Robbing Johnny - (Set time: 8:10 PM)
Robbing Johnny
The Harlem-based band formed in 2014 while Pat was putting out rap music with Analog Rascals and John was doing solo singer/songwriter gigs in NYC. They started writing and playing parties as a duo. Jordan joined the band in early 2015 after graduating from Berklee College of Music and starting his masters in percussion at NYU. His use of acoustic percussion and electronic beats made the sound hit harder. Add Pat's high school bandmate, Evan Harris, on electric guitar and Jordan's Berklee class mate, John MaHoney, on the bass, and a full band was built around the raw tunes. Their debut release, Cynical Son EP, is available online everywhere.
Fort Vine - (Set time: 7:20 PM)
Fort Vine
Growing up surrounded by nature in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York, Trevor Tunison, Fort Vine's front man, found his love of music writing at a young age. The middle child in an exceptionally artistic family, Tunison easily adopted the arts as a way of life. He collaborated with Luke Markham in college and together they recorded his first Album, "The Whole Universe and Who Cares". Ready to pursue his career in music after college, Tunison moved to New York City in the fall of 2010 where he met his new roommate Nyna Nelson. They quickly discovered they had a knack for building forts and writing music together. Their secret tree fort in Harlem near the Hudson River inspired the band's name. Fort Vine was complete after Luke Markham found his way to the city, reuniting Tunison's songwriting with Markham's rhythm. Bass guitarist Kenny Johnson joined the band after meeting Tunison at the catering company they both worked for.
