    Kwame & The Uptown Shakedown

    As diverse and kinetic as the city they call home, Kwame & the Uptown Shakedown have been perfecting their unique blend of soulful rock n’roll since they formed in 2008. A true product of New York City, their music reflects the passion, the energy and the sounds of the city. They stand out - as a multicultural, multigenerational collective whose influences span soul, blues, classic rock, reggae and R+B. Featuring singer/songwriter Kwame Binea, guitarist/songwriter Justin Wilcox, bassist Art Vanterpool, drummer Medley, and saxophonist Quigley , the group is united by a common goal to make simple, soulful, back-to-basics music.

  • Solfunk

    Solfunk

    The band offers a fresh new sound capturing a unique menagerie of mo-town, funk, blues, jazz, and rock & roll genres with the intent of restoring roots into the modern day music scene. Intelligent lyrics and catchy melody lines are the heart of the SOL formula. The band brings danceable tunes, heartfelt ballads, and an element of good old rock n' roll together in a high-energy live show that's sure to provoke a positive reaction from every listener and attendee.

  • Woodbine Falls

    Woodbine Falls

    The atypical, and powerfully emotive sounds of Woodbine Falls draw from the many rivers of influence that comprise it. Represented within are the varied worlds of classical, jazz, blues and rock, combined with an experimental twist. This confluence produces sounds that are flowing and entrancing, with a roaring under current of crashing force. New York City based, Woodbine Falls' unique instrumentation makes for a broad tonal palette. The sultry and distinctive vocals have shades of folk and jazz. The electric guitar stylings are classical in technique and sensibility, with a strong root in blues. With dazzling concert soloist virtuosity, the flute spins out unheard colors and effects. The gravitational pull of stand-up bass and drums set the entrancing grooves and keep it all grounded.
