The Sweater Songs performing Weezer's "Blue Album", "Pinkerton" and more!
What started out as a fun idea to mix up their regular original music sets has now turned into a huge event with every show bringing out more and more fans. The Sweater Songs perform early Weezer albums in their entirety such as iconic classics “The Blue Album” and “Pinkerton” which include songs like “Buddy Holly”, “Say It Ain’t So”, “El Scorcho”, “The Good Life” and of course their namesake “Undone/Sweater Song.”

The band is made up of five life-long musicians who are all extremely active in the New York City music scene. Wes Hutchinson, Oscar Albis Rodriguez, Mike Chiavaro, Gunnar Olsen and Robert Cooper have been playing, writing and recording original music for almost ten years but they have all agreed that The Sweater Songs is possibly the most fun they could ever have in an evening.

The Sweater Songs pay homage to the “Buddy Holly” video (as well as geek rock in general) by wearing cardigans, collared shirts, ties and those classic thick-rimmed glasses—which they’ve been known to hand out at their shows as well. They’ve sold out several venues in New York City (which is no easy feat) and are now playing bigger venues to crowds of 600-1000 people. “We actually have legitimate, loyal fans” says guitarist/singer Wes Hutchinson “it’s the coolest thing to look out and see a massive crowd of people singing along to every song with us. Apparently we’re not the only ones who like Weezer.”

The band continues to add momentum with more shows and demand coming in every week. Spend an evening with The Sweater Songs and you’ll see why so many fans adore this band—and don’t be surprised if you find yourself singing “Ooooweeeeeooo I look just like Buddy Holly!” for days after.

New York's Finest does REGGATTA DE BLANC (The Police)
Featuring Mark Rinzel (The Jupiter Deluxe, The Neutron Drivers and Bubble) – one of the few humans who can play bass and sing like 70′s era Sting, New York’s Finest boasts Oscar Bautista (Session musician, Broadway guitarist “American Idiot”, “Kinky Boots” ) on guitar and Alan Camlet (Paul Collins Beat, Hoboken Recorders recording studio Producer/Engineer) on drums. They play with the intensity of the teenagers they were when cutting their teeth on The Police. Before the “Lute Album,” before he lived in a castle, before the seven-hour yogic sex sessions, and before that Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot, Sting was once cool. New York’s Finest will remind you just how much you miss that guy.
The Ephlats
The Ephlats
Founded in 1956, The Williams College Ephlats is a co-ed a cappella group from Williams College. The group derives its name from the college mascot (a purple cow affectionately known as Ephelia, or an Eph for short), and is the most enduring a cappella group at Williams, with an alumni network of over 300 former members. We sing from a wide range of musical genres, from popular songs to jazz standards to original compositions. We are a motley collection of men and women, singers and songwriters, dancers and drifters, geniuses and idiots, poets and mathematicians... you get the point. We're really just a bunch of people who love coming together to make music with our mouths.
