As a dynamic group that will either lull you with soft and delicate melodies, or hit you hard with a wall of sound when you least expect it, CT Indie Progressive band Standby is an experience that leaves you craving creative expression. After playing together for nearly 10 years, the group has found its sound taking roots in classic progressive rock while implementing a modern indie style. The result is a sound that twists and turns into exploding anthems, crooning trumpet melodies, adventurous prog riffs, and intricate textures, constantly filled with surprises.
Donnie Alexzander is three piece gloomy rock project from Hartford Connecticut. They released their debut LP, Little Miss Drift Afloat with Hartford’s independent label Funnybone Records in July of 2018.
Turtle Dad is a NY/CT indie rock music project lead by AP Flynn, who writes, records, and produces the music. The group formed at Western Connecticut State University in October 2018 and released their debut EP, “Indoor/Outdoor” on Christmas Day later that year. Since then, the group has been focused on playing live throughout Connecticut.
