Brian Donohoe Quintet
We're a band and music production crew from Austin. We like funk and jazz. We also like rock and roll. Mostly we like writing and playing original music that makes us feel something.
The Laws were created to share music made in the basements of New Haven over the past 3 years. Drawing from influences ranging from classic rock, prog, funk, blues and jam-rock, they deliver a familiar sound that you’ve never heard before. With a driving, high-energy live show, the Laws put a modern spin on the classic rock experience that is bound to get you moving. LISTEN
The Nevermind Orchestra (Nirvana Cover Big Brass Band)
The Nevermind Orchestra uses the raw power of a New Orleans-style brass band to reinterpret the raw power of Nirvana. You won't just hear power chords and rock beats (though you will), you won't just hear traditional second line grooves (though you will), and you won't just hear beautiful brass chorale arrangements (though, guess what, you will!). You will hear Nirvana in a way you've never heard before, and we guarantee you it will excite you just as much as Kurt, Dave, and Krist did back in the day. Be sure to listen to our brand new EP!
Dubbed a "rootsy, soulful troubadour" by Time Out (London), Jeremiah is a Jersey boy with a Southern heart. He currently performs both under his own name, and with good friends in The Ramblers, an Uncle Tupelo-esque alt-country band in Brooklyn. When not performing his own tunes, he's often playing lead guitar and steel for other artists. The son of a rabbi, Jeremiah grew up with his parents' LP records and a great encouragement to be who he wanted to be. He started working in NYC recording studios and making his own music, by any means necessary, at age 17. The Ramblers have had the great honor of opening up for Levon Helm, and play in NY often, including packed shows at The Living Room, Mercury Lounge, Rockwood Music Hall, and Joe's Pub. The Ramblers recently performed at the CMJ and Great South Bay music festivals in New York.
"Birnbaum's music, painted with melodic vocals, rolling beats, chiming guitar and lush piano, recalls the sound of The Band as well as more contemporary alt. country artists like the seminal Uncle Tupelo and always-stellar Lucinda Williams." Nate Schweber, Patch.com
Wally Nichols first got into a band at Brown University where he was a student. He played bass because no one else would. He then toured around the country with his soft/ pop rock band and almost ran The Subdudes's tour bus off the road (by accident) with his tour bus. Not good. After 7 years of working for Atlantic Records (radio promotion), he moved to the country and now plays country leaning, pop rock. He is in pursuit of the perfect 4 minute story set to music!
