July 11th Featured Bands The Mostest
This version of The Mostest is made up of songwriter Mark Ransom (electric guitar and vocals), Patrick Pearsall (electric bass and backing vocals), and Nick Papa (drumset). The Mostest plays original, groove-based rock n roll inspired by acts like, the Allman Brothers, The Grateful Dead, Phish and the Disco Biscuits among others. For more info about our music check our website and electronic press kit:http://www.themostest.net

The Erins
The duo opening the show for The Mostest is truly amazing. The Erins’ music, stage presence and general vibe is too good to put into words... Sweet, haunting harmonies, soaring fiddle parts and uplifting original song-craft make this sometimes local girl band way better than all the others. Back for the summer from East coast sabbatical, the Erins are ready to deliver the goods! myspace.com/theerinsband
