Upstate Rubdown is finally back for a full night of music at Snug Harbor in New Paltz. Fresh off the heels of our first ever national tour, we’ll be joined by Boston’s Twisted Pine for a heck of a homecoming!
Come prepared to holler ‘n swaller!
Drawing from every corner (and decade) of America’s musical landscape, Upstate Rubdown has been described as a “Hurricane of Sound”. The unique instrumentation includes Mandolin, Cajon, Upright bass, and alto/baritone saxophone all fronted by a powerhouse of 3-part female vocal harmony. The band can land perfectly in any setting from intimate house concerts to prominent festival stages. The material is innovative and forward thinking, but never at the expense of a great hook or a solid groove. Upstate Rubdown plays music to move you body and soul.
With their forthright songwriting, lush harmonies, and musical daring, Twisted Pine has quickly become one of the most acclaimed young string bands in the Northeast. The quartet creates a unique, infectious, joyful noise without limits, bringing the enveloping sound and pop hooks of indie music to an acoustic instrumental setting.
