Alex Cano is a Folk/Alternative Rock solo artist born and raised in the Hudson Valley, NY, currently residing in Tarrytown. Originally from South Salem, Alex has been studying music since the age of 5. He began his professional music career as a drummer in his mid teens. He has since performed nationwide with numerous projects/artists from the NYC, Hudson Valley, and Central New York regions. Eventually falling in love with songwriting, Alex took up voice/guitar and began crafting his own original music for the several of the bands he was a part of.
Shortly after graduating from Ithaca College, feeling it was time to start something fresh, he began his own solo project. Not long after its launch however, Alex suffered a career threatening and heartbreaking vocal injury and was forced to refrain from singing for over two years. Throughout the extensive roller coaster of a rehabilitation process, he continued writing. The stories from this period in time translated into an emotional batch of songs, becoming the groundwork for his debut record.
Once cleared from injury, Alex brought the new material into the studio and returned to performing extensively both locally and nationally. He has since performed at numerous local and NYC venues including Garcia's at the Cap, Lucy's, Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, Arlene's Grocery, The Cutting Room, The Footlight, and many more.
Alex's sound comes from an eclectic array of influences. His music has been described as a cross between energetic alternative rock, and reflective folk/roots rock with elements of outlaw and alt/country. His baritone voice has been compared to singers such as Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, Eddie Vedder, and Matt Berninger. Most significant musical influences include bands and artists such as The Record Company, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Chris Stapleton, Jamestown Revival, The National, Jason Isbell, The Band, Sturgill Simpson, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson.
Alex's debut record is due for release in late May/ early June 2019. The first two singles "Back Against the Wall" and "Two Steps on the Train" are currently out on all digital platforms. Alex and his band are currently in the middle of a run of East Coast performance dates and will be touring the United States coast to coast in support of the new record from mid July-September beginning in Los Angeles, following the Pleasantville Music Festival.
The Bluechips are a rock band from Westchester County, NY.
Bandmates Jake Albi (Vocals/Drums) and Paul Beladino (Vocals/Guitar) are childhood friends, who have been performing together for 10+ years. Now, along with bassist Tom Davis, the trio are seeking a new musical direction.
They’ve combined their influences to craft a fresh, new, pop yet progressive rock n’ roll sound, sharing songwriting credit, with lead vocals duties split between Albi/Beladino.
The Bluechips music from the 'Armless Man Sessions:' & 'The DAL-TEX' EPs are now available on all streaming platforms.
Dan Zlotnick of Westchester County, NY brings a wide range of influence to his heartfelt Americana style. Listeners of all ages love watching Dan pick and strum his vintage acoustic guitar as he tells stories with his rich voice and thoughtful lyrics. He also rips through guitar leads in his more blues-rockin’ tunes, paying homage to his classic rock heroes. He has rocked the stages of the Paramount Hudson Valley, Pleasantville Music Festival, Tarrytown Music Hall, and Garcia’s at The Capitol Theatre. Dan has also opened multiple shows for Grammy winner Marc Cohn, Top-40 Country Artist Jessica Lynn, and Americana's favorite father, Jim Avett. No matter the venue, audience members leave Dan’s shows feeling like they have a new friend. He is joined for this show by Simon O’Keefe on keyboards.
