Bronson Rock plays originals and cool covers from long ago. Fronted by Buzz Gordo, (Big Bad Johns, Gone Native), the band plays a bunch of Gordo originals as well as a host of cool, danceable covers of obscure soul, rockabilly and garage rock classics.
Phantom Pluckers is a dynamic four-piece rock band that combines fresh, original songwriting with high musicianship. Bassist, vocalist and composer Brian Torff leads Phantom Pluckers using his extensive jazz background to craft tight arrangements for vocals, guitar, saxophone, bass and drums. Formed in 2012, the band has played numerous shows in the Northeast, recorded an EP and has released live performance material on YouTube. This new band is very different from most indie bands with its tightly scored sound that incorporates blues, rock, world music and jazz styles.
Brian Q. Torff is a music professor at Fairfield University with Chicago blues-rock and jazz roots. He collaborates with two of his students, guitarist Jamie Debicella and drummer Jon Rivers, along with saxophonist Steve Salcedo in a musical exchange spanning generations. Phantom Pluckers music is high-energy and explosive.
