It's the return of Long Island NY's might InCircles! This will be the band's third appearance in the Berkshires and if you've caught them before, you already know this will be an awesome show! This is the band that played right before The Casualties in 2013 at their Pittsfield show. If you've only heard about InCircles live, then this is your chance to check them out live and in person! Also appearing will be Case Closed from Jersey, For No One from upstate NY and making a rare appearance, locals Noumenon!
Lead singer Jewlee is a heavy-hitting cross between Jim Morrison, Patti Smith and Kurt Cobain with a singular lead and rhythm guitar style that powers this amazing trio. With years of experience, starting from the earliest times of their lives, the thunderous rhythm section consisting of bass player Eric Ponto and drummer Oscar Silva have sharpened InCircles into a finely tuned rock 'n roll machine.
Also appearing is:
Case Closed is comprised of four Glassboro, NJ, high school best friends. Curt Beebe – Vocals/Guitar | Dave Schoettler – Guitar/Vocals | Dan Huesser – Bass | Phil Fasulo – Drums. In 2011, the band linked up with producer Jesse Cannon of Cannon Found Soundation (Man Overboard, Say Anything) to record their debut album “Clouds.” Clouds was a local success producing fan favorites, “A Tribute to a Man and His Orange Juice,” “Syngyny” and “Jersey in Fall.” The band returned to work with Jessie Cannon in late 2012. The result was the mature sounding, Basements EP, which was released digitally May 2013 via BIMMG Bungalo Records/Universal Music Group. Jessie Cannon stated this about the band, “Case Closed is one of the few bands I hear today that you can’t easily put your finger on their direct influences. A unique voice that is pumping out great songs.” Case Closed lists, Manchester Orchestra, Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, The Early November, Saves The Day and “pretty much everything else,” as their influences.
FOR NO ONE
The seeds for For No One were first planted back in the mid-90’s, when bassist Wayne Mitchell forged a lasting musical partnership with singer T Keegan, based on an affinity for the then burgeoning grunge rock explosion. Their first venture together was the grunge rock powerhouse Andalusion, for which Wayne provided the drumming. After that band folded, younger brother Josh Mitchell stepped up to the fore with some serious drumming heat, and with Wayne moving over to bass along with guitarist Ryan Olive, they formed the band Blue Stigmata. As new songs were being developed, the band decided a name change was in order, and For No One (based on the Beatles song of the same name), was born.
The band has always been known for cranking out great, straight-to-the-point tracks reminiscent of their 90’s rock and old school punk influences (Nirvana, Misfits, etc.). With the addition of Aaron Magram on guitar in 2011, the band soon began to incorporate other classic hard rock influences into their sound (Black Sabbath, Queens of the Stone Age, etc.). Now sporting a broader range of styles in their arsenal, the band believes their sound has evolved to the point where they can simply be referred to as a kick-ass heavy rock band.
For No One spent the majority of late-2011 and 2012 playing various local haunts, at times opening for national acts such as Middle Class Rut and Foxy Shazam. The band then spent most of early 2013 working on their debut self-recorded, self-titled album, followed by a brief Mid-West tour that summer. The songs cherry picked for the album bridge the gap between old and new; tying different eras of the band together with the same distortion, booming drums, and raw vocal hooks that hit the spot. With additional mixing & mastering by Darin Rose, the finished product has both the clarity and raw immediacy that any fan of heavy music could ask for.
The band is proud to carry the torch for hard rock music, as they continue to put together tracks for a second release. Playing heavy rock music may seem like a commercial proposition to many, but For No One believes that, at least in their neck of the woods, straight-up rock bands feel a bit scarce, and they are more than happy to be a part of it.
Boy named Jon meets girl who calls herself Grr in the green, rolling hills of Western Massachusetts. Boy and girl form a band. That band is noumenon – irreverent, unclassifiable, and sometimes unpronounceable. Heavily influenced by rock, grunge, punk, and blues, noumenon uses acoustic guitars and raw, powerful vocals to create a pared-down folk-core sound that is nonetheless capable of blowing out eardrums.
Jon is a classically-trained pianist, vocalist and composer who believes that classical and rock music are not such different animals. He takes inspiration from such original punk rockers as Beethoven and Mussorgsky and incorporates his classical training into the writing of popular songs.
Grr is an experienced theatrical performer and blues singer who has always not-so-secretly aspired to be a rock star. Her vocal training from years in the theatre has led her to develop a voice that could potentially be used as a sonic weapon.
The duo has produced one album, cherryhole, and continues to pen songs and perform live in Berkshire County, MA. Now with more George!
