THE SILKS - Formed in the summer of 2010, The Silks have burst onto the music scene in New England with ferocity and enthusiasm. Front-man and songwriter Tyler James Kelly has managed to assemble a cast of musicians with resumes consisting of The Midnight Creeps, Brown Bird, Cowgirl, Electric Service and The Sugar Honey Iced Tea, and blending it into a sound that is all their own. With compliments that vary from drawing comparisons to The Rolling Stones in style and songwriting to a sound man shouting "that's the most fun I've ever had!" after a show, The Silks have garnered a reputation as a band that everyone found themselves wanting to see overnight.

The Silks have had the privilege of sharing the stage with Deer Tick, These United States, The Cave Singers, Brown Bird, The Devil Makes Three, and The Agents.

POOR OLD SHINE - From their handpainted cereal box cd cases to their thoughtful arrangements, Poor Old Shine, a Roots/Americana band from Storrs, CT is about honesty and hand crafted creativity. It's foot stomping, mind racing, dirty bluegrass like you've never heard it before! They travel with an assortment of instruments including guitars, banjos, pump organ, mandolin, string bass, musical saw, washboard, and a yard-sale-scrap-metal drum set. It's old songs with a new feel, banjos with paint peeled, shoes with holes and treadless soles, and music that is real.

The music is rooted in the folk and Appalachian mountain music tradition and fits in well at bluegrass festivals and sticky rock clubs alike. They have been compared to The Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons, Langhorne Slim, and The Low Anthem because of the changing instrumentation and harmonies. Each set mixes the band's modern songwriting with traditional folk ballads, prison work songs, and front porch style jamming.
