The Rainbow Girls
*Rainbow Girls is a group of 5-6 female musicians who write and perform original material with roots in folk, americana, gypsy, funk, soul, and rock n'roll. In addition to their soaring 4 part harmonies, these ladies switch back and forth amongst a multitude of instruments including, but not limited to: guitar, ukelele, accordion, harmonica, banjolele, mandolin, dulcimer, bass, cello, piano, melodica, recorder, kazoo, washboard, djembe, drum kit, and stomp-tap percussion. Born in an underground open mic night in Isla Vista, called "Bean Night," they began as an acoustic act, busking around the farmers markets of California before they hit the streets of Europe for a summer of couch surfing and busking. Since their return, they have evolved into an electric gypsy-americana-stomp-folk band, complete with drums, bass, and a whole lotta stompin'. May 26th marks the release of their long awaited first, official studio album "The Sound of Light," a 16-track album full of originals, soul-queefs, and bonafide instrumentation. Catch em' at SoHo before they take off again this June for a summer of UK festivals and tours through Europe!

Saint Anne's Place
Saint Anne's Place is a musical family tree, with deep blues, rock and soul roots and branches that reach into the spacey sounds of the future. Just one listen and it becomes very clear that these boys are blood. Their relentless energy is nothing short of contagious both live and on record. Consisting of brothers Jacob Cole (guitar/vocals), Sam Cole (drums) and their cousin Joel Martin (bass). The band initially formed in August 2009, but hit its stride with the addition of Martin in May 2010, at which time they quickly began honing their unique sound and live show – a raw, energetic and audience-centered blend of danceable soulful fuzz rock with some psychedelic elements.
Marty O'Reilly & The Old Soul Orchestra
O'Reilly began his musical journey as a blues guitar player, with his ear pressed close to the ancient hiss in the works of Blind Willie Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt, John Lee Hooker, Charlie Patton, and Leadbelly. Through extensive listening and studying of the early delta greats, O'Reilly developed a unique foundation onto which he would incorporate themes from influences in other musical veins such as John Fahey, Nick Drake, John Vandiver, and Tom Waits. Whether it be his original pieces, or his renditions of old American classics O'Reilly tells his story through an old and soulful voice, propelled by a sense of authentic emotional adrenaline.
When performing with his trio, O'Reilly is backed by Jeff Kissell on the Double Bass and Chris Lynch on the fiddle. Their versatile musicianship, and soulful chemistry help to expand O'Reilly's songs into pieces that drive like a ten pound hammer, or float like feather and flow seamlessly in-between.
