Fat Mink with Hasty Page and Bad Mothers @ The Hollow

Link to Facebook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/329177281296290/

Honed by five years deeply immersed in the tenor/organ scene in Harlem, the outstanding guitarist/composer Matthew Finck formed his remarkable jazz/funk ensemble Fat Mink in 2005. Gigging with the group, heavy educational commitments, being a much sought after sideman in ensembles of many genres, and co-leading the Matthew Finck/Jonathan Ball Project, have all put recording the blazing ensemble on the back burner. Finally, the group’s long awaited first album Fat Mink is now available.With the group’s original drummer Mike Nappi’s and new electric bassist Dave Livolsi’s inspired creativity locking down the intensely rhythmic groove, Fat Mink explores four of the group’s most popular pieces along with three new works written for this date – all of them from the endlessly fertile depths of Matthew’s compositional talents. Adding to the delightful brew is the participation on three tracks by Matthew’s longtime collaborator, tenor saxophonist Jonathan Ball.“The compositions and solos pay homage to the guitarists/bands I've been inspired by throughout my life – Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Robben Ford, Jimmy Page, John Scofield, Wayne Krantz, Pat Metheny – there are simply too many to name... but these compositions reflect the many influences I've had and the effect they've had on my playing and my music.”While the full scope of Matthew’s musical expression crosses into so many styles, the focus here is on unbridled groove music in both the hardcore instrumental funk and soul jazz traditions. From rollicking scorchers to heartfelt soul ballads, all built around the always imaginative nucleus of Matthew’s extraordinary guitar explorations, Fat Mink is a scintillating experience from beginning to end.Despite the consistent focus of the style, Matthew’s compositions cover a full range of emotions and colors, but never sacrificing the essence of groove that is the music’s core while providing ideal frameworks for his brilliant solos. From the powerfully funky and relentlessly rocking Flexible that opens the album, through the punchy, suspended rhythms and highly expressive Sly Stone-ish wah-wah funk drawl of the closing track Minkstinct, this album will keep you on your feet and “on the one” from start to finish.In between are the alternatively evocative and hard-rocking Creep, with a touch of Santana on the head and a healthy dose of Jimi in the wailing solo; the infectiously syncopated smoker 7&7, closing with tension-filled guitar chords framing a terrific drum solo; and the three cuts graced by Jonathan Ball’s tenor. The title tune Fat Mink, a rapid-fire scorcher with a swirling theme is fired with wailing guitar and wah-electrified – and electrifying – tenor sax; the beautiful ballad Self-Portrait featured plaintive tenor and full-bodied guitar on the theme, with passionate, exploratory and deeply emotional solos; and Brotherhood, aptly named for both the 15 year musical relationship and the deep aesthetic connection between Matthew and Jonathan, is a masterpiece of soulful expression.With this long overdue first album, Fat Mink takes its rightful place on the front lines of deeply funkified celebration in jubilant fashion.

Alive at Five with Wild Adriatic and Jocelyn & Chris Arndt Band

5:00 PM17:00

Alive at Five with Wild Adriatic and Jocelyn & Chris Arndt Band

Alive at five on July 25th features a double main event: Wild Adriatic and Jocelyn & Chris Arndt Band with special guests Hasty Page! Presented by Dutch Apple Cruises KeyBank and 102.7 WEQX - The REAL Alternative!

Devastatingly powerful vocals and retro-rock guitar, with lyrics that run the gamut between vulnerable to all-out venomous: Jocelyn & Chris Arndt’s music has matured into what can only be described as a throwback to pure, authentic rock. Together with their band, Jocelyn & Chris perform coast to coast, including stops at The Sundance Film Festival, Milwaukee Summerfest, and a main-stage performance at Mountain Jam Music Festival this past summer, all while balancing college at Harvard University. Their recordings feature guests including G. Love, Cory Wong of Vulfpeck, Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis, and keyboardist/Jade Bird producer David Baron.

In December, Jocelyn & Chris broke into the Billboard Triple A Top 40 with their single “Red Stops Traffic.”

Their team includes publicist Rebecca Shapiro and Andrea Evanson at Shore Fire Media, label services with Bridge Road Entertainment, and radio promotion specialists including Meg MacDonald and Rene Magallon at M:M Music.


Rooted in the rowdy spirit of rock & roll, Wild Adriatic has built an international audience on a combination of groove, grit, and guitar-heavy swagger. With the power trio's newest album, Feel, bandmates Travis Gray, Rich Derbyshire, and Mateo Vosganian update the sound of their influences -- from Seventies rock to Motown to soul -- for a contemporary audience, taking influence from the past but never losing sight of the present. They aren't
revivalists; they're modern men, carrying the torch of melodic, riff-ready, high-energy rock into new territory. Whittled into sharp shape by a touring schedule that's kept them busy for roughly 175 days a year — including two European tours, countless stateside
runs, and appearances at festivals like Bonnaroo — Wild Adriatic's three members recorded Feel in Austin, teaming up with Grammy-nominated producer Frenchie Smith in the process. The goal was to shine a light on the band's strength as a live act, avoiding click tracks, digital instruments, sampled sounds, and other tricks of the recording studio. Instead, Wild Adriatic focused on the same core ingredients — Gray's guitar playing and soulful sweep of a voice; Vosganian's percussive stomp; Derbyshire's in-the-pocket bass — that helped kickstart the band in 2011, back when Wild
Adriatic formed in Upstate New York.



Hasty Page is a group of young, innovative musicians that came together to create an exciting and inspirational new sound for their fans. The original music they write paints a theatrical image through the use of creative lyrics and intricate musicianship.

Tips will be collected in the beer garden to benefit great local organization Capital Roots! Find more information about them at: https://www.capitalroots.org/

The Hotelier was also featured (for their second album) in a Boston Globe article highlighting the best music from Boston in 2014 and performed at the 2015 Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, Spain.

Treading the line between indie pop and alternative rock, Hasty Page gathers influences from bands such as The 1975, Nothing But Thieves, and Pearl Jam. They have performed at venues such as The Hollow Bar + Kitchen, Jupiter Hall, and Rockwood Music Hall in NYC. The band has also played alongside national touring acts such as Colony House, Arkells, K. Flay, and Ripe; festivals include Celebrate Fairfax Festival (VA) and Pearlpalooza 2017.

The band recorded every single part of each song into one microphone, which remained in place in the center of the room throughout a three-day period. Atwood Magazine states "Built on raw DIY energy, Albany duo Bruiser and Bicycle's 'Woods Come Find Me is a delightfully alternative, fantastically fun time."

Tulip Fest After Party featuring Hasty Page & Bendt

Their original music paints a theatrical image through the use of creative lyrics and intricate musicianship.

Doors open @ 7pm
Hasty Page
Hasty Page is a group of innovative musicians from Upstate New York that came together to create an exciting, inspirational new sound for their fans. Their original music paints a theatrical image through the use of creative lyrics and intricate musicianship. With a mix of popular cover tunes and invigorating original music, their live shows are sure to entertain and keep you wanting more. Josh Morris, Zane Agnew and James Paolano formed the group in November, 2015. Since then, they have released an EP, “The Coming of Age,” and a full length album, “Distance.” They have played over 100 shows in and around New York’s Capitol Region, including several at Jupiter Hall, Move Music Festival 2016/2017, and Pearlpalooza 2017. They are influenced by artists such as Kings of Leon, Incubus, The 1975, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Nothing But Thieves to name a few, but have formed a musical identity that won’t soon be forgotten.

Bendt
With lyrical grit, dynamic grooves, and atmospheric, yet driving melodies, Bendt has carved a distinctive sound into the face of modern rock. Formed in 2015, Bendt evolved out of the crucible of the Albany, New York music scene as a passion project between friends. Bandmates Matt Plummer (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Carl Blackwood (lead guitar), John Longo (bass), and Cody Bingham (drums) work to craft a unique presence, one that draws from their individual musicianship and shared love of hard rock, alternative, metal, and funk. As Bendt’s songs leap between soaring riffs and emotive screams, to unusual time signatures and bass-heavy flows, the band captures something that is universal while simultaneously personal and immediate.

Dark Honey with Hasty Page

Two of the Capital Regions's must-hear ALT bands on one hot bill.

Dark Honey
Formerly One Red Martian

Dark Honey is comprised of three brothers and a childhood friend who have been making music together since they were kids. After spending several years in the south the group moved back to their roots in the northeast and began to fine tune their unique sound. Embracing a truly DIY spirit, the band records and releases all their music themselves from their indie studio in Upstate NY.

"Stinging Nettle" is a sugar-shot of tight indie pop-rock. Weaving through its upbeat stomp and catchy melodies singer Jimi Woodul delivers frank and bittersweet lyrics born from experience. An anthem for anyone who's ever fallen hard, it speaks to the simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious dreams of youth.


Vocals, Guitar / Jimi Woodul
Bass / Ben Woodul

Hasty Page is a group of innovative musicians from Upstate New York that came together to create an exciting, inspirational new sound for their fans. Their original music paints a theatrical image through the use of creative lyrics and intricate musicianship. With a mix of popular cover tunes and invigorating original music, their live shows are sure to entertain and keep you wanting more. Josh Morris, Zane Agnew and James Paolano formed the group in November, 2015. Since then, they have released an EP, “The Coming of Age,” and a full length album, “Distance.” They have played over 100 shows in and around New York’s Capitol Region, including several at Jupiter Hall, Move Music Festival 2016/2017, and Pearlpalooza 2017. They are influenced by artists such as Kings of Leon, Incubus, The 1975, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Nothing But Thieves to name a few, but have formed a musical identity that won’t soon be forgotten.
