"ULTIMATE MIX TAPE" ft. <br> Little Ugly, Joey Batts & Them

Little Ugly

Little Ugly (winner of "Best Indie Rock Band" at the 2013 CT Music Awards, "Best Musician/Band" in Hartford Magazine's "Best of 2012", and the 2011 Hartford Advocate Grand Band Slam's "Best Rock Band"), the offspring of chief songwriter/singer/acoustic guitarist Michael Day and his collaboration with percussionist Nick Dickinson, and violinist/vocalist Kaia Pazdersky, is a band that authentically thrives in its defiance of classification. The mix of imaginative, introspective lyrics and classically trained musicianship has created arrangements that are connected with the eclectic works of artists such as Mumford & Sons, The Decemberists, Silverchair and Ray LaMontagne- yet they imitate no one. Delightfully unconventional at every melodious interchange, these three musicians have born a live experience that is a valuable reminder of how music can elevate, captivate, and broaden our minds, as well as move our feet.

Joey Batts & Them

After a decade of being in the New England hip hop scene, both with highly respected groups, and as a successful solo artist, Hartford’s own adopted son returns to the stage with a full lineup to get the crowds going, and to let you know that he’s your best friend. Joey Batts isn’t just a talented wordsmith and MC, he’s also one of the most interactive and funniest stage presences around. In a scene where bragging about how big your watch or car wheels are is the norm, who else can get a crowd going while rapping about fighting crime as a superhero, being your wingman, or life in the 860?

Joey Batts and Them are a five-piece alternative hip-hop band, starting in 2011. In 2012, the band reached the current lineup, comprised of Joey on vocals, Tony Volpe and Dan Pilver on guitar, Dave Chapman on bass, and Mike “Beatwiz” Spellman on drums and percussion. With funky grooves, and plenty of hooks, Joey and Them can turn any show or event into an outright party. And with shows all over New England, the Northeast, and beyond, be sure to check them out, and you can be the best of friends!
