8pm- Whiskey Spillers & Kings County Ramblers

Corey Lewis and Pat Ryan From the Brooklyn based band ANIMAL PHARM, have a side project know as...THE WHISKEY SPILLERS! A bluesy,soulful, alternative folk experience. So sit back and relax and watch them chug their beers and sip whiskey while introducing you to their unique songs in the style that they creatively call "Abstract story telling"!


10pm- Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak
Comic Tales’ lead singer, songwriter, and trumpeter Robert Whaley previously fronted NYC rock legends, the Niagaras. With a penchant for interpretive dancing on tabletops and hilariously satirical rants on a broken childhood, Whaley electrified national audiences with appearances on Good Morning America, the Oxygen network, and Fox. The Niagaras were a hugely popular staple of the Manhattan scene for nearly two decades, attracting celebrities, controversy, and packed houses along the way.

Seeking a return to the R&B roots that got him into music in the first place, and informed by an almost pathological aversion to anything post-1974, Whaley joined forces with talented newcomer Aaron Wyanski as pianist and arranger. Along with industry veterans Michael “Miguelito” LaMorté (Mini-King, Grupo Miguelito) on bass and longtime Niagaras drummer Dylan Wissing (Johnny Socko, Novel), the group has crafted an organic, literate, deeply-grooving collection of semi-autobiographical songs.

Written in a tiny studio bursting with 20th Century literature, and inspired by a massive collection of obscure vinyl, Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak have managed to create a sound and a show which is both timeless and cutting-edge. The sweat-drenched performances and the rapidly-disappearing ability to deeply engage and entertain a crowd really leave a lasting impression. Sounds like hype, until you experience it in person.
