Our next concert is on Saturday January 12, 2019, featuring:

Quarter Horse

Comprised of siblings and longtime friends, Quarter Horse was born in 2013 after many years of playing together on different projects.
The band - Vincent Costantino (guitar), John Rienzi (drums, mandolin), Sean Rienzi (bass), Nick Pirollo (vocals), Ryan Porciello (vocals, guitar) and Chris Brooks (vocals, keyboard, harmonica) - is self described as Americana with a sound further defined by a wide range of influences including folk, rock, alternative and jazz. Signatures of this sound are large three-part vocal harmonies, tandem lead guitar and sections of improvisation that showcase a unique instrumentation.
The band quickly adopted a model for songwriting, which employs the collaboration and creative input from each member. This is evident in the diversity of tracks found on River Flow EP, the band's first release in 2014. A self-titled debut album, produced by Andy Falco of the Infamous Stringdusters, was released in December 2016.
