The Melody Allegra Band with Linda Pitmon on drums
Award-winning fiddler Melody Allegra Berger has been playing violin since the age of five and is classically trained in both violin and voice. She fell in love with bluegrass/old time music around 7 years ago and has been raising a ruckus in the NYC area ever since, branching out into all manner of folk genres. In addition to regularly playing at regional favorites, Melody has gotten to rock out on top of Rockefeller Center and at the renowned Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco. The Melody Allegra Band flits about effortlessly between musical genres, bringing home the good music with capricious virtuosity and gritty soulful singing.
Ring in 2014 with cold beer, good cheer, and Your Ex-Girlfriends, an all-girl, all-blonde country cover band based in New York City. Their weapons of choice are vocals, guitars, fiddle, piano, bass, and drums, and they cover everything from Dixie Chicks and Dolly Parton to Big Mama Thornton and Little Big Town. With bluegrass, blues, honky tonk, and a bit of rock and roll thrown into the mix, spending an evening with Your Ex-Girlfriends has never been so much fun. Check them out at www.YourEx-Girlfriends.com.
Karen and the Sorrows with Tami Johnson on drums
Brooklyn alt-country band Karen & the Sorrows play “soaring tributes to lost love and... gentle and charming ballads” (Neville Elder, No Depression). Their debut EP Ocean-Born Mary is a four-part ghost story of “allusive, attractive but distantly menacing songs... Country keeps evolving, and Karen & the Sorrows are taking it to a place it’s never been before, a good and creepy one.” (New York Music Daily) The Sorrows are also hard at work helping to create Brooklyn’s burgeoning queer country scene by co-producing the annual Gay Ole Opry festival and the Queer Country Monthly series at Branded Saloon.
