The Old Main from Utica, NY bring their Americana/folk rock to The Riverboat Bar for their Alex Bay debut
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 retaining 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 and/or categorization used, they've developed a voice 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.
Seth Becker (guitar/vox) and Nash Robb (stand up bass/vox), formerly of upstate NY favorites The Birdseed Bandits, make up the core of The Old Main while the addition of Mitch Eckler (drums/vox) really fills out their sound.
