The Milestones
The Milestones
Rock music gets compartmentalized a lot. Punk, Indie, Classic, Grunge – some bands define one particular genre and others are able to mix and mingle the differing characteristics of each. The Milestones give us music that meshes the best qualities of each genre and provide us with solid rock sounds that doesn’t need it’s own specific category. They’re a little bit in-your-face like punk, they’re a little growly like grunge, and they get you moving like indie-dance rock. The Milestones are simply a ragtag bunch of indie-dance rockers looking for cheap thrills and parlor tricks!

Silent Old Mtns.
Silent Old Mtns. began in the Spring of 2011, when a one-off concert snowballed into the full time regional act that they are today. Their blend of Indie Rock, Folk, and Poetry create a style all their own that has earned them a quick and loyal following.

Cheshi is composed of emotional souls constructing music for the tender at heart.

Fronted by songwriter Ashli Cheshire (the bands namesake), this queer, eco-driven pop-rock deathlord, sings about the challenges and awakenings that are born within a deep need for change and renewal in our society.
Cheshi's concepts arise from confrontations with hatred, bigotry, homophobia, the destruction of the earth, the right-wing agenda, above all: honestly with oneself.
All of this is woven in to an illustrious and powerful platform, screamed or lulled into an experience that brings a well of emotion from an audience.

Lifted by the musical prowess of Trevor Williams (a Connecticut native who has been performing professionally since he was 15, also a music teacher), Matt Jackowski (performing bass since his teens, in a wide variety of styles of which he says the heart stays at the center of it all), and Evan Owens (who's drumming style is inspired by Black
Sabbath and Madonna).

Described most recently as “a large pack of twizzlers, mixed with a long black cloak, and a pinch of old stairs”.
