..The LiQU!D.....flowing from CT straight into your soul. This original funk rock power-trio is comprised of three eclectic knuckle-heads, a bass guitar, a drum kit, a couple of guitars, a looper, some nonsense, some old favorites, some soon-to be new favorites, a whole mess of fun, and a plethora of grooves to move to. Rooted in several different genres of music, the LiQU!D seems to drip its way through Rock, Reggae, Funk, Bluegrass, Jazz, and whatever else it finds itself surrounding itself with. The LiQU!D's fluidity proceeds to intrigue with thought provoking original songs from the maniacal mind of singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Gaetani, fused with ever-enjoyable mastery of the low-end brought to you by the one and only Luke "The Closer" Rutledge. Luke (Bass) reigns over the low end, transcending grooves from interstellar quadrants of the universe......while Lloyd Munroe aka L-III (Drums) proceeds to facilitate your feet into action, ultimately making you shake what your momma gave you. Together they emanate an unexplainable experience that is definitely not to be missed. Do yourself a favor and check this out...................

Dog Star Blue
Dog Star Blue is a New England based quartet blending rock, jam, blues, and funk. Comprised of Joshua Bouchard on guitars and vocals, Joe O'Brien on bass and vocals, Justin Bytell on keyboards and vocals, and Mike Tierney on drums, Dog Star Blue’s singleness of purpose is to delight and enliven audiences everywhere.
Mixing exciting covers & funky originals, Dog Star Blue creates a rhythm inspired voyage for its listeners. A perfect combination of stunning guitar improvisation and composition, the four piece deliver tight vocal harmonies with velvety tones that are signature to their sound.
Dog Star Blue’s journey has been one of hard work, perseverance, and dedication. Dog Star Blue released their first album "Our Way" in 2010 and is currently creating songs for a second.
As a result of their dynamic performance, Dog Star Blue performs regularly throughout the Northeast and has entertained on the main stage at Strange-Creek Music Festival in Greenfield, MA in the spring, and at Wormfest Music Festival in the fall several years running.
Dog Star Blue’s all pleasing sound has entertained audiences as diverse as Metal fans from New Hampshire during the MetalGrass festival and delighted reggae fans recently while performing with Spiritual Rez. Dog Star Blue earned a TV spot on “Solly’s Show”, which was seen throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. Additionally, Dog Star Blue is about to perform for the second time on the Better Connecticut Show in February.
Dog Star Blue represents rock and roll at its best. By all accounts, they have an abundant future ahead. Their plans in the upcoming year include recording a new album, performing at more major festivals, and adding more great venues to expand their audience and share their inspiring tunes.

Experiencing a Paperback show is something you won't soon forget as they take you through a musical journey not often heard in today's music scene. Weaving through rock, reggae, pop, americana and funk all in one night, you will not leave disappointed.
