Westchester County, NY is a weird animal. There’s tons of bands waiting to be discovered, established acts who’ve moved here from big cities, and venues that showcase named and novelty artists. Cover bands are big in the Hudson Valley and Lower Westchester. Two venues, which happen to be connected, buck the trend and bring established […]

More refreshing than an iced latte at Dunkin on a hot day. More rocking than a chair along Lake George. More fun than peeing on a trampoline? Um, the latter might or might not be. I’m just taking a line from a killer song from our featured band today. Don’t get any idea kids. I’m […]

It’s about 2 p.m. on Friday, June 21, and Joe Scarborough’s voice is still a little hoarse. It’s coming along, but he figures it will take the weekend to return to normal.

I won’t go into specifics because it’s been so well documented (Google it if you will). Instead, I’d rather focus on the singer and the band’s recent resurgence. Last fall, the band released […]
