Poor Man's Whiskey:
Northern California’s outlaw music bards bring a reputation for high-energy live shows and an incomparable fusion of bluegrass/old time, southern rock, and old school jam to stages and festivals worldwide. Poor Man’s Whiskey has been growing exponentially in the past 5 years, selling out venues across the country such as the legendary Fillmore in SF.This “High-Octane Hootenanny” will certainly delight those interested in a foot-stomping good time. Poor Man’s Whiskey has evolved into a ragged, spontaneous beast pulling from equally deep wells of story-telling originals, expertly crafted covers and zany on-stage shenanigans. PMW has released 6 studio albums and have a stunning repertoire to choose songs from creating a new show every night. In addition to their upbeat original sets Poor Man’s Whiskey have developed special late night “tribute sets” with their original bluegrass/americana twists which include “Dark Side of the Moonshine” (bluegrass interpretation of the classic Pink Floyd album) , “Graceland” (tribute to the classic Paul Simon album), “Old and In the Way”, “Tribute to Allman Brothers Band”, and “Tribute to Kate Wolf”. Crowds of all ages will sing, dance and have a good time.

The Old Main:
Hailing from the foothills of the Adirondack mountains in upstate New York, The Old Main has drawn favorable comparisons to bands such as The Avett Brothers, The Band, and Dawes while reatining a sound and style uniquely their own. They've been called Folk/Rock, Adirondack Folk, foot stomping Folk, alt-Americana, and all sorts of other things. But regardless of the adjective, an or/categorization used, they've developed a voice of all their own through their high energy live performances and the raw acoustic sound created through their use of acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, drums, and ringing vocal harmonies.
An acoustic singer-songwriter, Dylan Carroll was raised in Stewartsville, New Jersey. He grew up around music, as his dad was also a musician who performed often in college. He taught himself guitar at age 12, drawing inspiration from The Beatles, CSNY, James Taylor, and his own father. As a singer and a writer, his influences follow a wide range of genres, including music industry greats Billy Joel, Eminem, and Mumford & Sons. A lot of the musicians he currently listens to all influence his personal style greatly, such as Gregory Alan Isakov, Ed Sheeran, and Ray LaMontagne. Dylan performs at open mic nights and a few concerts around Syracuse’s campus. He is also a musician for a volunteer organization called Musicians on Call, where he sings to hospital patients around New York City every month.
