spending many years worrying about upsetting others and being the best and most successful person I could be.” That’s not to say that the last few years have only been negative for Lotz - there were a lot of great moments, too. She moved from New York City to Philadelphia, changed her focus from acting and theatre to music, toured with Julien Baker, Slingshot Dakota, and Kevin Devine, and chose to come out and live openly as queer, which she looks back on as one of the most beneficial decisions she’s ever made. “Coming out was the beginning of a long and continuing process of self actualization, of taking a hard look at myself and the problems I had, and how I could fix them,” says Lotz. Still, the highs of her rapidly changing life weren’t able to outweigh the lows, and in early 2017, Lotz found herself hitting a breaking point. Her mental health was rapidly declining, and after a relapse of suicidality, she made the difficult decision to prioritize her health above all else and move back to her hometown to enter intensive treatment for her major depressive and panic disorders. It was that duality - the valley between the positives and negatives of life that she’d experienced - that inspired Magic Gone and its two halves. Side A, titled Tightrope Walker, features songs Lotz wrote before entering treatment, while Side B, Miracle Clinger, is comprised of songs she wrote in recovery. “I think those two parts of me are what kept me alive,” Lotz explains. “I became so skilled at the act of getting through every day that I trusted that ability, but knew if I slipped I could face a bad end. Still, I couldn’t help but have faith in myself and people and...

    Peter builds, cuts and carves out sound until the creation is something that, when played, pushes the air around you in a way that not just resonates in your ears, but deep down in the soul as well. Peter and his band, Racing Alone, bring Folk Music into the 21st century with songs of love, life, struggles and joy. "I believe in the tactility of music. Every song should be sculpted, word by word, note by note and instrument by instrument until its true sound is revealed." – Peter Harper

    Despite what The Nashville Attitude's band name might suggest, the four-piece is actually based out of New York City, not the country music capital. Still, the band's name doesn't lie, as it does portray a hefty dose of the "Nashville attitude" at every show, bringing classic honky-tonk country tinged ever so slightly with a distinct urban background to venues throughout the tri-state area. The Nashville Attitude formed in the early 2000s and has since established quite the resume performing with respected musicians, and has proven itself not just as a countrypolitan act, but one that stands up just as well next to bands born and raised in the heart of country music territory.

    Sammy Rae is a NYC based singer/songwriter, currently in production of her second studio record. Accompanying herself on piano, Sammy has a unique sound that is youthful, rooted in jazz and classic rock, and sprinkled with hints of blues and R&B.

The eight-piece band, featuring two saxophones, trombone, trumpet, two guitars, bass and drums never ceases to fill a room with energy. Evan Nachimson believes the power of the voice is not in how you sing, rather, what you say. Born in Baltimore, enlightened in Nashville, and toughened in New York, Evan Nachimson's music is all-American. Inspired by revolutionaries like Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Bob Marley, Evan Nachimson's music blends the honesty of folk, with the energy of rock and roll, and style of R&B.

    Born and bred in Brooklyn, David Sumner was brought up on the diverse musical landscape of the New York underground in the 1980's. His influences ranged from the sounds of Kraftwerk, Bambaataa, Man Parrish, Baker Robie, to The Human League, New Order and Depeche Mode. Hooked on electronics, Dave took to the turntables in 1989 at the age of 16 playing early Detroit techno, acid house, house, new wave, electro, and disco. Now more than a decade later, this native son has developed into one of the most internationally respected and influential techno DJ's in the New York scene. Revered for his musical selection, Sumner draws from these earliest of influences to his current unique mix of relentless unforgiving underground techno, keeping the crowd moving on the dance floor while adding an experimental slant sure to please even the most discriminating musical tastes. His uncanny ability to rock the crowd and please the heads both as a DJ and live performer have made him a regular face headlining events and festivals across the US and in 20 countries worldwide alongside some of the world's greatest talent. In addition, he has been booked and held down residencies at all of New York City's top nightspots and parties including Limelight, Twilo, Vinyl, Tronic Treatment, Arc, Sound Factory, Drinkland and Tunnel. David has also been an intricale part of not only the New York/New Jersey Rave scene but the entire US rave scene, headlining some of the nation's biggest events. As a producer and remixer, David has been both critically and publicly acclaimed. Looking back six pseudonyms, nine labels, and thirty-five plus releases later, Sumner's true scope and significance as a major player stand out. His career as a producer began in 1996 with the successful release of his first 12", f(q): The Function of Bandwidth EP for Damon Wild's Synewave label as Function, his best known alter-ego. Since, his music has been appearing regularly on mix compilations, radio show play lists, and charts of many top DJ's like Carl Cox, Sven Vath, Steve Bicknell, Adam Beyer and The Advent, just to name a few. David has gone on to release countless works and started his own imprint and production company, Infrastructure. Infrastructure was designed as a palette to support his own work while including peers like Regis and Ben Sims to do split releases like Inf-06/Symbolism02 and 'The Balance of Power'. In 1998 as DMO, Ulterior Motives, the first release on his own Ctrl. label was played religiously by Body Soul DJ's Danny Krivit and Francois K. and legendary Shelter resident Timmy Regisford...

    MAGICAL MANDOLIN Sunday, July 22nd, 2018, at 5 p.m.         JOYCE RASMUSSEN BALINT / mandolinYELENA GRINBERG / piano  Dear Friends! On Sunday, July 22nd, at 5 p.m., Joyce and I are thrilled to invite you all to join us for a very special evening of MAGICAL MANDOLIN, which will feature some of the most gorgeous works ever written for the unique combination of mandolin and piano. The alluring charm of these two instruments together has inspired many composers including Vivaldi, Beethoven, Hummel, and Calace. The all-Baroque first half of our program will showcase three Baroque delights: Vivaldi's sunny Mandolin Concerto in G Major, RV 532 (ca. 1725), Bach's impassioned Sonata in G Minor, BWV 1001 (ca. 1720), and Handel's ebullient Sonata in D Major, HWV 371 (ca. 1730). In the Classical Era, youthful Beethoven wrote a number of pieces for mandolin and piano during his sojourn in Prague for Countess and mandolinist Josephine von Clary-Aldringen, which include his sublime Adagio in E Major, WoO 43b (1796) and his spirited Andante con variazioni, WoO 44b (1796). The evocative incidental music, Peer Gynt, op. 23 (1875) by the Romantic Norwegian composer, Edvard Grieg, is one of his most beloved and best known works from which he extracted eight movements to make two, four-movement suites. The enchanting Solveig's Cradle Song from Suite No. 2, op. 55 has been arranged for several instrumental combinations, perhaps most beautifully for mandolin and piano. An Italian mandolin virtuoso, luthier and composer, Raffaele Calace, wrote over 200 works for mandolin which include concert works for mandolin solo as well as chamber works for mandolin in combination with other instruments, including piano. The latter category includes his three characterful pieces: a cheerful Rondo, a melancholy Romanza, and the fiery Tarantella. We will conclude our program with Johann Nepomuk Hummel's brilliant Grande Sonate in C Major, op. 37a (1810) - one of the finest and most significant chamber music works ever written for the mandolin and piano, which unfolds in three contrasting movements: an exuberant Allegro con spirito, a heartfelt Andante moderato Siziliano, and a sparkling Rondo finale, full of virtuosic fireworks for both players alike. This special summer salon inspired by the Magical Mandolin is not-to-be-missed!!! Joyce and I wish you a fabulous summer and look forward to seeing you all on Sunday, July 22nd! Dr. Yelena Grinberg, founder and artistic director of the Grinberg Classical Salon Series WHEN: Sunday, July 22nd, 2018, at 5 p.m.           Doors will open at 4:30...

    Recognized as finalists in the renowned Rockygrass Festival band competition in 2017, the Ginny Mules draw from varied elements of American music and heritage, each member bringing their own blend of Appalachian music, Blues, Folk & Bluegrass to the table. The end result sounds a lot like BluesGrass, with a focus on tight vocal harmonies and the raw, bluesier elements that give Ginny Mules their distinctive sound. The band first began to coalesce when Liz Forster (guitar and vocals) met Keenan Copple, the band’s banjo and slide guitar player at a Denver music store in 2013. The pair began playing music together almost immediately. Weekly jam nights with Keenan, Liz and Phil Hanceford (mandolin and vocals) materialized, and the trio began the epic quest for a bass player. On a friend's recommendation, they called on Carbondale native, Sheena Gruber. Forster says, "We caught a lucky break with Sheena. She plays terrific bass, looks and sings like Bonnie Raitt, and is a great fit for us vibe-wise." Rebekah Durham (Juilliard grad and former member of San Fermin), joined the band in 2016 and rounded out the official lineup of Ginny Mules with her incredible 5-string fiddling and original songwriting.

    The Dustbowl Revival is an Americana Soul band with eight full-time members who mash the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal. Dustbowl is touring behind their self-titled, fourth studio album which spent three weeks on Billboard charts, hit #1 on Amazon Americana-Alt-Country, #2 on Amazon Folk, and spent 16 weeks on the Americana radio chart peaking in the Top 20. The album has over 2 million streams on Spotify and the band currently has 260K monthly listeners. The band was founded in 2008 in the bohemian enclave of Venice Beach, California. Over the last five years Dustbowl has become known for their free-flowing and joyous live shows, combining their funk rhythm and brass section with a fast-picking string band section - opening for bands as diverse as Lake Street Dive, Trombone Shorty and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, touring China as a guest of the state department and headlining festivals like Delfest, Floydfest, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and recently Bergenfest (Norway) and Tonder Festival (Denmark). The band received a big wave of attention with their music video that featured famous actor Dick Van Dyke for "Never Had to Go", which garnered over 10 million cumulative views. That video is now airing in an HBO Doc titled "If You're Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast" starring Jerry Seinfeld, Mel Brooks, and Dick Van Dyke. While the band has been known for their old-time and bluegrass roots, they have departed from those styles and evolved more into modern soul music. Now, with Producer Grammy Award-winning Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys) who collaborated on the recent album, Dustbowl Revival brings it on, in the good company of neo-Soul contemporaries such as Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and St. Paul & The Broken Bones. The album delivers eleven hot tracks, dominated by love-triangle funk & soul, tenderized with a nod to the unlikely possibility of true love – i.e. "Honey I Love You", with Grammy Award-winning blues artist Keb’ Mo’ sitting in. This exhilarating new sound jumps out on the album’s opening tracks, “Call My Name” and “If You Could See Me Now.” Drummer Joshlyn Heffernan and bassist James Klopfleisch lay down a righteous groove that trumpeter Matt Rubin and trombonist Ulf Bjorlin supercharge with their big blasts of horns. This Stax-style soul builds to a pair of showstoppers: “Good Egg” and “The Story.” The former is a dynamic number that showcases Liz Beebe’s...

    "Swedish flutist Elsa Nilsson and her quartet will perform traditional Swedish songs often sung on December 13th to celebrate Lucia. This uniquely swedish holiday celebrates the return of light during the darkest time of the year. You can expect some South African, Jamaican, Brazilian and Balkan influences and gingerbread cookies for everyone! Elsa Nilsson's music is profoundly playful and diversely influenced. She believes that the true beauty of music is its capacity to transcend cultural boundaries. She considers all folk music (including jazz) to have a common thread, and that by weaving those threads together, a deeper, more complete understanding among cultures can be reached. This philosophy is evident in her compositional style, subtly blending cross-cultural elements to create a sound that is distinctly her own. Each member of the band brings his or her own flavor to the music. With Nilsson leading on flute, this band also features Jeff McLaughlin on Guitar, Alex Minier on Bass, and Cody Rahn on Drums and Percussion.

    TEVYE SERVED RAW is an evening of stories by Sholem Aleichem. Some of them are Tevye stories, and they're beautiful and dramatic and funny. Some of them are not Tevye stories, and those are just funny. But they all come right from the pen of Sholem Aleichem, who is pretty much universally considered the Greatest Jewish Writer Ever. The Tevye stories are most famous, of course, as the basis of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. But the musical watered them down to make them more acceptable to the Broadway audience of its day. TEVYE SERVED RAW goes back to Sholem Aleichem's original, and it shows you what they left out of FIDDLER. It's about authenticity. TEVYE SERVED RAW goes much deeper into what life in the shtetl -- where most American Jews' ancestors come from -- was really like. Plus you find out what happened to the characters after the plot of the musical ends. TEVYE SERVED RAW is performed in English and Yiddish-with-English-supertitles. And unlike the cast of the Yiddish FIDDLER that's running downtown, the cast of TEVYE SERVED RAW can actually speak the language. TEVYE SERVED RAW has been in development for over two years in Locations from Tel Aviv to Melbourne (Australia not Florida), Kiev (the city in Ukraine, not the diner), Los Angeles, Bethesda, MD, and in Amherst, MA among other places. This is its first run in New York.

    “Jim Caruso’s Cast Party is the best thing to happen to nightlife since prohibition ended.” Think “American Idol” meets “The Tonight Show.” Imagine Martin Short and Liza throw a hip house party around the baby grand…and you’re invited! Cast Party is a wildly popular happening that has brought Broadway glitz and urbane wit to the legendary Birdland in New York City every Monday night since 2003. It is the ultimate spot to mix and mingle with show folk and the people who love them. Cast Party is a hilariously impromptu variety show where showbiz superstars and up-and-comers deliver jaw-dropping musical performances and razzle-dazzle. Legendary showman Jim Caruso guides the entire affair with razor-sharp humor and the unbridled enthusiasm of an uber-fan. Musical Director Billy Stritch holds court at the ivories, along with Steve Doyle on bass, and Daniel Glass on drums...but the real fun starts when the audience participates in the onstage festivities. Broadway legends, jazzers, cabaret divas, starry-eyed tourists and kids right off the bus take to the stage and entertain each other. If you have a voice, a dream and some sheet music, your Cast Party moment just might be at hand. Caruso and Stritch have also taken the show on the road, and celebrated talent in London, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Chicago, Austin, Dallas, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Miami, and Delray Beach, as well as very special all-star events at The Town Hall and Jazz at Lincoln Center in Manhattan. Cast Party has been honored with three BroadwayWorld Awards, a MAC Award, Bistro Award, and a Nightlife Award. “...the place to be for those with a song on their lips.” New York Times “It’s a showbiz mecca.” Los Angeles Times “The gold standard.” Wall Street Journal “Every week, a star or a standard might be born.” Time Out New York “A hot spot where Broadway and Hollywood tip, twirl and hit the mic.” Playbill

    Brenda Carsey is a Los Angeles-based vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Carsey has been studying music and performing since the age of five, from choirs, orchestras, and marching bands to national anthem performances to rock, pop, folk, hip hop, and electronic groups (Feral Kizzy, Cesar Saez), stage shows (Cabaret Versatile), and solo projects (Brenda Carsey & the Awe, Side Show, eminent.ruth). Carsey's primary self-accompanying instruments are piano and guitar. You can currently catch her out playing live solo and with her band Brenda Carsey & the Awe. Brenda Carsey delivers an engaging, energetic show, seamlessly mixing a unique blend of Alternative Soul, R&B, Progressive Rock, and Trip Hop. Carsey has an unmistakable sound that is modern and unique while some how simultaneously a retro call to music from the 1950's, the late 1960's/early 1970's, and the 1990's. Carsey plays both piano and guitar. She performs both solo and as a full band under the name "Brenda Carsey & the Awe". As a band, the group is led by songstress and keyboardist Brenda Carsey and grooved out by the Awe-some rhythm section featuring Matt Brundrett on drums and a rotating line-up of phenomenal musicians. Carsey’s Voice is, in a word, uninhibited, mixing a syrupy sweet sound with a beautiful darkness and a vocal range with a potential of virtuosity. This Los Angeles, CA based artist has played at heavy hitting music festival Lightning in a Bottle (2017), Feed LA Festival (2016), and Echo Park Rising Festival (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017)! Carsey has toured the entire Western US from San Diego to Seattle, to Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and also Nashville and New York. She has grooved and swooned on the stages of The Hotel Cafe (main stage, with her sold-out album release show in July 2017), The Teragram Ballroom, Harvard & Stone (featured resident artist for the month of November 2017), Good Times at Davey Wayne's, The Federal Bar, and The Lost Knight (to name a few). She will stop you in your tracks with poetic lyrics, fluid melodies, engaging chords progressions, funky rhythms, and a voice filled with passion and soul. Carsey's first full-length studio album Solitary Refinement dropped July 16th 2017. The album features the Awe and was engineered and co-produced by Brian Frederick of Hybrid Studios and Stacks FX, who has worked with names like DJ Quik, Whiz Khalifa, Isabella Summers (the Machine of Florence + the Machine), and the Backstreet Boys on their 20th anniversary record.
