Nalani & Sarina
Getting music fans to agree on anything is next to impossible. That's why the quick rise of twin sisters, Nalani & Sarina -- from a small town in west-central New Jersey to national notoriety and recognition -- is such an astounding story. These two audacious young artists have developed a distinctive blend of traditionalist soul-rock and modern pop, and their stylistic alchemy is likely to keep their faces in the spotlight for years to come. Legendary music critic and Sirius radio host Dave Marsh, recently called their latest EP, Scattered World, "some of the best music being made in 2016", and fans, critics and taste-makers have echoed his praise.
You might say that Nalani & Sarina were born in stereo: they're identical mirror twins. Nalani plays her guitar right-handed; Sarina is a lefty. When they're both singing and strumming, it feels like the song has come to greet the listener with arms wide open. Their captivating look is on display in the video for "Get Away", a propulsive cut from Scattered World that recently won The Freshmen contest on mtvU, and remains in regular rotation on the channel. In the clip -- and in their stage show, too -- Nalani & Sarina present themselves with the swagger and confidence of established stars who know they've got something essential to share.
The sisters have been writing and singing together since they were kids. Nalani & Sarina play several instruments, including guitar, piano, and ukulele, and their singing voices are simultaneously forthright and alluring. Songs like "We'll Be Free" and "Runaway" demonstrate a deep understanding of the architecture of classic pop and soul, and the rapid-fire delivery of "Get Away" suggests mastery of contemporary sounds, as well. Their smart, kinetic live show has made the sisters favorites on the Northeastern club scene: they've graced stages at Philly's World Cafe Live and Milkboy, the City Winery, Rockwood Music Hall, and the Bitter End in New York City, The Saint in Asbury Park, and at regional music festivals like Musikfest (Bethlehem, PA), Black Potatoe Festival (Clinton, NJ), and Ladybug Festival (Wilmington, DE).

Chaser Eight Naked
New Haven, Connecticut rock quintet, Chaser Eight, is a melodic, alternative rock outfit that released their first studio LP, Chaser Eight, on February 17, 2015. The group boasts bluesy and richly expressive vocals, mesmerizingly textured guitar playing, and a dynamic and imaginative rhythm section. Inspired by Joan Jett, Foo Fighters and Alanis Morissette, Chaser Eight writes moody, guitar driven songs lead with soulful female vocals. Since the age of ten, singer, *AUDRA*, and guitarist, Pat Walsh, have been writing songs together and released their first EP, Late Night Companions, in 2012 followed by EPs Up and Up and At the 426 in 2013. The band writes about relatable subject matter - darkness, love, loss, partying, and sex - inviting listeners to connect with the raw, passionate lyrics.
In 2013, the band made its television debut, performing two songs on WTNH's Connecticut Style Stage 8 and returned to Stage 8 in February 2015 to promote their new self-titled album. The band made their first official licensing placement in January 2014 with the commissioned remake of their song “Road (Indecision)” as the main title for the independent motion picture, Acting Like Adults. Their music has been played on Connecticut radio stations 99.1 WPLR and Radio 104.1 with Radio 104.1 being the official host of their album release party at The Ballroom at The Outer Space in Hamden, Connecticut on February 21, 2015. Chaser Eight has opened for The London Souls and The Radiators and *AUDRA* has worked with The Rolling Stones' iconic former manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, on the production and arrangement of her songs. They will be performing live all throughout the Northeast during 2015 and you can find their music on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, and many other popular sites.
For this show, we will have AUDRA and Pat scaling it down to a duo and playing us an acoustic set of their original music.
