Jared Mancuso - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Jared Mancuso
Jared Mancuso makes his return as a solo artist with his new alternative rock album Superdope . His first solo release, A Very Pleasant Person (2012), is comprised of songs written over the course of a decade, and chronicles his growth as a songwriter and arranger. Just like Superdope, it features him on every instrument: drums, bass, guitar, keys, and vocals. Following the release of A Very Pleasant Person, Jared teamed up with friend and homonymous fellow songwriter Jared Bardugone to produce two albums as The Jared Project.

While on hiatus from TJP, Jared Mancuso has been spending a great deal of time spearheading another venture called Not Fade Away, a modernized tribute to the music of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper, and their contemporaries.

The mid-century stylings of early rock & roll in Not Fade Away served as a great source of inspiration for Superdope. Additionally, Jared took influence from the sunny beach-party vibes and musical intricacies of The Beach Boys, as well as elements from some of his modern musical role models: the catchiness of Weezer, the bluesy garage grittiness of Jack White, and the punchiness of The Black Keys.

These elements come together in Superdope, a sonically refreshing, in- your-face love letter to rock & roll mailed priority first-class from Jared Mancuso.
Andy Prasa - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Andy Prasa
Singer-songwriter Andy Prasa combines the pop and melodic sensibilities of John Mayer, with the soulful singing of D’Angelo, and the blues guitar virtuosity of Eric Clapton. Now releasing his second solo record, “Charlesgate East EP”, Andy is preparing his Boston debut.

Originally from Hillsborough, NJ, Andy has built up a following in the NJ-PA-NY tristate area. Performing at venues such as Webster Hall, Stone Pony, and Six Flags, Andy previously performed as a member of hard rock band The Harsh and alternative band For The Plane.

Andy Prasa is now studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. His last album, “From Coast to Coast”, garnered positive reviews from critics. TIW Music said “WARNING: If you like pop music with a twist of jazz, Andy Prasa's songs may be highly addictive. Call your doctor immediately if you repeatedly stay up past 2am listening to his music.” Look for his new record "Charlesgate East EP" on iTunes and Spotify on April 3.
