Live Music - The Dang-it Bobbys

  • The Queens Kickshaw

Presenting the bourbon soaked brain-child of multi-instrumentalist Kris Bauman and guitarist Luca Benedetti; The Dang-it Bobbys.

Formed in 2004, the two Brooklyn-based musicians assembled a project that borrows from classic country music, newer acoustic and electric sounds, and the intricate standards from the golden age of jazz. The result is strikingly original, at once both playful and poignant. Bauman and Benedetti have created a blend of American music that is sometimes quick picking, sometimes blue, and always entertaining.

Live Music - RoseAnn Fino

  • The Queens Kickshaw

RoseAnn Fino grew up in a small farmhouse in the Hudson Valley that always had Dylan or Springsteen blaring. Her parents, avid music fans, began taking her to nightclubs and concert halls as soon as she could walk. When she turned five her father put a guitar in her hands. A kiss on the head from Patti Smith when she was eight, a pick from Bob Dylan's steel guitar player when she was ten, these moments shaped her and gave her a drive to become a performer herself.

Fino moved to New York City when she was just seventeen. There she began writing her own tunes about booze-fueled nights and tongue in cheek love. She studied writing and music performance at Hunter College. A plucky, awkwardly dressed country girl, she began shakily playing her songs at open mics. Soon she began to find her voice: a mix of city punk with country/americana roots. Though, it wasn't until she went into the studio with producer Aaron L. Hurwitz (Professor Louie-The Band) to record her debut album in 2013 that it all started to come together. Featured on the recording is the legendary group Professor Louie & The Crowmatix with guitarist John Platania (Van Morrison). With the album, which was released on Woodstock Records, she was able to solidify her expressive singing and distinctive style.

In 2015, she went back into the studio, this time Atomic Sound Studios in Brooklyn, with a bunch of her friends and recorded her EP "Out From Under" in one day. Deciding to take a different approach, this time she co-produced the album with her musical companion and beloved bandmate Ryan Shapiro. This EP was released in September 2015 with a follow up EP "Airing of Grievances" released in the spring of 2016 using the same formula.

RoseAnn currently lives in Queens with her many adopted pets and plays frequently with her band RoseAnn Fino And The Lovely Misfits.

The Good Morning Nags are an American roots rock band based in Astoria.

With an arsenal of old-timey, Appalachian, bluegrass, blues, country, ragtime, and Irish folk songs, the Nags take an alarm clock and shove it down the wrinkled ears of wistful nostalgia.

Their unabashed exuberance has cantered up from the warm sleepy towns of Georgia and the serpentine banks of that wayward uncle, the Ohio River, all the way to the beating heart of the streets of New York.
