BOBAFLEX is known as one of the hardest working bands in the country. Renowned for their high energy, live shows and relentless touring the band was formed in 1998 by brothers Shaun and Marty McCoy. The brothers are known for their ancestral ties to the most infamous family feud in American history between the Hatfield and McCoy.

The band consisting of brothers, Shaun (vocals, guitars) and Marty McCoy (vocals, guitars), Jerod Mankin (vocals, bass), Tommy Johnson (drums) and newly added David Tipple (guitars) will be bringing their tour from coast-to-coast in support of the new album and single, BAD MAN. https://www.facebook.com/Bobaflex



With dynamic and powerful lyrics, epic guitar riffs, and heart pounding drums,
Stone Soul Foundation (SSF) creates energetic, blues injected heavy rock, and metal. They set a high threshold of musicality, thriving on the creation of bold, relatable songs. With their tireless Blue-Collar work ethic, and over the top sound, their live shows are a hard rockin’ full energy onslaught, performed by a band that lives and breathes for the music.
Stone Soul Foundation consists of Sean Muldoon (lead vocals), Jeff Wiggins (guitar), Doug Paradise (bass), and Shane Stillman (drums). Since their inception in the Syracuse, NY area in 2002, they have performed hundreds of shows at clubs, festivals, and special events throughout the U.S. including the famed Whisky a GO GO in Los Angeles, the SXSW Festival in Texas twice, and have opened for more than a dozen Nationals. Shane and Sean also appeared on Animal Planet’s “Hillbilly Hand Fishin” for some ‘noodling’! You can see a clip on www.stonesoulfoundation.com.




Brothers Kenny and Tommy Ende weren’t alive yet in 1986. As a matter of fact, the brothers from Seneca Falls, NY never heard bands like Van Halen and Tesla until Kenny started playing guitar in his early teens. But somehow they felt what Billy Columbo felt in ’86 when they stumbled upon metal from the 80’s and decided that it would be the soundtrack to their skateboarding endeavors. They started Nasty Habit in 2011 after finding 2 kindred spirits in drummer David Jordan and bassist Frank Wheeler who was just 16 at the time. Since then, the band has played hundreds of shows across the US, has released a full-length CD, and was runners-up for the Grammy Gig-of-a-Lifetime contest in 2013. Nasty Habit’s fan-base is international thanks to YouTube where with over 200,000 video views, it’s easy to find covers of NH songs by bands in South America and beyond.



Crows Cage is currently ranked #1 on Reverb Nation’s local chart and #66 on the national chart and rapidly rising. Which is no surprise given this, fast paced; modern rock/metal four man masterpiece has been making quite a buzz in the Central NY region since the release of their first album “FORGIVEN SINS” in the Fall of 2013. Drawing inspiration from the early days of metal to the grungy sounds of the 90’s, from the first note to the last “FORGIVEN SINS” brings an intense energy that gets in your head and leaves you wanting more.
The three founding members Tommy Rose (bass), Clint Greer (drums) and Aaron Bellows (guitar) have been playing together for nearly a decade and had been looking for just the right front man to complete their project. In 2012 the search for the fourth and final member was over with the addition of EJ Carrara (vocals). “We just knew from day one he was the fit we were looking for” says Aaron “he brings an incredible vocal range and energy that we needed.” With mutual desire and enthusiasm among the members, Crows Cage collectively creates original hard rock music that is sure to get your adrenaline pumping.
