Russ Seeger


Russ Seeger is a modern rocker, and a survivor. It is hard to be both. The man has paid his dues and then some,  making hard choices to keep himself in the business while raising a family, a juggling act that requires focus, dedication, and an iron jaw. To be a rocker in the 21 century requires acquiring an extensive knowledge of the history and traditions that make up rock & roll, to be well versed in the blues, country, gospel and folk music. This knowledge and facility separate the men from the boys, so to speak, and Seeger, a multi-instrumentalist who has played with some of the very best is certainly a man among men. Even his most ferocious rock tunes have a warmth and hill country folksiness , and his most twangy tunes have a raw edge of Mississippi juke joints. He also has command of “The Hook”, the turn of phrase, lyrically and musically that grabs the listener’s attention. In Russ Seeger’s world the melodic pop and social commentary of Ray Davies coexists perfectly with the roots drenched deep Americana of the Band.

Russ is truly a living legend on the Long Island music scene. For a remarkable four-plus decades, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Seeger has performed at virtually every venue in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, playing acoustic and electric guitars, fiddle and more, singing his songs and uniquely interpreting the tunes of those who’ve influenced him along the way. He’s made music with such greats as Peter Rowan, Vassar Clements, Paul Siebel, Peter Stampfel, Rick Danko, John Hartford and—the one he’s most proud of—the late, great Levon Helm, who anchored a band with Seeger called the Last Hombres, who released an album, Redemption, in 2003.

“the songs are deeply literate and driving roots rock that express aspects of the American experience from a multitude of angles...Americana with muscle” - SKH Music

Kerry Kearney , a slide guitar master, plays and works his instrument to limits that amaze even the most seasoned musician or cultured music fan. The sounds Kerry creates from his vintage, stock and custom-made guitars are as unique as his song writing and original melodies. Kerry was voted "Best Guitarist of 1999" by the LI Voice and “Bluesman of the Year 2004” by the LI Blues Society. He is also the recipient of the prestigious Long Island Sound Award (L.I.S.A.) from the LI Music Hall of Fame and most recently, in 2013, he and his band mates were each inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame. He has toured nationally and internationally with the Allman Brothers Band and Dickey Betts and has performed with such contemporaries as Sonny Landreth and Robert Randolph. Kerry and his band have shared the stage with the great BB King at the NYCB Westbury Theater and at the Paramount Theater in Huntington, NY, as well as Robert Cray with the Blind Boys of Alabama and The Blues Brothers starring Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi.

Kerry Kearney’s style, music from the “Psychedelta”, is his own brand containing an upbeat mix of American Blues & Roots, created from writing and performing on the circuit for over 40 years. Along with his band, he has continued to experience an overwhelming and positive response over the airwaves and especially when performing live. His wailing upbeat style of blues, driven by tasty, inspired guitar riffs, electrifying slide and infectious rhythms, has allowed Kerry to amass a huge loyal following. The Kerry Kearney Band recently celebrated 20 years to a sold-out show at the Boulton Center in Bay Shore, NY.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Michael Falzarano has been a working musician for over 50 years, most notably in Hot Tuna, the famed offspring of The Jefferson Airplane, The New Riders of the Purple Sage, and his current projects The Airplane Family, The Englishtown Project and The Kings of the Psychedelta.

Falzarano is a longtime member of The New Riders of the Purple Sage founded by the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia. Along with original members David Nelson and the recently deceased Buddy Cage, this seminal cosmic outlaw country band toured extensively for decades and recorded two CDs of new material (Where I Come From and 17 Pine Avenue).  Several songs were co-written with Robert Hunter, famed lyricist for the Grateful Dead.  Original Falzarano compositions appear on those releases as well as Wanted: Live At Turkey Trot (Fa-Ka-Wee).

Falzarano also has five solo releases to his credit.  His most recent CD, A Kaleidoscope Christmas, received rave reviews and was featured in Rolling Stone magazine's column "Songs You Have to Hear.”

Falzarano has both performed on and contributed many original songs to Hot Tuna CDs such as “Pair A Dice Found” (Epic), “Live at Sweetwater I and II” (Relix), “…And Furthurmore” (Grateful Dead Records) and “Hot Tuna—Live In Japan” (Relix), as well as the Jorma Kaukonen releases “Land of Heroes” (American Heritage), “Too Many Years” (American Heritage) and “The Jorma Kaukonen Trio Live” (Relix).  One of Falzarano’s self-penned compositions is featured on Kaukonen's current release “I Ain't In No Hurry” (Red House).  Falzarano’s partial discography includes Professor Louie & the Crowmatix’s “Live” and “Flyin’ High” (both on Woodstock Records), Kerry Kearney’s “Trippin’ on the Psychedelta” (Relix) and Alexis P. Suter's “Shuga Fix” (Hipbone).
