Doors 6:30 PM / Show 7:00 PM
This event is 21 and over
Mike Liegel is a singer, musician, and songwriter with an expressive voice and soulful
appeal. He grew up in the rural suburban town of Oak Ridge, New Jersey, where he first
started learning the piano at age seven. A highly touted baseball prospect, throughout his
life Mike balanced his two passions – baseball and music – enjoying great success in both.
When not competing athletically, Mike worked side by side with his father constructing a
recording studio in the backyard of his childhood home. This studio, reminiscent of an old
barn, became a place of creative solitude where Mike wrote and developed many of his
early songs. After an injury derailed his promising collegiate baseball career, Mike took a
step back to re-devote himself to his first love; songwriting.
A product of the diversity of New York City, the band plays alternative rock tinged by the blues & electronic pop
Afternoon Men is a five-piece, New York-based rock band. Their songs cycle through a range of styles you might find on a jukebox—Sinatra to Springsteen, bar rock to electro-pop—but these influences are as much a narrative force as a part of their sound. Overarching stories link one song to the next, featuring a reappearing cast of characters whose taste in music plays the starring role in how they kill their time.
Liquor Radio formed in 2014 at one of the world’s greatest musical crossroads, New York City. The original members, Micael, Wayne and Marion added Coco and Claire in 2016. This group of musicians, both classically trained and garage taught, coalesced to create a refined indie rock sound that cuts with a dark folk edge. Their music, characterized by three-part harmonies, melodic violin and keys, and driving guitar and drums, has been performed at some of Manhattan’s most prestigious venues such as The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall. Composing and writing collaboratively, the group began recording in the summer of 2017 and has recently released their first single with an E.P. due out early next year.
