Drama Scream is a 5 piece hard rock band from Endicott, NY. Since their formation in 2016, this female fronted band has been taking over the stage. From head banging to heart pounding, Drama Scream is sure to grab your attention. They have just released their debut album “Built to Follow”, and are filling their schedule to tour the east coast.
Threatpoint is a Thrash/Groove Metal band based out of Scranton, PA. Formed March 2012 from the demise of their other bands, Chris James, Alex Olivetti, and CJ Krukowski sat down at a diner to layout the plans of what was to become Threatpoint. Rounding out the band’s current line up is Matthew Van Fleet. Being no stranger to Threatpoint, Matt actually helped finish recording their debut album. As of 2016 becoming a permanent member.   Now with three full length albums, and acoustic disc, and hundreds of shows coast to coast, Threatpoint vows to not to be taken lightly. Delivering a high energy show every single night they hit the state. Tastefully drawing from a diverse spectrum of influences, all of the members have strong writing skills and creative input. You will hear remnants of Classic Rock, Power Metal, Thrash Metal, and straight up Hard Rock.
Waverly, New York's up and coming super group, Friends with Benny's, began as a collaboration between friends of three previously, (and currently), successful local bands. Sharing a common vested interest in musical expression, and an unparalleled appreciation for an array of genres, they combined to create the super-group they are to-date. Be it tightly played tributes with a twist, or sui generis compositions of front man, Benjamin Borko; from Funk to Folk, Rock to Reggae, and everything before and between, Friends with Benny's is bound to please! -Benjamin Borko : lyrics, vocals, rhythm/lead guitar, (and namesake of this eclectic group) is backed by the precision percussion of Joseph Soprano, sublime rhythms of bass guitar player Jacob Brennan.
Covering many genres of music, it is difficult to put Rare Breed into a single category. With musical influences coming from all four corners of the map, they provide good time music that caters to a wide variety of musical taastes. easily adaptable, Rare Breed is able to transform their shows to fit any venue or atmosphere while maintaining a sound that is uniquely their own. We enjoy mixing classic hits and current chart toppers with a few high energy original tunes in between.
