The Infamous

The GRAMMY® Award-winning quintet—Andy Falco [guitar], Chris Pandolfi [banjo], Andy Hall [dobro], Jeremy Garrett [fiddle], and Travis Book [double bass]—have musical influences that truly run the gamut, but their common denominator is certainly bluegrass— the sound that has in essence defined the course of their career. The Infamous Stringdusters stand out as the rare group who can team up with contemporary artists on late night television one night and headline the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre or perform alongside The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh the next, and have recently emerged as proprietors behind their newly found independent record label, Americana Vibes.

Karina Rykman

“Joyride Tour 2023” celebrates the upcoming arrival of Karina Rykman’s hugely anticipated debut album, JOYRIDE, arriving via AWAL on Friday, August 18. The album was first heralded earlier this month with the premiere of the single and title track, “Joyride.” Equal parts thick bass, ethereal synths, disco-funk guitar, and silky, inviting vocals, the track – which features signature lead guitar from JOYRIDE co-producer Trey Anastasio – expertly captures Rykman’s jubilant brand of sonic exploration, bridging an array of genres to arrive at her own compelling and original take on psychedelic indie rock.

Wild Knights

Members of Buffalo's Organ Fairchild performing songs from the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers & more!  Never able to shake their high-school-era band name, Williamsville’s Wild Knights became one of the region’s top drawing bands in the 1980’s and early 90’s, packing Western NY clubs for long evenings of music by The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, The Band and more. Band members Mike Bellman, Joe Bellanti, Corey Kertzie, Mark Marsack and Dave Ruch got back together in 2018 with long-time friend Rolf Witt filling the bass chair, and quickly sold out their first performance. With two full drum kits, two lead guitar players battling it out on the Allman Brothers tunes, a world-class honky tonk piano player, and a deep catalog of music by The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Band and more, this is music made in the moment by seasoned professionals who love to improvise.

Dirty Blanket

Dirty Blanket have toured the American Northeast, making names for themselves on festival circuits and in cities like New York, DC, Baltimore, Burlington, and beyond. To date, they've shared stages with some of the highest profile names in bluegrass including Billy Strings, The Del McCoury Band, The Infamous String Dusters, Jeff Austin Band, Kitchen Dwellers and more.​ The seeds of Dirty Blanket were planted in 2013 at the meeting of guitarist Max Flansburg and singer/songwriter Kevin O'Leary. Combining an array of influence with a passion for creating original music, the two began playing as an acoustic duo, utilizing what free time their other musical projects allowed to share their latest material with audiences across Upstate NY.
