“These guys represent what I love about music…great playing, thoughtful lyrics, and musicians who actually enjoy playing together!”- Jay Moberg – WUMB Radio, on Pesky J. Nixon
“You’d think she was born on stage… she makes it look that easy. She’s got two EPs to her name thus far but we predict a long and lasting career as she continues on and makes more and more waves within the acoustic music scene.”— Kathy Sands-Boehmer, No Depression, on Kat Quinn
Bombastic yet brilliant these folks from New England exude a genuine musical authenticity and mirth on stages up and down the East Coast. Drawing influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy southern bluegrass, and the sardonic yet wry wit of New England’s localized folk scenes, Pesky J. Nixon (PJN) creates an atmosphere both inviting and challenging for audiences. Compelling harmonies and narratives rein in disparate instrumentation including- zydeco style accordion, virtuosic mandolin, a variety of tribal percussion, and a myriad of string instrumentation. With rich harmonies and musical versatility PJN brings a unique brand of infectious energy and stage banter to every stage they grace. At times putting on a show that borders on brotherly bickering these boys specialize in bringing the audience into their world, songs, and stories.
Opening the evening will be Kat Quinn. an indie-pop songstress based in New York City. In March of 2013, Quinn was featured on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s “Battle of the Instant Songwriters,” where she wrote and performed an original song, “Clouds Are People Too,” gaining fans nationwide. She has released three EPs, and her songs have been featured in film, TV, and ads.
