Andy Suzuki & the Method - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Andy Suzuki & the Method
Independent NYC-based band, Andy Suzuki & The Method, recently released their highly anticipated LP, Born out of Mischief. They crowd-funded nearly $50,000 to record and produce the new album with the support of their fans. Born out of Mischief is the band's definitive full-length album — their folky take on rock music today.

The band is fronted by the songwriting trio Andy Suzuki, Jason Gorelick, and Kozza Babumba, two Jewish-half-Asians and the grandson of Grammy Award-winning Nigerian percussionist, Babatunde Olatunji.

The band has been writing and touring since 2008, but in the last year alone, they have had official showcases at SXSW and CMJ, performed at major music festivals in the US, and played shows at storied NYC venues such as Bowery Ballroom, Joe's Pub, and SOBs. In the fall of 2012 they played internationally with a wildly successful 3-week tour in Southeast Asia.
Jessica Carvo - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Jessica Carvo
Independent NYC based singer-songwriter Jessica Carvo began her professional career in NYC and LA singing standards and cover songs. Jessica was signed to Blue Note/Manhattan Records in 2010 where she recorded an album of Italian-American classics and performed in a live television production on PBS with the quintet, "Bell'Aria." Soon after, Jessica was asked to join her collegiate a cappella group, The University of Delaware Deltones, to be a featured soloist
on several episodes of NBC's "The Sing-Off." Most recently, Jessica was chosen to fill in for Emmylou Harris at the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rehearsals, where she sang beside legends Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks and Carrie Underwood.

Since 2012, Jessica has been collaborating with many of New York's talented musicians on her original music including guitarist and songwriter Seon Gomez, pianist and composer Avi Amon and her bassist and music director, Samuel Weber. Her songs have been sung by major label artists and featured in independent films and award winning web series.

Often referred to as an old soul, her songs are consistently catchy and her sound is compared to a variety of artists including Norah Jones, Sara B, Dolly Parton, Randy Newman and Diana Krall.
