Nerds in Denial is a four piece rock band hailing from Rochester, New York. As the self-proclaimed founding fathers of 'craft rock-fusion’, these four lads mix a tasty, energetic blend of classic rock and jazz with modern alternative and indie rock, as well as a heavy dose of funk. Nerds in Denial released their debut album “Take Two” in the summer of 2016, and are working hard to bring to you their next, much more ambitious record.

So Last Year began in 2013 as a project of Logan Van Epps, and with the addition of some talented musicians has evolved into a Rochester rock-and-roll powerhouse. In the past five years, SLY has released two full-length albums, released two high budget music videos, garnered a devout Upstate NY fanbase, and played 100+ shows with talented artists across the Northeast, from Boston to Chicago to Philadelphia.

Cobalt Clouds is a three-piece alternative, grunge, indie, rock band from Rochester, NY.

The current lineup of Cobalt Clouds came together in the summer of 2016 and can be seen playing out at various music venues in the Rochester area. The band is often described as being Nirvana-esque and early Foo Fighters, putting on highly energetic shows. Their musical influences come from a range of 90s grunge bands to indie artists of the 00s through today. Unlike other local bands playing well known covers at their shows, Cobalt Clouds is known for playing tunes from more obscure artists such as: Joyce Manor, Brand New, Death from Above 1979, Car Seat Headrest, Swain, and other lesser known but still awesome artists.

McClane has developed its sound from influences such as Green Day, Blink-182, Sum-41, Foo Fighters, and many others. The tone can be described as straight edged with punchy lines of complexity from each of the instruments. McClane has an attitude that sure to get the crowd rockin’.
