An Evening with Soundswell -- Acoustic and Electric
Live in the Lobby
April 4 at 7:30 PM
"Original Jam based music that you can move your body to" describes this hot band that burst onto the local music scene in late 2011 and has built a loyal following because of their outstanding musicianship and great energy. Their sound infuses elements of rock, folk and jazz that is building a growing fan base of "SwellFolk". They have been wanting to develop an acoustic set and we agreed with them that Live in the Lobby is the perfect place to debut "Soundswell Acoustic," which will open the evening and be followed by a rockin' set of the hot young band "plugged in!"

Patchogue Jam 6 - Butcher's Blind, Cassandra House, Kerry Kearney, and Iridesense
April 5 at 7:30 PM
A Celebration of Original Music from Long Island on the Main Stage.
Kerry Kearney, a slide guitar master, plays and works his instrument to limits that amaze even the most seasoned musician or cultured music fan. The music that Kerry creates from his vintage, stock, and custom made guitars are as unique as his song writing and original melodies.
Cassandra House is a native Patchogue singer-songwriter who has been influenced greatly by the landscape and people of Long Island in her songwriting from a very young age. Her country-tinged voice and confessional lyrics paint a picture of her philosophy on life, heartbreak & home. Her music creates a kind of newish Americana with earnest explorations of relationships, love, and whatever exists in between.
When you listen to the music of Butchers Blind you know the future of Alt-Country shines blindingly bright. The Bellmore based group encompasses the rich history of American Roots music, then broadens and reshapes it into something exciting, refreshing and uniquely their own.
Iridesense is a brother and sister team, Rick and Tara Eberle, who along with Rob Viccari and Rich Drouin have been making their mark on the Long Island music scene for the better part of two decades. They are very tight unit, rhythmically, and vocally, and their songwriting tells a story. As a band they have been carving out their niche, staying true to their vision and making music with a message.
