The Rooks
The Rooks
The Rooks are equal parts kick-back, head-knock, and get-down; the music you rock to at the party, and the perfect soundtrack for the ride home.

A transplant from the Wesleyan University music scene, The Rooks have spent the last five years making noise across New York City and across North America, gaining substantial recognition for their debut EP, Something You Can Take (2013), follow-up single, Twister (2014) and their second EP, Wires, which debuted on Afropunk in June 2015.

Hard-hitting performances at Irving Plaza, Mercury Lounge and Brooklyn Bowl, as well as highly successful residencies at Arlene's Grocery and Pianos NYC (second highest-grossing in venue history) have earned them further acclaim, including Deli Magazine's Artist of the Month award (2014), and winners of the 14th Annual Independent Music Awards in the R&B/Soul category.

Thanks to their generous, family, friend and fans, The Rooks are currently in the studio working on their first, full length album and preparing for their summer tour-- they would love for you to join the party!
Hood Smoke
A tour de force of the Chicago music scene, Hood Smoke has been making lasting impressions on listeners all over the world since the release of their debut album, 2012’s Laid Up In Ordinary.

The Chicago Sun-Times calls the band a “must-see act.” WBEZ’s Vocalo touts them as “a kind of soul-pop fusion that is truly captivating.” With their second album, 2014’s Regular Neurotic, the band gained critical notoriety. American Songwriter Magazine featured the song, “Never Suffering,” written by band leader, bassist and composer Bryan Doherty.

Rough Around The Hedges, the band’s third album, is set to come out in the spring of 2016. String and brass trios, a small vocal choir, award-winning trumpeter Marquis Hill and Chicago legend Matt Ulery, help to make The Hedges their most anticipated release to date
