Butcher Knives - Gypsybilly/Punk
Brooklyn-based Butcher Knives is a multilingual whirlwind of international musical and cultural movements, anchored to a high-octane punk rock aesthetic. The band's members collectively hail from four countries, speak five languages, and possess three U.S. passports and a handful of work visas. With roots in Morocco, Israel, Colombia, New York, and New Orleans, Butcher Knives truly embody their multi-lingual, diverse, and multi-cultural sound and message. Together they test the outer limits of their musical dexterity in the context of the simplicity and anarchy of punk rock.
The Rare Occasions - Garage/Post-Prog
After making their mark on the Providence rock scene with their reputable act, The Valar, drummer Luke Imbusch and singer/keyboardist Brian McLaughlin decided to take their unmistakable sound with them to Boston. There they teamed up with bassist Jeremy Cohen and guitarist Peter Stone, and quickly began constructing a set more formidable than their last. As The Rare Occasions, these four intertwine well-crafted songwriting with an unapologetically bold sense of musicianship to bring the music to the people.

It wasnt until 1998 when he became a regular at Club Rio spinning 2-3 nights a week for over a year.
