After nearly two years and almost a dozen skillful musicians, Cincinnatiʼs The Pinstripes release their pop/reggae/soul masterpiece I, an album that breaks down genre barriers from a band that has been said to “change your perception.” {Cincinnati Citybeat}

The band, led by multi-instrumentalist Michael Sarason (lead vocals, tenor saxophone, organ, piano, flute, percussion), is literally a whoʼs-who of the bountiful Cincinnati music scene. Showcasing an unparalleled group of musicians that are astonishingly skilled beyond their years (most members are in their early to mid 20s), The Pinstripes have been actively performing and touring since 2003. Although the band has seen some positive adjustments, there is no denying that the current lineup, featuring Chris Grannen (Bass + Stick Bass), Matt Kursmark (Electric + Acoustic Guitar), Leonardo Murcia (Trombone + Vocals), John Bertke (Drums + Percussion) and Sam White (Trumpet + Vocals), is undeniably the best to date.

I is the third full-length studio album from The Pinstripes, and is by far the best at showcasing the bandʼs flexibility of dynamics and songwriting. This multi-genre masterpiece encompasses every wave of ska and reggae, all while floating seamlessly into the worlds of pop and soul, providing a feast of musical styles that will surely captivate any open-minded appreciator of quality music. Highlighted tracks include the incredibly catchy “Might Be Her Fool” (#1), the hook-laden “Mother” (#5), or the harmoniously soulful “Do What You Want” (#11). Guest appearances on the recording include Anthony Abbinanti, Diedrich Jones, Casey Weissbuch and Benjamin Pitz.

“Throw out all the standard Rock crit hoohah; the Cincinnati sextet takes the raw ingredients of Studio One Reggae, first-, second- and third-generation Ska and an absolute flawless sense of Soul, seeds it, stems it and rolls it into an enormous spliff thatʼs nothing short of pure, unadulterated exhilaration.” {Brian Baker, Cincinnati Citybeat}

The Guitars

Mudpies are Forrest Horn (vocals), Marc Raia (guitar), Mike Reeder (bass), and Paul 'Walter' Sketch (drums). The Pies have been rocking the No. KY/Cinci area for almost 12 years now without a change in band lineup. A sonic collision of The Who, Aerosmith, U2, and Neil Young - the Pies put forth Rockmusic, Blues, and Soul. The Mudpies were most recently nominated for CEA Best Blues Band award, and have played with the likes of Dick Dale, Los Lonely Boys, and Eric Johnson. The Mudpies are quite well known for being extremely attractive.. 5bucks is 5bucks.

pedals and cymbals and vocals and guitars, lots of bass guitar and a few literary references.

The Yugos use ’70s Punk and New Wave as a springboard to launch into the mosh pit of its own unique creative process. From 2011’s self-titled debut to 2013’s extraordinary Life is Awesome and Then You Live Forever to last year’s single track tease “Follow You,” The Yugos deftly weave the stuttering time signatures of early XTC and Talking Heads into the dark Pop ruminations of The Cure and Psychedelic Furs, and then filter it all through the band’s own contemporary musical/cultural perspectives until it is recognizable only as The Yugos. Onstage, the band members careen off the walls and each other like pinballs that have been shot at the flippers from a pistol while maintaining some semblance of control. And that’s really all The Yugos require to get the job done.

Molly Sullivan

With the promise of a dynamic set, Sullivan's sonic palette incorporates folk, pop, and experimental values with lush vocal-scapes, catchy melodies, and heart-tugging, honest lyrics. Now working with a loop station and several instruments, what-would-be standard ballads and pop tunes have become something denser and haunting.
