The Right Offs
The Right Offs are a New Haven, CT. based rock n' roll trio who consistently channel every ounce of joy, grit, and energy they can muster into their music. Fronted by the soulful and instantly memorable vocals of singer/songwriter/guitarist Max Loignon, the band also includes the dynamic rhythm section of Than Rolnick on bass/backing vocals and drummer Bob Breychak. Of their live performances the New Haven Independent said "The Right Offs sounded tight, even tighter than the band is on its last release, and more ferocious, raging around the twists and turns in the band's clever, tightly wound material," while the #NewHavenMusicblog called one of their recent shows "one of the most high energy performances at Cafe Nine in recent memory...". In 2016 the Right Offs self-released their debut album Quiet Down to rave reviews in local press. Chip McCabe's 'The Metal Dad' blog named Quiet Down as the best non-metal album of 2016, while the 'Twangri-La' blog commented, after a favorable review of the album, "I can only imagine their stage presence." In March 2017 NYC's The Deli Magazine named The Right Offs as one of the Best New England Emerging Artists of the year, putting in writing what everyone already knows: The Right Offs are a force to be reckoned with now and in the future beyond. Currently, the boys are working on their sophomore LP due for release in 2018.
The Eric Ducoff Band
The Eric Ducoff Band is a New England-based trio that is heavily rooted in the sounds of vintage blues music. But their sound doesn't end there. Each set also incorporates a wide array of guitar-driven "roots-based" rock and Americana stylings as well.
The band members, Eric Ducoff (guitar/vox), Jeff Berg (bass/vox) and Nick Tosacan (drums) are also 3/4 of the nationally-acclaimed Ryan Hartt & the Blue Hearts. The Blue Hearts were voted CT's "Best Blues Band" by the readers of the Hartford Advocate in 2005, 2007 and 2008.
In addition to the Eric Ducoff Band's busy weekend schedule, you can also catch them as the Wednesday night house band at the renowned Griswold Inn in Essex, CT.
