Live Music - RoseAnn Fino

  • The Queens Kickshaw

RoseAnn 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 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 - Hive Trio

  • The Queens Kickshaw

Hive Trio is a New York City based instrumental trio noted for their fusion of experimental forms with various musical traditions.

What started off as a Craigslist post titled “Looking to get weird…”, Luke Schwartz and Ben Kraus quickly connected over their love for jazz, affinity for groove, and all things strange and un-categorical. After playing with numerous drummers, Kyle McCarter’s soulful improvising became the final piece to what would become Hive. So it goes, born of eclectic influences that run the gamut from jazz, rock and funk to 20th century chamber music, Hive began creating material that reaches far into the depths of the sonic continuum. Primarily playing the compositions of guitarist Luke Schwartz, the trio's live repertoire also includes original interpretations of jazz standards, uniquely arranged pop music of various eras, and unpredictable improvisatory experiments.

Members of Hive have played extensively in New York and the states, and have appeared internationally in Germany, France and the Netherlands.

Luke Schwartz - Guitar
Ben Kraus - Bass
