The Outside Band
Mountain Lake's oldest and foremost banjo-mandolin driven, acoustic electric, country rock jam band.
"The Outside Band”. The group’s members are as eclectic as the music they play. Composed of Lucas Lowenstein, President of SSI North America; Dr. Michael Goldfischer of Hackensack Pathology Associates, LLC; John P. Wyciskala Esq; a partner with the law firm of Inglesino, Pearlman, Wyciskala & Taylor, LLC; Michael “Mack” McAleer, Director of Construction, RBH Group; and Steven Yosh, director of numerous organizations.
The group started as the brainchild of the band’s “Captain” Lucas Lowenstein, who having performed as a singer and guitar player for years, wanted to form a local “Jam Band” to play the songs he knew and liked best. His first recruit was Michael “Doc Mike” Goldfischer, who joined him in sporadic jam sessions on mandolin. Their first impromptu live performance was in the parking lot of a local favorite restaurant. Meanwhile, in a different part of town, Mack (on bass) and John (on banjo) were making their own plans for rock stardom, after John declared 2013 as the “summer of the banjo.” The two forces merged on a fateful bus trip to a concert, and the band was born. The final piece was the addition of Steve Yosh on drums.
Brooklyn-based Sherman Ewing has crafted a dual success story that celebrates tenacity, hard work and faith. A Columbia graduate, he’s an Ivy Leaguer who ended up balancing two distinct and unlikely careers: one as an indie rocker, and another as a dog-walking entrepreneur. As an independent singer/songwriter, he has been compared to Bob Dylan ad Keith Richards and covered in USA Today multiple times, with writer Elysa Gardner noting Ewing’s songs “have a wry lyricism that suggests hard-won emotional integrity.” Sherman is joined by Anthony Krizan on guitar, Muddy Schews on bass, Kendall Scott on keys, John Hummel on drums, and a horn section featuring Tony Peruso (Trumpet), Ben Clapp (Trombone), Chris Fitzgerald (Sax).
