The YeahTones, Caverns, Talay, Citris
The YeahTones is the tenacious rock ‘n’ roll brain-child of bandleader and frontman Jake Pinto.
Born of a natural healer and a business schemer (read: Florida man), Pinto’s deep-rooted lust for “peaceful” resistance has been long in the making. In 2012, Jake graduated from private university with a degree in music, thousands of dollars in debt and an ample angst for the injustices of the world. Plagued by the typical anger and isolation of a 20 something New Yorker, Jake set aside his pricey jazz education in search of a new more liberating form of expression, enter The YeahTones.
On stage The YeahTones explode with punk energy to deliver the straightforward anguish of Jake’s unassuming songwriting. The band makes audiences thrash and scream then hands out a goody bag of catchy riffs and melodies to take home for later. They do all of this while wearing matching outfits.
The Brooklyn-based band’s debut record, Eviction Notice, due out in October 2016 is the first presentation of their fearless, unpretentious rock ‘n’ roll. Keep an eye out for The YeahTones at a rock bar near you.
CAVERNS is a Rock band from New York. They're raw, and what you see is what you get! The band's members, Nicola Wincenc and Russell Holzman are heavily influenced by a plethora of artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Band of Gypsies, Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more. Caverns has been described as "little terrors that have a knack for toe-curling guitar lines, and heavy psychedelic grooves." They are currently working with renowned GRAMMY-winning producer/engineer Warren Riker on a number of forthcoming releases.
After Caverns cut their teeth for years at residencies at both The Bitter End and The Knitting Factory, they have landed dozens of noteworthy gigs on both coasts including The Highline Ballroom, Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom, Webster Hall, The House of Blues, Bardot/Avalon, and the Marc Jacobs Spring 2016 Runway Show at the Ziegfeld Theater. Since then, they have broken into the festival circuit, playing at events such as the Firefly Festival, POP Montreal, Rock the Blocks Music Festival, Earthfest, and will be appearing at Peach Festival summer 2017.
Talay has been playing iconic New York City venues since her teens, winning over fans with clever lyrics and an infectious on-stage persona. Often drawing comparisons to 90's favorites like Weezer, No Doubt, and Alanis Morisette, Talay's punchy power-pop tunes tell painfully relatable stories of friends, family, lovers, and losers. In 2017, Talay released her self-titled EP produced by Greg Mayo (Delta Rae, Bernhoft) and Zach Jones (Sting, A Great Big World) and mixed by Ducky Carlisle (Demi Lovato, Rooney).
