Bourbon Express has been playing honky tonks around New York City since 2011. Based in Brooklyn, this unlikely country band takes its cues from traditional artists such as Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard and Loretta Lynn, preferring “three chords and the truth,” close-knit harmonies and old-fashioned twang to the modern country sound. Their mission is to make toes tap and taps flow. Band members include singer-songwriter Katie Curley, guitarist Brendan Curley, pedal steel guitarist Ron Raymond, percussionist/vocalist Sarah Kinsey and bassist/vocalist Andrew Dykeman.Read More
The Bakersfield Breakers are a three-piece instrumental group from New York City featuring Keith Yaun (Guitar), John Hamilton (Bass), and John DiGiulio (Drums).
The band’s mission is to reawaken the classic guitar-driven sound of 1950’s Bakersfield and the driving tunes of 1960’s surf rock. In addition to its large catalog of covers, the B Breakers also perform originals that fit perfectly with the vintage vibe and can comfortably cover gigs of anywhere from forty-five minutes to three hours.
The group has performed at many bars and clubs around New York including the Hill Country NYC and Brooklyn, Singlecut Beersmiths, and the late, lamented Rodeo Bar.
The Bakersfield Breakers have also been featured performers at the HOWL Festival in Tompkins Square Park, Arbor Fest at the Queens Botanical Garden, the Sea/Change Festival at the South Street Seaport, Deno’s Coney Island Wonder Wheel Music Fest, and the Livestock Festival.
In 2014 the band released its debut album “In The Studio With… the Bakersfield Breakers” which was very well-received and is available for digital download or on disc at the group’s shows.

Ryan Luce has a love for music that grew out of warm Buffalo days, watching his dad mowing the lawn while listening to local oldies and country stations. At 11 years old he picked up a guitar, and for the next eight years he poured his being into perfecting his craft. Hiding himself away in the bathroom of his parents’ home, he would record mini albums on his cellphone. Eventually, he realized he needed to get on a stage, and at 27 performed live for the first time at the Buffalo venue the Waiting Room.
In 2014, Luce took his talents to New York City, where he’s been steadily playing open mics at Pete’s Candy Store and O’Reilly’s Pub.Read More
