Friday, October 6, 6-8pm
The music of Will Overman is at once melodic as it is relentless, as refreshingly unique as it is familiar and evocative.
Overman’s music is rooted deeply in the South yet transcends genres and convention, blending essential elements of rock, blues, country toward a collective swell reminiscent of the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Marshall Tucker.
A Virginia native, Overman -- who made it through two levels of NBC’s “The Voice” -- pairs sleek vocals with haunting rhythm and introspective melody. He takes on love, life and loss. All with an edge driven deep in reality.
Whether performing solo or with a full band, Overman is a young Bruce Springsteen, (think “Nebraska”). He’s a folksinger and a rocker (think “Born to Run”), fronting a talented group of musicians swinging from flawless riffs to intoxicating beats.
Friday, October 6, 8-10pm

Quarter Horse is a force on the Long Island music scene. The band of six consists of brothers John Rienzi (drummer/mandolin player) and Sean Rienzi (bassist) with guitarist Vinny Costantino, keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Chris Brooks and guitarist/vocalists Nick Pirollo and Ryan Porciello. Known for their 3-part vocal harmonies, guitar solos and improvisation, the group’s eclectic Americana sound includes elements of rock, folk, alternative, country, blues and jazz.
It’s a collaborative writing process for Quarter Horse. It might take awhile to complete a song but the goal is to be as democratic as possible. The debut EP River Flow was recorded live in the studio within a few hours and the band will soon be recording a full-length album.
“We’re planning on recording with Andy Falco and Jack Licitra,” said John Rienzi. “They’ve been doing some great recordings lately and we think they could really capture our sound the way we hear it.”
