Kitestring is a four-piece rock band featuring all-original music with influences from rootsy Americana, Blues, and Soul. The band is based in Ithaca, NY and centers around the unique talent of singer-songwriter Josh Ross whose lyrics explore personal experiences of love, loss, and redemption to weave meaningful messages that speak to the heart of listeners. Ross, whose fiery vocal performance makes it impossible not to feel something, is supported by bassist Jeremy Betterley, guitarist Marty Farchione, and drummer Phil Shay. Their song styles cover an eclectic range with the unifying thread of memorable melodies, clever lyrics and solid musicianship. The band is also known for live performances filled with energy, emotion and honesty. Kitestring’s sound is stripped down to the elements necessary to convey the message of their songs, focusing on the subtle and elegant rather than the flashy and over-the-top.
The Shut-Ins are an electrifying Rochester band playing dynamic sets with a mixture of original and cover music. Members of the band are influenced by great soul and rock artists from Hall and Oates and the Rolling Stones, to Modest Mouse, Mt. Joy and Caamp. Composed of Logan Everhart (Trumpet, vocals), Lizzie Goodness (Drums), Brendan Duran (Bass), Salvatore Montgomery (Vocals, guitar), and Kenton DeCross (Vocals, guitar), the band was founded as a way for members to write and play through early pandemic anxiety. Now the band plays for fans all around Western New York, and soon to be the world! They look forward to seeing you at their next show.
