Entertainment + Music + Nightlife

Kat & Brad - Drawing from 50s and 60s pop, American Songbook standards, and much more, this vibrant duo channels and fuses these influences through two voices, a guitar, and violin to bring you a mixture of original songs and dusted off covers from the past. The two consist of Brad Bensko on Vocals and Guitar, and Kathleen Parks (of Twisted Pine) on Vocals, and Five-Stringed Fiddle.

Will Leet is a Brooklyn based singer-songwriter, also known as the lead guitarist of Sammy Rae & the Friends. Partnering up with lyricist Chris Burns, Will has created a collection of songs over the last 7 years that can be described as "campfire rock with a city groove." Not-too-sentimental lyrics and acoustic guitar soundscapes juxtapose the fast pace of life in New York City and the beckoning call of rural America. With influences ranging from Kacey Musgraves to the Grateful Dead, one can expect an eclectic mix of folk, rock, country, and baroque pop.
