The Aerolites, Named By Strangers, The Eames Brothers Band

This event is 21 and over
The Aerolites began as the mutual brainchild of lead guitarist Jeremy Harple and pianist Victor Veve in the spring of 2010 in the woods of Vermont. With sixty-two original songs in hand Harple and Veve flew out to Hollywood in January of 2011, where they collaborated with Oteil Burbridge (Bass Allman Bros, Derek Trucks Band), as well as world-famous drummer Kenny Aronoff. This fine group of musicians completed the Aerolites' self-titled first album and Harple and Veve flew back to Vermont to piece the rest of the band together.
With three new sought after vermont musicians added to the band, The Aerolites now tour coast -to-coast but stay true to their hometown roots of Vermont and the northeast, playing festivals, clubs, private, and commercial venues. The new touring line-up now includes Dannis Hackney (Death) on drums, Peter Bixby (Named By Strangers) on bass guitar, and Micah Sanguedolce (Domestic Blend) on guitar.
Recently, The Aerolites have recorded their second full-length album, "34 Mansfield" to be released October 12, 2013. The group's sophomore effort goes back to the band's roots and was recorded in a historic Vermont farmhouse. Each member of the new band played a key role in the development and implementation of the album as a whole, showing that now, the band had it's own sound.
Named By Strangers
Since 2001 Named By Strangers has become one of Burlington Vermont’s most respected original live music acts. The band has built a reputation for their solid songwriting and ability to draw large energetic crowds. The band’s debut release “Gone” earned NBS a place in the March/April 2004 edition of Relix Magazine as a band “on the verge” as well as a mention in the Burlington publication Seven Days “Top Ten Albums of 2004”. NBS sold over four thousand copies of Gone in it’s first year and the debut release was added to over 100 radio stations nationwide..
Thanks to their heartfelt roots in the Eastern ski and snowboard scene Named By Strangers is the subject of a feature story in the March 2006 issue of Skiing Magazine. The feature was brought about by NBS consistanly playing many of the East’s most recognized ski venues. In Skiing Magazine’s October 2004 issue Named By Strangers was touted a “take off your top good time” and made one of the Magazine’s “Hot Pics” for that issue.
Named By Strangers had a spot on RSN television’s Lounge series playing nationwide in 2004-2005 winter, and was used for opening credits on Backcountry Magazines winter televised series premiering on NESN.
The band has shared the stage with such acts as Deep Fried (members of Government Mule, The Meters, & The Neville Brothers), Max Creek, Railroad Earth, Ulu, Raq, Jen Durkin and the Bomb Squad, Spookie Daly Pride, and Glock and Patchen of Strangefolk. Additionally, Named By Strangers had the opportunity to open for Colonel Bruce Hampton and the Codetalkers with special guests Derek Trucks (Allman Brothers) and Susan Tedeschi in 2004 at Tobacco Road in NYC.
They love music and the industry – especially the people they meet along the way. Always eager to meet new bands, play new venues, and see new faces, it is the sincerest wish of the group that you enjoy the music and express interest in the band. Beyond that I of course thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to contact the band for any or no reason, and happy listening!
The Eames Brothers Band
"You'd be hard-pressed to find a harder working act than Vermont's Eames Brothers Band. The Eames' music is rooted in tradition, from sparse delta blues to stinging electric shuffles." "Their original blues tunes are remarkably soulful... The Eames Brothers album "Open Road" was voted one of Vermont's top ten best by Seven Days! ..."These dudes have passion, chops and an abundance of flavor." ..."their moody, dynamic tunes have a vibe all their own."
