All Types of Kinds - WebAll Types of Kinds is a New York City based Alternative band, consisting of members: Billy Conahan (guitar), Ray Rubio (guitar), Berk O (percussion) and Rocco Stoker (guitar). As a group, they have experience performing various genres of music, from folk to rap and in between. Their music and shows reflect this diverse background and have helped them to have great success in the New York metropolitan area. The guys are all singer/songwriters with a large repertoire of band and personal songs. Having grown up doing acting, musical theater, and stand-up comedy, the group is skilled at crowd engagement, making their shows unique and up-beat. Their personal and group experiences give them the ability to read and play to any crowd, creating a show that is always changing and appealing to everyone.

kaylee shahira web picKaylee Shahira is a young, passionate indie-pop artist with a killer sound hailing from Northwest Indiana. Shahira loves writing about the questions nobody can answer- living with mental illness, personal life philosophies, and the intricacies of being a social animal. Still at the start of her career, having one EP and her first full length project out, Shahira shows a lot of promise as an emerging artist.

Psychopompous - WebPsychopompous is the most recent nominal iteration of the musical project formed by singer and guitarist Justin Kelly, percussionist Beni Hahitti, and bassist Maximillian Nero. Formed (first) in 2010 at Great Neck South High/Middle School through a mutual interest primarily in progressive rock, they expanded into an unending plethora of musical interests that continues to grow at an alarming, and often frustrating rate. Their music has taken notes from progressive rock, heavy metal, alternative, blues, funk, psychedelia, gregorian chant, tibetan throat singing, and occassionally whale songs. They have been known in the past for their sincere love of technical musicianship, experimentation and improvisation, and their unbridled willingness to play music nobody wants to hear.
