Terra Fermata's House-Band Jam
There's no telling what will come out of the HOUSE-BAND, but you can bet it will be a night not to miss.
HOUSE-BAND JAM is the special new project headed up by local musician Mike Loschiavo, who can be seen banging the stix for numerous local blues and rock bands including, Joel DaSilva, Lucky Dogs, Sister Baby, Slip & the Spinouts, Jay Stollman and others.
Each week, Mike will be bringing in talented and renowned local artists for the all-new local "Superband" he says will be mostly "BLUES. FUNK. ROCK", but with more.
Tonights featured guest: Driftwood...
When most people think of upstate New York, they either imagine bucolic landscapes or working-class towns. As natives of Binghamton, the members of Driftwood hail from a working town, but play music rooted in the land, leaning alternately into folk, old-time, country, punk, and rock, depending on their personal moods and their songs' needs.
"It's sometimes tough to keep any sort of focus on style or sound when you have three different songwriters," guitarist Dan Forsyth concedes. "But it also allows us to branch out and explore in ways other bands don't. Also, I think it's important, as a band, to ask ourselves 'Is this a good next step?' I think everyone is very excited to know that it is." Describing the Driftwood sound, banjo player Joe Kollar offers, "I consider our sound to be more of an attitude and an approach - the result of all of our influences in a completely open musical forum where the only stipulation is to use bluegrass instruments and create it from the heart."
