A little bit about the bands:
T Bone Daddy — TBD is a rockin blues band, plain and simple. Influenced by the sounds of Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Mayer, Eric Clapton and the like, TBD puts its own fingerprints on everything it does. From its colorful renditions of cover tunes to original material, TBD pursues a tone that is uniquely theirs. Born and bred in the Berkshires, TBD has the most fun playing to intimate crowds of music lovers in hill town bars and pubs sprinkled throughout western Massachusetts. Band members Paul Cowan (bass), Tyler Fairbank (guitar, vocals) and Lou Parreault (drums, vocals) have each spent a large part of their lives with instruments in their hands, but are now having more fun than ever with this new found trio.
An international indie jazz-funk-rock collective with a diverse line-up of players on both sides of the Atlantic. The band’s fresh and eclectic sound is the combined expression of the jazz, classical, rock, funk, and avant garde backgrounds of the revolving international lineup of players. From France, Germany, Chile, and the US, these talented and creative improvisational musicians span three continents to create a unique musical expression that both includes and transcends their cultural and musical influences. The sound is a brash combination of jazz virtuosity, funk-rock groove, and raw soul. This US lineup featuring Steve Haase on trumpet, RockOn’s Jeff link and Ben Kohn, with founders – fusion drummer Andrew Cohen and classically trained sax, EWI and flute player Rodrigo Tarraza.
