March on Harrisburg Benefit Featuring PINE BARONS + CERAMIC ANIMAL + TIOGA at Boot & Saddle
HOSTED BY John Vettese / WXPN
Born among the pitch pines of southern New Jersey, Pine Barons is a brotherhood of four artists aiming to find their rock n roll destinies. With a wide spectrum of influences, from classic rock to folk, jazz, and punk, Pine Barons is an amalgamation of four personalities and visions whose friendship and respect shape their craft. After many half-magical high fives, this troupe of ultra-pals have scribed their plans to spread their music to the thinkers, friends, lovers, and magicians of the world and combat forces of malice.
“Their clever, playful name got our attention, and their snappy music held it.”
-John Vettese, The Key WXPN
“Although their name is rooted in the forest, Pine Barons’ music travels across wide open ranges and some rather rocky terrain, offering an interestingly mixed, yet fully organic, bag of influences and surprises.”
-Peter Quinton, Monmouth University
“The glum tapering of the summer season in songs that feel more alive than you’re probably thinking right now. Listen and you’ll hear the triumphant graveyard shifting of Creeper Lagoon or some mutant, less mahogany-covered version of the capital Beachwood Sparks. You’ll hear in them musky warmth, the smell of a toasty, wood-smoked flannel, rainbowed Autumn trees and a night cut wide open by a spitting orange bonfire.”
-Sean Moeller, Daytrotter
The recipe goes something like four fingers cask strength indie rock with a twist of surf grunge and a psychedelic chaser. It can be served wet and topless but never neat.
Critics say they are “…reminiscent of lo-fi baroque pop Dr. Dog, neo-psychedelia Tame Impala and blues rock Jack White”.
YouTube fans insist they sound like the “…the Black Keys, Kings of Leon, and The Growlers all in one”.
That Mag says “Ceramic Animal is one band to bet on.”
TIOGA. Where Greg Adams, Derrick Dieso, and Austin Paragas converge to make music. Greg’s impassioned vocals combined with Derrick’s precise and skillful guitar and Austin’s clever bass lines come together to form TIOGA, the musical meeting point of their lives.
