About the Show and the Artist:

Laini and the Wildfire

Laini and the Wildfire is a piano-fronted pop rock band with lots of sass and a little soul from New Haven, CT.  Since 2016, the band has been actively releasing music and performing at venues and festivals throughout the east coast.  They have been steadily releasing singles over the past year, redefining their eclectic sound which channels the soulful roots rock feel of artists like Lake Street Dive and Grace Potter.  

The band released their first full length album, Wandering, in late 2017, which awarded them the title of “Best Pop Band 2017” by Indie Voice Blog, as well as numerous write-ups from press outlets including The Hartford Courant, CD Baby, The Big Takeover, and Indie Spoonful.   Laini and the Wildfire has steadily gained recognition for their energetic and engaging performances, and is ready to re-emerge with an album’s worth of new material, set to be released later in 2022.


Colxy, is yet another moniker from the CT native Coley O’Toole who’s former piano rock outfit The Queen Killing Kings were no stranger to the Cafe 9 stage.  

Having spent the last 11 years touring as guitarist/keyboardist of the pop rock band We The Kings, Coley O’Toole returns to his roots in the New Haven music scene. This time he’ll take the stage as Colxy, back behind a piano with songs that are sure to make you dance and some that just might make you cry. Performing the forth coming album,“Who?”
